House of Fëanor

A collaborative fiction thing

martial_quill has a long story with the premise 'Maglor is Tom Bombadil' and has somehow managed to make this strange idea oddly compelling.  We were chatting about this, and the idea of writing a story where Maglor and Goldberry get drunk together in the Second Age, and Martial_quill said, would be fun to do that, but I don't fancy writing drunken Maglor talking in verse.  So, I said, why don't I write drunken versifying Maglor, and you write Goldberry (called Neniel in this Second Age version) and we'll set it in this weird universe you have made.

So this was all rather ridiculous from a certain point of view but we ended up with this  :

now let the song begin which contains among many other things, a poem about Maglor stealing honey from bees of which I am rather absurdly proud.  And they do make a weirdly sweet couple, and Martial_quill has put one hell of a lot of effort into Avari worldbuilding, no question.
