Gift of Life by Fileg

Fileg's delightful characterisations sum up the differences and similarities between the two races depicted in this nicely symmetrical vignette

[Added 16/12/2003; Character Piece; 1000-2500; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Meriadoc Brandybuck, Gimli]

Rose Riddle by Stultiloquentia

A multilayered vignette with almost the density of poetry, set in the Fourth Age but with its roots in history. Repays re-reading

[Added 16/12/2003; Drama; 1000-2500; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Celeborn, Meriadoc Brandybuck, Minor]
