Who was the only Sinda to have seen the Two Trees Question Smilie
Might that be my step-father, Thingol? I believe his brother called him "Elwe" a very long time ago.

My step-father used to tell me stories about an ancient time when he lived by a great lake with his people. He was a simple elf back then, but he used to have dreams about a wonderous light, though he always awoke under the stars. Then, one day a mighty hunter came to his people and beckoned them with descriptions reminiscent of his dreams, and he knew that it was his destiny to follow. However, the journey was long, and there was much to distract the elves. So, when he returned to bring his brethren to behold the unimaginable magnificence of the trees, he instead beheld a different beauty, his future wife. He forsook the trees and remained with his wife as far as I know. I have unfortunately lost contact with all of my family.
