I think I've got it . . . we'll see though, won't we?

Man and woman share the root word 'man'.

Man____

Love and lust inside perilous beauty both seem to share one thing in common at least - devotion. The Numenorean word for devotion is Wendil. Therefore, I'd say the answer to the CC is;

Manwendil: The second son of Elros, first of kings, brother of Elrond, and all-around good guy.

Wow, ever the actions must be atoned for. I answered it and it was fun . . . but now I guess I have to think something up.

Prayer for evil,
looking . . . staring down,
a persistent buzzing in mourning ears . . .
the lands were filled with dark rumor.

I hope it's not too bad. . .

Nah, not Sauron. But definitely something on the dark side of things. Maybe a category style hint should have been given, so I'll give one just because I feel like it;

It's an Event, not a Character, Place, Thing.

This is sort of cryptic clueish, like the question I answered, but it's definitely a riddle.

A more personal event, more 'intimate' as a director would put it.

is 'prayer for evil' the cryptic one?

Is it Hurin''s being bound on Thangorodrim and being made to watch all that happened to his family?

Prayer for evil is most certainly the cryptic part . . .

Here's a hint; give some thought to 'mourning ears'.

White-Hand A wild guess, but it's probably a boomer out of the barn...

^translation: A nuclear missile submarine from its port.

Ahem.

Right. Is it the departure of Amandil for Valinor, attempting to be the second Earendil?

Prayer for evil reminds me of Sauron's human sacrifices "to" Melkor. But it's probably wrong. So you may lief ignore this post.

Long time . . . no replies. It won't hurt to say that the riddle comes from some of the most entrancing, engrossing, captivating, utterly hypnotizing portions of the Silmarillion.

Could it be the Slaying of Thingol in Menegroth by the Dwarves?
