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.

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.
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.
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).
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).
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).
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).
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).
