Woman of the Secret Shadow

Author: Armariel

Title: Woman of the Secret Shadow

Rating: PG-13

Theme: Believe it or Not

Elements: Chilling

Beta: None

Author's Notes: This story may be regarded as somewhat AU, since Thuringwethil, who is mentioned in the “Tale of Beren and Luthien”, is not actually described as a vampire, but merely appearing as one. However, I thought it would be fun and interesting to depict her as the first vampire. Those who have read “Journey out of Darkness” may recognize the character of Gaergath, who claims to be the son of Thuringwethil. Familiarity with that story is helpful but not necessary in order to understand this one.

Summary: The story of Thuringwethil, and how she became the mother of all vampires.
