I Will Not Say the Day Is Done

Which I suppose in some ways is a rather appropriate title since I have not been posting much on LJ since Brythen died.   It is a big thing to adapt to, that. It needs some time.

But mostly the title is this thing I wrote.  It's easier to write fiction.

It is another Return to Aman post-LOTR thing.  I wrote it mostly because Return to Aman had 12 stories, and obviously it would be Very Wrong to finish a Tolkien series on the 13th story, so I decided to send Finrod on holiday with the hobbits.  I don't know where the other bits came from, the characters seem to be mostly making their own decisions by this time.  I feel faintly guilty that I wrote this as a series and it's ended up almost like chapters of one story. I didn't know it was going to do that!  Also people commented to say it was philosophical, which was not my intent and confirms my suspicion that the whole thing has got out of hand.

I Will Not Say the Day Is Done
In which Maglor stays up all night, has breakfast with Elrohir and tests the truth of the Doom of the Noldor, Elrohir gives his opinion of the Shibboleth of Fëanor, Finrod Felagund goes on a walking holiday with hobbits in Eldamar and discusses Moria and his dissatisfaction with the Valar, Sam sees Elf-magic, and Elrond visits Nerdanel to discuss Silmarils.

  • TRSB reveals happened...

    and my two stories were: Swan-feather Song Tuor and Idril sailed away into the West, and were lost. But how did that happen, and what came next?…

  • TRSB completed!

    The Tuor and Idril story is done, and after much prodding and poking, seems a decent shape. The Tropical Yavanna story came together really…

  • TRSB #1 ... sort of finished

    This story was about Tuor & Idril. I hadn't written them before, and I'm really not convinced I've done a good job. The story seems over-long…
