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 Prompt and Path: primary colors (blue path: artwork)
Format: digital art, sketch with written copy
Genre: AU
Rating: Gen
Warnings: no warnings apply
Characters: Maglor, Fingolfin
Pairings: none so far
Creator’s Notes (optional): Chapter 3 – The Colors of Our World - Powerful High King Fingolfin receives word that their unified kingdoms are once again under attack. Will saving the Noldor from the fierce onslaught of Morgoth prove more daunting even than bringing together its restive elements?
Summary:
These blurbs are written by a reader who is on the mailing lists of far too many publishing companies. Why not use some of the dozens of prompts of yet another annual B2MeM to design covers or ads, write ad copy, review, or draft summaries of books I would not be likely to write?

Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Discussion of suicidal depression
Characters: Fingon, Gil-galad, Fingolfin
Pairings: referenced Fingon/Maedhros
Creators' Notes (optional): This story follows up on 'From The Wrack And Ruin', and therefore forms part of my Ninnachel series, though Ninnachel does not feature (as this story takes place before their life intersects with Fingon's in any way).

Warnings: Character death (OC), mildly graphic sex and violence
Characters: Fingon, Gil-galad, Fingolfin, Maedhros
Pairings: Fingon/Maedhros
Creators' Notes: This story forms part of my Ninnachel series in a tangential way, but it is not necessary to have read any of those stories to read this one. This is the backstory for Gil-galad and the 'tale' that Fingon refers to in 'Reprimand And Redress'.
Summary: Fingon falls head over heels in love for the second time in his life.

B2MeM Challenge: General Prompts: "Write a story...reflecting identification with or connection to one’s land, country or culture." This is possibly a somewhat different sort of connection to the land than envisioned! But it does have a little subtle reference to the poem quoted in the prompt.

Warnings: Fairly graphic sex
Characters: Maedhros, Fingon, Maglor, Fingolfin
Pairings: Fingon/Maedhros, Maglor/Tasteless Jokes, Maglor/Sarcastic Poetry, Fingolfin/Planning
