Tolkien quote of the day:

Gandalf really ‘died’ and was changed: for that seems to me the only real cheating, to represent anything that can be called ‘death’ as making no difference. ‘I am Gandalf the White, who has returned from death’. Probably he should rather have said to Wormtongue: ‘I have not passed through death (not fire and flood) to bandy crooked words with a serving-man’. And so on. I might say much more, but it would only be in (perhaps tedious) elucidation of the ‘mythological’ ideas in my mind; it would not, I fear, get rid of the fact that the return of Gandalf is as presented in this book a ‘defect’, and one that I was aware of, and probably did not work hard enough to mend. But Gandalf is not, of course, a human being (Man or Hobbit).

bullet The Bones of What You Believe by Suzelle Last Updated: 12/17/2018
She pictured Rivendell to the north, where her grandson lay safe. Happy, she hoped, unaware of his birthright and all that would come with it. Seventeen, now—still a child. Too young to weigh lives, and find their loss worth the alternative. Hurry up and grow, Aragorn, my Estel. Come home so that I may rest for awhile.

bullet The Tenth Walker by Lindelea Last Updated: 10/22/2018
Probably been done before, and perhaps better, but Bill the Pony gave my elbow a nudge this morning, causing me to spill my tea, and he licked up all the sugar from the bowl, and is likely to make a complete nuisance of himself if I don't write down his story. Hollin: Change in plans

bullet Wingfoot by quodamat Last Updated: 10/8/2018
Six cousins, two kings, a mysterious creature, and imaginations running rampant...what could go wrong? A slightly silly story in which Éomer unwittingly inspires a revisionist romp through First Age lore, Elboron seeks answers in a book from a Took, and a Ranger is caught off his guard.

bullet If You Wish Upon a Dwobbit by Soledad Last Updated: 9/30/2018
As mentioned in “The Book of Mazarbul”, Bifur and Óin had always been close. So, why did they never court? Possibly because Bifur’s interest was elsewhere? Don’t let the title mislead you. This is a non-slash, one hundred per cent canon, bookverse story. Well, 99 per cent canon anyway, seeing that Bifur is a bit different here. *g* Features Thorin's entire company - and more.
