B2MeM Prompt and Path:He Chanted a Song of Wizardry, Red
Format:Poetry
Genre:deathfic
Rating:PG
Warnings:death
Characters:Finrod
Pairings:None
Creator’s Notes:Tolkien provided the sandbox, I merely play with the bucket and shovel he left behind. No profit of any kind is made from my fanworks.

B2MeM Prompt: Full Moon (Purple)
Format: Poetry
Genre:Crossover
Rating: PG
Warnings: Silliness, but also sadness.
Characters: Tilion, Lena (Anne B. Walsh)
Pairings: Tilion/OC (unrequited)
Creator’s Notes (optional): Lena, who narrates this poem, is a character from “The Moon-Polishers”, a short piece written by my friend Anne B. Walsh and collected in her first “Week in Review”. (She's published many other things besides.) I’ve chosen to believe Lena is a Maia or other Ainu, likely of lesser power than Tilion. My poem is unrhymed and somewhat random, as my poems often are. I can rarely fit them to a deliberate structure (unless the structure itself is the prompt.)
Summary: My name is Lena, and my job is very important. I help to polish the Moon… Lena, one of the thousands of Tilion's helpers, reflects on her lord and especially the change in his transport (and her responsibilities) over the Ages. Set in our current Age.

I have only one more Canon Couple to go!

B2MeM Challenge: 2016 Memories; 2012 BINGO, "Canon Couples", O-68
Format: Poetry, Dribble
Genre: Romance
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Aegnor, Andreth
Pairings: Aegnor/Andreth
Creators' Notes (optional): I began some of these dribbles for the "Canon Couples" card in 2012, and decided to see how many more of them I could complete this year.
This one was difficult. I had to research them, because I only barely knew the bones of their story. It was in reading her conversation with Finrod, and seeing the rather bleak view of death and the fate of Men that she held even then, that I began to see my way with this. I still feel a bit shaky on First Age ground, and hope that I got it right.
Summary: Andreth mourns the Elf she had grown to love.

B2MeM Challenge: 2016 Memories; 2007 Alphabet – like an evil Elrond
Format: Poem – Pantoum
Genre: Um…character study, I think.
Rating: PG
Warnings: Mention of the attack of the Havens of Sirion, though nothing graphic.
Characters: Eärendil, Elwing, Elros, Elrond
Pairings: Eärendil/Elwing
Creators' Notes (optional): This pantoum is rather longer than usual, since it’s based off the ‘Song of Eärendil’. It may be found in Elrond’s Library – on a shelf so high no hobbit can reach it! (That’s what makes him evil. *nods* Hiding poetry from a poem-loving hobbit! Oh well, maybe Aragorn will be kind and fetch it for him? I had a terrible time thinking of a way to make Elrond evil, believe you me. :P )
Summary: Elrond, hearing the Song of Eärendil sung by Bilbo in the Hall of Fire, retired to his rooms afterward and took up his own pen. This is what came out.

"Eärendil was a mariner
that tarried in Arvernien;
he built a boat of timber felled
in Nimbrethil to journey in…”
