Once Upon a Ring by Aaron Ledgers

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

"Dear Cinderella: if a dream is a wish your heart makes, and a dream that you wish will come true... does being dragged kicking and screaming through a one-way portal to another world, AGAINST my WILL, mean I have a genuinely fucked up heart?"

Meet Katie Sanders: an extremely antisocial teen with a bizarre talent.

In our world, everything is supposed to be normal: that is the way things have been since the beginning of our eighteenth century. However, every once in a while, having a gift that stands out is all right. Unless it's something strange, like predicting the future... and that is precisely why Katie is an outcast. Oh, but wait: there's more! On top of dealing with high school bullies, her brother's vicious attitude problem, and her foster mother's alcohol-induced rages, she's been having an ongoing streak of recurring nightmares for about three months now about a great, big, burning... EYE.

Well, that's all dandy and grand, but normal people shouldn't have to worry, right?

You'd think so, but sadly, Kate isn't normal.

Low and behold, just like every OTHER Cinderella story in existence, her dreams really DO come true... but NOT in a good way!

For as Long as It Takes by Oshun

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

A significant encounter between Nerdanel and Indis introduces a new chapter in their lives. Written for silmladylove’s second annual 2015 Tolkien Femslash Week on Tumblr. The romance herein is not explicit, but foreshadowed. I do have an untold story of these two women rattling around in my head that I will continue. I had hopes when I wrote my story "A Kindred Heart " that the astute reader would guess it could contain the seeds of something like this.

Many thanks to Elleth and also to Everyonelovesaloser for Beta reading this ficlet for me.
