Far into the rolling lands of the North a child was born into this time of blossoming peace, to grow as homes are once again rebuilt.
This is the first story of my original character, Anwyn which I am putting together piece by piece, Its already finished but now I am bringing it together.
Please note that this story was written cooperatively with xFanarix whose fanfic is also posted on this site.

1. Prologue: Grief and Hope by Anwyn [Reviews - 10] (2446 words)
I would like to dedicate this story to two ladies who deeply inspire me, and who without the crafting and writing of this story would not have been possible.
2. Chapter 2: Riders in the night by Anwyn [Reviews - 1] (2452 words)
I have been working at this chapter for weeks now, Its been changed times beyond count but I would like to get on with the story, though its still very much ongoing but going back and writing it from the beginning is proving to be a tricky challenge for me but most definately worth it. There are going to be some parts of this chapter which will not make a great deal of sense until further on in the story, I hate having "loose ends" so trust me when I say I will be striving to have everything making sense...evantually, lol.
Just keep in mind, I have been writing as this character for years and even now there are still new things I am learning about her so not all will be revealed right away.
Hopefully I will have the next chapter up fairly soon as well, Its just really a matter of putting all I have written into some kind of order and then making sure it all flows.
14. Chapter 15: "To set foot where you never did, Father" by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (3756 words)
This first part of this chapter was written by another author on this site under the name Spiced Wine as her OC "Vanimórë" and the second part was written by myself, these parts will be denoted below.
15. Chapter 16: - Vanimórë by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (4369 words)
"Vanimórë" is the OC character of Spiced Wine, and therefore copyright to her, I take absolutely no credit but am "borrowing" him for a moment to tell this story ;)
16. Chapter 18: Madness by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (3444 words)
Vanimórë is creation and property of Spiced Wine, and he is visiting for part of this story and I take absolutely no credit for those parts of the story, though I will mark which parts are my own.
22. Chapter 24: Guests of honour by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (1685 words)
Vanimore and Elgalad are both creation and interlectual property of xFanarix Though does anyone truely own Van? lol. The first part of the chapter was written by xFanarix and the second part by Anwyn.
23. Chapter 25: Elgalad Meluion by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (1009 words)
Vanimórë and Elgalad are the creative of property, I am just lucky enough to have them join in for part of this story :D
First part is written by xFanarix and the second part by Anwyn.
24. Chapter 26: Little Thief by Anwyn [Reviews - 1] (1503 words)
The story has rather moved forward from the last chapter as I had to unfortunately cut away some of the original story, nothing huge and it will not affect the plot. So this moves the story forward by a few days.
39. Chapter 39: Patience by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2389 words)
This chapter written by Anwyn
It back tracks slightly taking in what has just happened from Anwyn's perspectively, I am putting the chapters up in the order they were plaed on a seperate site as posts.
43. Chapter 43: Love for a Prince by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2182 words)
On a bit of a side note I made a video for "Child of Storms" a couple of weeks ago now, but didn't completely finish it until only a few days ago becuase of the impossible time I had trying to get the music in a format that would work.
For those of you intrested in seeing it, It can be found here.
I will warn you it has a kind of large *spoiler* for those of you reading who have not not yet figured who is Anwyn's father yet, Though that will be explained in upcoming chapters but there is a little bit to come before we get to that part if I remeber correctly, But if you already know than you are good to go. It came out as more of a trailer of sorts and not as I would have liked but Windows Media Maker is amongst the most finicky of programs I have ever come across so considering what I had to work with I thought it turned out fairly well.

54. Chapter 54: Make a Memory by Anwyn [Reviews - 1] (2694 words)
You wanna make a memory
You wanna steal a piece of time
You can sing the melody to me
And I can write a couple of lines
This chapter was quite abit of a "hump" for me to get over mainly becuase I do not write, hmmm, "adult situations" terribly often but becuase it was giving me such a difficult time I still forced myself to do it anyways, Its how I get overthings, no matter how fraustrated and bothered I get I force myself to do whatever is troubling me anyways.
This is one of those chapters that I feel proably warrants the entire story have an NC 17 rating though its not terribly graphic and I really hope it doesn't come off as "smutty" either becuase I personally don't like smut though I do like Erotica, and while I don't think I can write Erotica I like to read it and there is definately a difference between the two.
Anyways, Since this chapter gave me such a hard time, this is really one of those times I would love to hear some feedback for it to see what worked, what didn't work so much and so on. I would really apprechiate it becuase again I don't write this kind of thing terribly often and I always adore hearing what people think so if you could take a moment to give me some of your thoughts in a construtive manner that would be excellent.
57. Chapter 57: Distant Thunder by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2098 words)
To anyone who has been following this, I applogize it has not really been updated with any regularity. I have been quite busy of late and while I can't really do much to change that I do not like not having time to write, If I do not get something done on one of the stories I am working on I feel like quite the failure, which makes it even more difficult to write and so the viscious cycle continues around and I get even less done writing anywise. Anyways, I hope to pull myself from this bit of a slump soon as I have put a deadline on myself for getting this story put up and marked as "complete" So hopefully I can manage it as I reworking little bits of the story, and adding new parts as I go along.
As always, Constructive feedback is always apprechiated and welcomed, and I am off to bed becuase I have managed to get myself worked into quite the tight little knot about my writing tonight and I do like to hear what people think but it has honestly exhausted me.
59. Chapter 59: Lovers in a dangerous time by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (1787 words)
This chapter was written by Anwyn
Alright, I am getting slightly less creative with chapter names, lol, and this one was actually inspired by a Barenaked Ladies Song, lol, Enjoy.
64. Chapter 64: Daughter of the Land, Son of the Sea by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (3222 words)
Warning: This chapter contains some sexual content, I would not consider it terribly graphic but I do hate springing such things on a read without any sort of warning, I realized that the story overall has a warning of sexual content but that does not apply to every single chapter.
67. Chapter 67: Scorned Friendship by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (3524 words)
I am back after quite a long hiatus, It was never my intention to put this story on hold for so long but due to other obligations I have not had the time to write as I would wish though it was always my intention to finish this story and the others that follow.
My next chapter will certainly not be so long in coming.
As always, feedback is always more than weclome and very much apprechiated.
68. Chapter 68: Rest now, my love by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2330 words)
After feeling so completely fraustrated and fed up with the last chapter it would seem my muse has taken some pity on me and I was able to write this chapter in only a few hours, which is quite quick for me, I have no idea how long it takes anyone else to write a descently sized chapter but thats a personal best for me...
69. Chapter 69: Unexpcted Consequences by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (1211 words)
This chapter jump's forward a couple of months, I don't like to have gap's in my story but I am just moving thing's along a little touch.
This chapter was written by xFanarix who did some writing in this story as Eldarion, Son of King Elessar and heir to the throne of Gondor.
70. Chapter 70: Questions of Duty by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2658 words)
This chapter was written by myself and Fanari and will be denoted as such, I would like to use this moment to point out that when COS was originally written it was done in more of a RPG format in a sense so put it all together into a longer story I am putting the parts together to make chapters which is why they are sometimes split like this.
80. Chapter 80 "Ask me anything" by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (963 words)
This chapter was written by xFanarix
In hindsight I should have combined with my last chapter, as this was written in part by Fanari and so I tend to post each "chapter" indivually so that it less confusing, that is why sometimes it seems like the chapter might end a touch adbruptly.
86. Final Chapter: I belong to you, You belong to me-Forever by Anwyn [Reviews - 0] (2778 words)
