Writing





To Battle, Or Not“Uncle?”
Turgon turned from his spot by the window to look at his nephew. “Yes?”
“They say that you have decided to not go to the battle.” Maeglin replied, twisting his hand in his shirt.
Turgon laughed. “Were you looking forward to ruling in my absence that much?”
“What? No! It’s just, why aren’t you going?” Maeglin looked nervous. “I mean, he’s the only one of your siblings left.”
Turgon paused. “Yes. He is.”
Though neither elf said Fingon’s name, it was obvious to everyone in Gondolin that Fingon had preoccupied Turgon’s thoughts since the first whispers of the planned battle had come.
“Is it because you are still angry at him?” Maeglin asked.
“No. Yes,” Turgon said. “I am angry at him, but I don’t want to leave you alone here to rule.”
“You wouldn’t be. I already told Idril. If you go, I go with you.” Maeglin s


I write a lot of prose, both original and fanfic.

Illusion by LadyBrookeCelebwen Haikuwrimo 2014 - Week 1February 1
You’re conceited and
a bit too sure of yourself;
It’s what I love like.
February 2
I’m watching you act;
You’re an old English gentleman
across the room from me.
February 3
Second glances, second guesses,
You flirt with everyone.
I'm on cloud nine and then in hell.
February 4
Mistrust, dangling over us;
You’re too good for me and
I’m too broken for you.
February 5
Smiles and laughter;
I bow my head down and
hope you don't see tears.
February 6
Hello, goodbye,
Did you finish the test?
I remember every word.
February 7
You’re graduating soon,
I smile and wish you good luck.
It was just a dream.


I also am starting to write more poetry and hope to write more scripts.

You can find my fanfic here and my original works here

DLD/DD/Interviews





Just because I want to keep these all in one place:

DD:
My darling brotherMy darling brother,
I hope things are going well for you.
This summer has not shaped up how any of us expected, has it? To think that one year ago we were sitting in the lap of luxury, and now we are scattered to the ends of the continent in a miserable exile. It is unbearable to think of our cousins still feasting, draped in jewels, while we must content ourselves to live on their pity.
Forgive me. You asked, of course, about the rest of the family in your last letter. Grandfather has been horribly boring lately, sulking around and not doing anything. I know he misses having a kingdom, but really! I do not understand how he manages to spend so much time just lounging around.
I found Anne’s diary the other day, and to quote from it -  
“While being away from home has its disadvantages, I like being surrounded by so many men that are not our relatives. It is a relief to be able to carry on an affair with one of them without having to worry that he is really our cook.
Nine TimesI saw him nine times.
The first time we were both sitting in the room together, getting ready to take the math test that would determine our placement. I was scatterbrained and throwing things around, trying to find the pencils that I had known I would need but had still just tossed in my purse. He was lounging backwards in his chair, looking for all the world as though he didn’t have a single care in the world, including the upcoming test. It annoyed me, that I was frantic and ready to scream, while someone else could be that relaxed.
I tested out of the class.  
I don’t know if he did.
The second time I saw him, it was a few months after I arrived on campus. He was the one rushing and frantic this time, running across the square. He was probably late for class, though I had no way of knowing for sure. I was already lost in my own thoughts and ideas, deciding on my major and convincing people that yes, this is what I really want to do with my life. If they weren

DLD:
Mr. FluffyMy cat is a small god.
No, don’t look at me like that. I know what you’re thinking - that I’m just another crazy cat lady, driven mad by loneliness.
Really, my cat is a small god. All those stories of witches with cats, well, they had to start somewhere, don’t you know?
Anyways, my cat is a small god. Not one of the big gods or tricksters, like Zeus or Raven or whoever else you think. Small doesn’t only refer to the fact that he’s only three pounds soaking wet.
You’d think that being so small he couldn’t do too much damage. Of course, you’d be wrong. Granted, most of his mischief is restricted to messing with my neighbors who have dogs. That’s how I first figured out something was wrong, when he went out one day, got chased by the dog, and the next thing anyone knew, he was back inside the house and poor Zack had his paws on backwards for a moment. They changed back before my neighbor could notice, thank goodness.

“You realize that Grandfather is going to be furious? That’s his youngest son’s stuff, and you two just…how did this even happen? You two flooded Arafinwë’s room with hot water from the bathroom, and you didn’t realize that it was happening?” Maedhros ran his hands through his hair. “How?”

Celegorm mumbled, “We sort of meant for his bedroom to flood.”

