Another Back-to-Middle-earth-Month prompt brought about this double-drabble, this time the Day #20 prompt from Erebor. This is a sequel of sorts to my previous story, "Foundlings"

Today's fic is another piece from my Back-to-Middle-earth-Month efforts, written for the Day #22 prompt from the Misty Mountains. This vignette is a sequel of sorts to Elladaniel.

I thought I'd give LJ another chance to see if I could upload the pics of what we did to my living and dining rooms lately.

And so now you know just what it was that kept me from posting two weekends ago.

And finally, this week's drabble - again written for B2MEM.

Last week's drabble was one of my favorites that were written for B2MEM. Day #15 for The Shire, as should be obvious...

I can't tell you exactly what happened to cause me to skip posting my weekly fics last Saturday - maybe it was the excitement of knowing that we were going to get our new carpet in just two days, maybe it was the apprehension of having to finally move completely out of the two largest rooms in the house to clear the way for the new carpet. But the upshot is that I have a total of four things to post today - two stories (a short story and a vignette) and two true drabbles that will bring my posting in here up to date with my postings in the archives.

This first was, as were many of my offerings lately, as responses to the Back to Middle-earth Month prompts. This particular story was intended for Day #18 - Wilderlands

This has been an "interesting" week all around, but in the madness, I missed an important date. I missed [ profile] engarian's birthday. And now, for whatever reason, LJ refuses to allow me to upload the graphic that I made for her. Good thing I was able to put it up at the Lizard Council!!!

But I wanted to put best wishes here too... Happy Birthday, my friend.

This week's drabble - a double - is also from my answers to the Back to Middle-earth prompts. As I mentioned earlier, all of my drabbles, vignettes and stories for B2MEM are part of what I consider my "I Dhaerlend Dadui" story!verse - an overarching and interwoven storyline that starts in the First Age with "Along Came A Spider" and spans the entire timeline of Tolkien's universe, up to the modern Age with "Ghost" and "Comfort" and "The Ties That Bind".

There is one major work that hasn't seen the public light of day yet: "I Dhaerlend Dadui" itself. For that reason, some of the B2MEM prompts won't be posted for a long time. However, some of those I can post offer inklings as to the directions I intend to take with any number of characters. This one being a prime example, written for Day #4 - Mithrim:

One of the interesting things that happened while I was working on the Back to Middle-earth Month prompts was that a trio of stories emerged concerning Gimli in Aman, after he and Legolas sailed. "Gift", a previous entry here, was the first to emerge. A few days later, this piece popped up as a sequel.

For those who celebrate a holiday today, a gift from my garden to you:

Bless its little heart, this plant thrives on the utter lack of care and pampering that it's been getting for the last twenty years. The plant itself looks like the dickens when not in bloom - but boy-o-boy, when it decides to put on a show...

Not to be considered second-best, my old-fashioned cabbage rose got a decent trimming in January, and is now letting us know that it's a happy camper too.

So... Whether one celebrates Beltain (a little early), Easter, Pesach, or whatever - enjoy the season of New Life.

This week's drabble was also written as part of the Back to Middle-earth Month event. The prompt for this one was "Seduction"... :-D

Written as part of the Back to Middle-earth Month, this vignette is a sequel of sorts to "Light Fingers." In it, Aragorn and Faramir take a look at the code of justice for Gondor.
