Tree and Stone
General Serial Rated:Teens
Middle-Earth belongs to JRR Tolkien; he just didn't write enough about it!

There was another Dwarf in Gondor during the waning days of the Ring War, and he was the only one of his Kindred in the White City during the siege, where he met a woman whose roots were in Ithilien.

The Airts Tales
General Serial Rated:All
Inspired by the Four Elements Challenge on the SWG site, this is the first of five linked stories. (And yes, I know it wasn't a recent challenge, but Life interfered until now; many thanks to Mike for helping me resolve some computer issues, and to RiverOtter for the beta!) I’m posting it here and not there because it really isn’t Silmfic, and because it’s related to my novel, Tree & Stone. “O’ All the Airts” is a famous poem by Robert Burns, the first of the three greatest Scottish writers.”Airts” is a Scots Gaelic word for “wind” or compass direction, linked in Celtic lore to the elements, which provided me with the idea for this series.

Saving Galadriel
General Rated:All
This story arrived after seeing The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies. In a way, it's a sequel to an earlier story (after seeing the first Hobbit movie), "Needles, Thread & Yarn," although I think that this can be read alone.

If you have not seen the 3rd movie, let me tell you simply that there is a scene at Dol Guldur in which Saruman, Gandalf, Elrond, Radagast, and Galadriel confront the Nazgul AND Sauron makes his presence known; the effect upon Galadriel is profound.
