The Flame of Swords by Zdenka

Author: Zdenka
Title: The Flame of Swords
Rating: PG
Theme: Nostalgia
Elements: belong(ed)
Author's Notes: In The Lord of the Rings, Glamdring is described as the “mate” of Orcrist, implying that they were made together. But if one sword was Turgon’s, who would have been honored with the other? And since Orcrist was a “famous blade,” why would Elrond have been unable--or perhaps unwilling--to name its owner?

Title from a line in The Lays of Beleriand. Warning for foreshadowed character death and excessive footnotes.

Summary: Glorfindel knows more of Orcrist's history than he wishes to tell.

November Challenge: Nostalgia - As a Father

Author: ignoblebard
Title: As a Father
Genre: Gen, Double Drabble
Prompt: Reminisce

Written for the November Challenge: Nostalgia

As the evening shadows deepened, Merry turned to the cheery warmth of his fire. He lit a pipe and shuffled through the latest pages of his book Old Words and Names of the Shire. Perusing his notations on the similarities between the Rohan and Shire languages, he began to reminisce about his brief days as a king’s squire - before the great battle, before he rode with sturdy Dernhelm who, before his dimming eyes upon the Pelennor, transformed into a shield maiden of Rohan. Before the grief of war laid its stern hand upon him, changing him forever.

He saw Théoden, old but hale in bearing, speaking so graciously to a little hobbit who was naught but baggage on the road to Edoras. Merry smiled to remember how bold he had been, drawing his sword and offering his service to the Rohan king, who accepted him gladly. Even now his heart swelled with love and pride to recall the king’s blessing as he knelt before him.

“You shall be as a father to me,” he had said.

“For a time,” Théoden answered.

Not for a time, Théoden King, Merry thought, a tear rolling down his cheek, not only for a time.
