Tolkien quote of the day:

'Eldest, that's what I am. Mark my words, my friends: Tom was here before the river and the trees; Tom remembers the first raindrop and the first acorn. He made paths before the Big People, and saw the little People arriving. He was here before the Kings and the graves and the Barrow-wights. When the Elves passed westward, Tom was here already, before the seas were bent. He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless - before the Dark Lord came from Outside.'

Tom Bombadil

bullet The Tenth Walker by Lindelea Last Updated: 7/27/2015
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.

Glorfindel agrees to take young Elladan and Elrohir on a journey to meet with their friend, Legolas, while staying in Lothlorien. Seems simple enough, but life has a way of taking plans and turning them upside down. Story is complete. Posting frequently. :) Chapter 1/10 posted 7.17.15

bullet *REDONE* Creation Song of Ilúvatar by Fadesintothewest Last Updated: 7/16/2015
Story of the Royal Family of Mirkwood and a young woman who appears mysteriously and has a great vantage point from which to observe both the light and dark moments of life in Mirkwood. Explores Silvan/Avari culture. In my mind and in this story the wood elves are what outsiders would describe as feral, but also joyful despite the great losses they endure, a glimpse of what we see in The Hobbit. *Story has been edited and reworked! Will post reworked chapters weekly to biweekly!*
