Many Journeys
In her youth she [Nerdanel] loved to travel far from the dwellings of the Noldor, either beside the Sea or in the hills; and thus she and Fëanor had met and were companions in many journeys.
(J.R.R. Tolkien, Morgoth's Ring)

Many Journeys: Elleth's Fanfic and Fanart [userpic]

Thank you, Lyra for nominating this for a MEFA!

Before the Fall )

Many Journeys: Elleth's Fanfic and Fanart [userpic]

Summary: The Oath of the Feanorians shows Maglor nightmares of what might have befallen, had events played out but a little different. Five drabbles in the 'five things that...' meme style.
Warnings: Occurences of violence, torture, character death (of children) in non-canonical nightmare scenarios. Asterisked cuts contain abovementioned material.

Thank you, Lyra, for the MEFA Nomination!

Summary: The Doomsman of the Valar sees many things. Elwing's life is one of them.
Warnings: Features the kinslayings of Doriath and Sirion, so involves (hopefully implicit) mentions of death and violence.
A/N: For the Mandos challenge at SWG's B2MeM 2010, a character and near-death experiences.

Thank you, Lyra, for the MEFA Nomination!

Warnings: Mention of violence and future character death (Eöl's and Aredhel's respective fates).
A/N: Originally a project contribution for SWG's B2MeM 2010 project, for a story/piece of art in which a colour dominates. Thanks to Dwimordene for nominating this for the 2010 MEFAs!

I didn't expect this to be written, but after another remark from [ profile] aria_elwen the plotbunnies decided they wanted a continuation of Drabbles #1 and #2. 100 words in Open Office, PG, AU, allusions to character death if you want to read it that way. Comes out of too many strange thoughts, but it seemed fitting at that point.

#3 - The New Lamp )

As mentioned over in my own journal, I'm resuming my Daily Drabble Project. While I can't promise that they will be posted daily, I'll try to make at least one post per week containing that week's drabbles.

Prompted by [ profile] aria_elwen: What if Morgoth had stolen the Silmarils but Finwe had lived?

Two drabbles, PG for non-graphic mentions of violence, AU. 100 words each according to Open Office.

#1 - Discovery )

#2 - Fires )

Certainly the distances had now all become hazy and deceptive [...]. But even as he spoke he turned his gaze eastwards, and and he saw that on that side the hills were higher and looked down upon them; and all those hills were crowned with green mounds, and on some were standing stones, pointing upwards like jagged teeth out of green gums.

With Manwe dwells Varda, Lady of the Stars, who knows all the regions of Eä. Too great is her beauty to be declared in the words of Men or Elves, for the Light of Ilúvatar lives still in her face. In light is her power and her joy. [...] Of all the Great Ones who dwell in this world the Elves hold Varda most in reverence and love. Elbereth they name her, and they call upon her name out of the shadows of Middle-earth, and uplift it in song at the rising of the stars.

(J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, Valaquenta)

Since I decided to label this as 'mature content' for obvious reasons, you'll need an account at DeviantArt to see the picture in full view. For those of you who don't have one, I also uploaded it here.

Maedhros was ambushed, and all his company were slain; but he himself was taken alive by the command of Morgoth, and brought to Angband. [...] Therefore Morgoth took Maedhros and hung him from the face of a precipice upon Thangorodrim, and he was caught to the rock by the wrist of his right hand in a band of steel.

(J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, Of the Return of the Noldor)
