Feature Forging for Protection and Defense by Larner

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

He studied in Tirion in the forges of Mahtan and Lord Aule himself, but followed his chosen lord to Middle Earth to find his destiny.  Perhaps his most memorable achievements were the forging of a particular suit of armor, and his advice, supervision, and participation in the reforging of a famous blade created by a greater smith than he was himself.  Was it worthwhile?  Can he ever look to accept forgiveness for his part in the rebellion of the Noldor?

Inspired by the armor worn by Elendil and Aragorn in the PJ LOTR movies.  Beta by Fiondil and Soledad, with my profound thanks.

Lalme, Alalme by Himring

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

The destruction of Beleriand after the War of Wrath--and a very unusual refugee.

Originally written for the Season of Change challenge at the Silmarillion Writers Guild Archive. It struck me that there was one piece of writing that perfectly fitted this challenge already--and it had been written by Tolkien himself, but was not in the Silmarillion. I mean Treebeard's song in Two Towers, of course. This story is partly a re-write or remix of that song, in prose and from a rather different vantage point. The Ent in this story is Treebeard (or Fangorn) himself, but he didn't think about himself as Treebeard at the time.

The story was originally dedicated to Dawn's (and "Eli"'s) Create for Life project (12-14 November 2010).

Warning for extreme violence to trees, exerted by natural forces.

The story was nominated for the MEFAs 2011 by Dwimordene, for which much thanks. It won Second Place in the category "Other Beings: General" and also a  Smaug's Treasure award.

Thank you very much to those who voted for Treebeard in this piece as their favourite characterization of a minor canon character in the Tree and Flower Awards!
