A lengthened vignette based on a movieverse scene from the extended edition of FOTR. An angry argument, bitter words spoken, and suddenly a man finds himself struggling with his conscience. Written from a different POV than "Alone and Forsaken". Mixture of movie and bookverse

Feature An Evening with Friends by nautika

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

This has references to Chapter 8, The Fellowship of the Ring, but should be considered AU. I started a series of friendship fics called "Fireside Chats", the Fellowship (and maybe some friends) sitting by a fire, exchanging stories and getting to know each other and their cultures better.

Obviously, they wont be in order, as this takes place in Minas Tirith after the Ring is destroyed. I'm toying with the idea of doing one per person. If I continue with that concept, then this will be considered 'Faramir's story.'

Feature Dogs of the Golden Hall by nautika

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Part of my self-challenge month when I tried to write a story a day, and dabble in different styles than usual for me. This is obviously AU, as dogs don’t speak Common, and dogs in Rohan were (in my mind) more public than private property.
