Ysilme, that does sound wonderful, I am so jealous. There's something magical about a really good concert.

I've been to the most wonderful concert yesterday, Swedish Folk string trio Väsen. The music was so beautiful, and it felt so much like Middle-earth, too. (now I need to figure out

:D this fic keeps mutating. So far it's sprouted four OCs and an unexpected plot twist which impacts stories that come chronologically later in the series...it's a nightmare but I love it!

Ooooo!  I have never seen an AU where Luthian goes to the Feanorion’s side!

 

I have to agree with you that Melian and Thingol’s relationship is a bit creepy, but I had mostly focused on how they got together (it seemed like she’d enthralled him or something), but thinking about her continuing to influence his mind, and it being her behind so many of his bad decisions, wow!  That’s interesting!  And appropriately spooky :D

I am with you. Melian's relationship with Thingol is seriously creepy. I mean she lures him in To a forest and enchants him for years.....and that's just the start of it. Not exactly a good basis for a relationship.

I am not a Luthien fan. She was too goody, goody for me.....and she got Finrods blood on her hands too, and he is a favourite of mine. Beren and Luthien...yuck!

This Luthien however was quite spooky. 

I did wonder right through it if Celegorm and Huan were one and the same. :-) 



Author's Response:

I actually read a post on tumblr where its theorised that Thingol acted the way he did because he wished to get away from his wife. He was enchanted, traumatised and possibly viewed everything what his "wife" counseled him to do as the one thing he shouldn't. Even if it meant messing up even more. My guess is that Thingol would've been a very different person, had it not been for Melian.

And yeah, canon Luthien is a little controversial. She has blood on her hands, like everyone else in the First Age. But I still like her well enough. She tried, at least.

But nope. This time Huan is just a dog :D
