1. Spring by Lyra [Reviews - 3] (236 words)
A note on naming (because this wouldn't be Tolkien fandom if things weren't complicated somehow): In the first segments, the Valar have not yet learned Quenya, so they are using their native Valarin. Naturally this only comes to bear in personal and place names, but I nonetheless apologise for any confusion caused by the weirder-than-usual words...
If any of the 'odd' letters (yogh, chi, and s with caron) cannot be depicted properly, I apologize; they look fine on my screen, so it seems the archive can handle them, but it probably depends on your browser whether you get the correct symbols or some gibberish...

Written for the B2MeM 2012 "Maglor in History 1" prompt, Maglor in the Fourth Age. Not actually featuring Maglor.

8. Sun V by Lyra [Reviews - 2] (444 words)
Written for the B2MeM 2012 "Crossover 1" prompt, Crossover with a mythological story.

The Christian nativity story, to be precise, so tread with care if that's a touchy subject for you.

9. Sun VI by Lyra [Reviews - 2] (589 words)
Reaching the 20th century, yay. Or not yay, because there's a lot of 20th century history that the Valar rather wouldn't have witnessed...

And then, in the distant (?) future...
