A Story of a Hound by Huinare

[Comments - 10] Printer

Summary:

Concerning the origins and history of Huan.  Humorously-narrated, but with a kernel of Serious Business in there somewhere.  A B2MEM 2012 project.

Full disclosure - this thing is at the rock bottom of my list of priorities (one year later), so I fancy it might not ever be finished.  Ah well.

Story Notes:

Here shall be assembled, as a chronological narrative, my responses to the "First Lines" BINGO card. 

Although the narration and dialogue in this tale are distinctly irreverent and/or humorous, the underlying assertions of Huan’s nature and motives are ones I take seriously (and, in fact, this work was intended, in a roundabout way, to seriously clarify some things for myself pertaining to the character).

The asterisks denote facetious “footnotes;” which are inserted in brackets directly after the germane paragraph, as there are no pages as such to put them at the bottom of.

 

1. Prologue by Huinare [Comments - 2] (235 words)

The author is not obsessed with werewolves, really.

Thurs 1 Mar.  BINGO # I18.  Prompt: “When shall we three meet again / In thunder, lightning, or in rain?”–Shakespeare, Macbeth 1.I (First Lines)

Yes, I put the "three" back into that quote.

2. In which we meet Huan, an unusual fellow by Huinare [Comments - 2] (911 words)

So WTH is Huan anyway?

Mon 5 Mar.  BINGO # O68.  Prompt: “One mid-winter day off the coast of _____, the crew spotted a letter in a bottle with a note in it.” –Junger, The Perfect Storm  (First Lines).

3. Wherein the search for the Children commences by Huinare [Comments - 0] (608 words)

No rambling about Endórë is complete without Iarwain Ben-Adar.

Weds 7 Mar.  BINGO # B10.  Prompt: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.” – Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities (First Lines).

4. Herein is chronicled the Battle of the Powers by Huinare [Comments - 2] (976 words)

From here on out the story sucks less (just saying).

The Battle of the Powers in another canonically sparse incident which I tend to fixate on here in the Huiniverse  (if I might be so bold).


Fri 9 Mar.  BINGO # O65.  Prompt: “The towers of _________ aspired above the morning mist; austere towers of stone and cement and limestone, sturdy as cliffs and delicate as silver rods.” – S. Lewis, Babbit (First Lines).

5. Of the meeting of Huan and Tyelkormo by Huinare [Comments - 3] (807 words)

An historic meeting.
If I ever veer any closer to fluff than this, I want someone to dump me in a tank full of leeches.

Mon 12 Mar.  BINGO # N31.  Prompt: “Ships at a distance have every man’s wish on board.” – Hurston, Their Eyes Were Watching God (First Lines).

6. The debate of Huan and OromŽ by Huinare [Comments - 1] (783 words)

Oromë is not amused.  Huan and Tyelko witness a fateful moment outside the gates of Valimar.

Tues 13 Mar.  BINGO # I21.  Prompt: “Call me _____.” – Melville, Moby Dick. (First Lines).
