Tolkien quote of the day:

‘Of course he does. He’s Strider. The chief of the Rangers. Haven’t you got that into your head yet?’

It went in at last, and Butterbur’s face was a study in wonder. The eyes in his broad face grew round, and his mouth opened wide, and he gasped. ‘Strider!’ he exclaimed when he got back his breath. ‘Him with a crown and all and a golden cup! Well, what are we coming to?’

bullet Sad But True by Ecthelion of the fountain Last Updated: 3/24/2016
A story for Celegorm the fair, the third son of Fëanor. An attempt to give the life of a simple villain more details without compromising his essential character. Rated 'Teen and Up' mainly for biased and potentially cynical views of characters.

bullet Sharper Than A Serpent's Tooth by Yeade Last Updated: 3/10/2016
"This was a routine he had performed with three children, shuffling in embarrassment to his and his wife's bedside when the rafters creaked in the wind. He just never imagined he'd be playing the same role for a dragon." // Instead of killing Smaug, the black arrow magically de-ages him, saddling Bard—curse his too-soft heart!—with an ill-tempered dragon child. A very AU mash-up of book and film canon.
