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

My compilation piece has had its reveal date.
Anyone on my f-list who happens to read it--would this piece benefit from more geeky footnotage? I figured that an Author's Note that mentioned Quenya and "mother's name" might already be off-putting enough, so I sat on my hands. But if anything puzzles you and you'd like it explained, don't be shy and ask!

Title: Forging Gold
Prompt: (B2MeM 2014: Winter) Use the following song to inspire your writing or artwork: "Crystal Forest" by Nox Arcana
Summary:  Maglor and three of his brothers on a day towards the end of the Fell Winter (First Age).
Rating: General
Warnings: none
Author's Notes: The title alludes to the alleged meaning of Maglor’s mother name (Quenya Makalaure, also rendered as “Gold-cleaver”).  Maglor’s father name Kanafinwe is also mentioned, as is the shortened form Kano.

Back to Middle-earth Month 2014 Participant

Some very kind people have already spotted it, but my second non-compilation B2MeM piece was unveiled today:
This was basically a comment fic that ran away with me a little. The ultimate inspiration was Tehta's lovely little piece, The Snake, now posted on AO3 here: http://archiveofourown.org/works/705754/chapters/2712421 (and a discussion on her LJ). 
At first, I was feeling a bit uneasy about my use of the B2MeM prompt, but that final para has been growing on me.

Title: Maglor Tunes a Guitar
Prompt: Durin's Day (Seasons of Middle-earth: Autumn)
Summary: In Umbar, Maglor tunes a guitar in the Feanorian manner. (No, not what you think: nobody dies!)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: moderate violence (very much non-graphic)
Author's Notes: With thanks for inspiration to Tehta and Anna Wing (Apologies for the way I used the prompt; the Dwarves refused to talk.)


Autumn produced a goodly harvest! Next week, it will be winter in Middle-earth and there are a lot more good things to look forward to.
My own compilation piece should be unveiled at some point during the week.

Still doing the review challenge, although behindhand with reporting the reviews and matching them up with specific challenges.

Thank you so much for your kind reception of Part II!
I went straight on and wrote Part III. I can think of a number of other things I ought to have been doing, but at least this is a load off my mind now...

Characters: Maglor, Maedhros, original characters
Setting: Amon Ereb, after the Second Kinslaying

Ok, so I'm quite nervous about this.
Anyone who liked part I of this story probably did not expect this flashback to Maglor and Daeron's encounter at the Mereth Aderthad to follow.
Anyone who saw and liked my snippet on Maglor and Daeron probably did not expect it to be part of a story about Maglor playing for his people after Doriath.
But I'll just forge ahead...

Rating: Teens
Warnings: some risk of humour in the flashback while the narrative frame is set after the Second Kinslaying
Characters: Maglor, Daeron, Fingon, Mablung, Maedhros
Word Count: c.900 words

Done (although perhaps not dusted)!!

The Feanorians are camped on one side of the lake of Mithrim, the Fingolfinians on the other.
While negotiations between their leaders are dragging on, Naurthoniel, a Feanorian, has been getting a Sinda, Huntress, to carry food and other items for her to the Fingolfinian camp in secret.
What happens when the Sons of Feanor find out?

Characters: Naurthoniel (OFC), Maglor, Caranthir, Maedhros
