Story Notes:

Note: I'm closing this drabble collection now and starting a new one, before this one gets too unwieldy. I've rearranged the drabbles in approximate chronological order of Middle-earth history. If anyone prefers to read them in the order they were written, the version on AO3 remains in posting order.

#1, 4, 9, and 13 were written for Tolkien Femslash Week Bingo.
