My bio of Brodda is now up on the SWG Archive and to be featured in the July newsletter. I would have preferred to wait with the SSP until the newsletter itself was up, but I think I might not have the time, later in the week.

Taboo challenge reviewer
Taboo challenge reviewed 5 fanworks
hhimring: (Default)
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.

The following is an expanded version of my review of this story at the SWG Archive.

Robinka's story Carmina Brethilia is posted here: http://www.silmarillionwritersguild.org/archive/home/viewstory.php?sid=1324
It forms part of her Season of Writing Dangerously project.
For the SoWD, see here:
http://www.silmarillionwritersguild.org/season-of-writing-dangerously.php

[Warning for possible spoilers]

This story is an unusual take on an unusual subject--and as such highly interesting!

The protagonist, as often in Robinka's stories, is Beleg. But not necessarily the same Beleg  we  already know: this, I suspect, is one of the toughest Belegs around.  Although very much a Sinda and in touch with nature, he seems unusually robust and soldierly. (So does Robinka's Mablung.) This is definitely a Beleg who has spent a lot of his time patrolling the borders against orcs and other malefactors, dealing with a merciless enemy. Yet Robinka's Beleg by no means lacks a heart; he has a knack with children and is ready to sympathize with the young and weak.

Chapter One deals with the run-up to the battle. As such it begins cheerfully, even humorously, but the tension mounts and in the description of ugly incidents such as happen in real war, Robinka pulls no punches. She should be strongly encouraged to write the next chapter and give us the battle itself.
