City of Aiedail [NC-H]

Elves are born about one year from their conception. The day of their conception is celebrated, not the actual birthday itself. Their minds develop more quickly than their bodies; by their first year, they can speak, walk and even dance, and their quicker onset of mental maturity makes young Elves seem, to Men, older than they really are. 

Physical puberty comes in around their fiftieth to one hundredth year (by age fifty they reach their adult height): teenagers, and by their first hundred years of life outside the womb, all Elves are fully-grown: adults. Elven bodies eventually stop aging physically, while human bodies do not.

Elves marry freely and for love early in life. Monogamy is practiced and adultery is unthinkable; they only marry once. Spouses can choose each other even long before they are married, thus becoming betrothed. The betrothal is subject to parental approval unless the parties are of age and intend to marry soon, at which point the betrothal is announced. They exchange rings and the betrothal lasts at least a year, and is revocable by the return of the rings; however, it is rarely broken.
Only the words exchanged by the bride and groom (including the speaking of the name of Eru Ilúvatar) and the consummation are required for marriage. More formally, the couple's families celebrate the marriage with a feast. The parties give back their betrothal rings and receive others worn on their index fingers. The bride’s mother gives the groom a jewel to wear

The Elves view the sexual act as extremely special and intimate, for it leads to the conception and birth of children. Extra-marital and premarital sex is unthinkable, adultery is also unheard of, and fidelity between spouses is absolute. Living Elves cannot be raped or forced to have sex; before that, they will lose the will to endure and go to Mandos
Elves have few children, as a rule and preoccupy themselves with various things such as smith work, sculpture, music and other arts, and of course, what to eat. Males and females can do almost everything equally; however, the females often specialize in the arts of healing while the men go to war. This is because they believe that taking life interferes with the ability to preserve life. However, Elves are not stuck in rigid roles; females can defend themselves at need as well as males, and many males are skilled healers as well
Eventually, if they do not die in battle or from some other cause, the Elves of Middle-earth grow weary of it and desire to go to Valinor, where the Valar originally sheltered their kind. Those who wish to leave for the Undying Lands often go by boats provided at the Grey Havens

Elves are naturally immortal, and remain unwearied with age. In addition to their immortality, Elves can recover from wounds, which would normally kill a mortal Man. However, Elves can be slain, or die of grief and weariness. Spirits of dead Elves go to the Halls of Mandos in Valinor. After a certain period of time and rest that serves as "cleansing,” their spirits are clothed in bodies identical to their old ones. However, they almost never go back to Middle-earth and remain in Valinor instead. It is rare and more unusual that an Elf come back from the Halls of Mandos but it could happen.
Eventually, their immortal spirits will overwhelm and consume their bodies, rendering them "bodiless,” whether they opt to go to Valinor or remain in Middle-earth. At the end of the world, all Elves will have become invisible to mortal eyes, except to those to whom they wish to manifest themselves. Lingeres. The lives of Elves only endure as the world endures.

City of Aiedail

A city with such a romantic name most has been world class to couples hoping to experience the everlasting love but to their despair, it was a hidden hole of decadent and adulterous symbols. Hiding behind the perfect rich, modern and worldly mask, they experience.
Their daily pain and suffering doesn’t go unheard .the elfish council decided it was time to step in and help because it was their nature to help others, even after they decided to hide  for many years after the human didn’t need them any more.

Thrown in a very modern world with all the commodities they have never experiences, as they will constantly be tested by the human’s emotions and selfish acts. Confronted by lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy, and pride.
Six elves where chosen in different stages of their life, two where not anymore in their teens ,yet not matured enough to consider a young adult, the other two reached their adult but where still to consider it their final stage to young . The last two had reached their maturity and was not aging any more, their youthful appearance would be considered in modern world as plastic surgery to their neighbors. Six different personalities and attitudes.
Together they will have to put forward the difficult task that was helping their neighbors. With as little, magic as possible
