Kenaz's Big Fiction Index

I primarily write in the Tolkien fandom, with forays into other worlds as time and interest allows. As a result, my Tolkien stories are listed first, with other fandoms following in alphabetical order.

Note: Ionnath-Estel (The Sons of Hope) is currently offline for completion and revisions.

Question (potentially for fic)

Yeah, still farting around with the story I started in September and it's going nowhere slowly. Boo. (keiliss, your plot bunny is struggling!!)

But as an intellectual exercise, I'd like you guys to weigh in on this question: Imagine Glorfindel and Ecthelion are having a heated discussion about choice vs destiny.. It's after the Dagor Bragollach, they've returned to Gondolin, Ecthelion is questionining the wisdom of having followed Turgon to Gondolin in the first place, they're both aware that Gondolin's days are numbered since they revealed themselves to the enemy... so who do you think would defend the idea that fate can be altered through action and who would be resigned to the idea that fate is immutable?

I'm currently working with a rather disillusioned Ecthelion... Headcannon for this one follows Sentiment of Steel, though I'm not sure if it's technically a sequel to that story or not, so he's recently watched his father die defending Fingolfin and has also only recently allowed himself to set aside the oath he swore his father to continue the family name because he loves Glorfindel before all others, so my impulse is that Ecthelion would feel at this point that Fate is unassailable, while Glorfindel would support the idea that they can act to change their fate in either large or small ways... but what do you guys think?

I'd love to hear arguments in either direction.






Help for a rusty writer!!

Ok, so, I pulled off another round of Ardor in August/Sultry in September by the seat of my pants... however, I am drafting myself to write a pinch hit for a participant who really went above and beyond this round, and I kind of don't know where to start because I'm so fucking rusty.

So. With that in mind, I'm trying to crowdsource some story either for Glorfindel/Ecthelion or Beleg/Turin. I feel like if I have a little guidance and structure, I can knock this thing out. Ideas?? Please???

ETA:
I've got a details from the specific quest to work in, but they're the set dressing... what I really need is the (@#$*#@$ PLOT!!!

I used to be able to come up with my own plots! Now I can barely remember who Glorfindel is.  Is he the blonde guy? He's blonde, right? And he surfs on his shield? Oh, no wait... that's the other blonde guy. Haldir or something.

I'm joking. But only barely.

Gee, thanks for your support. I feel badly enough about not writing as it is. It’s a nagging void like homesickness, but there aren’t enough hours in a day to get everything done. 😖






OMG!!!

The Fall of Gondolin, 'new' JRR Tolkien book, to be published in 2018


Hi/bye/miss you all/miss writing/second verse same as the first







FanFic100: 100 Tales

100 Tales

December 2005: I claimed this table in FF100 with the intention of writing 100 drabbles or ficlets about Gondolin.

December 2012: SEVEN FRIGGING YEARS LATER years later, I've written...nine.

In an earnest attempt to develop a more regular writing habit, I am going to reinstate this table, but will be eliminating the Gondolin restriction. These prompts will hopefully cover a wide variety of fandoms, or may even include original writing outside of any fandoms.  Here's to hoping there will be more stories, however small, in 2013.
