Well, I did it, I wrote something. Not a massive achievement in and of itself, but given my lack of nerve/ability to write recently, it is for me.
This is a simple tale based on my reading a couple of people's advent challenges whereby ficlets are posted each day up to Christmas. I thought it was a lovely idea and an excellent opportunity to write something, a little at a time, without getting overwhelmed by it. Can't guarantee it'll be every day, but the plan is to write this in small chapters up to Christmas and have it finished by then. This is one story rather than a series of ficlets, just in itty bitty installments. I'm just letting it take its course, although I have an ending in mind. Muses being what they are, however, it might not be the ending that eventually gets written!
It features, of course, my beloved Maedhros and Fingon and also Maglor, as well as sundry others, possibly. Dunno, am just seeing where this takes me and having fun with it. Call it my gift to all those who I can't afford a pressie for this year.
It was also inspired by the December challenge:
"How did a character first discover his talent for music? Learn to play the harp? What important events in her life--weddings, festivals, first meetings, et cetera--were accompanied by music?"
and is cross-posted in my LJ.
Once Upon A Winter's Gift
Summary: Maedhros and Fingon at last are reborn and planning to marry (marry, I like marry), but Maedhros feels the absence of the brother he lost so very long ago.
Rating: Will vary, this chapter, G.
Warnings: Slash. Two male Elves in love. Also possibly mushiness and some angst.
Author's note: Advent story, sort of, to be posted in installments up to Christmas. Oh AND, I can't get the little accents on the Elvish names on this computer, hence Fingon's and Maglor's names lack their proper little doofreys over the a's.
Disclaimer: Not mine, unfortunately. I tried to play nice.
One more thing. Been a while since I posted anything, so while constructive criticism is fine, please be gentle!( Once Upon A Winter's Gift - Chapter 1 )
