B2MEM Prompt: For the Purple Path “Things that go bump in the night” – at least, very loosely.
Format: ficlet
Genre: family, friendship
Rating: PG
Warnings: mentions of death, nothing graphic
Characters: Eomer, Periadoc Brandybuck, mentions of Theoden, Eowyn, Elfwine, Lothiriel, Pippin, Merry and Estella
A/N: For Shirebound, for wee hobbits everywhere, and for Dreamflower 😊 (also posted to wee_hobbits community) Fourteen-year-old Perry is the equivalent of 8 1/2 years old in Man-years. (I follow Dreamflower's lead on hobbit ages.)
A/N the Second (edited): I didn't consider Perry an OC, since Dreamflower had said Tolkien wrote Merry's son's name in a letter to her friend (my apologies for misremembering, I looked up the reference again). But Dreamflower herself has called Periadoc an "OMC" on at least one occasion, so I will amend my tag to reflect that.
Summary: The Son of the Hall keeps a firm watch over the Hall’s most recent guests from the South, on the banks of the Brandywine – and has a somewhat sobering conversation with his king.

Prompt and Path: “On silver necklaces they strung The flowering stars, On crowns they hung The dragon-fire, in twisted wire They meshed the light of moon and sun.” JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit. Purple path.
Format: Ficlet
Genre: Gen/Gapfiller
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mentions of canon-typical violence
Characters: Dwarves; Thingol; Oropher; Thranduil; Doriathrim; OC; Mablung
Pairings: None
Creator’s Notes (optional): This is something of a footnote in my fic series 'The Elvenking’, and the half in non-italics will make its way into a future chapter of this story. You don't need to read it (I would love if you did!), but all you need to know is that in that story’s chronology, Thranduil was born in Doriath, spent his early years as a marchwarden and soldier, and is about 200 years old at the time of the Sack of Menegroth.
Summary: The Silmaril is set in the Nauglamir, and nothing good comes of it on either side of the ensuing conflict.

B2MeM Prompt: “On silver necklaces they strung The flowering stars, On crowns they hung The dragon-fire, in twisted wire They meshed the light of moon and sun.” JRR Tolkien, The Hobbit (Purple)
Format: short story (chapter? I suppose it's really part of the same story as "Itarilde and 'Tani: Princesses Reunited" though it could stand alone)
Genre: gen, family
Rating: PG
Warnings:
Characters: Galadriel, Idril, Elwing, Nimloth, OCs
Pairings: Earendil/Elwing, Dior/Nimloth, Tuor/Idril, Celeborn/Galadriel (all mentioned or alluded to, none central)
Creator’s Notes (optional): Any characters you don't recognise are my Atto Fiondil's OCs. (Faniel Finwiel is questionably canon; her marriage to Olwe's son isn't canon so far as I know)
Summary: Some time after Idril greeted Galadriel at the quay (see "Itarilde and Tani"), they, Elwing, and Nimloth get together for a good catch-up. They don't intend to run into Galadriel's uncles (and aunt) at the tavern...Lindar s the term the Teleri use for themselves.

Faithful

Mar. 24th, 2017 01:57 pm
[identity profile] fernstrike.livejournal.com
Prompt and Path: Tyranny. Purple path.
Format: Short story.
Genre: Tragedy/Drama
Rating: Teen and up (see warnings)
Warnings: Moderate violence; Character death (it's Númenor under Sauron...so death by sacrifice, essentially).
Characters: Original characters; Isildur; Amandil; Elendil; Sauron.
Pairings: None.
Creator’s Notes (optional): It's taken me so long to get this done (ah, real life, always getting in the way), especially as it grew far beyond what I'd originally intended, and now stands at nearly 5000 words! I tried to incorporate lots of elements of the lore and legendarium, and it's my first time writing anything Second Age, so I hope everything turned out well enough. I created a lot of OCs for this - I might like to explore them more in future, as well as the Akallabêth in general.
Summary: The tenuous relationship between the King and the Elendili is coming to its breaking point. When Isildur steals the fruit of Nimloth, what follows brings the already-heavy boot of tyranny down harder upon the Faithful - especially the gifted healer, Nilûphel.
This fic is also available on AO3!
