I also saw a girl wearing a beautiful Ecthelion of the Fountain costume she had made, I knew EXACTLY who she was but for the life of me I could not think of it at right that moment, naturally.

But I spent all of today geeking out and being a shameless fangirl at one of the biggest Cons in North America so you hard to have fun!

It's a long weekend in Canada! We don't typically share our long weekends and our Thanksgiving is about a month earlier, lol. It's not a long weekend for me, though, I am working it

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.

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. :)

The Fandom Snowflake Challenge

Come and join The Fandom Snowflake Challenge.

'Every day for the first 15 days of January, we're going to post a fannish challenge. It could be something as simple as reccing fanworks to talking about what you love about fandom. Follow the instructions to complete the challenge. Sometimes you'll be asked to post to your own journal and drop a link in the challenge post. Sometimes you'll just need to say "I did it!" in the comments of the challenge post.

Only do the challenges you're comfortable with. No one is keeping track, no one is going to give you grief if you don't complete a particular challenge. The point is to stretch your boundaries, but not at the expense of stressing you out...And even though the challenge is being hosted on DW, please feel free to comment anonymously and signing your name if you don't have a DW account, or signing in with OpenID, which let's you use your LJ (and other platform) credentials to comment. We'd love for everyone to participate regardless of what platform you use - DW or LJ or Tumblr or Twitter or dA or Mibba or or archives or mailing lists or old-school BBS.
