bullet TO REMEMBER BY Last Updated: 4/4/2013
An argument and a string of interesting events bring about a realisation for Frodo. This is Larner's "prize story" for the "Child of Iluvatar" challenge; she asked for a story in which Frodo argues with Aragorn. Complete at very long last!

bullet Call of the Dream Last Updated: 5/17/2008
A poem inspired by "The Sea Bell." I admit to having borrowed a good deal of the rhyming scheme. What other dreams haunted Frodo's sleep?

bullet A Change in the Weather Last Updated: 12/22/2007
An innocent walking trip goes very wrong when the weather turns foul. Frodo is 45, Sam 33, Merry 31, and Pippin 23.

bullet RENEWAL Last Updated: 2/15/2007
This is for Larner, Elanor Silmarien, Linda Hoyland, and all the others who enjoy "To Remember By" so much. A canon gap-filler beginning with Frodo's and Sam's rescue and ending...I'm not sure where. Some of that will depend on what you, my readers and reviewers, want. :) Disclaimer: I am not a medical professional; methods of healing used in this story should not be tried at home.

bullet A GARDENER'S TALE Last Updated: 1/7/2007
The time from the beginning of that beautiful, unbreakable friendship until shortly after Frodo's departure for the Undying Lands, as seen through the eyes of Samwise Gamgee. I apologize for any confusion here, but there seems to have been a mistake; Chapter 1 was skipped altogether.

bullet Just Like Old Times Last Updated: 11/29/2006
The Ring War has very recently come to an end. But in an effort to make Frodo laugh, Merry and Pippin start another war. For Harrowcat and others who love fluff! :)

bullet A GIFT GIVEN IN SILENCE Last Updated: 11/20/2006
The widow Dahlia Sandybanks and her family are in desperate need, but all are mystified when help comes from an unknown source. Who is their generous benefactor, and how can they thank him? This will be a short story, with very short chapters. For one who did me a great favour and honour.

Merry remembers his beloved cousin and receives some comfort from his mother. For Marigold's challenge 32! Replies to the lovely comments I received from those in the lj community are at the end of the story. Thanks so much, all of you!

A "hello again" piece; I feel as if I've been out of the action for ever! Sam reflects on homecoming and is reminded of one reason why he persevered.

bullet A SPECIAL KIND OF BEAUTY Last Updated: 6/9/2006
Marigold Gamgee begins to see and understand what sets Bilbo and the Travellers apart from so many Hobbits in the Shire. I'm going away for two months and won't be able to post while I'm gone, so this is my temporary farewell to you all. I do hope it's not too terribly sad, but I'm afraid I've been in a mood for nothing but angst lately. :)

bullet TONICS GONE WRONG Last Updated: 6/8/2006
Frodo needs assistance and is not willing to admit it, and Aragorn tries to help. Unfortunately, it leads to disaster. Warning: this was conceived in the middle of the night by two laughter-drunk Hobbits. :) Co-written with Frodo Baggins. Now complete!

A not-so-peaceful night at Bag End. Lots of angst, and Hobbit-love. :)

bullet MELIMA'S TALE Last Updated: 5/2/2006
An odd companion piece to "To Remember By." The tale of Melima, the doll who belonged to the dying Lindariel. We authors really must be wary, you know; Harrowcat gave one little word of encouragement, and the strangest-looking bunny I've ever seen came bounding out from under the bed, latched onto me and now has begun dragging me right along with it. :)

bullet LULLABY Last Updated: 4/7/2006
The simple things in life are often overlooked, and yet they can affect us in profound ways. Something as simple and commonplace as a lullaby can stir old, half-forgotten memories and bring tears to the eyes. Three separate stories, about the three who destroyed the Ring. I *think* this is complete now.

