cairistiona: (read any good books lately?)
Yes, that was "LOTR", not Captain America (though I'm still just as obsessed with Cap & Bucky).

I ran across a terrific Glorfindel one-shot:

Sweet Silver Bells by PSA
K+
No pairings.

Glorfindel takes a short rest as he rides against the Nine in search of the halflings.


Be sure to leave her a review if you like it. :)
cairistiona: (read any good books lately?)
This is mostly for [livejournal.com profile] nefhiriel** and [livejournal.com profile] imbecamiel, but if you've any interest at all in a really top-notch Steve Rogers and Thor friendship fic, which I kinda am (to me, those two have the same pure hearts beating within their breasts), this one is just .... *flails*  I may have left one of the longest reviews in my life for this one and still didn't manage to convey to the author just how much her story moved me. It's rare for me to a) read a story late into the night because I just had to finish it; and b) actually cry. I did both with this one.

Self From Self
by thegraytigress
Rating: T
Gen, h/c, friendship
Post-Avengers film, but pre-Cap2
Loki returns to Midgard to exact his vengeance on Thor, and in the heat of battle Steve makes the ultimate sacrifice. Now Thor must save the life of his captain while struggling to balance what he is with what he knows he needs.

(**OH... and Nef, remember your "SHIELD BROS/Sharing weapons" comment on Avengers Gen Round 7? This story. THIS STORY.)

She writes LOTR fic as well, one of the titles of which, "Perchance to Dream", tickles a faint familiarity in my brain, but I haven't read them yet (I don't think? Unless I started Perchance to Dream once and never finished?? Or maybe she's revising it and reposting it fresh... or maybe it's just that the title is a well-known Shakespearean phrase), so I'm keeping fingers crossed she handles Tolkien as well as she does Marvel.
cairistiona: (Happy Aragorn)
A wonderful, gentle Ivorwen-centric story featuring a stubborn young chieftain and a lot of humor and poignancy and an adorable image of Dirhael, which is all I'll say because of spoilers. She wrote this for me to read while recovering from my last surgery, but Internet woes kept her from posting it until now.

Do go read it, and leave a review when you do!

Weeding
by EverleighBain
In which the Rangers are shorthanded, Aragorn is a lousy patient, and Ivorwen gets to behave as a grandmother should. Family/Hurt/Comort
Rated: K

She also has it at MPTT here.

Now, shoo... go read and review!! :D
cairistiona: (laughter)
[livejournal.com profile] brennanspeaks gifted me with a very, very funny little fic... thank you, my friend!!

Little Disasters
Aragorn's attempt to impress Arwen goes awry. Halbarad enjoys the result a little too much.
Rated K+

Read it here or here.

Yes, I'm killing time before time to leave, and I found a very pleasant pastime indeed in a collection of drabbles featuring Aragorn in his many guises: 

Fliewatuet's Flimsy Ficlets, by Fliewatuet, here at SoA.  Don't let the title fool you, because these are anything but flimsy!  Each is well written and she captures Aragorn perfectly, as well as supporting characters ranging from a cook at Rivendell to Boromir to Halbarad.  The latest is a new update after a long hiatus... here's hoping she stays out of hiatus!

I unearthed a very nice little fic about Gimli here at ff.net.  Like so many good stories over there that don't center on a modern-day girl falling into Legolas' arms, it's in dire need of nice reviews!

Story: Drive

Author: Melissa Hendrix

Characters: Gimli, Aragorn, Legolas, Merry, and Pippin

Rating: K+

Author's

Note: This story takes place shortly after the Orc attack which
culminated in Boromir's death, Merry and Pippin's capture at the end of
the Fellowship of the Ring, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli setting out
to rescue them. At least in the movie, Gimli seems to be far behind his
companions and extremely worn out during by tracking process. I always
wondered what his drive was to keep going….and so this story was born

Ooh, this is exactly why I still fish through ff.net, because you do find an occasional gem in the midst of the dreck!

"A Great King", by Sandra S. - Greatness has to be achieved and wisdom to be gained. At the start of his great journeys Aragorn visits Mirkwood. And learns a lesson for life.  Rated T, complete.  Aragorn & Thranduil

All I can say is wow.  Wow wow wow.  Aragorn and Thranduil!  Wow!  I'm babbling because it really is that good.

Sandra is a German writer, so there's some grammar/punctuation/spelling issues but they're minor, so don't let those toss you out of the story.  Stick with it because it unfolds beautifully.  It gave me a huge lump in my throat, and that doesn't happen very often.  

It's not long, a one-shot, so no worries it will turn into something stupid in new chapters like some stories *coughTheCowboycough*.  And because it's not long, you can take a break from... whatever... to read it.   So no excuses:  

Go read!!  (And please, leave her a review... there's only one lonely one there besides mine, and I really hope she can be cajoled into writing more Aragorn!)

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

Missing Breakfast by [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat 
Seven Sins - Sloth Challenge.
Author; curiouswombat
Title; Missing Breakfast
Rating; PG
Source: LotR
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. :)

For you Ranger fans like me, I found this little gem tucked away amidst all the girl-falls-to-Middle-earth stuff at ff.net.  Good characterizations and a spooky plot, as befits a Spooky Arda LJ community post:

Guarding the Heedless Folk
Written for the 2008 "Six Days of Spooky Challenge" at the Spooky Arda LiveJournal Community. When a man disappears, the Breefolk reluctantly enlist the aid of an untried ranger. Characters: OC, Halbarad, Aragorn. PG for violence.

There's not many reviews for it at ff.net but maybe she received plenty wherever else it might be posted.  Regardless, it deserves some good reviews.
