It's literally just for the exchange, there's no expectation on anyone else to write anything for it :) I'll leave it up though. I gave myself some ideas when I was writing it, tbh...

I don’t think yours are ‘out there’, just quite deep :)

Or if I am over with her and the internet there is often spotty

But at some point. Sometimes I write in the hospital if I am waiting for Mum, but often I can’t get internet so I just do some writing

Well, if you keep your letter up, Narya, I can look at it, and see if I get any ideas, I don’t mean for this exchange

And in all fairness, the only obligation on the writer/artist is to produce something with the characters matched on and avoid DNWs, not to follow the prompts and worldbuilding tags.

Some of mine are a bit out there, I doubt I'll get matched on any of the obscure stuff.

Oh gosh, Spiced, I wouldn't expect you to <3 you have so much going on! Although it was your wonderful Coldagnir who prompted me to ask for original Balrog characters ;)

Your requests were interesting though, Narya, a bit beyond me, though!

Story notes:

This is a direct sequel to “Fire Dancing Upon Our Souls” but having said that I do not think you need to have read that first to understand this. The only important information I think you need to know is that a few years previous Legolas suffered a serious injury in Minas Tirith. (A wall fell on him) 

The title is taken from a quote by Martin Luther King 

“I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality”

 

The inspiration for this particular story? What we see happening right now in present day USA.
