Fanfic: The Saga of Vaenomar, by Oakenshield89

I’ve been enjoying the following story, written and illustrated by Oakenshield89, about the fate of a human woman raised by elves, who has the misfortune of being captured by a band of gritty dwarves led by a younger Lord Thorin.  I figured it was time to share!

From Oakenshield89:
“Though this is a form of fan fiction it still is almost entirely my own story, filling in (though in an unTolkienesque fashion) a large chunk of the Ereborian refugees’ lives. A few borrowed elements, i.e. characters, place names, historical figures, place it ‘pre-Hobbit’ and quest for Erebor. Though not based on, it became somewhat like a ‘Middle Earth Snow White Story’ and so- bon appetit (for reading, that is). I hope you enjoy The Saga of Vaenomar.”

Growing up with the Elves of Taurëmith.

Chapter 13

Chapter 14
Life as a filthy dwarf is not what Vaenomar is used to, but perhaps there is some respite.

Chapter 15
Almost a year has passed since the elf Tairiel lost Beruthiel to the Dwarves, but her anger has not faded with time.
In that same time, Vaenomar’s fighting skills have become the pride of her dwarven tutor, but until they are tested in battle (something Thorin has forbidden), neither will be satisfied.

Chapter 16
Thorin and his band (Vaenomar not included) are searching for goblin raiders, but the goblins are waiting in expectation.  The time has come for Vaenomar to follow her heart and brave enemy blades and teeth, and her own lord’s wrath.

Chapter 17

Chapter 18
