    Summary

    James Hazell is making a movie in London when his past comes back to confront him.

    “We’ve an old friend in common. Ralph Lanyon.”

    James felt his mouth dry out. He said nothing.

    “Gosh don’t you remember?” Bunny’s voice was light and innocent. “He remembers you. He was your head of house at school, wasn’t he? It sounds like he was terrifically strict.”

    He let his voice linger on ‘strict’. James swallowed.

    Summary

    Modern or semi-modern AU.

    Two strands really - the song-fic-titled stories are (often) Legolas/Gimli centric, though not always, and take place now-ish, in a modern world where elves, men, dwarves, hobbits all co-exist. The -Glory titled stories are Glorfindel or Glorfindel/Erestor centric, and usually (no promises) involve a daring exploit (or two) as told by Our Hero, and perhaps some other stuff, as told by his listeners. Set in the same universe, they should all link up.

    Not written in chronological order, either of events, or the telling of events, though I will try to order the series so that it can be read through and make sense.
