Tolkien quote of the day:

bullet A Perilous Journey to Lorien by LadyJaina Last Updated: 6/9/2021
Overwrought by Gandalf's passing, the Company tarried too long at the first glimpse of safety...with disastrous consequences. In the original story, the Fellowship makes it to the Golden Wood by the skin of their teeth, but what would happen if they were delayed? A Fellowship story. Rated for violence and mild gore.

bullet Destiny's Child by Mirkwoodmaiden Last Updated: 5/15/2021
Éowyn is an endlessly fascinating character to me. This is her story, to my mind. This story will eventually merge with my story of Faramir, "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they meet. It is her story in that story arc. The first chapter was inspired by Lindelea asking about how Éowyn became a Shieldmaiden.
