This is Curufin. I'm probably drunk or killing somebody, but please leave a message and I'll get back to you as soon as I can.

(Ha ha. I'm kidding. But do leave me a message! XD)

Oh Absalom

[ On his way down the hillside, down into the valley where there must be a path or a road, or at least a stream he can follow. Valley pathways always lead somewhere. That is, if to be somewhere is what he wants. He is still not sure about that. Maybe what he really wants is to be nowhere. But he is a strong, determined man, and he forges on, by instinct if not by reason. He halts suddenly, struck by knowledge, like a whisper out of the night. ]

My son is still alive. I know it.

[ He doesn't expect ever to meet him again, however, not in life or death. Their paths are severed. And that was the case long before Curufin and his brothers attacked Doriath, trying to wrest the one available Silmaril from Luthien's son, Dior. But now a weight is lifted from his shoulders, and he can go on knowing that at least, somewhere under moon or stars or sun, Celebrimbor follows his own destiny. He almost smiles. ]

Time goes By

[ Leaves blow softly. He climbs to a hilltop. There is a circle of pines here, and he leans against one. He looks out over a forested valley. The sun gleams on the pine needles except where there is shade, and a blue sky arches over the far side of the valley. Time goes by, and the sun slips down behind the ridge. So silent is this place that he thinks he must be the last sentient being in all the world. Yet, it is peaceful. Peace is not something he much understands...and yet it is strangely welcome. ]

[ He looks westward and sucks a breath in sharply. His dark gray eyes widen as he steps out from under the trees to see if he really saw what he thinks he saw. What he sees is the planet Venus. (Or, in his world, Earendil's ship Vingilot, bearing the white flame of one of Feanor's jewels.) ]

Surely that is a Silmaril? [ He is seeing what his brothers Maedhros and Maglor saw on the eve of the War of Wrath, not long before Maedhros' death and at some unspecified interval before Maglor's. But he doesn't know about that; it happened after his own time had come. ]

Then... [ He means: That one, at least, is safe from me and my brothers. ]

Some time after the slaughter in Doriath

[He finds himself lying face up on fallen leaves and other forest-floor debris, under the trees of summer. Strange, considering he met his death in the dead of winter. He gets up slowly, gazing all around.]

...Where is this place?

[He turns around and starts to walk, stumbles, halts again.]

This is not Menegroth. [He would know.]

Why am I even here? I failed to recover the Simarils. Should not the Dark have claimed me? Or if not that -- if instead by some miracle I am released from my oath -- then am I now trapped forever in the Halls of Mandos?

[Increasing distress.]

...I'll walk. I'll find somebody. Someone will know where we are. Someone will know what has happened to my brothers.

Character Biography

The Elvish songs and epics of the First Age tend to view identity as more collective than individual. Hence, Curufin's history is the history of his family, and it contains only a few brief stories that are about him personally. But such as it is, here it is. NOTE: THIS POST IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

If you have a problem, a concern, or an issue with me or my character, I am always willing to communicate. (See the contact post.) I am a good listener, and I will not judge you for your thoughts or feelings.

Be specific. Tell me what I or my character said or did that was a problem for you or your character. How exactly did this affect you or your character?

Note: If you are trying to get me to change my basic characterization, I will certainly listen to what you have to say, but my decision on these matters is mine alone. I have known many players who were into collaborative characterization. That's fine, it is their style -- but it is not mine.

However, I am always up for collaborative PLOTTING! If you have an idea, contact me at this journal, and I will be happy to accommodate you.
