A Time of Healing by EldarinPrincess
[ - ]
Summary: She was born in the Blessed Realm, oldest daughter of Caranthir. Caught up in the Oath of Fëanor unwillingly, Vanimë is taken to Middle-earth after her mother abandons her and her younger sister on the docks of Alqualondë during the Kin-slaying. With the Curse of the Valar already at work, the sisters learn to survive on their own when they are thrown out from their father's home, shedding their true identities and taking Sindarin namesakes. The series chronicles Vanimë's life. The first story,Ancient Wounds, is portrayed through Vanimë's diary, which is delivered to her mother in Valinor by her sister Vanië. Like the elven bards who could conjure images with their song words, the diary, when "read", allows said reader to live in Vanimë's life story. It is narrated in part by her, and other times told from the point of view of the people she has interactions with. The story begins with the first attack on the Golden Wood, and Vanimë is sent to Mirkwood to seek Thranduil's help. Upon her arrival, tragedy has struck, and she is forced to choose to either help him regain his kingdom, or take matters into her own hands. She must confront her own past and learn to accept her fate, or risk watching the kingdom's decay through her inactivity. All of this Vanimë's mother, and her mother's husband, "read" through the diary; and they are forced to understand things they have chosen to ignore. The effects of the Kin-slaying over the centuries across both lands and through many different people are also detailed. The second story,The Circles of the Worlds, is a current work-in-progress. It starts after the War of the Ring, portraying the losses faced, and the Elves' attempts at finding their new places in the dawn of the Men.
