dreamflower: gandalf at bag end (bag end 2 by <lj user="danae_b">)

The past few years I have kind of had a tradition of giving my friends a new story set in the Eucatastrophe-AU for my birthday. This one is a day late, due to me having an unexpected errand that took me out of town yesterday, and also to some formatting trouble and a keyboard with the hiccups. At any rate, here is my birthday mathom for this year! I apologize for the lateness!

AUTHOR'S NOTE: This story takes place in my Eucatastrophe-AU, in which the Three Rings do not fade, but are freed instead, by the destruction of the One, and in which Saruman was killed by Quickbeam in the destruction of Isengard--so that Sharkey never came to the Shire. Elves are, for the first time, free to return to Middle-earth from Valinor, and--most important of all, Frodo was healed, and lived on in the Shire, a Shire in which the Edict banning Men never became permanent.

This story takes place about a year after Frodo retired to Gondor (at the age of 83) to work on his book on the languages of Middle-earth. He lives with Gandalf (who also remained in Middle-earth for a while) in the same guesthouse in Minas Tirith that they stayed in after the War. For the first two years he was joined by Merry's son Peridoc, Pippin's son Faramir, and Sam's two sons, Merry and Pippin Gamgee, who were spending time as pages and being educated in the court of King Elessar.

This gave me the shivers; that was Pippin singing, not just Billy. In my minds I could just see Peregrine Took standing on the shore singing this tribute.

While I am quite sure that most of the folks on my flist have probably read this one, since it was posted in 2006, I just finished it for the first time, and am just blown away by it!

It's by [livejournal.com profile] mariole, and it's called By Life or Death. It's an AU in which Strider and the hobbits encounter a LIVE troll right after they found the petrified ones.

An epic battle with the monster and some brilliant h/c, especially for Aragorn and Frodo (though others come in for their share as well), some wonderful angst, lots of love, loyalty and friendship and terrific characterizations of all five heroes (I'm blown away by her Aragorn, as I don't think I'd ever seen her write him before; I'm used to her wonderful hobbits)--well, I'm still a little breathless.

So, maybe if you are new you haven't read this; if it sounds like it might appeal, I highly recommend it! And perhaps if you vaguely remember it from the past, you might want to renew your acquaintance with it--it is certainly worth a re-read!

I forgot that the [livejournal.com profile] great_tales fic for Challenge 202 was supposed to be a fixed-length ficlet of either 142 word or 214 words. So here's my entry that actually qualifies for the challenge, LOL!

Title: Their Other Loves
Author(s): Dreamflower
Rating: G
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings
Character(s): Pippin, Merry
Summary: The Shire may hold first place, but there's room for more in a hobbit's heart...
Word Count: 214

Their Other Loves

I posted this over at [livejournal.com profile] hobbit_holidays.

It's been a long time since I wrote a story that was not either a WIP or an exchange story or a challenge story. But this one came to me tonight after the Children's Pageant at church, and I came home and just wrote it all up at once. And though it's been a very long time, I thought this was a good place for it.

Rating: G, but a little angsty
Summary: It's the Year of the Troubles, and the Year is Turning but the Troubles aren't over yet. Pippin's sister Pimpernel ponders what the New Year might bring. Will her brother ever come home?

The Darkest Night

Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] the_mad_hobbit I am reposting a little political fic I wrote for Marigold's Challenges several years ago. There was a lot going on at the Free Fair in Michel Delving in 1427, and the election of a new mayor was only part of it...

AUTHOR: Dreamflower
RATING: G
SUMMARY: A lot of things happened in 1427.
DISCLAIMER: Middle-earth and all its peoples belong to the Tolkien Estate. I own none of them. Some of them, however, seem to own me.

In 2006 I began posting a silly little crack!fic at [livejournal.com profile] wee_hobbits. I posted two parts and then got stuck. Well, the other day I got unstuck, and finished it for [livejournal.com profile] shirebound's gift folder. Here is Part 3; there is one more part and a short epilogue to go. I included links to Parts 1 and 2, since after six years, it's not likely anyone actually remembers it...

A DIFFERENT KIND OF MARY SUE (A WEE!HOBBITS AU)

Rated G.

[livejournal.com profile] piplover is having an unpleasant medical procedure today, and I posted a little double drabble in the comments of her post to cheer her up!

If you pop over to look at it, leave her a little something cheerful too!

I recently posted a Yule exchange fic that I did as a late pinch-hit for Linaewen. She had requested a story about one of Boromir's adventures on the way to Imladris...

Over at [livejournal.com profile] great_tales they've had an informal fic exchange going. Here's the one I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] labourslamp, who requested a bit of fanon-busting. Be warned, these are not the hobbits you are used to, LOL!

Title: The First Night Out of Bree
Rating: G
Fandom: Lord of the Rings
Characters: Aragorn-Strider, Frodo, Merry, Pippin and Sam
Words: 542
Warnings: Some very cherished fanons turned on their heads.
Disclaimer: Middle-earth and all its peoples belong to Tolkien. I own none of them, though some of them own me.
Summary: Strider finds himself with four rebellious hobbits on his hands.
Author’s notes: [livejournal.com profile] labourslamp's prompt was "Bust your favorite (or least favorite) fanon."  So I set out to do that, beginning with one I know she likes to bust, and busting one of my own favorites, as well as a couple of others, plus I threw in a bit of obscure and discarded info from the History of Middle-earth which I won't identify. Have fun guessing.
