Latest news

First, I want to reassure my readers that "A time to reap" has not been abandoned.

The next chapter is almost ready, but ff.net's alerts are down again, so I'll not be posting until certain everything is back to normal.

I was thrilled to hear today that "The slave of the Ring" has been accepted at HASA !

I am hoping to write more drabbles in honour of Back to Middle earth Month.I'll be interested to know if you like them or not.

Don't forget there are new utilities and games available every day from the link on my user info page.

Wishing everyone happy reading and writing for Back to Middle earth Month".

C - like certain circumstances in the Citadel

Written for the "There and Back" challenge.
With thanks to Raksha
.

At the doors of the Houses


“Have you heard Ioreth’s words? The King has returned!”

 

“Impossible! The siege must have turned her wits!”

 

“She saw it with her own eyes. He saved Lord Faramir from the Black Breath with his healing hands. So shall the rightful king be known, it is said.”

 

“Look there is he! See the green stone he bears “

 

“Lord Elfstone, My son lies close to death?”

 

“Lord Elfstone!” Save my brother, please!”

These are certainly momentous circumstances for all the city, from the Citadel to the Gates if the King truly has returned after so long.”

 

Intrigued, the crowd followed Aragorn.


This is based of the following passage from "The Return of the King."

At the doors of the Houses many were already gathered to see Aragorn, and they followed after him; and when at last he had supped, men came and prayed that he would heal their kinsmen or their friends whose lives were in peril through hurt or wound, or who lay under the Black Shadow. And Aragorn arose and went out, and he sent for the sons of Elrond, and together they laboured far into the night. And word went through the City: ‘The King is come again indeed.’ And they named him Elfstone, because of the green stone that he wore, and so the name which it was foretold at his birth that he should bear was chosen for him by his own people.

E - like an evil Elrond - Harsh Healing

Harsh Healing

Written for the "There and back" challenge.

This is a sequel to "Odious Orcs". It is a parody,AU and not meant to be taken seriously.


“You are injured yet again? ”

 

“Legolas was tortured by Orcs, then fell from a tree and broke his ankle,” explained Aragorn.

 

“And what of you, my son? “ Elrond enquired, raising his eyebrows and regarding Aragorn, who was covered in blood.

 

“ I was shot by an arrow,” Aragorn explained.

 

“I will heal your hurts,” said Elrond, causing the friends to sigh with relief.

 

“Thank you, we can go on our hunting trip tomorrow, then!” smiled Aragorn.

 

“No, you shall not. I plan to lock you in the infirmary for the next month!” Elrond said with an evil grin.


And a more serious take ......

Consent

“I have told Aragorn that he may have your hand in marriage,

 

Arwen’s face lit up.

 

“When he is King of both Gondor and Arnor,” Elrond continued.

 

Arwen’s eyes blazed. ”Ada, you cannot! That is cruel, that is evil! He is mortal, his days are not like ours.”

 

“Precisely, my child. You need time to reflect on your choice. Aragorn is greatest of Men, but he is still destined to die.”

 

“I have given him my heart and would know bliss as his wife!”

 

“The Doom of Men will seem hard at the ending,” Elrond replied.
