    Summary

    Imagine how pissed off you would be if you somehow ended up in Middle Earth in time to help, but you didn’t speak Westron. Or Sindarin. Or Khuzdul. All you have are proper nouns, and some random phrases like Mellon, and Amralime, and, oh yeah, the inscription from the One ring. because that’s going to go over well when you start spouting off long forgotten verse in the black tongue of Mordor….
    So instead of eloquently explaining yourself and saving lives and falling in love with a character of your choice, you have to chase them around like a slightly more verbose Hodor, trying to learn a language and keep the dumb bastards alive.
    ------------------
    Well, it had to happen to someone eventually, and Pissed Off is definitely the way to describe it when it happens to her. But she still tries to do her duty to the fandom and keep the Durins alive just in case it isn't a nightmare after all.

    Summary

    Yara is a Syrian refugee, and well, life doesn't get much shittier than that, does it? Well, unless you're a Syrian refugee who suddenly finds herself in a place where no one understands what she's saying, there is no wi-fi... and how the hell did she even get there? Through all the gloom the stars are twinkling, just like the eyes of the people around her.

    A good fic if you like elves, language barriers, and OC's who break the mould. Not as depressing as the tags seem. Actually quite uplifting. Also, not a mary-sue, and not a tenth-walker, but the fellowship will come into play. Bear with me :)

    EDIT: So, I've noticed this is definitely going to end up being, well, long. It's turning out to be a story just as much about finding your place in the world as it is about finding adventure in Middle-Earth. I hope you enjoy it, anyway, and if you don't, feel free to leave constructive criticism :)

    I hope the language setup works for you. Please critique my Quenya and Sindarin. I have no clue about Swedish or Arabic, sooo... not even attempting those.

    Summary
