The Toymaker's Tale, by Kaylee Arafinwiel

Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Title: The Toymaker's Tale
Rating: PG
Theme: B2MEM 2015
Elements: Bilbo commissioned lots of toys from Dale for his 111th Birthday. Whose workshop got that commission? What sorts of toys did they make? How many did they make? Who delivered them? – Dreamflower
Author's Notes: Written for the “First Lines” prompt from B2MEM 2012, also: “My father and mother should have stayed in ___, where they met and married, and where I was born.” Also, I disclaim one line by Tolkien.
Summary: Tâduiniel, a toymaker in Dale of Arnorian extraction, tells the story of how she inherited her trade, and got the commission that would change her life. Set in my "Isildurchil Dithen" 'verse, though Faramir (who is 18 at this point) does not appear.
