Title: To Protect and Serve (for tolkien_weekly's prompt, "Serve")
Author: Kaylee Arafinwiel
Summary: Wiseman, Alaska’s newest police officer  looks back, while he’s set to begin his first day. (Set in Fiondil’s “Elf, Academy” ‘verse, and tagged to EA 3, Chapter 85, “Prince Legolas’ First Day”.)
A/N: Finally, Elladan pulled up across the street from the station. “You’ll do fine,” he told Legolas. “Just don’t take over the station immediately. Give it ten minutes or so before you do.”
Legolas stared at his friend in disbelief and then, seeing the glint of humor and mischief in the peredhel’s eyes, he allowed himself to relax and chuckled. “I was planning on waiting a good half hour before taking over,” he quipped and Elladan barked out a laugh.
“Good luck,” he said as Legolas climbed out of the car and then he drove off, leaving the prince to face the Mortals alone.

Gen Ex Letter 2017

My apologies! I've had a very busy week, and I won't be able to finish this letter before assignments go out. I'll try to have it done by the end of Wednesday (or if I don't manage that, as soon as possible).


Dear Artist or Author,

Thank you so much for making art or writing for me! I'm happy that we share a love for these fandoms and characters. I mean the prompts as suggestions only, in case it's helpful to have a starting point (and it’s fine to make art from my fic prompts or fic from my art prompts). If they don't work for you or if you have an idea you like better, then feel free to go with what inspires you. I don’t want this to be stressful, and I’m sure I will love what you make.

Here are the things I've written since the last time I shared stuff here, mostly drabbles and ficlets. It's all Tolkien, for The Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings.

Drabbles, drabbles everywhere

The Multifandom Drabble Exchange 2017 has just been revealed. (This is the same drabble exchange that was run on Imzy last year, but since Imzy is no more, it has now moved to AO3.)

Oh my GOSH you guys. I have ten gifts (or maybe eleven, since something on my gift page is currently stuck in a weird AO3 limbo). I feel like someone just handed me a big basket of puppies and kittens. I'm still in the middle of reading my way through them, and then there's the rest of the collection(s) to look forward to.

I was hoping to go on a treat-writing spree myself, but I was so busy/tired/distracted with Chess that I only managed a set of three drabbles for my recipient. Maybe next time!

The main collection (with one drabble for each person): here
The treat collection (with all the rest): here

Edit: It turns out the extra one was a glitch, but I'm so not complaining. I've read my gifts now and they are all just great.

So the tolkien_weekly comm doesn't seem to be over here at DW, or maybe I'm just no good at finding it. But I peeked over at LJ, and found out that I'd nearly missed the latest batch of prompts for the most recent challenge, which began on my birthday, May 29. I'd already completed the prompt "Who?" a while back when Emma gave it to me - I'm pondering what to do with the others. (Thank you to Linda Hoyland for the three new prompts, pondering them now!)

May 29 - Who? (Aragorn ponders the Three Hunters' strange observer)

Who was he who walked, cloaked in white, under the trees before them? Gimli the Dwarf believes him to be Saruman, which makes sense, Aragorn supposes. Saruman is the White, after all, and dwells not so far from Fangorn. Legolas eyes the White Wizard with suspicion, and Aragorn is on guard.

Who then? Not Saruman – or rather, he is Saruman as he should have been. Indeed, he is the White – but he is Gandalf, called Stormcrow, Ill-news, in Rohan. Gandalf renewed, Gandalf the White! Together with Gandalf, the Three Hunters find Isengard – and the Hobbits. Saruman, your staff is broken!

June 5 - What?

June 13 - Why? (Young Aragorn/ Estel asking why he is different from those around him.)

June 19 - Where? (Faramir and Eowyn debate where to hold their wedding.)

June 27 - When? (Arwen and Aragorn wonder when they might wed.)

July 12 - Which?

Mae govannen!

Hello and welcome! My name is Kaylee Arafinwiel, the Peredhel Perian :) You may find me in this cosy little smial, not too far from the Woody End, a lost elfling raised by hobbits. I'm thirty-two now, not quite of age by my neighbours' standards, and not nearly of age by my own people's, that's for certain - but we'll let that pass, shall we :)

The rooftree is heavy with apples, and you're quite welcome to join me up there or perhaps out by the fishpond - which seems to reflect the stars even in the light of day - for a spot of tea. So do come in, and be welcome here, whatever business brings you to my corner of the Shire.

I'll have to check the larder for cold chicken, pickles and seed cake...one never knows when neighbours, or even strangers, might come to call!

On Vacation!

Ok, everyone!

Starting tomorrow, I will be gone on vacation for about 2 weeks. Since any internet connections will probably be iffy, I won't be updating until I get back.

Wishing all of you happy birthdays, anniversaries, etc. and I will *try* to play catch-up when I get back.

Take care, everyone!


Silm ficlet: Mablung

Belated fill for a Tolkien Weekly challenge, which I had been thinking about at the time, but did not manage to write. 
I suppose, in some fashion, a coda to Such Great Deeds, which features Mablung and alludes to the wolf-hunting scene from Beleg's POV.

Last One Standing
(200 words) by Himring
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Major Character Death
Characters: Mablung of Doriath
Additional Tags: Battle of the Thousand Caves, Double Drabble, Sindar, Doriath

Mablung's last stand before the Treasury of Menegroth during the Battle of the Thousand Caves.

ETA: This had a couple of the kind of errors in it that happen when you try and write fic in the early hours of the morning. I think I've caught them now, but if you spot any that I overlooked let me know, please. I should post more slowly, really, rather than editing online, but sometimes I need to hurry to escape my inner censor who is doing his best to cut me off.

On a happier note, rec time! I was going to post this during the anon period, and then I realized it would be too conspicuous if I recced all the Tolkien fics except for my own. I did assemble them while creators were still anon, if that matters to anyone. Here are a handful of works I enjoyed, in these fandoms: the Tolkien fanfilm Born of Hope, Greek & Roman Mythology, The Hobbit, The Hunger Games, and The Lord of the Rings. (Disclaimer that I only know The Hunger Games from fandom osmosis, but I enjoyed the fic anyway.)
