A Cautionary Tale by pandemonium_213

Rated PG
[Reviews - 4]
Table of Contents

Meriadoc Brandybuck has taken a winter's reprieve from the tasks of the Master of Brandy Hall to come to Rivendell so that he might study for his next project  — The Tale of Years.  He brings his wife, Estella, their son, daughters, and their Took cousin with him.  It is shortly before Yule during the waning days of the Year 1454 by Shire Reckoning (Fourth Age, 32). The young hobbits quickly have become thick with the sons and daughters of the Istyanis and Glorfindel and cause something of a ruckus during an evening supper, aided and abetted by Old Winyards. Glorfindel invites the hobbits to join him and his family for an after-dinner brandy, and there in his family quarters, he spins a tale from his boyhood in Aman — a cautionary tale of purloined black powder and faulty fuses. 

Warning:  Pandë!verse-centric.  PG for consumption of copious amounts of wine, apple brandy, and mildly inebriated Elves and Hobbits. Also warning for un-beta'ed state.  Nits abound, and thus, the fic is subject to tweaking.

A Horse is a Horse of Course by Dreamflower

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Boromir recalls part of his journey north to Imladris to Merry and Pippin as they float down the Anduin.
`I have myself been at whiles in Rohan, but I have never crossed it northwards. When I was sent out as a messenger, I passed through the Gap by the skirts of the White Mountains, and crossed the Isen and the Greyflood into Northerland. A long and wearisome journey. Four hundred leagues I reckoned it, and it took me many months; for I lost my horse at Tharbad, at the fording of the Greyflood. After that journey, and the road I have trodden with this Company, I do not much doubt that I shall find a way through Rohan, and Fangorn too, if need be.' (FotR, Book II, Chapter VIII "Farewell to Lórien") . My thanks to Shirebound for finding this quote for me!

Things They Didn't Tell You in the Red Book by Huinare

Rated R
[Reviews - 2]
Table of Contents

I'm starting this anthology because some of my B2MeM 2012 prompts produced things of an interesting nature, and I don't imagine this will be the last time this kind of thing happens.

Rating reflects the most intense of the stories, but many are much more mild.  Individual story warnings will come with each chapter.

Most of these are simply obscure viewpoints, but some will be crossover/AU type things.
