So many people actually love those 'epic scores' - more than any-one would have suspected, I think :)

Future World Music - they all do epic tracks. Until fairly recently it was impossible to buy them! I love them; they are tailor-made for Tolkien :)

Of two characters and a seller on Etsy split up the image to make 'His' and 'Hers' iPhone cases and was selling them in her store. It was reported to the artist and it was just terribl

But the artist always gets a portion of the profit. I have seen blantant theft though, like an artist I follow on Tumblr that does exclusively Frozen Fanart and has a very distinctive style had a pic

Refresh the Shoutbox

It is the mark of a good fairy-story, of the higher or more complete kind, that however wild its events, however fantastic or terrible the adventures, it can give to child or man that hears it, when the “turn” comes, a catch of the breath, a beat and lifting of the heart, near to (or indeed accompanied by) tears, as keen as that given by any form of literary art, and having a peculiar quality.
J.R.R. Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories

Welcome to Faerie, an archive for Tolkien fanfiction. We welcome all sorts of stories, poetry and non-fiction writing, regardless of genre, rating or pairing.

Site News

Multiple Uploads

Hello, every-one.

This news item has been up a few times before, but ends up getting buried by others, so:

Could all authors please upload/update no more than two stories twice a week on non-consecutive days. For example, Sunday and Wednesday.

Some people only update once every few weeks or longer, and they deserve that their update (or new story) spend time on the 'Most Recent', which is often the first thing a visitor sees. Please do not flood the front page with stories as it is unfair on other members. Courtesy is key and what we aim for on Faerie.

Please see No 7 on the Rules. Thank-you!

The Closure of HASA

As some of you may know, the long-running Henneth Annun Story Archive will be closing at the end of the year. Please read the full article on HASA here.

This is very sad news. If any-one who reads this knows authors who post at HASA, or who used to and then left the fandom, perhaps you could try to let them know? They may wish to save their stories, even though they are no longer in the Tolkien fandom.

If you have stories and reviews on HASA, please feel free to post them on Faerie, and upload reviews if you wish. Reviews can never be replaced.

This is a good time to be grateful to the owner-admins of sites like HASA, SWG, MPTT, and of course, Faerie, who build these wonderful archives.

Spam Reviews

Hi every-one.
There has been a couple more spam reviews, this time to an anonymous account that I cannot trace back. If you get any of these spam reviews, could you, if you have time, check the name of the spammer. If it is a clickable link, it will go back to the spammers bio page, where it will show how many spam reviews they have posted. If there are a few could you let me know? The last time we got spam-bombed, I kept the spammers bio page open and just kept clicking on their spam reviews and deleting them. I can't do this if the spammer is anonymous, unfortunately, but you can still delete their reviews (or I will if you wish). Many thanks.

Use of Images

Hello all, People have asked about the use of images before, but ages ago, so I thought it should be addressed again, because we have new members coming in.

People like to use images in their stories (including me). But there are a couple of rules that really should be followed for the benefit of every member.

1). Please use images only in the space you control
Story notes, content, chapter notes, or your bio page can all be used. Please don't post images on public space; images load more slowly than text, and can impact on readership and layout.

2. Use of art not your own.
If you use art which is not yours, please link to the artist under the image. This is only fair. Artists spend a lot of time on their work, and we need to acknowledge that and them. I hope it leads to greater views for them, commissions, sales, support etc. If you can't find the source, then try where you can drag a picture to search.

Many thanks. :)
