Interesting story - very sensual, and a nice OC.

Femslash is rare in Tolkien fandom, it seems, but some of the most successful uses OFCs, like this fic does, so as to hit upon a plausible setting. Finduilas' youth, her trust and affection for her friend, and curiosity combine to make a little exploration seem not unlikely. Intimate and a lot more peaceful than many slashfics featuring male characters, this has a qualitatively different feel from many slash stories.
