Tolkien quote of the day:

But the land of Aman and Eressëa of the Eldar were taken away and removed beyond the reach of Men for ever. And Andor, the Land of Gift, Númenor of the Kings, Elenna of the Star of Eärendil, was utterly destroyed. For it was nigh to the east of the great rift, and its foundations were overturned, and it fell and went down into darkness, and is no more. And there is not now upon Earth any place abiding where the memory of a time without evil is preserved. For Ilúvatar cast back the Great Seas west of Middle-earth, and the Empty Lands east of it, and new lands and new seas were made; and the world was diminished, for Valinor and Eressëa were taken from it into the realm of hidden things.

Akallabeth, The Silmarillion

bullet The Owl Screamed by Linda Hoyland Last Updated: 6/11/2024
A night at an inn leads to an Unsettling Encounter.

bullet Destiny's Child by Mirkwoodmaiden Last Updated: 5/30/2024
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.

bullet Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Lindelea Last Updated: 5/2/2024
While in Minas Tirith after the end of the War of the Ring, surely the hobbits were showered with presents from a grateful populace, or at least the people tried to shower them with presents. This is the story of one awkward but lovable gift, and a unique solution to the problem. New chapter added: In the Houses of Healing

bullet The Tenth Walker by Lindelea Last Updated: 4/16/2024
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: Beginning the descent.

bullet Relapse by Periantari Last Updated: 4/15/2024
What if Faramir used being busy as an excuse and cover to how he really felt during and after the time of coronation? What if PTSD weighs down on him far more than he cared to admit and others failed to notice? A story to give him some comfort from the Fellowship, Imrahil and of course Éowyn. Appearances also from Galadriel, Arwen, Legolas, Gimli, Eomer and OFC.

bullet Faramir's Verse by losselen Last Updated: 2/27/2024

bullet Import Duty by DADGAD Last Updated: 2/8/2024
Aragorn makes a rash promise in Council, that he himself would always obey any duly constituted laws of Gondor and Arnor, just like he requires his subjects to do. Faramir is concerned about the possible problems this might cause, especially as there are many laws and regulations going back through the years of the Stewards. A few weeks later Aragorn is asked to account for the provenance of a 'special' item which he has apparently imported into Gondor...
