Change One Thing, See What Happens

Challenge Details

What would happen if one thing was changed during the Silmarillion or the Lord of the Rings?

What if Turin's father, Hurin, had given into Morgoth and had told him where Gondolin was? Would it have fallen? Would Elrond, or any of his kids, for that matter, have ever been born? What about his father? What if Arwen had left Middle-earth? How would that have affected Aragorn? What if Glorfindel would have lost to the Balrog, or the elves had never gone to Aman?

The possibilities are really endless. You would just write a story about the consequences of changing one thing, whether simple or castrophic.
