Five Istari, shortly after their arrival in Ennor, traveling together as they adjust to limited powers and mortal forms. A B2MEM 2012 project.
I am flattered to have recieved a Tree and Flower award nomination for this tale, and only wish that I were keeping it updated in a timely manner. Evidently the manic burst of energy I had for it during the first three weeks of B2MeM could not last.
On the plus side, I've come up with more interesting chapter titles, some of which are possibly injokes with myself. A few of the titles were used when posting chapters as one-off stories in the B2MeM LJ community in March.
