Tolkien quote of the day:

The face of Elrond was ageless, neither old nor young, though in it was written the memory of many things both glad and sorrowful. His hair was dark as the shadows of twilight, and upon it was set a circlet of silver; his eyes were grey as a clear evening, and in them was a light like the light of stars. Venerable he seemed as a king crowned with many winters, and yet hale as a tried warrior in the fulness of his strength. He was the Lord of Rivendell and mighty among both Elves and Men.

Many Meetings, FotR

bullet The Tenth Walker by Lindelea Last Updated: 5/6/2020
Probably been done before, and perhaps better, but Bill the Pony gave my elbow a nudge this morning, causing me to spill my tea, and he licked up all the sugar from the bowl, and is likely to make a complete nuisance of himself if I don't write down his story. Finding rest on the road from Hollin to Caradhras. (It did take some days...). (Next update: Looks like Friday. Written, but not typed in. Swamped at work, a mixed blessing.)

Update: Planning to make this one large story now - with multiple chapters (lots and lots). Fourth chapter updated 8th April 2020. This story was began a very long time ago, and it was never my intentions to leave it unfinished. I will be going back through and editing a few scenes and adding to a few and fixing errors, now that I hopefully understand the Middle Earth world a little better. I hope to add a sprinkling of "The Hobbit" details in certain places where is needed.
