Rating: Teens (no particular warnings, just a touch of mature themes)

Inspired by Robinka's bio recent bio of Huor and dedicated to her.

Also written for a B2MeM prompt that was my own and based on the following quotation:
""[Rian] was a singer and a maker of songs"

6. A Poet's Fate by Himring [Comments - 0] (99 words)

Dirhavel's first encounter with the story of the Children of Hurin.
He remains haunted by the story and its telling.


Teens, just because of its being CoH, rather than any particular of this piece itself, really.

7. Latecomers by Himring [Comments - 0] (894 words)

The smallest tribe of immigrating Edain, the Haladin, delays before crossing the Blue Mountains into Beleriand and, partly because of that delay, things will go rather differently for them.

Original characters; reference to Beor & Finrod

Rating: somewhere between General and Teens (PG)

One of Haleth's female bodyguards visits her grave, the Ladybarrow (Tur Haretha).

Mild femslash (Teens).
