There's much ambiguity and debate about the fate of Cuiviénen and its location, as well as the location of the Orocarni, or Red Mountains. For the purposes of this story, I'm using the maps in Karen Wynn Fonstad's The Atlas of Middle-earth, which place the Orocarni and the Wild Wood east of the Sea of Rhûn, north and east of Mordor.

Many thanks to my betas: Nath, Inzilbeth, Estelcontar and Suzelle, without whose expertise and encouragement this story would have remained nothing more than a wild idea. Many thanks to the good Professor Tolkien for giving us such a lovely playground.
