Tolkien quote of the day:

'Gandalf the Grey set out with the Company, but he did not pass the borders of this land. Now tell us where he is; for I much desired to speak with him again. But I cannot see him from afar, unless he comes within the fences of Lothlórien: a grey mist is about him, and the ways of his feet and of his mind are hidden from me.'

Galadriel, Lothlorien, FotR

bullet Let Sleeping Dogs Lie by Lindelea Last Updated: 5/19/2014
While in Minas Tirith after the end of the War of the Ring, surely the hobbits were showered with presents from a grateful populace, or at least the people tried to shower them with presents. This is the story of one awkward but lovable gift, and a unique solution to the problem. (Problem fixed! Thank you, Rorrah, for all you do!)

bullet If You Wish Upon a Dwobbit by Soledad Last Updated: 4/20/2014
As mentioned in “The Book of Mazarbul”, Bifur and Óin had always been close. So, why did they never court? Possibly because Bifur’s interest was elsewhere? Don’t let the title mislead you. This is a non-slash, one hundred per cent canon, bookverse story. Well, 99 per cent canon anyway, seeing that Bifur is a bit different here. *g* Features Thorin's entire company - and more.
