B2MeM Prompt and Path: Red Path, "when he first stood near her and recognized her dimly through the shadows, like one who, at the beginning of the month, either sees or thinks he has seen the moon rise through clouds." ~Vergil, The Aenid
Format: Short story
Genre: Gapfiller, sort of?
Rating: General
Warnings: a Vanya doing something exciting? Also, I suppose there's a kind of male gaze thing going on, though not in the usual way.
Characters: Indis, Finwë, Fëanor
Pairings: Finwë/Míriel on the cusp of turning into Finwë/Indis
Creator’s Notes (optional): I took a turn left on the last Act of Kindness field of the green path I'd already completed, taking me onto the red. Not that I have any hopes of finishing that, but there's still some March left, right? Also fits this month's "Strength and Beauty" challenge.
Summary: Fëanor first sees Indis as she practices a traditional Vanyarin spear-dance. Fascination turns into life-long antipathy.

B2MeM Prompt and Path: Analyze a Chapter or Passage (orange path)
Format: essay
Genre: meta/nonfiction
Rating: General
Warnings: There is discussion of violence and character death, but nothing that exceeds what is in The Silmarillion itself.
Characters: Fëanor, Fingolfin, Pengolodh
Pairings: n/a
Summary: The death scenes of Fëanor and Fingolfin parallel each other closely in plot, beginning with the rash pursuit of single combat with Morgoth. Yet the manner in which the narrator of The Silmarillion, Pengolodh, employs language and symbolism leads to two very different conclusions that likely served to advance Pengolodh's political and personal agenda.

B2MeM Challenge: Daily Prompts (March 9)

Format: Fanart (watercolour)

Genre: Um. Pseudo-symbolic portraiture of questionable quality?

Rating: n/a

Warnings: Awfully bad proportions, blatant symbolism

Characters: Nerdanel, Fëanor

Pairings: Nerdanel/Fëanor

Creators' Notes (optional): The prompt was: Think of a person that you admire. The person can be someone from history, from fiction, or someone that you know--anyone! Write down three to five adjectives that describe why you find that person admirable. Now write the opposites of those three to five adjectives. Write or draw something from the point-of-view of a character who displays some or all of the "negative" adjectives on your second list.

I was actually asked in early March who my favourite Tolkien character was, and after a lot of vacillation I went for Nerdanel. So I picked her for the prompt, too. Applicable adjectives include "patient", "wise", "empathetic" and "open-minded" (also "creative", "skillful", "steadfast", "strong" etc., but I already had the concept of this picture in my mind so these wouldn't work with the "opposites" theme). The opposites would be something like "impatient", "rash", "judgemental" and "obstinate" (more or less! If it has to be all adjectives...), which fit Fëanor close enough. And of course I couldn't decide for just one of these two lovelies, so I drew them both (so it's from both of their POVs! Aren't I clever, haha) as polar opposites.
(Which they aren't really. But for the purpose of this prompt, it kinda works?)

Summary:

Nerdanel and Fëanor staring at each other whilst working on their respective projects, trying to figure out whether they love or hate each other.

B2MeM Challenge: “Inspired by this post, write an AU in which your characters have to run a spider farm.” -Zopyrus
Format: Short story (~4600 words)
Genre: AU, crack, drama (what a combination)
Rating: Teens
Warnings: Strong language, scatological incident, character death, lots of spiders, shameless contemporary AU. This also seems like the kind of thing I might get taken to task for not adding a beverage warning to.

Pairings: n/a
Creators' Notes (optional): I don’t even know. It’s been fun?

B2MeM Challenge: Multi-Age: Maglor in history. (This is the prompt that got me started thinking along these lines, but the story as finished doesn't really fit it at all.)
Multi-Age: Idioms & Translations. (There's a tiny bit of this one in there.)
General Prompts: Cultural Identification, connection with land, culture. (Bit of this one in there too.)
General Prompts: Walt Whitman's Song of Myself. (This one's probably the most to blame; I could mine this poem for stories for years!)
Format: Short story - 3800 words.
Genre: Crackfic, Experimental, Family, AU
Rating: PG-13 maybe (I'm really not sure how to rate this, but it probably shouldn't be read by kids.)
Warnings: Main character death, from a certain perspective.
Characters: Maglor, Feanor, Morgoth
Pairings: referenced Feanor/Nerdanel
Creators' Notes (optional): So I was thinking of various ways to send Maglor home, and this is the wildest idea I could come up with, so of course I had to write it.
Summary: Maglor has one chance to put everything right again, and he's going to take it.

B2MeM Challenge: Fëanor, Nerdanel, first meeting or first time. I am an absolute sucker for anything Feanor/Nerdanel. The story itself does not have to be a conventional romance. Doesn't even have to be het. Anything goes for me with these two. Foreshadow dark if you must, but I would just love some sweet early relationship something or another. (Prompt by Heartofoshun)

Format: short story (c.348 words)
Genre: romance
