First off, yes... I did create an original race, but only to a certain extent... even Tolkien implied the existence of fairies. I just had some fun with the idea.
Second, this idea is a bit on the rough side and I am totally down with perfecting it once I find a partner :)
To the left is floating an example image I made for Princess Celebrinel
Here is what I have right now:
Long after the events of the defeat of Sauron, in a time of golden peace for Middle Earth, something amazing is about to happen.
An ancient race forgotten by Middle Earth has chosen this time of peace to return to Middle Earth after their many, many centuries of absence. Where were they all this time? The answer is among the clouds...
Legends speak of a race baring wings of shimmering pale gossamer, hair of snow white with a silvery shine to the strands... and the most breathtaking description of all is the rumor of their bodies baring a soft silvery light blue glow like the moon and stars.
Fairest of all fair creatures, these ethereal beings said to have descended from the silver beams of the moon, are known as Moon Fairies or Children of the Moon.
As it happens, the moon fairies speak the same language of the Sindarin elves, making it possible that at one time very long ago, these fairies may have lived alongside the Sindarin elves.
The king of the Moon Fairies, Ithilrin, has sent his royal children with gifts down to Middle Earth to visit each existing kingdom to spread the word of their coming and extend to each race their good will and friendship.
Princess Celebrinel has just arrived in Mirkwood (I forget the new name) and she is about to find that her life is about to truly begin...
Those I'd be willing to pair Celebrinel with are: Legolas, Thranduil or Haldir
