Silken Peril

Silken Peril by Linda Hoyland

Rating T

Prompt - Faramir is poisoned by something meant to hurt Aragorn (food, drink, hidden needle, cloth soaked in something...) and Aragorn uses his power to heal him.

All recognisable characters are Tolkien's, not mine. I make no money from writing this.

Summary- A helpful gesture has dire consequences.

June Teitho Challenge

Teitho: June challenge "Circles"
Mon May 25, 2015 7:43 am (PDT) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia
Our theme for June is Circles. Thanks to Cassie Hughes for the suggestion!

We can go round in circles, either mentally, trying to work out a problem or physically like Sam and Frodo getting lost in Mordor. Other things can go round in circles as well, especially strories - like the echoes of Beren and Luthien in Aragorn and Arwen, but also different fads and fashions, until they come full circle, because the wheel of fate is turning...


There are indeed many metaphorical uses for a circle, but it can also be a regular, physical object - stone circles or crop circles (with a hint of mystery), people dancing in circles... A circle can also mean a selected group of people, the "inner circle" of advisors or close friends. It can be a symbol of solidarity and equality, like the round table of Arthurian knights.



Middle-earth has also its own circle terminology: when men die they go 'beyond the Circles of the World'. Not to mention that rings are, of course, also circles.



As you can see, you can choose from many meanings the one that fits best for your story or picture. In this topic, there are no corners to hide behind from plot bunnies!



The deadline for this challenge is June 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!

A/n. I've finally revised and posted this so I hopefully won't lose it again. It is intended as the conclusion to"The the Rod and the Crown."

Under the Shadow of this Red Rock

Under the Shadow of this Red Rock - Linda Hoyland.

sun

“And the dry stone no sound of water. Only

There is shadow under this red rock,

(Come in under the shadow of this red rock),

And I will show you something different from either

Your shadow at morning striding behind you

Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;

I will show you fear in a handful of dust.” – T.S. Eliot – The Wasteland.

With thanks to Raksha and Deandra.

May Teitho Contest

This May, a new theme is coming to the stores - and the theme is Money. Writing or drawing for it is completely free!
Monetary system in Middle-earth is something we don't know much about. We know, for example, that Bill Ferny wanted twelve silver pennies for his pony, which was three times its value, and there are some other mentions of coins, but not much more than that. There are many interesting question about currency of different races and cultures, and its origin and value, but we would like this to be more personal than an academic discussion.

Money is an important part of our lives. Sometimes we wish it wouldn't be so, but the world's economy is based on it, and we can't escape it. We have to earn it and spend it, save it, worry about it... Do you think that Tolkien's heroes have the same worries, at least at some point in their life? How does a lonely ranger make money, so he can stay a night at the inn and buy some provisions? And whet about when he becomes a king and suddenly has to care for the economics of the whole kingdom? Where does the wealth of Elves come from, and does Legolas get pocket money from his father?

The deadline for this challenge is May 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!

Naice a Nilme.

I just checked in again at N&N as I do at least once a week and again, no new stories other than mine have been posted.

I would love it if those of you who write stories that feature Aragorn and/or Legolas (even if it is only a brief mention) could post them on N&N.

http://www.naiceanilme.net/

I would hate to see this archive wither and die through lack of interest.

If there is anything that would make folk more likely to post at N&N, please let me know or if there is any way I can be of help.

I know we have the big Archives like AO3, but I feel there is still a place for small archives and that our stories deserve maximum exposure.

The are so many Aragorn and Legolas genres and family and friendship combinations that are welcome at N&N.

On a personal note, I'd love to see more Aragorn and/or Legolas stories with Hobbits there as well as more Aragorn and Faramir friendship.

The Man Behind the King

"But when Aragorn arose all that beheld him gazed in silence, for it seemed to them that he was revealed to them now for the first time. Tall he seemed and yet in the flower of manhood; and wisdom sat upon his brow, and strength and healing were in his hands, and a light was about him."
Format: short story
Genre: friendship
Rating: PG
Warnings: alcohol consumption
Characters: Aragorn, Faramir
Pairings: none
Summary: Faramir discovers an unexpected side to the new King.
