SSP: Two (Yes, TWO!!) New Tolkienfics by Me

The (Cyber) Bag of Weasels

bread and puppet

"About as much fun as a bag of weasels"...when I first saw this Irish adage, it made me think of the life of a writer: sometimes perilous, sometimes painful, certainly interesting. My paper journal has always been called "The Bag of Weasels." This is the Bag of Weasels' online home.

SSP: Two (Yes, TWO!!) New Tolkienfics by Me

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
Tomorrow it is back to work and school, so I will be back on hiatus, writing my thesis, until May. But, over winter break, I had the opportunity to write not one but TWO new Tolkienfic stories, both for the LotRGenfic/MPTT Yule Exchange. So before I sink back beneath the waves of despair work and grad school, I want to link them here, for anyone who might be interested.

As always, comments public and private are very much appreciated.

Víressë (for keiliss). As Sauron's reach lengthens, Winter lingers overlong in Gondor. In the midst of cold, despair, and the slow march to war, Boromir kindles a forbidden love affair with an unknown errand-rider that creates intrigue and betrayal. Contains slash (Boromir/Hirgon) and a scene involving the corporal punishment of a child. Neither is graphic. LiveJournal | MPTT | AO3

Song of the Stone (for lignota). Newly arrived at Khazad-dûm in the Second Age, the Elven loremaster Pengolodh presents a portion of his new book to Narvi only to discover that his understanding of the “great profit” that existed between the Dwarves of Belegost and the people of Caranthir in the First Age is not quite what he assumed.

See y'all in May!

  • So much luck and energy and strength and power for your thesis! ****hugs**** Including tightly crossed fingers and toes for everything going smoothly now!

    You totally rock, too, for having managed also a pinch-hit story in addition to the regular one and everything else. Song of Stone is so beautiful and poignant (review yet to come, I know ;o) ), and I'm looking forward to read Viressë!
    • Thank you! :D I checked into my class today. I am already so far ahead of where I should be that I think I'm going to be just fine. *hugs back*

      Both stories were pinch-hits, actually, although I had a lot more warning on "Viressë" since that author didn't show up for check-in on the 20th and Barb asked me not long after that. I work best under pressure, so it's all good! I wouldn't have had it any other way. :)

      I'm glad you liked SotS and hope you like "Viressë" too! :)
      • I somehow missed that Viressë was also a pinch-hit. Now I'm even more impressed! :D I've still to read it, but really enjoyed SotS.
  • Huzzah! Boookmarked!!
  • Read them both. Have comments. Shall post these in the appropriate places. You might not be surprised to know that Song of the Stone resonated (so to speak) with me on a number of levels.
  • Good luck with the thesis!!

    And, ugh, even just the mention of Caranthir in one of your stories makes me instant click! I loved it. :D Of course he would have awesome daughters!
