Which is apparently the first day of every month now? Oh hell yes!

Long Hard Day

(Sherlock; Sherlock/Mary/John, rated M, 221B format)

John and Mary have apparently not mastered all the nuances of Sherlock's texting style.


Every Grain Has a Value

(Lord of the Rings; Frodo/Rosie/Sam, rated M, 200-word double drabble)

Frodo's scars find some healing.



Going to try to add something new to this every month.

Title: The Terror of Rushy Hollow
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings
author: [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed
Rating: PG
Pairing: None really - Hobbit OC-centric
Summary:One dark autumn night in the Shire, a rejected suitor leaves a harvest festival with a heavy heart - and a head swimming with eerie stories. Particularly of a new terror never seen in the Shire before: the ghastly spectre the locals call the Faceless Horseman.

Those familiar with The Red Book of Westmarch will recognise this as a rustic, romanticised, and garbled hobbit-centric account of certain alarming events that occurred in the Shire in the autumn of TA 3018, on the eve of the War of the Ring.

Those familiar with more recent literature will note that this story bears such a strong resemblance to the plot of Washington Irving's story "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow," one realises Mr Irving must have had some passing acquaintance with Middle-earth folklore.

Sauron by masterhalfling (facial model is Benedict Cumberbatch, and blame Peter Jackson if you don't like that, not the artist)


Whoa. That's a really compelling Second Age Sauron - with Ring, still with fair form ability, looking very much like a Maia going bad. (Not to make it all about me, but this is retroactively creeping into my headcanon for Sauron's human-ish form in The Ring and the Crown. He's lost his Master, and now he's becoming more unhinged as he becomes more ruthless in taking power over others in a vain attempt to replace what he's lost.)

Who is he manipulating through that palantír in the picture? I want to know! It's compelling!

The Corsair of Carcosa
For: [livejournal.com profile] hoshi_ryo
From: [livejournal.com profile] vulgarweed
Rating: PG
Characters: Crowley, Aziraphale, Hastur, The Them, Randolph Carter, Dream, Cassilda the Cat
Fandoms: Good Omens/The King in Yellow/The Cthulhu Mythos/Sandman

Summary: Forbidden literature is forbidden because stories can change the world. For good and for ill.
Prompt: “Aziraphale gets his hands on a rare copy of the play The King in Yellow. Reading and its consequences ensue.”

Author's Notes: “The King in Yellow” doesn't really exist – it's a sinister play that's alluded to and plays a role in the events of four Robert W. Chambers short stories: The Repairer of Reputations, The Yellow Sign, The Mask, and In the Court of the Dragon. H.P. Lovecraft was an admirer of Chambers who alluded to these stories in his own, and the KIY cycle has been adopted pretty thoroughly into the Cthulhu Mythos (by August Derleth more than HPL himself). So I incorporated a lot of elements from Lovecraft stories, particularly “The Cats of Ulthar” and “The Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath,” to the point where it wound up being pretty much a crossover. Sandman, also – all things that take place in the Dreaming come under the rule of Morpheus. (There are also allusions to a couple other Neil Gaiman works, and shoutouts to several other writers as well.) I hope it all holds up as a story despite this patchwork.

I also want to rave and gush about the story that was written for me!

We Must Bear Witness, by [livejournal.com profile] hsavinien

I've wanted a Lord of the Rings/Good Omens crossover for years, and they are not easy to come by. Thought of writing one myself, but haven't gotten around to it yet. (Crowley and Aziraphale would be snarky Maiar, of course). And [livejournal.com profile] hsavinien wrote this one, and took it in such a fantastic direction. I had asked for a story where Aziraphale and Crowley find themselves on different sides of an historical conflict (real or fictional history), and here they are, as Istari among the Gondorians and the Haradrim, respectively, during the Battle of the Pelennor Fields. I love everything about this. I love the fact that they're genderswapped/woman-shaped. I love the insight into both cultures. I love their relationship, and the way it unfolds. I love the depth of the Tolkien lore in play here. I love everything. Read it and give it love!
