This story forms a pair with my earlier ficlet about one of Thengel's daughters, but focusses on Gleowine, Theoden's minstrel. (I've written about Gleowine before, interacting with Eowyn.)
It was written for a challenge at the LOTR community on LiveJournal and inspired by some icons and a headcanon of Oshun's (linked from the story).

I wrote this for the Taboo Challenge at the SWG--specifically the prompt "culture shock".
Not that good a match for a SWG challenge, really, I suppose, but I've been interested in Thengel's daughters for a while and I had this one on my mind right now, because of another challenge and another ficlet.

It's a conversation with Tuor, just after he arrives in Gondolin--and already Idril finds herself falling in love...

So, I finally managed to get this out of my head and write it down...



Title: Under the Evening Star

Rating: PG
Length: c.1300 words

Do you remember last year's Sorry Celebrimbor Month?
I posted the beginning of a story, in which Celebrimbor ("Half-Feanorian") met a stranger in Lindon who was half Easterling.
Here is a second slightly longer snippet, which perhaps explains why Celebrimbor was especially likely to call himself "Half Feanorian" at this time.
I wrote it for the Wavesinger for Fandom Stocking; she had asked for things such as female characters and complicated family relationships.

Characters: Celebrimbor and his mother
Time: beginning of the 2nd Age
Place: Lindon
Rating: Teens
Warnings: references to canon violence and dysfunctional relationships; some angst (sorry, Celebrimbor!)

It moved! This WIP actually consented to move! That is: "Such Great Deeds", aka probably the longest and most rambling conversation between Fingon and Beleg ever written, set during a walk our two protagonists take at night through Barad Eithel.

This snippet itself isn't actually that long, but it's progress: Beleg and Fingon indulge in a bit of musing about Aman and Finwe.

I haven't posted anything to Dreamwidth for a while.
Most of what I have written in the meantime is cross-posted from LJ to AO3, if not elsewhere.
This piece is not. It was written for Oshun as a birthday gift and is a snippet from "Such Great Deeds", but I haven't written the intervening passage yet.


Summary: During a walk at night through Barad Eithel, Beleg and Fingon briefly talk about Maedhros.
Warnings: reference to multiple deaths during war time
Pairing: Fingon/Maedhros (implicit)
Word count: c. 450 words

I've written Findis for the first time and I've written her as an eccentric saint or mystic.
Besides Tallulah's prompts, this piece also owes a little to a plot bunny by Tehta.

Somewhat perversely, this was written for the LoM challenge, but is actually less slashy than my contribution to the SWG Challenge (which hasn't been revealed yet)--although it is part of my Maedhros series and so Fingon/Maedhros is obviously an essential part of the backstory.


Title: A Season on Taniquetil

Summary: For some time, Fingon has settled back into life in Tirion, learning to live without Maedhros. Now duty to a relative summons him elsewhere, into Vanyarin territory.
Setting: Valinor, after Fingon's re-embodiment
Rated: Teens
Characters: Fingon, Findis
Warning: unspecific religious references and (possibly) depressing themes
Length: Quadrabble (4 x 100 words according to MS Word)

Written for the Library of Moria challenge for International Fanworks Day 2015 (http://libraryofmoria.livejournal.com/352008.html)
Prompts (supplied by Tallulah): shoes, mountain, contraption
