And the Stars Dimmed by Anguirel

Author: 2milkteas aka Anguirel
Title: And the Stars Dimmed
Rating: G
Theme: January Potluck
Elements: 16.It is said of the earliest of Men: "Yet it is told that ere long they met Dark Elves in many places, and were befriended by them and Men became the companions and disciples in their childhood of these ancient folk, wanderers of the Elven-race who never set out upon the paths to Valinor..." Tell of such a meeting or such a relationship.
Beta: phantasmagoryx
Author's Notes: The Avari are cool.
Summary: An Avari makes himself known to one of the Second Born
Word Count: 100


His order was to leave them alone.
They are unaware of our presence, let it stay that way!
He could not help himself though when he saw the little one wander from her mother’s side into the wilds. He followed her through the treetops as she traveled into the forest depth, humming a tune in a language that he could not understand. It was not until he heard her sobs that no command could keep him from gathering the child in his arms. Holding the girl then and seeing the wonder in her eyes, he saw no stars but sunlight.

I know right?! I would've had a full story if I didn't use all of January reading about them! Ah well, perhaps next time..

Glad you liked it! :D

This was such a wonderful encounter! I can see his heart go out to the little child, and see a friendship born.

I don't even think the private avari could let a child suffer such a fate. I hope to continue their friendship and go into the relationship between the tribe of men and the avari. Thank you for the lovely review :)

Children can often bring people together who in the end so benefit one another! Thanks for the beauty of this one!

This was my first drabble, and it was quite a challenge trying to find the right words. I hope to write more of them. Thank you, I'm really glad you liked it :)

The last sentence of this is just golden, the way you showed Men, too, being worthy of wonder as children of the Sun. Thank you!

I can imagine the Avari might have interesting views on the sun and moon, I tried to incorporate it as best I could. :) Thank you!

Lovely. As is always the case with a good drabble, the last line is a clincher!

I went ahead and posted it there. I think I did it right, I haven't uploaded a story in years. :|
