"The Hermit", by Himring

B2MeM Challenge: B2MeM 2016: Memories. B2MeM 2015: Song prompt - "Skellig" by huinare: I could see this Loreena McKennit song applying to many characters in the Legendarium. Is this character contented with their simple life of religious/spiritual seclusion? Or lonely? What has caused them to take this path? OCs welcome.
Format: Ficlet (c.900 words)
Genre: Character Study
Rating: PG
Warnings: somewhat cloudy concept of spirituality; hints of mental unease
Characters: Findis, daughter of Finwe and Indis; Finarfin, her brother
Pairings: n/a
Creators' Notes (optional): Begun as a possible sequence for this year's B2MeM; this part finished for Legendarium Ladies April, which has just started (http://legendariumladiesapril.tumblr.com): Poetry Prompt for 2 April: New Year’s Resolutions, by Susan Sontag: Kindness, kindness, kindness. I want to make a New Year’s prayer, not a resolution. I’m praying for courage. Also: Quenya names used (Arafinwe, Finwe-Arafinwe: Finarfin; Feanaro: Feanor)
Summary: Already previously, I had written of Findis choosing the life of a hermit living on the slopes of Taniquetil after the Darkening and her departure from Tirion. But this is a piece from her own POV.

B2MeM Mod


B2MeM 2016 Thank Yous!

We wish to thank everyone who participated in Back to Middle-earth Month this year. There were nearly two hundred fanworks posted here in the community. Whether by creating, reviewing, or both, you helped keep the fandom alive.

We also wish to thank our mod team: indy1776 was our head mod this year as well as a tagger and poster of prompts. dreamflower02 wrote and posted all of the retrospective posts on past B2MeM events. ysilme was both a new mod this year and helped post the prompts. dawn_felagund volunteered to help post the prompts as well as do background work despite working on her thesis. angelica_ramses, huinare, and rhapsodythebard were likewise wonderful help during the planning and running-the-event stages.

We especially would like to thank lignota, who volunteered to help tag for the fifth year in a row!

A final note: B2MeM prompts never expire so feel free to use them to create fanworks throughout the year. This community and our AO3 collections are likewise open year-round for posting of works inspired by the prompts.

We hope you’ve had a wonderful time and hope to see you again next year!

"A bittersweet reunion" by Lyra

B2MeM Challenge: 2012 BINGO Bash (Women of the Silmarillion: "Women who survive"). Also covers the Passport to Middle-earth prompt for March 19/ Rivendell: "Write a story or create a piece of artwork centred on meetings or reunions."

Format: Ficlet

Genre: Drama, if something so short qualifies for any genre at all

Rating: General

Warnings: Allusions to canonical character death

Characters: Galadriel, Finarfin

Pairings: n/a

Creators' Notes (optional):
Very heavily inspired by GoldSeven's painting All the others, gone.

I just dug this out of my WiP folder, polished a few sentences and otherwise posted this as I'd left it, four years ago. Why I didn't post it back then is beyond me. *shrugs*

Having set up camp in Middle-earth to prepare for the War of Wrath, Finarfin has the most important meeting of them all.
