The elf is winning. Not that I mind the elf, I just like Samwise better.

Sooo, in one of those, "that's not the project I should be working on but it isn't it shiny?" moments that occur when you still haven't done the dishes or the laundry, etc. I started to transfer all of my Lord of the Rings drabbles and fixed-length ficlets to AO3. That being not sufficiently distracting, I decided to take advantage of the archives features and arrange them, as much as possible, into chronological order according to Tolkien. In honor of his birthday or something. Besides, I'd already linked a bunch of things chronologically way long ago and it was easy to start that way.

117 drabbles and droubbles, etc. later, I finally reached the end of the stuff I'd already put kind of in order. So I clicked on my "lord of the rings" tab and worked back to figure out how much farther I've got to go.

I'm at skip=175.

Now, I grant you, a good many of those entries aren't drabbles. But even if only half of them are, that's... that's... *headdesk*

And I haven't even decided whether to interfile the longer bits and pieces.

Or what I'm going to do with the AU bits and bobs.

Or...

hmm, the laundry and dishes are looking better all the time!

"I want to be a healer."

Bergil looked at his feet, waiting for the roof to fall, but he couldn't help but be glad he'd finally spoken out. The adults had gone silent, the room so quiet he could hear the splashing of the fountain outside the window, and the bark of the sergeant in the training square below, trying to make the thump of the recruits' feet all fall into the same pattern. All his childhood he had wanted to be in that pattern, but he was not a child any longer, and he knew the cost of war.

She caught Frodo's eye that first Yule, at the bonfire where all the village had gathered to sing songs and watch the long night through. A wide-eyed little one, with bright hair and a dress bedecked with intricate embroidery, who sat up longer than most of the children her age, listening to the stories and songs. She wasn't as grubby as the others, either, which Frodo knew betokened something, although he didn't have words to explain it, not even to himself.

Still, he watched her lean against her father's knee, and it made his heart hurt. Time to find Bilbo.

Maps

The Mayor of Hobbiton knew maps were for planning.

He'd never had a head for maps as a youngster, but putting one foot in front of another had a way of making chicken scratch on parchment come to mean more than a sore head. Elrond and Strider and Frodo and Merry had pored over maps, making plans that had come to naught. Late nights, he would trace out the paths that the Fellowship had really taken. A fingertip here to touch a night of fear; a handspan there to measure a month of misery.

Sam knew maps were for remembering.

But between [livejournal.com profile] shirebound's birthday and [livejournal.com profile] belegcuthalion's birthday I thought to at least give it a try... Think of it as being in the same timeline as "Chosen".

My furnace is not working properly. It's sixty degrees F (15.5C) in my apartment and has been since yesterday morning. Seeing as how this is the week that winter finally decided to show up in Boston, and my windows leak, it's not been the best of mornings. But I'm skipping work to wait for the plumber, and I have DVDs and hot chocolate, so I will survive.

Wrote a drabble for one of [livejournal.com profile] surgicalsteel's characters. It's over here.

Man, I miss writing drabbles. Here's hoping inspiration will nudge me again.

Edited to add the drabble: )

Gacked from [livejournal.com profile] aragorn_reader

Whether you have ever played D&D or not, if you like Lord of the Rings you have got to check out this! *snicker*

(Warning... put the coffee down.)


And edited to add (because I'm awake now...) [livejournal.com profile] belegcuthalion has completed The Keeper of the Jewels! And it's quite wonderful, really. I just reread the whole thing from the beginning. *sigh* It's nice to fall into a story like that.

Belegcuthalion's wonderful Sam-napping is up to chapter 7!

http://belegcuthalion.livejournal.com/101640.html

Go! Read! It's a great chapter, especially for Frodo fans, I'm sure. But oh, oh, oh! Sam and Aragorn are for it now!
