Tolkien quote of the day:

Also to be Prince of Ithilien, the greatest noble after Dol Amroth in the revived Numenorean state of Gondor, soon to be of imperial power and prestige, was not a 'market-garden job' as you term it. Until much had been done by the restored king, the P. of Ithilien would be the resident march-warden of Gondor, in its main eastward outpost - and also would have many duties in rehabilitating the lost territory, and clearing it of outlaws and orc-remnants, not to speak of the dreadful vale of Minas Ithil (Morgul). I did not, naturally, go into details about the way in which Aragorn, as King of Gondor, would govern the realm. But it was made clear that there was much fighting and in the earlier years of A.'s reign expeditions against enemies in the East. The chief commanders, under the King, would be Faramir and Imrahil; and one of these would normally remain a military commander at home in the King's absence.

bullet Untold Tales of the Mark - The Rewrite by Katzilla Last Updated: 12/2/2021
This is a partly new take on my 80-chapter-epic "Untold Tales of the Mark: The Banishment of Éomer", which was posted here over a decade ago. After having completed its prequel, "A Red Sun rises", last year, I found that I had grown attached to some of Éomer's riders and decided to give them a more active part in the action. So here we go again...buckle up!

bullet The Tenth Walker by Lindelea Last Updated: 11/29/2021
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. Chapters are about as long as a pony's attention span. New: Kindling fire on Caradhras. Or not, as it were. Legolas takes a hand.

bullet Upon Amon Sûl by PSW Last Updated: 10/17/2021
"They will come on you in the wild, in some dark place where there is no help. Do you wish them to find you? They are terrible!" ... For a while he sat with unseeing eyes as if walking in distant memory or listening to sounds in the Night far away. "There!" he cried after a moment, drawing his hand across his brow. "Perhaps I know more about these pursuers than you do." (The Fellowship of the Ring, 'Strider')

bullet Destiny's Child by Mirkwoodmaiden Last Updated: 10/5/2021
Éowyn is an endlessly fascinating character to me. This is her story, to my mind. This story will eventually merge with my story of Faramir, "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they meet. It is her story in that story arc. The first chapter was inspired by Lindelea asking about how Éowyn became a Shieldmaiden.
