  3. Summary

    The mahtari had no names. The mahtari, they were told, needed no names. But Éomer had always thought of her as Olos. Mithrandir had it in a song once, when Éomer was so small that he still sat at his mother’s skirts in the Meduseld, and though he spoke no Elvish of any sort he remembered that word. He never knew what it meant, but the roundness of it on his tongue fit with the elegant curves of the mahtar he and Théodred rode together into battle.

    *

    There have always been mahtari in Middle Earth - what matter where they came from?

    The House of Eorl, the War of the Ring, and the mahtari. They pray for a fruitful hunt.

    Summary

    The first time Vex’ahlia holds her newborn child, her beautiful Vesper, face wrinkled and pink, hair a dusting of black fuzz on top of her tiny soft head, all she can think of is how lucky she is. She thinks it again, and again, through one birth, then another, and another, and another.

    How lucky am I. How lucky are we.

    (Many years later, as she watches them age, as she watches her children grow old and grey, she will wonder if maybe, just maybe, she wasn’t so lucky after all. She knew, when she was younger, that she would live to see her children grow old; she hadn’t realized that she would live to see them die, too.)


    Vex’ahlia, and the grief of aging slowly.

    Summary

    When Foggy Nelson killed his best friend, it was with a change of clothes. As far as murders go, it’s not one that he can be prosecuted for. It’s also not something that can ever be forgiven.

    The Defenders disagree.

    Summary

    ...and that's how Tony finds himself in the back of a limousine with Stella Rogers, who's in full vintage hair and make-up, wearing a perfectly tailored uniform that's brand new but looks like it's from the 40s, and heels that are Manolo Blahnik if he knows his shoes. He's doing his best not to chew on his nails or stare at her legs or come apart at the seams. He thinks he succeeds in one out of three. 

    Tony meets always-a-girl!Steve and takes the long way around to realizing he's in love.
