I've written two gafillers/fleshing out the plot stories for "Teitho" recently and another for the LOTRGFIC challenge.tHat was fairly easy to write,but the Teitho stories felt like drawing blood from stones!I started off writing this kind of story and I still finf Houses of Healing plots easy enoungh as I think I've told that story about 6 times and am not fed up with it,and that's not counting drabbles!

I've recently written another story using my own plot with Tolkien's characters and what a blessed relief it was not to have to keep the book open and keep checking I was not contradicting anything in it!

I'm curious what others find easiest to write,stories which flesh out something Tolkien wrote such as my "Kingdom of Ashes" or a plot of your own.

“It’s magic, naneth!” Estel exclaimed, gazing in wonder at Lake Nenuial.

The setting sun was reflected as a crimson ball of flame within the waters.

“Our people lived here long ago,” said Gilraen. “That is why I asked Master Elrond to bring us here that you might see it. Wait until the moon and stars come out. The water will turn silver while the stars’ reflections will twinkle like diamonds upon the water.”

“I’d like to build a house and live here when I’m grown up,” said Estel.

Gilraen smiled wistfully. Maybe you will, son,” she said. “Maybe you will.”

Aragorn had heard tales of the sea, but could never have imagined its size!  Blue waters stretched out until they seemed to touch the sky.  The waves broke frothy crests upon the sand, tireless steeds of Ulmo.

He gazed at that distant horizon. Somewhere out there, far to the West, his ancestors' land had fallen beneath those blue waters.  And still farther westward lay the forbidden shores of Valinor. 

For a moment he stood lost in wistful thought, wondering what might have been.  

Aragorn grasped a pebble and cast it into the waves. Then he walked away without looking back.
