Summary: When Arwen rode out to rescue Frodo, she made a decision that both saved his life and endangered her own. This is the bigger story. Movie-based.

Disclaimer: The rights owned, in this case, by New Line Cinema, Peter Jackson, etc., though original ideas all attributed to Tolkien. I didn’t make any money off of this, nor did I have a particularly enjoyable time writing it.

Posted all LJ fic now to FF.net, so just need 6500 more words to reach half a mil! That's one story.

Of course, I've not written any fic since February.
windemere: (Thorin)
Disclaimer: I’m pretty sure this one is entirely Tolkien’s.

AN: I seem to be fated to write a lot of Dis-fic. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, but honestly, this is a bit much! However, this missing story bugged me.

According to records, when the survivors of Erebor fled to safety it was Thror and Thrain who first led them to the hills in Dunland. At the time there were not many people living in this area and those that were were hardy folk, no doubt because there were so close to the orc-infested regions of the Misty Mountains. It was only after the Battle of Azanulbizar, when Thrain and Thorin returned to Dunland, they led their people to the Ered Luin, seeking to find a home further away from Moria and the death they had witnessed there (specifically Thror’s). They settled in the old abandoned dwarven mines that littered those mountains and finally began to prosper for the first time since they had left Erebor. It was then, supposedly that dwarves started to be born again (Fili, Kili, Gimli, Ori, etc.).

Dis, on the long road west to Ered Luin. )

So, since I got bored of spamming Facebook, I decided to move on over to LJ. Because it's harder to spam.

Three things, in no particular order:

1) Clockwork Princess came out today. My copy is on its way to a friend's house who will deliver it to my parents' house when they get back from Florida and where it will stay until I get there in August 2014. Oh well.

2) So, I'm not even pretending I'm not watching Robinhood anymore, because 11 episodes in, what's the point? I may be watching for the silly more than the pretty now, however. There's a lot of pretty, don't get me wrong, but the silly is much larger. And Guy's attempts to woo Marion are nothing short of hilarious.

3) SAD FIC

Title: Assuming Fatherhood

Disclaimer: Not mine. Not Peter Jackson's. 99% Tolkien's. The other 1% I reserve because this is not my head canon, but it's not anyone else's I know either.

AN: Right, I completely created my own head-canon for this story which I will probably then ignore in future. Still, the tragedy of having Fili and Kili’s father die at this particular time makes the whole story even sadder. And I like sad. Take it as you will.

Summary: Kili spends the first five years of his life convinced Thorin is his father. Fili finds this amusing. Dis finds this sad. Thorin finds it more than a little horrifying.

Disclaimer: Tolkien. Peter Jackson. Need I say more? There are quite a few lines from TH: AUJ in here, which of course belong to Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Peter Jackson and Guillermo del Toro. Lots of dialogue from the movie in this part.

And the last part is here! Well, for this year.

And now, the conclusion )

Ooh, the exciting part!

Here's another short chapter but...the next one is longer! And will be up Thursday morning UST.

This one is a bit shorter, but not as short as the first chapters!

Disclaimer: Twelve years on, it’s still not mine. But more and more Peter Jackson is putting his stamp on it. This one, however, is mostly Tolkien’s.

AN: The Case of the Evolving Fic, by which I mean that it started out as one thing and half way through got suitably depressing. Which is about the time [livejournal.com profile] grav_ity started posting her Dwalin/Dis fic. In other words, I blame her. My fics generally reflect my moods, which generally reflect what I’m reading.
This one is especially vague as to who Dis’ husband is.


Summary: Dis carries on and does not – except in the dark hours of the morning – let herself wonder at what life they might have had, if they had dreamed of things other than gold.

Next part! Sorry this one took a bit longer, but I was out of the city for all of yesterday and therefore without the computer! It's longer thought, so hopefully that makes up for it.

And here be the next part. It's another short one, but I promise all the rest of the chapters will not be short.

Why, oh why, does reading Thorin/Bilbo fic suddenly seem like a good idea? It was a horrid one five days ago. Am I that bored? I'll regret it. I know I will. Also, I am only slightly put out that most of the new LOTR fic on AO3 is Elrond/Lindir. Ever so slightlyThere is something wrong with me.

I'll have you know, I'm not reading it.

But the Thorin/Bilbo? I might have to cave. It beats the Fili/Kili fic hands down, which I will not touch with a ten-foot axe.

Someone, somewhere, was going to do it. You knew that, right? I'm sort of mad it wasn't me!

I don't have a recollection of ever posting this to LJ, and if I did I'm much too lazy to troll through the archives looking for it.

In honour (a rather unfortunate turn of phrase to use) of the 100th Anniversary of the Titanic's sinking and therefore the death of 1500 hundred people, here is a story about one (fictional) person who survived.

It was the greatest ship ever built...

You meet the nicest people in fandom.

