Tolkien quote of the day:

‘Not very expensive as a rule’ – applied to all the gifts. Bilbo was in this as in other ways an exceptional person, and his Party was a riot of generosity even for a wealthy Hobbit. But one of the commonest birthday ceremonies was the giving of a ‘party’ – in the evening of the Day. All those invited were given presents by the host, and expected them, as part of the entertainment (if secondary to the fare provided). But they did not bring presents with them. Shire-folk would have thought that very improper. If the guests had not already given a gift (being one of those required to do so by kinship), it was too late. For other guests it was a thing ‘not done’ – it looked like paying for the party or matching the party-gift, and was most embarrassing.

bullet Upon Amon Sûl by PSW Last Updated: 8/14/2022

bullet Untold Tales of the Mark - The Rewrite by Katzilla Last Updated: 7/6/2022
This is a partly new take on my 80-chapter-epic "Untold Tales of the Mark: The Banishment of Éomer", which was posted here over a decade ago. After having completed its prequel,"A Red Sun rises", last year, I found that I had grown attached to some of Éomer's riders and decided to give them a more active part in the action. So here we go again...buckle up!

bullet Destiny's Child by Mirkwoodmaiden Last Updated: 6/30/2022
Éowyn is an endlessly fascinating character to me. This is her story, to my mind. This story will eventually merge with my story of Faramir, "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they meet. It is her story in that story arc. The first chapter was inspired by Lindelea asking about how Éowyn became a Shieldmaiden.

Here is a song called Of Finrod and Bëor, also called by some, Of Finrod and the Coming of Men, as was still sung in Rivendell in the Third Age of the world. It is but a fragment from the Lay of Felagund, which told the story of Finrod Felagund in full. It was first cast into Sindarin in Imladris by some of the High Elves who dwelt there for a time, and later into Westron.
