    I think it's the Poutine rant that needs to be read by all that makes this...

    Summary

    Beshelar's first impression of Edrehasivar, seventh of his name, had been... well - not much of one at all. The youth seated in the Tortoise Room was nothing like Varanechibel - not in presence, nor in stature - indeed, he had little family resemblance to the late emperor save the winter-grey of his eyes, and the long, slender fingers twisting nervously together in his lap.

    In which Beshelar realises that first impressions don't actually count for much - and that there is more to Edrehasivar than meets the eye.

    Such a lovely look at what the original story can't quite convey.

    Summary

    He hopes Janine is watching Simon’s tracker, because right now he can’t take his eyes off of Five’s route as it makes a definitive turn for the school. “No, no, no,” Sam says. “Runner Five, you’re heading straight for a hot zone. You don’t want to go in there. Trust me, kid zoms are the worst. It’s horrible; they’re all--small, and helpless-looking…”

    There’s a double-tap of acknowledgment from Runner Five’s headset and no deviation from this new and terrible course. “Or you could do whatever you want,” Sam finishes weakly, looking over to see how far out Simon is.

    He catches Janine’s eye by accident, and he gets the expression that says unmistakably, you are the worst operator ever.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

    Summary

    "Potterwatch was legitimized by its dedication to truth, capacity for serious discourse, and avoidance of reverse-propaganda. This separated it from other rebel media, such as the short-lived radio programme Up Voldemort’s Arse which spent several months insisting that Harry Potter was raising an army of dragons in Romania."

    - Snackleholt, Bingsley. "In A Time of Great Need." Wixen Politics Weekly 24 May 2002. Print.
