bullet Shelter Last Updated: 4/20/2006
I posted this plotbunny on Livejournal, and then couldn’t stop thinking about it: Frodo, Sam, and Pippin recovered at Cormallen from late March to early April; surely the springtime weather in Ithilien wasn't blissfully perfect every day. Perhaps there was a day or two of rain, wind, colder-than-usual air... what was done to ensure that the hobbit heroes were kept warm, dry, and comfortable?

While Frodo struggles to recover lost or unclear memories, many of his companions find themselves making discoveries they did not expect. This story is based in book-verse, with bits of movie-verse interwoven at the author’s discretion. Angst/drama, but (being me) there's enough hobbity lightness to balance things out.
Rating: PG-13 Reviews Status: Complete Chapters: 11 Published: 12/29/2005
bullet What Every Parent Knows Last Updated: 1/12/2006
On Tol Eressëa, Frodo discovers the joys and frustrations of 'parenthood' -- as he learns the loving yet mischievous ways of an ever-growing family of geese. Featuring Frodo, Sam, and Gandalf. Short and fluffy.

Rating: PG Reviews Status: Complete Chapters: 13 Published: 10/5/2005
bullet A Letter from Home Last Updated: 12/10/2005
Here's a teensy tiny Yule ficlet! This is from my "Quarantined" universe, and occurs after the events in "Force of Nature" -- and assumes that Aragorn has now met Bilbo, young Frodo, Merry, Sam, and wee Pip. Love and fluff!
Rating: G Reviews Status: Complete Chapters: 1 Published: 12/2/2005

bullet Force of Nature Last Updated: 9/24/2005
A “Quarantined” sequel: Aragorn finds that he needs assistance from Frodo, young Merry, and Scamp to locate a Ranger lost in the Old Forest.

bullet The Island Last Updated: 4/13/2005
Nine people (two Men, one Dwarf, one wizard, one Elf, and four hobbits) have crash landed on a seemingly deserted -- and possibly mysterious -- island. The Fellowship of the Ring meet, bond, and face danger together in a brand-new setting. This story was inspired by Season One of “Lost”, but no knowledge of the show is required.
Rating: G Reviews Status: Complete Chapters: 13 Published: 12/26/2004
bullet Spellbound Last Updated: 4/7/2005
What are the Barrow-wights? Why did the wight tell Frodo that they were “waiting” for him? What did it plan for the hobbits, and why? How were the hobbits lured up to the Great Barrow? What explains why Frodo was treated differently than the other hobbits, awakened sooner, and found the strength to resist the call of the Ring in such a desperate situation? This story is my own look at the events on the Barrow-downs from the FOTR chapter ‘The Fog on the Barrow-downs’.
Rating: PG-13 Reviews Status: Complete Chapters: 6 Published: 1/31/2005
bullet For Ears to Hear that Can Last Updated: 2/17/2005
