Feature TAWARWAITH TALES by Lissas Elves

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 6]
Table of Contents

 

Long ago, the Eldar left their home by the Lake and set out on a long journey towards the Blessed Realm. So long ago was it that a child of the Third Clan, born long after the Journey began, had time to grow to his full stature and even gain some renown during the time his people wandered westwards. 

So why did his people abandon the journey when they reached the Vale of Anduin? Was it really for fear of the towering mountains, as the Noldorin chroniclers tell us? 

Or were there perhaps other reasons why they stayed when others left? 

 

Written for the LoTR GenFic Big Bang Challenge 2011 - illustrated by Lady Elleth.

Feature Vairë Was a Weaver, or, Real Men Wear Corsets (a farce) by Celeritas

Rated PG
[Reviews - 28]
Table of Contents

Arwen gets bored one day and sets in motion a chain of events that no one except the Author can entirely predict.  Diaphragms are squeezed, things catch on fire, and the whole City seems to go mad for a day, and yet somehow everything seems to end up slightly better off than it started.

Crackfic, inspired in part by Shakespearean farces, Terry Pratchett, and high school spirit weeks.
