Do Try To Keep It A Secret“You’re helping Fingon,” Celebrían said.Do Try To Keep It A Secret by *LadyBrookeCelebwen
Elrond froze in his reading, looking up to see his wife standing there. He had tried to hide his search from her, out of fear.
“You’re helping him,” she said, sounding resigned to this. “Finarfin is my grandfather, the king of the Noldor, and most of his advisers consider this at the very least stupidity and at the worst treason. Most of my uncles are torn between cheering him on and tossing him off a cliff, and you’re helping him.”
As Celebrían continued on, Elrond grew paler and paler, wondering if now, after losing his daughter, brother, and parents, he was going to lose his wife.
“And Eru help me, I can understand why,” when Celebrían finished, Elrond stared at her. She smiled and knelt to kiss him on the forehead.
“You’ve lost so much, dear. It’s only natural that you would want Maedhros back, when he was one of the many that you’v

Turgon grabs his daughter and drags her inside, while Idril stares at the sky. Elenwë is waiting for them, all of the windows now shut and bolted against whatever is out there. Silence is all around them, as Turgon’s followers and servants nervously go about their business, always afraid to make noise and bring wrath and ruin down upon them.
Turgon hurries to their rooms. They are in the deepest part of the buildings now, and Turgon forces himself to smile at his mother as they pass her. Anairë makes the effort to smile back, though it is laced with bitterness that cannot be hidden.
Turgon knows this bitterness as well as anyone. He tries to keep from teaching it to his daughter, preferring instead to educate her in the arts and knowledge that he learned as a boy. But Idril has learned her lessons too well, lessons about not lingering outside, not making noise, and Turgon curses the Valar every day for what their life has become.
When his brother had vanished, Turg
RegretsIf his Orcs think his orders strange, they do not speak of it in his presence.Regrets by *LadyBrookeCelebwen
Saruman the Great is their leader, and his will above all else rules theirs. And if he says that they are to leave the odd man in the woods alone, they do so.
As the creatures flee and scurry away to hide from the approaching enemy, Radagast grabs his hedgehogs and his birds and tries to hide. Thranduil's gates are too far away for him to reach. There is a strange symbol set on these Orcs, a white hand. Radagast knows this should remind him of something, but he can't remember what.
They have spotted him, but make no move to attack. Radagast holds his breath, knowing that attacking would be a fool's move, and only by not doing so can he hope to escape and make his way to warn the others. When they have passed, he hurries towards the gates. Thranduil must be warned, and the Men and Dwarves as well.
Saruman watches from his tower, his gaze reaching farther than it ever has before. He does not check on Gan
Literary Compass - Vol. 1WelcomeLiterary Compass - Vol. 1 by `mirz-alt
If one is looking for Literature, you don't need to go far on deviantART. There is a large community of writers and a plethora of work to peruse. Featuring genres such as fantasy, mystery, horror, and romance, one would be hard-pressed to find an area not covered. However, due to the nature of the site, shorter works tend to get more focus. It's easier to quickly read a poem or a short story, and thus many of the feature articles on dA showcase those works. However, there are many novelists and serial writers among the mix, oftentimes fighting an uphill battle to have their works seen and appreciated. With that in mind, I have started an article to spotlight some of those artists and their literary-worlds. The works covered in this feature will exclusively be long-form fiction such as novels, trilogies, etc., or fiction serials.

So, normally I try to refrain from screeching about how horrible this or that company’s idea is.
If any of you have been reading the news about Kindle Worlds, however, this is one time I’m going to flat out tell you that it is horrible. Not because the possible end results I can see coming from it (because I’ve discussed those in the fandom I’m in, and they’re speculation, not facts) but because of the terms of the contract.
Here are just a few of the terms Amazon has:
“Amazon Publishing will acquire all rights to your new stories, including global publication rights, for the term of copyright.”
Kindle Worlds is a creative community where Worlds grow with each new story. You will own the copyright to the original, copyrightable elements (such as characters, scenes, and events) that you create and include in your work, and the World Licensor will retain the copyright to all the original elements of the World. When you submit your story in a World, you are granting Amazon Publishing an exclusive license to the story and all the original elements you include in that story. This means that your story and all the new elements must stay within the applicable World. We will allow Kindle Worlds authors to build on each other's ideas and elements. We will also give the World Licensor a license to use your new elements and incorporate them into other works without further compensation to you.
Term of copyright is a long time. According the U.S. Copyright Office (as found here [link] ), copyright lasts for the life of the author plus 70 years - in other words, your stories are never yours again. I am not an expert on the terms of actual book publishing, but “All rights for the term of copyright” would send me fleeing from a publishing offer.
Poor Customer Experience: We don't accept books that provide a poor customer experience. Examples include poorly formatted books and books with misleading titles, cover art, or product descriptions. We reserve the right to determine whether content provides a poor customer experience.
To take an example from my own fandom activies, I have a story titled “Rainbow”. From the title, a lot of people have thought that it would be uplifting fluffy goodness. In reality, it’s one of the most depressing stories I’ve ever written, about a woman who has lost all her children and her husband and now has only memories sparked by colors to remind her of them. I’m sure that it could anger someone at Amazon and be blocked for being misleading.
Amazon’s terms (as of this moment) can be found at [link] .
Personally, I’m not too worried about anyone ever pressuring me to sign up for this or asking why I don’t. It’s extremely unlikely that the fandoms I’m in the most would ever sign up for something like this and even if they did I have no interest in it.
But in terms of all fanfic authors, you’re worth more than this. The terms are awful. For the most part, we’re in this for the fun of it - and do you really want to lose that awesome original character for maybe $5 a month?
None of what Amazon is doing is illegal, but it’s the kind of slimy thing that only belongs on the bottom of a pond.
