    Summary

    Where the loss of ignorance is more valuable than the knowledge gained, and Edward figures out the source of alchemy a lot sooner than before.

    "Edward has cockroaches under his skin and leeches in his veins. He's vibrating and bursting and his body is too small, too big, doesn't fit quite right. He needs Al to know - needs to tell someone, anyone, but he will cut out his own tongue before he burdens anyone else with this knowledge."

    (Now with a TV Tropes page!)

    Summary

    “I beg your pardon,” he repeated for what had to be the fifth time, “but married?”

    The coat that had started the whole thing was innocuously hanging on the rack next to the door, and Obi-Wan resisted the urge to glare accusingly at it.

    “Sorry,” said Rex with an awkward shrug, “but I don’t make the rules.”

    In which there is a deal, a coat, and what comes after.

    Summary

    Imagine how pissed off you would be if you somehow ended up in Middle Earth in time to help, but you didn’t speak Westron. Or Sindarin. Or Khuzdul. All you have are proper nouns, and some random phrases like Mellon, and Amralime, and, oh yeah, the inscription from the One ring. because that’s going to go over well when you start spouting off long forgotten verse in the black tongue of Mordor….
    So instead of eloquently explaining yourself and saving lives and falling in love with a character of your choice, you have to chase them around like a slightly more verbose Hodor, trying to learn a language and keep the dumb bastards alive.
    ------------------
    Well, it had to happen to someone eventually, and Pissed Off is definitely the way to describe it when it happens to her. But she still tries to do her duty to the fandom and keep the Durins alive just in case it isn't a nightmare after all.

    Summary

    The different peoples of Middle-Earth have their own ways of farewelling the old year and greeting the new. Each race has its own rich customs and traditions to mark the winter solstice and the longest night of the year. Each is as distinct and unique as snow is to fire.

    (But as the wise know, people are always people.)

    A holiday tale set in the Sansûkh universe.
