New! Bell's Table by elwen of the hidden valley

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

Scenes from life on Bagshot Row in the period from Frodo's arrival to Bilbo's departure.

This is a reworking of a previously published tale.  Some of the chapters remain the same but have switched order, some have been tweaked and some are wholly new.  Just tales from hobbit life in the Shire.  Hobbiton's answer to The Waltons.

How a wizard boxed the Old Took's ears and have him meet my mother, by Belladonna Took.

Gerontius Took, a saucy and irreverent young hobbit, is taken out of the Shire to be taught what a decent life is all about...

 A tribute to Tolkien, revisiting his exercices in style: an altercation on a Shire porch, hobbits, giants, dunedain, goblins, elves, ents, trolls, eagles, a visit to Imladris, skin-changers, an epic story about duty and fate, riddles,… and a ring!

Drabbledom by elwen of the hidden valley

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

I use the strict interpretation of a drabble . . . being a work of exactly 100 words.  Having said that, mine cover everything from the Sil. to ROTK and every emotion from fluff to high angst.  So dip in and read a few, then come back and read a few more.
