Era: 3rd Age - Ring War   Genre: General  Completion: Complete
The scenes leading up to the Council of Elrond have a lot of unanswered questions. Why didn't Elrond know where Aragorn was during Frodo's feast, or that his sons had returned? Who arranged that very odd head table seating and why? Where was Boromir that he could show up "in the grey morning" just in time? And why did Aragorn bring Narsil to the Council meeting anyway? With many thanks to my long suffering beta readers - Marta, Arandil, RiverOtter and Patti, and to Tanaqui as well. For St...

Lissa asked me to write a followup to Fell Memories for her birthday "drabble" - she gets a series of 12 to mirror the other story. The story so far: Aragorn, on his way out of Gondor after the Corsair raid, was captured by Nazgul and casually tortured as he was being brought to Dol Guldur. He did not reveal who he was, even though hard pressed. He escaped in a way that, I hope, was reasonable and not superhuman. He swam Anduin to get away and ended up on the borders of Lorien asking for hel...

A Corsair raid must have been a very frightening experience for the villages along the coast. It surely was reassuring to know that their sea-savvy Prince could be counted on to help them. A drabble series featuring a 'piratey Imrahil'. A birthday present for EdorasLass. Many thanks to Tanaqui and Maurita for the beta, and a passing nod to Kipling for some inspiration.

Aragorn probably returned home to Rivendell at least once between leaving at age twenty and heading home from Gondor when he was forty-nine. What did Arwen see when she looked at him then? I think he was a sweet-talking devil she could never quite pigeonhole. For obsidianj who wanted a drabble about Aragorn as Strider or Thorongil and got me thinking about names. It's a bit longer than a drabble. And thank you to Rivergirl for the beta. MEFA 2007 - Second Place in Genres: Romance: Pre-Ring ...

Though Aragorn left Gondor in the triumph of the Corsair defeat saying he planned to spend his time working against the enemy, he arrived at Lothlorien less than three months later 'on his way to Rivendell' and 'weary'. Would such a short time in the Wild 'weary' the intrepid Ranger, or did something much more drastic occur during the 'perils on the dark confines of Mordor"? Rated adult for violence. A series of twelve drabbles. With many thanks to my beta readers Oshun, Pen 52 and Súlriel....

Written for the March 2007 Challenge. These are also available as chapters in the separate stories for each prompt, but I wanted mine collected together. Not every prompt currently has a drabble, but I do intend to finish them all as inspiration strikes. I recommend looking at the rest of the stories in the Challenge here I have completed twenty-three of the thirty-one prompts as of 9/13/07. They are the ones with actual titles and characters listed below. Many thanks to my betas: Adaneth,...

A member of my beta group proposed a "Twleve Days of Tolkien" Challenge, complete with a song to give the prompts. I never could resist that kind of challenge. Some of these are silly, some are serious. Some follow the prompt closely. Some give it a very unusual slant. Thanks to Willow for proposing it! My drabble muse needed a kick start.

Deciding to be mortal did not automatically make death achievable for Arwen. Why did she linger when Aragorn lay down his life? With many, many thanks to Sulriel, Gandalf's Apprentice, Oshun, Pen52 and LadyA for beta duties above and beyond, and a nod to Kipling for some of the imagery.

My birthday is June 2. I'm still predictable. I like Aragorn; a political Aragorn. Show him coping with diplomatic difficulties in the North or South, early or late in his life, traveling the deserts or in Rivendell or Gondor. If politics is not your thing, I am always in the mood for a nice romantic Aragorn. (no slash, please)

Poor Pippin. Here is is traumatized from being exposed to the Eye of Sauron. Everyone thinks he's been really stupid *again* and no one gives him any sympathy for being tortured by Sauron... except Legolas. Pippin really didn't do so badly, when you get right down to it. Sequel to "To Labour and to Wait".
