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.

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 and Path: The Darkening of Valinor. Purple path.
Format: Triple Drabble/Poetry
Genre: Gapfiller
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Sauron; Morgoth
Pairings: Ambiguous (it's just barely Sauron/Morgoth)
Creator’s Notes (optional):I wanted to take this prompt in a different direction - outside of Valinor, if I could. This is the result. It's written in the same prose-poetry style as my longer fic about Sauron, The Blacksmith.
Summary: While Valinor was plunged into Darkness, Darkness was already waiting in the East.

B2MeM Prompt and Path:“It was the possibility of darkness that made the day seem so bright.” (Stephen King) (green path)
Format: Ficlet
Genre: Gen, Gapfiller
Rating: PG
Warnings: N/A
Characters: OC (Annuil)
Pairings: N/A
Creator’s Notes: Some readers of my story The Meaning of Snow asked what had happened to the OC Annuil afterwards. This is a short sequel answering that question. It isn’t necessary to have read the story to understand this, all you need to know is Annuil is a warrior from the Greenwood who had been caught in a rockslide while travelling over the Misty Mountains to Rivendell. Many thanks to Lordhellebore for the beta. All remaining mistakes are my own.
