  1. Summary

    This is where I'm going to put all the stories that happen in the DWMP universe but don't necessarily fall within that particular arc. So some of it is (relevant) backstory, some of it is (irrelevant) backstory, some is side story, etc. I'll try and indicate in the notes where/when each story falls, but it generally won't have any impact on DWMP itself, and the collection shouldn't be read as at all cohesive.

    Basically I want a place to fool around in this modern AU without feeling the need to be particularly plot-driven - but still explore some of the backstory I've created that so far exists only as notes.

    (This is also to keep me from getting burnt out writing a chronological chaptered work - sometimes I just want to play around in the sandbox I've created!)

    I often write dwmp fic that gets posted to my Tumblr but, because of length or quality or on account of some other whimsy, does not get cross-posted to Ao3. If you want to make sure you don't miss out, hit up my fic tag or follow me there!

    Summary

    Celebrimbor considers, briefly, whether he might go and live on the Helcaraxë, which he has never seen but is given to understand is empty of people and full of bears. Maybe one of them might like to eat him. Maybe then he will never, ever have to think about his father asking his uncle to talk to him about "the way of things" in a tone that suggests he is clueless about them ever, ever again.

    (Or, Celegorm gives his nephew flirting lessons he doesn't need, Celebrimbor sasses his uncle, and everyone gets the love and validation they need for once.)

    Summary

    “A prison’s still a prison, cousin,” Erik says, leaning against the wall in what he hopes looks like nonchalance but is mostly the fact that the room is starting to spin. “How long you think you can keep me here? Be honest.”

    T’Challa pauses on his way out the door, a step, maybe two away from Erik. He looks strong, clean and composed, with none of the blood and desperation Erik remembers from their last battle.

    “We’re going to do what you wanted,” T’Challa says. “Outreach. Revealing ourselves. Intervening in the world. It’s the right thing to do,” he nods, as if still trying to convince himself.

    “That’s not what I wanted,” Erik says.

    AKA: my take on the ~classic~ Erik wakes up in Wakanda and nothing goes the way he expects fic.

    Summary

    This was a fic I posted on the Silmarillion Writer's Guild in 2016. It was a long time in the writing, and it is one of my favorites. I am posting it again after extensive editing and reworking, so if you liked it before, I encourage you to reread it now in its polished state. And if it's new to you, enjoy! :) It is full of pain.

    The rest is history: Beware of Maiar bearing gifts.

    Summary

    A child is missing. It’s not the first time it has happened. It probably won’t be the last and besides, the town of Milcom has bigger problems. Cut off from the world by snow and scavengers, its people are starving and no one, not the local lord, not their gods, seems to care. Enter Imrael Sovelin, trainee doctor and professional meddler, who is determined to save them, and his sometimes guide, sometimes friend Khazri Il'harren who has more pressing concerns; what really happened to Wyne Orendason? What lies at the bottom of Milcom Lake? And why is this all so horribly familiar?
