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)

For [ profile] allie_meril, who gave me a lovely quote to work with:

For those who believe in God, most of the big questions are answered. But for those of us who can't readily accept the God formula, the big answers don't remain stone-written. We adjust to new conditions and discoveries. We are pliable. Love need not be a command or faith a dictum. I am my own God. We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us.

- Charles Bukowski

It sparked a double drabble, exactly 200 words according to MS word, and very different from the original idea. Of course, Fëanor, major AU, PG?. I've wanted to write something of the sort for years and finally got the much-needed impetus. Thank you, Allie! I hope you're enjoying this.

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

For the "Many Journeys" drabble series on SWG. This is the start of my daily drabbles, but I'm actually rather far back. The stories posted here are all inspired by the July Words of the Day by, with the WoD acting as the title. I decided to do five drabbles per entry, that way I hope I won't clutter your flist too much.

Before I post anything new, here be backups of the stories already submitted over at SWG. These four were for the Seven in '07 Project, and some have art to go with them. None of these is all that great, I believe that most drabbles to follow are far better, so please don't be too spooked...

The disclaimer on the userinfo page applies to all those stories.
