A shadow lies on Thranduil and his forest and only a power stronger than the darkness of old can save them. Grief and loss have turned him into a king with a heart of ice and if he is ever to find redemption, the chains of guilt and remorse holding him captive must be broken. But he is running out of time and if he fails, the Woodland Realm with fall with him.
When Anna, a mere human, finds herself at his mercy and he mysteriously chooses to keep her alive, she is faced with a choice: heal his broken heart or find her way home; a decision that might tear her apart or make her whole again. 
A tale of bittersweet love, sacrifice and the search for absolution.
Thranduil x OC set during the Hobbit timeline. 
Angsty romance with a fair amount of drama and an eventual happy ending. Possibly. Maybe. No promises though.
