I have only one more Canon Couple to go!

B2MeM Challenge: 2016 Memories; 2012 BINGO, "Canon Couples", O-68
Format: Poetry, Dribble
Genre: Romance
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Aegnor, Andreth
Pairings: Aegnor/Andreth
Creators' Notes (optional): I began some of these dribbles for the "Canon Couples" card in 2012, and decided to see how many more of them I could complete this year.
This one was difficult. I had to research them, because I only barely knew the bones of their story. It was in reading her conversation with Finrod, and seeing the rather bleak view of death and the fate of Men that she held even then, that I began to see my way with this. I still feel a bit shaky on First Age ground, and hope that I got it right.
Summary: Andreth mourns the Elf she had grown to love.

Andreth Mourns Aegnor

Wise I am accounted, a woman of lore and knowledge.
But was it wisdom to give my heart to
one of the Eldar, though he loved me?
The Nameless one has marred the world.
My belov├ęd meant to live forever
has now left me grieving.
I cannot find him.
I will die,
We are

Oh yes, poor Andreth. I wrote this pairing earlier, for "Love Unfulfilled in Dorthonion" inspired by the "Like a Bathing Boromir" prompt (Boromir of Ladros being Andreth's father) but you said it so much more succinctly and poignantly than I did. I very much enjoyed this dribble. *goes to see who's left...*

That is so bitterly sad. But it seems right to me - although I am no First Age scholar at all.

A great grief she feels, and I can see her personality so well represented in this dribble.
