I plan to post the next update to "More Things in Heaven and Earth" on about the 24th. I need to do some research and the ever-important timeline development. *rubs hands together gleefully*

Lord Branwyn and I hauled the duvets and flannel sheets out of storage today, so we are now officially ready for winter. We are celebrating with hot chocolate spiked with rum.

Part 1 )
lady_branwyn: (dahlia)
While doing research for my long-neglected fic about the Tolkien brothers during World War 1, I stumbled across a book called Defiant Gardens about gardens planted by soldiers on the front lines and in prison camps. The website has photos of well-tended vegetable plots next to dugouts on the Western Front. The author claims that not only did the gardens serve the practical purpose of providing fresh produce, they also provided respite from the horrors of war.

The website also includes articles about a clandestine garden created by prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. These particular prisoners were men who were considered cooperative--some had been cleared of any terrorism charges--and were (are) kept in relative freedom, being allowed to eat together and to go outside for hours each day. Requests for a garden were refused, so the prisoners were left to their own resources, scavanging seeds from their meals and improvising digging tools. They grew melons, peppers, and garlic and were tending a two-inch high lemon tree (though it wasn't doing well). Happily, the authorities eventually were persuaded to provide proper gardening tools and plants.

(I can't begin to describe how ashamed I feel that someone could be locked up for years without trial by my country. But that is another journal entry...)

Time for some shameless self-promotion. :)
The following are eligible for nomination. I wasn't planning to publish a list, but I am overwhelmed and astounded by how much I wrote over the last year. Very prolific for me.

The Deserter's Just Deserts
When a deserter from the army of Rohan is captured in Ithilien, Faramir finds that his wife is strangely troubled by the Rider's plight.

The Hands of the King
"The Pyre of Denethor" with a different twist. Alternate universe, inspired by a visit to a huge exhibit of medieval reliquaries and relics this afternoon.

Beruthiel's Kittens
During the Siege of Minas Tirith, the healers are not the only ones tending to the wounded. OCs and unconscious Faramir.

Guarding the Heedless Folk
Written for the 2008 "Six Days of Spooky Challenge" at the Spooky_Arda LiveJournal Community. When a man disappears, the Breefolk reluctantly enlist the aid of an untried ranger. OCs, Halbarad, Aragorn. PG for violence.

The Robin's Tale
How the least of Lord Denethor's servants came to his defense. Written for the "White Tree" challenge at the LiveJournal lotr_community. Many thanks to just_ann_now for beta-reading.
