Elena Tiriel's favorite drabbles (vignettes of precisely 100 words), drabble multiples, or drabble series from Tolkien fanfic; a very personal and eclectic list of drabbles at HASA that have touched me in some way. See Inspiring Stories for a list of favorite stories of other types.

Why This Story?

See Olórin I was in my Youth in the West that is Forgotten; a perfect gem of a drabble with hauntingly beautiful language.
