Drabble: Drinks at The Five Armies

Title: Drinks at The Five Armies
Author: Raederle
Word count: 100
Character: Éomer
Rating: G
Work: LOTR, very loosely
Disclaimer: don't own 'em, not for profit
Notes: for the "roaring fire" challenge at [livejournal.com profile] tolkien_weekly, this is set in the [livejournal.com profile] the_five_armies.

"Just go. Stay in your cloak, and you will see."

The King doubted that his brother-in-law would frequent this dingy, decrepit tavern, but he trusted him, so he found a seat close to the fire.

The fire was hypnotic; he blinked and the place was different. Two young lords entered, bragging of their day's deeds, toasting each other.

The King could not take his gaze from one, a Rider of the Rohirrim, laughing with his friend. Éomer never introduced himself to them, but when he left hours later, he was smiling. He understood why Faramir came to this place.

Ficlet: Ripples

I know it's been a while, but this piece popped into my head back when I first read [livejournal.com profile] ribby's Unexpected Guest. I got the wrong end of the stick when I read it, but I liked my end, so I'm subverting her story to my own ends, to some extent. My tavern, my rules.

Disclaimer: These toys are all the Professors, but how we love to play with them.

Summary: Two drinkers notice something odd going on in the Tavern.

Challenge: Tell me a winter's tale...

Cross-posted from my journal -- In answer to a query about challenges, [livejournal.com profile] seleneheart said

"What [livejournal.com profile] shebit and I were thinking is that instead of posting a formal challenge from the mods, that a character could walk into the inn and issue the challenge to the patrons."

So here's a shot at it. This tale has a couple of functions. It is, if they will accept it, a belated birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] aprilkat and an extremely belated birthday present for [livejournal.com profile] ithiliana. Second, it contains, at the end, a challenge to the denizens of the Five Armies.

Beregond's Lucky Hat (drabble)

I didn't know I was going to set this drabble at The Five Armies till I followed Beregond and Pippin through the door. So I thought I might share it with you all.

Fic: Prophetic Dreams

Title: Prophetic Dreams
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hithluin
Rating: G
Characters: Boromir, Faramir
Summary: Boromir and Faramir have dreams about a voice that talks to them, book-canon, the dream that sent Boromir to the Council of Elrond.
Feedback: Yes please, you will be very much adored for it
Disclaimer: Not real, not true
Notes: I'm planning to write a little trilogy out of this but since I haven't written the other 2 sequels yet, I don't want to name the trilogy beforehand, so title subject to change later on. Enjoy!

and for a moment, Boromir felt like he was still 9, and Faramir was still a happy little toddler of 4, and their mother was still alive, and everything was still all right with the world. )

Fic: All Hallows Eve, Part 2 of 2
title: All Hallows Eve
author: undonne
characters: Shadows of Real People (sort of). I know – see ‘warnings’
rating: G

warnings: Involves two characters who bear strong resemblances to 'Real People'. I know that we won’t be doing RP in this community, but the barkeeps said ok this once.

disclaimer: they aren’t really them of course, our players are simply shadows appearing on this peculiar stage. The RPs belong to themselves, and this (alas) never, ever happened. Middle Earth and all its wonders belong to the Professor.

Author’s notes: the two strangers from far away get into trouble and out again

Song/Poem: Drink a Cup

Title: Drink a Cup
Author: SheBit
Disclaimer: All names herein are the property of JR Hartley...sorry, no, JRR Tolkien. Easy mistake.
Summary: I drinking song sung by the soldiers of Gondor after the War of the Ring, but quite possibly based on a much older Gondorian or even Numenorean song - these things tend to get recycled, after all. This is a tavern - it's had a few brawls, but now it needs some good old drinking songs.

Disparity upon Reception

Title: Disparity upon Reception
Author: [livejournal.com profile] hithluin
Rating: G
Summary: Denethor takes Thorongil to task only as a jealous son would, knowing his father's favours lie with another man
Disclaimer: Not mine, all made up
Notes: Ok, so if your mind is anywhere as pervy as mine, I deliberately phrased the summary in a way that doesn't reflect the G rating though I promise it is G. And for those who really haven't read the books, Thorongil was Aragorn's name when he served Ecthelion of Gondor in his younger days before the whole shebang with the Ring.


('I see you seem to have a problem with your laundry,' Denethor delivered the jibe lightly. 'Perhaps I can offer you the use of the lady who does mine. She's awfully good, and awfully helpful if one happens to be a little bored and required her help with _anything_')

warnings: Involves two characters who bear strong resemblances to 'Real People'. I know that we won’t be doing RP in this community, but [livejournal.com profile] shebit gave me permission for just this one story because of who they are.

disclaimer: they aren’t really them of course, our players are simply shadows appearing on this peculiar stage. The RPs belong to themselves, and this (alas) never, ever happened. Middle Earth and all its wonders belong to the Professor.

Summary A night in a tavern serves as an important lesson taught by a younger brother to his older sibling
Disclaimer: All not true, belongs to the Prof.
Notes: Written in a spurt of inspiration from [livejournal.com profile] seleneheart's fic To Absent Friends which is posted in the new community [livejournal.com profile] the_five_armies which I am proud to have joined. Though I was mightily tempted to write about people moping about Boromir too, I shall save that for another time. This fic, in honour of the new community :)

So what do you think of it, big brother? )

Referred to the Silmarillion to update my memories but most of the details taken from my memory which is falliable and therefore, probably wrong. Apologies in advance