Companion piece to Frodo Baggins's "The THirteenth of March"-hope you don't mind, mellon nin. Sam's unsent letter, written on that day.

bullet ROSIE GAMGEE, HEALER Last Updated: 3/13/2006
*movie-verse* For the anniversary of March 13. Sam is away on forestry business, and Rosie must care for Frodo through the worst of his illness. Some of you will recognise this from "The Last Days" (recently removed) but I have made a few changes...and I really let the angst bunny run free this time-it wouldn't be denied.

bullet AND NOW TO BED Last Updated: 2/16/2006
Frodo Baggins lost his parents at a young age and lived as an orphan in Brandy Hall for nine years before being adopted by Bilbo. He was the Ring-bearer, the saviour of Middle-earth. But all he ever wanted was some peace. This series of little ficlets is written to give him just that. Ranging from pre-quest wee Frodo to post-quest in Tol Eressea, they all tell of Frodo receiving tlc and much deserved rest at various times and from various individuals. Hope you enjoy, and please r&r! :-)

bullet CHILD OF ILUVATAR Last Updated: 2/3/2006
Pre-quest. Frodo receives some very unexpected comfort shortly before leaving the Shire. [Challenge! The first one who can tell me how Frodo was able to hear the song sung, and the deeper meaning behind it, wins a ficlet from me. Be cautious-this might be tricky. All right! We have a winner!]

bullet A PROMISE AND A GIFT Last Updated: 12/29/2005
It's Frodo's first Yule back in the Shire after the quest (spent with the Cottons), and he has no idea what to give Sam. He comes up with something, but an accident in the making of it leads to a terrible misunderstanding. It all started with an innocent prank... Please review! This is the most twisted-up plot-line I've ever tried in fanfic, and I hope it makes sense to someone other than myself! :-) And happy Yule, everyone!

bullet OF UMBRELLAS Last Updated: 12/18/2005
A bit of post-quest fun in Gondor, with a pinch of hobbit healing and a grain of angst. It all began when a certain Baggins tried to do something that perhaps he shouldn't have, and two mischievous younger cousins tried to help...

bullet THE KINDEST CHOICE Last Updated: 11/16/2005
A letter written from Frodo to Sam the night before they leave for the Havens. Kind of a companion piece to "The Strength to Go On." Antane liked it so much that I decided to write more. Rated just to be sure...

bullet THE STRENGTH TO GO ON Last Updated: 11/14/2005
This is to tide everyone over till the next chapter of The Last Days is up. I know a couple of my dear readers were perhaps a bit frustrated with the long wait for chapter four, so the least I can do is write short stories till I have the next one ready. :-) How did Frodo make up his mind to accept Arwen's offer? Why could he not stay in the Shire? What did the Ring really do to him? Warning: this is very, very angsty, hence the PG rating instead of my usual G. Don't say I didn't warn you!

bullet WHAT IS IT TRULY ABOUT? Last Updated: 10/29/2005
This is not a story, but a short essay, written according to the inspiration of the minute. I was reading over what I have written of "The Last Days" and trying to overcome writer's block, and my mind kept wandering to other stories of the love between Frodo and Sam. And before I knew it, out comes this essay! But if you want something more in-depth and with a lot more wisdom, I recommend Antane's "Lessons in Life Taught by Hobbits." In my oppinion it's much better than my scribblings, but I hop

bullet ERU BLESS THEM Last Updated: 10/7/2005
While convalescing in Gondor, trouble comes upon the Ring-bearers again. Sam gets a very minor case of the sniffles, and Frodo plays the part of healer-with flying colours. :-) Antane really deserves credit for this, as the plot bunny and most of the ideas for the story came from her. Warning! Fluff! Lots and lots of it! Plenty of gentle humour and joy and love, very little angst. Enjoy!

For the Oct. 6 anniversary. Frodo draws comfort from Sam's reassureance. Very short and fast-paced, unlike my usual work. :-)

bullet WHEN THE TIDES OF TIME CEASE TO FLOW Last Updated: 9/24/2005
This is a gift to Antane, in honour of the twenty-second. It was actually supposed to be posted yesterday, but I didn't have time. Frodo goes outside to get some fresh air and remembers sweet moments in his life.

bullet WITH LOVE, FROM MOTHER Last Updated: 9/8/2005
This is written as a letter from Primula's POV, as if she were watching over Frodo from afar during and after the quest. It tried to be a drabble, it really did! It just couldn't stop! :-) It's a little vague, with lots of angst.
