How Quickbeam Got His Name by Teasel

Gorgeous drabble that answers the question of the title in a rather unexpected fashion

[Added 28/01/2004; Drama; <1000; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Treebeard, Quickbeam]

Lomendánar (Little Love for the Things of My Love) by Vulgarweed

'He wore soft green moss, and small black snakes about his branches and darting silver fish between his toes. He bent his long locks to trail in the cool water, and all the spirits of the moist places were with him.' An unusual & thoughtful vignette, imbued with a strong sense of melancholy. Beautiful

[Added 20/05/2009; Romance/Erotica; 1000-2500; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Skinbark, Yavanna, Goldberry, Tom Bombadil, Quickbeam]

Old Man Willow by Nath

'It reminded him of the treeless hills towards the sunrise, only much, much stronger.' An unusual, atmospheric take on the One Ring challenge, with a perfect chiller of an ending

[Added 05/09/2012; Drama; 1000-2500; Lord of the Rings; Characters: Old Man Willow, Galadriel, Tom Bombadil, Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee]
