In the Hands of the Enemy by Meckinock

Set around Bree before the events of LotR, this rollicking adventure never takes itself too seriously. Believable characterisations, with some well-drawn original characters that won't have anyone calling in the Mary-Sue Exterminators

[Added 16/12/2003; Drama; >50,000; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Aragorn, Gandalf, Halbarad, OCs]

Possessions, The King's Shilling by Altariel

Two very different meetings between Gandalf and Faramir. Excellent characterisations in this pair of vignettes

[Added 09/09/2003; Character Piece; 1000-2500; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Gandalf, Faramir, Denethor]