A few years ago, when I got into reading (and writing) DW fic, there was an author that I absolutely adored. She just wrote the best Ten/Rose H/C fics around; they were detailed, well researched, and had just the right amount of angst without being heavy on the romance side. So, naturally, I paid attention when she posted things.

A year ago (just about), she began to write Twilight fic. At the time I realised this, I was still in the 'why the hell would I read those books?' phase. Catherine was the person that tipped the scale and made me read them. I realised that if a wonderful writer such as her thought they were worth it, I should make the attempt. Of course, any Twilight fic she's ever written I love ten times more than anything Meyer ever wrote, but that goes without saying. I have enjoyed a whole string of her well written stories - now for Twilight - in the last twelve months.

I am a good little fanfic reader. I like to leave reviews. I used to review all of her DW fics, and when I started to review her Twilight stories, she remembered me, and we got to chating back and forth on FF.net's private message service. And, the biggest surprise of all, when I started to write my own Twilight fics, she not only read them but left the loveliest reviews imaginable! In fact, Catherine has inspired more than one of my stories.

Recently we have discovered we have a great deal more in common. She works as in child psychology and did her PhD on learning disabilities in education. Naturally, my Phd topic interests her and we're having some lovely (max character count used) chats at FF.net, in amongst the reviews to each other's stories! What a wonderful friendship to find online with a person I will never meet, and maybe even never talk to on email, but we make it work. Heaven help the day FF.net disappears*!

*[For multiple reasons]

Grateful for: baking, the 1950s and online friendships. Happy Leap Day! I like this one.

OMG people, the weather today! I didn't sleep at all last night, because of the noise and it's still going. It's absolutely wretched out and I am so glad I don't have to leave my flat today. But it's driving me nuts!

In other news, I've figured out the Twilight fandom. At least insofar as what they like to read and review. As this has only taken me 8 months, I think it's a win. It took me 2 years to figure out Who and I never did figure out LOTR.

As such, I have 29 messages in my inbox this morning.

2011 Fic Round-up

Total Word Count: 176,690, which is beyond ridiculous, consider how the year started out. (Technically, I've written another 6k that has yet to be posted and is ongoing into next year, so I'll roll it into the total for 2012).

Total Number of Stories: 16, which is pretty good for me, consider 4 were multi-chaptered!

Fandoms: Sanctuary (which got me through January), and Twilight.

My favourite story this year: East of Albuquerque. I'm insanely proud of it, considering.

My best story of the year: I think Water to the Sea, but clearly fandom doesn't agree. ;)

Story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: Water to the Sea. Seriously, I was SO PROUD of this fic, and hardly anyone read it.

Most fun story: Honestly, The Sanctuary Network. Which needs updating.

Sexiest story: I got nothing for this. I wrote for two fandoms that don't have much on screen canon hanky panky, so that sort of spoiled my fun. Maybe next year.

Hardest story to write: East of Albuquerque. I've never done that much research for a fic and it was exhausting! Also, writing 37,000 of it by hand was just plain hard.

Looking back, did you write more fic than you thought you would this year, less, or about what you'd predicted?: HAHAHA; I wasn't even doing nano this year!

Did you take any writing risks this year? What did you learn from them?: I wrote for a fandom that, a year ago, I refused to even acknowledge existed. And I wrote multi-chaptered fics and even a sequel, which I have never before attempted to do.

Do you have any goals for the New Year?: Finish the last two stories in the Cardinal Points saga (I can abuse that word too, you know). Finish the original story that I started and didn't nano.
windemere: (Default)
Finally. I did manage to write 2000 words today that aren't awful -

STOP SLAMMING THE DAMN DOORS PEOPLE!!!

- but it was meant to be 3000. I sort of ran out of steam on constructivist theory, which, can you blame me? I can make it up later, or simply add something else to that section. There is research I did for this paper that so far isn't planned to be part of it. I might add it in later. Fixing the damn thing will be December 26-January 1st problem.

Preliminary plan to make a weekend trip down to Gillingham (Kent) in January to spend a few days at a nice B&B, visit a dear friend of my parents, and tour two museums that have been on my To Visit list for a while. Obviously, January is not ideal, but I'll take what I can get. It is, however, cheaper. Then it will be Germany and hockey! [And more museums].

So, the latest one was 13,000 and change. There was also the 6,000 one on the weekend. Everytime I think I know my daily word limit, Twilight surprises me. I think I'm starting to understand why the books are so long. SM probably couldn't stop. For which I can sympathise. Unfortunately, unlike SM, I'm not making money off of this and so would prefer it fill up less of my time. The world has definitely tilted if I write more than I read. It's not right.

The good weekend approacheth, but I have to get through the next 3 days first. Bugger that.

Oh, the Aunt deigned to email again, with a subject line instead of a body message, followed by a one line dig about Kindle. It's heartless, but after I get my Christmas presents from her, I'm not talking to her until Easter. Because I am just that much of a hypocrit. Thank you very much.
