Our May choice is a story from the Silmarillion category: A Brother’s Oath – Finrod and Aegnor by Lalaith_Elerrina. This bittersweet piece is based on the only canon romantic relationship between an Elf and a mortal woman to be found in Tolkien’s works.

“She never wed, Aegnor,” Finrod spoke softly.
Aegnor shuddered softly at this, and his head drooped. “You speak those words as if they would bring me comfort, Finrod,” he muttered. “They do not. I wish that she had wed another. That her heart had moved beyond me, and she had learned to love again.”
