In other news, it's back to Middle-earth month, ABC2 is showing the Ninth Doctor Who series again, and the FOME barbeque brought me to unheard-of levels of geekery yesterday, but they like Yugioh: TAB and xkcd so it's all good. And we're going to the guide dog open day to see puppies!

The next post will come to you from the futuuuuuuure! until then, farewell.
Here's a drabble-and-a-half I wrote a couple of weeks ago, now posted for B2MEM. If you're not part of [profile] fanfic_realm, you can read it here at my account.

I seem to be writing a lot of drabbles lately. I like them because it's a challenge to fit ideas and development into a short space, but sometimes they turn out as drabbles unintentionally. Fics seem longer when they're handwritten. But I'll continue my theme of spamming you with links:

Unfinished Drabbles by Wild Iris. I recommend number 4 (Húrin Thalion), number 8 (Legolas at Aglarond) and number 13 (Thranduil).

Collected Drabbles by A. Meril. Number three is Boromir and Faramir fluff, number 5 is from the POV of the Teleri, the seemingly forgotten Elvish kindred, and number 14 is ...more Boromir and Faramir fluff. It's [profile] b2wm's fault, really.

And finally, Kielle wrote a multitude of LOTR drabbles and Ainur drabbles.
"Miss the golden days of the Lord of the Rings fandom? Get homesick for Middle-Earth?
Then this is for you!

You don't need to sign up anywhere to participate. But if you see this on your friends-page and like the idea, please post this text to your LJ to spread the word.

How to participate:

1. Pick a day of the week (or more than one) on which you resolve to always post something LotR-related in March, and let your friends-list know.

2. Go back and read your favourite chapters from the book, or watch the movies again. Let the beauty of LotR inspire you. And then, share the love.

3. Start your subject line with (B2MEM) when you post, and use a "b2mem" tag. This'll make it easy to spot your B2MEM-entries.

No matter if you just ramble about your undying love for LotR, picspam us, post wallpapers, icons, or write fan fic / create fan art, the plan is to get as many LotR-related entries on our friends-pages as possible throughout March.

Sounds good? We've been there, let's go back again!"

If you were wondering what b2mem is, now you know. I heard about it last year, but I was still in the clutches of the IB monster and thus couldn't participate. I think I'll post on weekends, although depending on the uni workload (alright, stop laughing...) I might be posting more.

Anyhow, here is pluggage for Melian fic. She's the featured character on [community profile] silwritersguild, I made icons of her a couple of weeks ago, and she needs more fic written about her.*

Melian fics:

Songstress - a drabble by Kielle

The Last Temptation by Maeve Riannon, a powerful 'what-if?' ficlet.

Spiderwebs by helga3 - an interesting perception of Melian (and no, it's not Melian/Ungoliant slash... although there is a Melian/Ungoliant slashfic on

Handmaiden of Lorien by Marnie, a bittersweet piece about Melian's relationship with Elu Thingol.

Leithian by erunyauve, more bittersweetness.

*I have a Melian bunny. It came from the Library of Moria's random slash generator of all places, and between the Bilbo/Gwaihir and Pippin/Nazgul pairings, it came up with Melian/Arien, and I went 'hang on, that might actually work...' and now it's brewing. Beware.

I don't know what I'll plug next. Any suggestions?
