- Part 1 of An Unexpected Interference
When Kili hunts, he hunts alone: not only because archery skills are something of a rarity among the dwarves, but also because you have to be quiet, and how can you be quiet, when there are no iglishmêk signs for half the things you need to say, and sometimes there are even no words in Westron or Khuzdul to explain them.
So Kili hunts alone, and happily bastardizes all the languages in his head. Sometimes inexplicable things get strange new names. Sometimes the things he does leave even Dis at a loss of words.
And what's a mother to do?
(or "How Kili's Attempts to Deal With Semantic Lacunae Ended With Him Going On The Quest". Compatible with Dragonsolver but written as a standalone.)
- Part 5 of Arrangements From Afterlife
Carmen is an artist who's learning to blacksmith. Her boyfriend, Malcolm, is a PhD candidate in history. What do two modern people do when tossed into the middle of the War of the Ring? How do they survive with moderate camping skills? What do they do with their technology and foreknowledge? How does Carmen, a medium-skinned Puerto Rican, deal with racism in Middle-earth? Can they learn the languages? Can they deal with Middle-earth hygiene? Can they come to grips with the truth of their situation?
Will they ever get back home?
