Introduction: Welcome, readers, to the debris of a fallen fic! Originally, this was part of a small arc of unusual visions on the last Queen of Númenor, which I had never seen in fanfiction before and which I thought were somehow due. This one was based on the version given in the History of the Akallabêth of HoME XII: The Peoples of Middle-Earth, where Tar-Míriel/ Ar-Zimraphel turned to Ar-Pharazôn willingly. As I was writing it, however, I realised that to follow that version meant to show such a different view of events that people could be confused or at least weirded out if they didn´t have an explanation. And then those explanations began to pop inside my head, and they became a legion of plotbunnies biting my fingers and my ears, dragging me off this fic and into a new, much larger one where they could all find a home of their own. (Estimated date of publication: February 2007)
So what I did with the fic I had already written was to use parts for scenes and drabbles. Those drabbles and scenes are those that I have published here (sometimes I´m not even sure that they make sense), and they have no connection whatsoever with my still-unpublished Númenor Fic With Caps... the heroine´s character, for example, is substantially different.
