    Did she remember Elwë from his visit to Valinor and seek him out on the march?

    Was she performing some task for Yavanna?

    I’m just wondering if there is any official reason for her being in Nan Elmoth at the time she and Elwë fell in love...

    The tale tells that in the time when the Quendi awoke Melian went to Middle-earth and there filled the silence of Middle-earth before the dawn with her voice and the voices of her birds.

    That's what she was doing anyway :)

    Can't recall at the moment if there's more!
