Rated PG
[Reviews - 1]
Printer Friendly: Printer

Drabble sequence written for a sequence of bird prompts at Tolkien Weekly on LiveJournal: various kinds of cross-overs between the Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings and/or The Hobbit.
The birds get their own say in some, but not all of the drabbles.

1) Swan: Galadriel & Celeborn; 2) Thrush: Celegorm, Caranthir, Bard; 3) Raven: Caranthir, Dain; 4) Nightingale: Arwen, Daeron; 5) Eagle: Landroval, Meneldor


Story Notes:

Ratings: content: PG but some of the implications probably PG13.
