Itaril storylines? Can't Post

I've been thinking about how a character like Itaril could be worked into the story, and it strikes me that we can look to literature (classic and otherwise) for inspiration.


There's the "Romeo and Juliet" approach:

A love beyond death! Despite their height and species difference, Itaril the Wood Elf found true love in the arms of Fili the Dwarf. But they were torn asunder by war and greed, not to mention the quarrel between her uncle Thranduil, King of the Mirkwood Elves, and Thorin Oakenshield, heir to the throne of Durin. Can these star-crossed lovers reunite and heal their peoples' differences before the greatest battle of the age?


Or the "Midsummer Night's Dream" approach:

Merriment ensues when a stray band of Dwarves accidentally stumbles into the autumn revels of King Thranduil! The Elf Legolas seizes the chance to get back at his unfaithful girlfriend Itaril, whom he tricks into falling in love with Bombur the Dwarf. Meanwhile, Thranduil imprisons Thorin, leader of the Dwarves, in revenge for an old quarrel. Bilbo the Hobbit is forced to use his magic ring to save the day. Will our lovers reunite? Will Thranduil and Thorin settle their differences? Will everyone dance and sing "Tra-la-la-lally" at the end?


Or the "Pride and Prejudice" approach:

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single Dwarf in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.

Or the "Anna Karenina" approach:

Happy Dwarves and Elves are all alike; every unhappy Dwarf and Elf is unhappy in their own way.


Or even the "Twilight" approach:

Elf maiden Itaril loved the Dwarf Kili the minute she saw him because his beard was so sparkly. But he was concealing a secret that could tear them apart! The Elf Lord Legolas also has the hots for Itaril (who is kind of plain and has brown hair and isn't very popular -- in short, she's exactly like you). He has a dreadful secret, too. Will Team Kili or Team Legolas win the day? More importantly, how many sequels can we squeeze out of this idea?

Other ideas? Angelic


With caffeine, all things are possible.

The pity of Bilbo will screw up the fate of many.
