Canon doesn't mention what role Lúthien played in these events, if any, but I wanted to build some characterisation for her and Thingol, and this seemed appropriate.
I didn't actually realise there's a potential pun about (under)wire here until after I chose the title. :)
Part 214: Down to the wire
Next time: Part 215: Melian's support
