The women of Erendis’s household tell each other stories on a rainy day. (Or, a tale from New England retold in Númenor.)
Written for Back to Middle-earth Month 2012, for the Crossover I card, crossover “. . . with a story from your country” (N38). This story is loosely based on the poem “The Phantom Ship” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, who states that he derived it from an incident recounted by Cotton Mather.
I don't think this quite needs a formal character death warning, but there is referenced original character death in the tale-within-a-tale.