Maedhros stared. “Excuse me?”

“We meant for his bedroom to flood. Arafinwë wants to marry one of Olwë’s daughters, so he must like the water, right?” Caranthir replied.

“That is a horrible excuse.” Maedhros shook his head. “Just clean this all up, now, and then we’re going to see Grandfather.”

“But-”

“Clean!”
I’m sorry, Cissa. I had to leave you – I just couldn’t stay anymore. I’m sure by now you’ve heard Mother and Father screaming about betrayal, while Bellatrix agrees with them. Sirius has probably popped up to celebrate another family member who found the right ideas.

And he’s right that I no longer believe everything I used to. But it’s not because I believe in everything Dumbledore does, either.

You know how you’ve dreamed of following in love for years, and the way we’d chatter at night, hoping that one day we’d both have that?

I found that. His name is Ted and I love him deeply.

I’m sorry to leave you, but he’s that dream we both have.

I hope you find it one day, whether it’s with a rich pureblood (which would be better for you, because you wouldn’t have to leave our family behind) or you fall in love like I did.

Love,
Andromeda
Maitimo is fine.  

His brothers don’t notice anything wrong, other than Makalaurë.

He gives Maitimo pinched stares but doesn’t comment on it. Not now, when things among the Noldor are so delicate and this meeting is necessary.  

Findekáno does the same as Makalaurë, and his concerned looks hurt more.

But then Findekáno flashes a smile, and he’s reminded that they are hiding things too. They’re all the same, cursed sons in a house full of them, required to be perfect to keep the peace.

Maitimo smiles across the table at his uncle, hiding his arm.

He has to be fine.

Hiding
So I've been planning to do one of the Flash Fan Fiction Fridays for months now...and I finally got around to it. Not necessarily because I have more time, but because the theme hit at the right time.

I may or may not borrow inspiration for characters' depictions from my own life. ;p Tiny little slice of life drabble, because while I can and do write epic complicated stories, I also like the ones that hint at deeper things while focusing in on a narrow one.

Flash Fan Fiction Friday 10/17/14 - theme "Deception", taking the extra challenge of 100 word limit.

In the Fourth Age, the elves of Valinor attempted to rewrite their books to deal with these new Hobbits. The explanations were laughably bad.

It is the opinion of the authors that the rumors, brought over by the recently returned elves from Middle-earth, of there being a distinct type of Men are exaggerated. It is quite impossible that Illúvatar would have intended for any of his children to be that short.

It is well-known that the dwarves owe their height solely to the mistakes that were made during their making by Lord Aulë as he tried to hide his new children. This mistake was not corrected by Illúvatar, who allowed it to persist in his wisdom in order to convey to all of his children that his wishes and guidance is not to be questioned and that none save him shall try to create, a mistake that was repeated by Fëanáro with the Silmarils.

Bearing all of that in mind, it is far more likely that Hobbits is simply a term applied to all such Men who suffer from a distinct lack of height. Owing to the frailty of Men compared to Elves, and the way that all of those who come from the distant lands seem to be disadvantaged in height compared to those blessed to grow up in these lands, it can be easily believed that some of their children would in fact stop growing a quite a short height.

Lord Manwë has assured the writers of your textbook that there is no danger of exposing any children of Valinor who happen to express interest in either of the Hobbits currently living on Tol Eressëa to them, and that there will be no negative effects on the child’s height. However, we recommend against it due to the shock and horror that your children may experience when confronted with such obvious evidence of the poor living conditions in Middle-earth and the callous disregard shown by those elves who have been there most recently, as evidenced by the refusal of several of the recently arrived to discuss whether they had attempted to provide guidance to such unfortunate beings as to how they could grow taller.

Back Again

Sun Oct 12, 2014, 4:35 PM



Hey guys. One month later, I'm back again - at least somewhat, and probably only until my fall break is over.

If I'm entirely honest, I'm struggling this semester with things. Not going into those things, but let's just say that it's become abundantly apparent that I'm going to have to discuss some of my health issues with my professor, and I really don't want to do that.

Add in one off-putting, flirtatious student, one chaotic run in at Walmart with a professor yesterday, and other things, and I'm frazzled as hell. I mean, there's things I love and that I find really cool and fun (TAing in general!), but it's just one of those times.

So yeah. I'm going to try to get the writing I've done recently up here eventually. I'm definitely running Anonymous Annatar again, and I'm going to try to get this years Halloween story up (assuming I manage to think of a story).

How is everyone else? :)
