    Summary

    "Here's an idea. I protect you, and you protect me," Boromir stood up and held out his hand.

    Pippin took it. "Promise?"

    "Promise."



    Listen, Pippin is my favourite character and there aren't enough stories centering on him for my liking, so here is my deep dive or whatever into his character. Obviously it is going to be funny because I can't take anything seriously, but I added some angst just to spice it up a bit. Also, no way Pippin went through all that stuff and came away without any consequences.

    Summary

    Christmas is in crisis! A theft of Grinch-level proportions has occurred in the North Pole, although the Grinch is not the one responsible this time. All of the presents for the good boys and girls of the Earth have been stolen and scattered across the multiverse. The only hope for Santa and the elves, including Buddy Hobbs (a human raised by elves), is Neas the Gladiator of Gallifrey. Luckily, they have two incarnations of the Gladiator to help save Christmas. It truly is a "holiday duality" in this 2-part Infinite DC Journeys special, narrated by Buddy's adopted elf father, Papa Elf.

    Summary

    Adaine Abernant was broken.

    I mean, that was the only explanation wasn’t it? That was the only reason she felt so empty, so alone. She had a family, a family which never actually did anything bad to her. But still, she felt like she had no one.

    Figueroth formerly Faeth was a monster.

    She was reminded of that every time her Dad looked at her with something bordering on hatred, or when her mom looked at her with guilt, or when her friends pointed and whispered behind her back, since her horns came in it felt like she had no one.

    When Fig finds a message in a bottle which Adaine had thrown from the shore of Fallinel perhaps they both find someone.

    Summary

    C’était la nuit de la pleine lune dans le royaume Ilurambar du monde d’Hellë et les loups sont de sortie.

    Comme à chaque pleine lune dans ce royaume, l’elfe combattante Mihee Yasaï est de garde dans la forêt des loups, au centre du royaume à la frontière entre le territoire des Elfes et celui de l’ombre. Perchée sur un arbre, elle guette grâce à ses oreilles pointues, sa vue et son ouïe sur-développées le moindre débordement, la moindre intrusion. En bref, elle et son familier Fanä, une magnifique louve blanche augmenté assise au bas de l’arbre, sont là pour s’assurer que tout se passe pour le mieux, et qu’aucune créature du royaume ne soit blessée.

    Seulement, ce qu’elle, comme les loups, ne savaient pas, est que cette nuit allait être très particulière...

    Summary

    “The twin star will rise again,
    when the shadow born in light,
    meets the light, that lives in shadow,
    when brightness embraces darkness,
    when the night becomes bright day,
    then is united, what once was separated.
    Then the sinner is redeemed,
    then the evil will give way.”

    There’s this very old prophecy almost every elf has forgotten about.
    And what does it has to do with the Shadow, assassin of the Queen of the Dark Elves or the young Light Elf, who he just met?

    Summary

    Vesper, a dark Elvish witch and alchemist, lives in an uncomfortable position, sharing her home
    with the likes of none other than Lo, a man-eating demon apart of a greater species of creatures
    known as Comedenti Alatis (Latin: winged eater). They carry a typical master/servant relationship,
    though with emphasis on convenience rather than personal attachment, as much as they may deny
    the existence of the latter.

    Summary

    "The daughter of exiles needs return, thy Lord and Lady bid thee fetch her."

    Her whole life she always felt a little out of place and out of sync with the world, then she started having dreams with a man she had never seen before. She didn't think anything of it until he showed up one day outside the window at school. She fell out of the window and landed in Middle-earth.

    To avoid spoilers I have tried to start off with the most generic tags I could think of, so you sorta know what's coming, but nothing specific. I will post warnings at the top of chapters with more 'adult' or 'triggering' content.

    Summary

    Legolas never knew the right thing to do.

    In his forest, messages came on the breeze. The trees told him of approaching spiders. Small creatures told him where to find berries and even the earth beneath his feet told him, ‘this is where you belong’. He always knew what to do in the forest, but in this Mannish place he was at a loss.

    *****
    Why did you write this?
    'Never Trust an ELF!': this scene in the movies got me thinking. Why exactly is Gimli so angry?

    So, what's the story about?
    This is a look at Legolas, who Tolkien was somewhat vague about in the book. We all love Orlando, but I've mixed it up and cast differently. This is also a cultural exploration of Dwarves, and a look at Gimli's growth in understanding that history may be more nuanced than what was on public record.

    Why is it so long?
    It is a worldbuilding meander, looking at some of the bits we were not shown in the books & films, including the bromances and slash. We explore the characters and events in both The Hobbit & Lord of the Rings, with back-stories, and rummaging in heads.

    I hope you enjoy it.

    Summary

    It is meant to be simple, but nothing ever is when it comes to the twisted tangled thread of fate which ensnares a small number.

    Haruno Sakura dies.

    That is meant to be the end of it all, but that’s not quite the truth. Haruno Sakura dies, yes, but that is not where her tale ends. Rather, that is where it all begins – the beginning of a strange adventure all of her own. Haruno Sakura dies a bloody death, in a grey world marred by war where man kills man, each fighting for their own beliefs, and she is subsequently made anew in a world where the boundaries between good and evil are so clearly defined.

    Ever there is a question resounding in her mind—

    “Oh Child of War, will you ever know peace?”

    Summary

    Summary

    In my time as a commander in the Vrihedd Brigade and as a Scoia’tael commander, I have survived great feats — the execution of the Vrihedd officers, the marring of my face, the battle in Upper Aedirn, and the most recent, — going toe to toe with the Wild Hunt. So to say that I'm sick was just well, a d'yaebl aép arse! I don't get sick, ever. This. Must. Be. A. Grave. Mistake. A mistake! And why does Hylde look at me that way? She's angry of course (for when is she not with him) but, is that worry?

    I am most definitely not worried about a certain Scoia’tael commander. And why should I anyway - they’re the bane of existence, they do more harm than good plus they endanger both human and elven lives. So why should I worry? But seeing Iorveth loosen himself, inhibitions be damned, drinking the night away — the fear of getting recognized by dh’oine stripped away paints him in a new light. Something warmer, of a life that could have been. Whatever this is, this feeling? Ha! I'm not fond of him, not at all. No. It's something else, something closer to concern. But I'm not gonna tell him that. This scowl is all he's ever going to get.
