Summer's Lease by Raksha The Demon

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Tired of posting cranky Eowyn pieces, I decided to post this 600-word vignette, wherein Eowyn samples summer pleasures in early Fourth Age Ithilien.  (possibly inspired by certain 'Betty & Veronica Summer Fun' comics from the 'Archie' group that I read in the 60's, only in reverse, with Middle-earth hunks rather than silly teenaged boys.  And by a Shakespeare quote.)  Rated PG-13 for light sensuality/sexuality...

The Falcon and the Star by Raksha The Demon

Rated PG
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

It is March 15, 3019. After the longest week in his life, Aragorn is called by Gandalf on an errand of mercy. One weary warrior meets another in the Houses of Healing and other, farther places; and their lives will never be the same. Most of the story (but not all) from Aragorn's POV. Some dialogue unavoidably quoted and paraphrased from Return of the King.
