A Different Kind of Heaven

There are a MILLION Girl-Falls-Into-Middle-Earth stories out there. All of them are LotR or the Hobbit. And to be frank, I want a Silmarillion centric one, just to see how it turns out. For... Funsies... One might say.
Eve, celebrating her birthday on New Year's Eve, ends up, well... Let's just say she isn't in New England anymore.
Join the first story of Eve's new journey in her new life among elves and Ainur. Placed in the care of Lady Nerdanel, she grows close to the seven brothers, the sons of Fëanor, and with their half cousins, the sons and daughters of Fingolfin and Finarfin. Visit Alqualondë, visit Tirion, visit Valmar and the Two Trees, all during the Noontide of Valinor, in perfect bliss where only the death of Míriel has caused shadow. Love and laughter, friendship and wonder are her constant companion as she recovers from the event that stranded her in Arda.
BASED ON A REVERSAL OF DANTE'S DIVINE COMEDY - PARADISO
The first in a trilogy of Silmarillion fics called The Airequalmë (Divine Tragedy), A Different Kind of Heaven takes place prior to the detailed account in the book itself. Book two (A Different Kind of Purgatory) will pertain to the Unchaining of Melkor, and book three (A Different Kind of Hell) recounts her experience during the Flight of the Noldor.
Books One and Two and the beginning of Three utilize the Quenya names for the Eldar, before transitioning to mostly Sindarin during the latter half of Three. Name keys are provided.
