Disclaimer: Any recognizable characters and places are not mine. The original characters are mine, however, and the Valour Contest is my creation, don't try to find it in the books :-)
A/N 1: I have assumed that at the time when Estel is eight (i.e. about eight decades before the end of the Third Age), there have been elven children in Rivendell, Mirkwood, and Lothlórien. They are not mentioned anywhere, but I don't think there is a strong proof that there weren't any. If you disagree, you are free to consider this an AU element.
A/N 2: Two of my original characters might appear too 'mean' for elves. Please keep in mind that these are children, and they don't always realize the full extent of what they are doing. Well, I'm afraid you are going to hate those two by the end of the story :)
A/N 3: This story is a standalone, but if you wish you can think of it as a prequel to "Friendship is a Family Trait".
