I noticed I've missed a couple chapters. Glad I got caught up again. i do so love this AU story. You've got the voices down. I can just 'hear' Merry and 'see' Gandalf.

I don't either, and I'm still going to write something Who, me? But let's not further hijack the birthday thread...

Hi Aruthir,

Yes, if there is adult content in any part of the story, the entire story must be labeled that way. However, you can indicate in the introduction and at the start of the chapter in question where the mature content resides. Please also remember that adult =/= sex. It means any topic or presentation that would not be suitable for a minor to read.

Hope this helps,

If one chapter in ten ends up what you might call... "adult"... is the whole story rated such? I'm just a little curious as my latest tale is proving shall we say a little... messy?

Ahhh, Nath- I wish I could believe you... but lists only ever work when they're funny.

Unless you can write brilliantly.

And I cannot write brilliantly.

Trust me.

Politics of Arda
Updated: 02 Mar 14 - 10 stories
Owner: AngelQueen

Last Fruit, The
How the Noldor who remained behind in Valinor were left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives after the Host left, particularly Finarfin and Earwen.
A brilliant 'changing of the guard' moment in Doriath.
Portrait Of A Queen
Tar-Telperien, the second Ruling Queen of Númenor, refused to marry despite all attempts to convince her otherwise. Here's a reason why.
Wisdom of Isildur, The
An excellent look as to why there were no further Elven High Kings after into Mordor fell Gil-Galad's star.
Cursed Queen of Angmar, The
A thoroughly amazing epic showing the behind the scenes life of Angmar during the Third Age. An excellent use of an OFC too.
Rangers of the North
An outstanding look at the tangled web of the Third Age's politics - why Gondor rejected Isildur's heirs for a millennium, the loyalties of the Stewards, the fate of the Isildurioni in the North, Elrond's views, etc. Morwen Tindomerel's legendarium is perhaps my favorite AU of all. Brilliant.
Midwinter Forfeit
The politics of Gondor are dicey ones, and this is a great interpretation of what are Thorongil's final days in that country before other tasks call him.
When the King Comes Back (the Great Smials)
Just what effect did the Hobbits' disappearance from the Shire have? A rather big one, it turns out, on more than one level. This is but one in a series of Dreamflower's stories. If you like this one, I recommend going over to Stories of Arda, where the rest are archived.
Long Road Home, The
Boromir survives the disaster at Amon Hen and goes on the run, doing good deeds wherever he may and leaving only Faramir to know the truth. But secrets will out eventually, and the consequences will have to be addressed.
Eloquent Remembrance
The meeting of two Elves, both giants in their own right, to discuss the politics that lie between them.
