Aragorn and Faramir

The Shining Path of Peace

The Shining Path of Peace – Linda Hoyland.

"Forgiving is rediscovering the shining path of peace that at first you thought others took away when they betrayed you. ~Dodinsky.

PG for mention of character death and minor violence.

Disclaimer: These characters all belong to the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien. This story was written for pleasure and not for financial gain.

With thanks to Raksha, Deandra, and Virtuella for editorial assistance and thanks to Dreamflower for suggesting the title.

Written for the Teitho "Betrayal and Forgiveness" contest where it was placed first.

Ill chosen words can lead to conflict and shatter the peace that Aragorn and Faramir hold dear.

Another Tolkien archive at risk

A lot has been posted recently about HASA and I've very sad about its impending closure. I have to say I never truly felt at home there, but the site was a great asset to the Tolkien fandom.

One site I have always felt at home with is

http://www.naiceanilme.net/index.php

It is a gen fic archive specializing in stories about Aragorn and Legolas.

A few months ago, the site owner asked if someone else would take over, as she no longer has time to run it. She is happy to continue to pay hosting costs. No one came forward and the site is sadly neglected with hardly anyone now posting there.

I know nothing about coding or I'd take it over myself, but I'm posting this in the hope that someone with the right degree of expertise might come forward. It would be dreadfully sad to lose another Tolkien archive.
