yet more recs, only the best for my friends

The contrelamontre no-dialog challenge continues to bring up surprising and wonderful stories. I don't seem to be writing any of them, so I'll just rec the ones that I like the best.

gabbyhope wrote a beautiful story about Merry and Pippin after the end of the Third Age, living with their memories of what they experienced. (Minor spoilers for Return of the King -- but if you haven't read that, you are missing out. Go read it now!) Even if you don't usually read FPS, read this: Busca Me.

Back in LOTRiPS, karelian has a lovely VigBean story incorporating the national bird of New Zealand, the Kiwi. Skittish

And in an FPS fandom that never occurred to me before, remindmeofthe wrote a wistful story of Horatio remembering Hamlet and dealing with Fortinbras, Prov'd Most Royal.


Movie news: some glorious high-resolution ROTK publicity photos are out. You can count the links in the chainmail, see the minute details of the lovely costumes, Weta armor and weapons, horses, and actors. I didn't much like the small versions of these photos, but the big detailed ones are fantastic.


In the continuing saga of my climb out of the Slough of Despond, I actually made progress on one of my scariest tasks, updating my informational web site. I have a ton of stuff to do and the sheer amount was holding me back. So making a tiny dent is a good thing. But my hard drive kept posting error messages, so I had to stop and make many backups, and will run disk utilities on it tomorrow. Upcoming scary things: write Perl scripts, write article, start book, re-activate contracts and make some money!

Thanks so much for the pimp and for the recs -- those Hamlet and Merry/Pippin stories are wonderful.

I'm glad you like it -- choosing and writing recs forces me to think more clearly about what I read. And there are so many stories, some will always get lost in the shuffle.

Gulp. The Lego/Aragorn pix
Yet another photo for the "strategically placed file"
Good heavens, Legolas has such a nice firm gtrip on that bow, and Aragorn is already on his knees...
