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]

Originally written for the Cuiviénen challenge at B2MeM 2010 over at SWG, and then rather far from happy with it, I gave this some time to simmer and twisted and added a bit here and there. I abandoned the drabble format and introduced some different imagery that perhaps goes some way toward explaining Fingon's motives for the outcome of this AU, if you want to use the term motives at all.

Warning for AU, death scenarios, grisly imagery, blood.

The challenge: Choose a favorite novel, short story, or poem. Write down the first line from it. Begin a story or poem using that line (or create an artwork that could be inspired by a scene beginning with that line). If the line has names or places that do not appear in your story, you may substitute something more appropriate.

Based on the beginning of a Neil Gaiman short story:

I guess I've been following Scarlet for a long time now. (Pages from a Journal Found in a Shoebox Left in a Greyhound Bus Somewhere Between Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Louisville, Kentucky – Neil Gaiman, in Fragile Things)

I guess I've been following Russandol for a long time now. )

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)

Uhm, yes. This is what you get when your next-room-neighbour does late night skyping and wakes you with her shrieks, and then upon checking the flist you stumble over this week's prompt at [livejournal.com profile] 15_minute_fic. -_- However this came out of it I don't know. My mind is a scary place.

I guess I should warn for language, OOC-ness of a sort, slash and allusions to non-con incest, but then this is a humour-ish (if lame, I can't write that sort of thing) story, and harmless if you know the context. Also, with a terminus ante quem of 4th century AD Egypt, toothpaste doesn't seem like such an anachronism for appearing here.

Snip. )
