cairistiona: (snowy)
This is a snippet I wrote in 2012, and I remember in the comments issuing a bit of a dare to [livejournal.com profile] rs9 about illustrating it... and she did! So here's a reposting, complete with her wonderful artwork:

Midsummer in the Year of the Fall of Sauron

Posted originally at Stories of Arda, I'm reposting it here as an illustrated edition! Illustrations by [livejournal.com profile] rs9, now with a tiny epilogue inspired by her drawing.

Rated R originally for adult themes.

A short story of the love between King Elessar and his Queen. Many thanks to Inzilbeth, my tireless beta and good friend. All characters belong to the Professor. I'm merely filling in the corners.

And fic rec time again!  This one is from a brand new writer in the fandom, who I "met" when she emailed in response to a story of mine.  By her name alone, you know with whom her heart lies!   This is her first published fanfic, the first of what I hope will be many.  And I know she lurks here at LJ, peeking at Aragorn every day, so.... *waves*... Hi, Striderette!!   Hopefully one of these days you'll venture into LJ-land and join the fun here. :)

So, grab a tissue and head over to NaN for a moving one-shot:

Passing along two wonderful stories, in case you haven't already found them:

Labyrinth Time by Fiondil
Summary: Hidden in the fastness of Menegroth is a labyrinth. Deep in the woods of Lothlórien lies another. Though separated by time and space, they have a connection, one that lies in yet another wood. Inspired by the Teitho contest ‘Crossing Borders’.  Wonderfully creative, very unique story.

and

Seven Sins - Sloth Challenge.

Title; Missing Breakfast
Rating; PG

Characters;Aragorn and Arwen.
For the 'Sloth' challenge.


There's no summary given, so I'll just say it's a delightful drabble depicting a moment between our favorite King and Queen. :)

I'm posting this a bit early, because you never know what RL is going to do.  I'm killing two birds with one stone with this, as [livejournal.com profile] estelcontar1 , in response to the drabble meme (yes, I'm still working on them), had requested a drabble set in Annúminas, with Elessar and his family.  Here you go, my friend.  Enjoy, and may you have a wonderful birthday!

Drabble - 100 words since I used poetic license for "windsong" *g*

A summer idyll...


Aragorn pulled off his shirt and stretched, a mighty yawn nearly cracking his jaw.  He laid back on the grassy bank, leaving his bare feet dangling in the water.   Eyes shut.  Mind drifting. Watching sunlight and shade dapple the inside of his lids. 

Heard laughter-splashed shrieks of children.  Birds and grasshopper buzz and windsong. 

Drifted, drowsing...

Then a footfall beside him, swishing against the grass.  An arm draped across his chest, a foot touched his.   Her voice velvet soft, “I love Annúminas, my Elessar... but I love you more.” 

She kissed him and he smiled lazily, never opening his eyes.

[livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat  asked for a conversation between Celeborn and Gandalf.  So here 'tis!



My Heart Will Be Glad
Rating:  G

Galadriel was happy enough to play matchmaker but what of Celeborn?  A conversation between two wise old friends that might have taken place at some point between Aragorn and Arwen's midsummer moment upon Cerin Amroth and the events in Lord of the Rings.  A  true drabble.

~~~~

“But is he worthy?”

“More worthy than all others.  And if not, then such discovery will render all of your concerns moot.”

“She is my granddaughter, Gandalf.  And he is a mortal.”

“I recall another such union working out well enough.”

Celeborn’s eyes glinted.  “I am tempted to chop off this young pup’s hand to match.”

Gandalf laughed.  “Let him keep his hand.  He will undoubtedly need it.”

A sigh.  “Galadriel shares your certainty.  And therefore so shall I.”  He raised his glass and smiled.  “The world will be saved, and Arwen will wed, and my heart will be glad.”
