Creator’s Notes: This ficlet was written to go with the  lovely artwork created by Mithrial for this year's B2MeM: "Again Yavanna Sang and Nienna Wept" and to thank her for showing us so much beauty in that scene. (Legendarium Ladies April helped me to work out who the characters featured should be.)

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.
