until the end, still driving herself, living independently, going to choir practice and her church groups. It was sad to lose her, of course, but TBH it sounds like a good way to go.

Title: Of Lapwings, Hares and Speckled Eggs by Narya
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 4]
Summary: The Ambarussa play a trick on their younger cousin and unwittingly create a springtime legend. An Easter-themed one-shot featuring the House of Finwë - plus a few guest stars.

For Gabriel, who requested more fic about happy Finwëions. This isn't entirely happy (sorry) but it has its moments, and I think at the very least it can be described as hopeful. Enjoy.

Title: When Everything Stopped Making Sense by Ndil
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 58]
Summary:

A ring can represent practically anything. Undying love, a silent promise, real friendship, commitment, but also nobility, worship or faith. There are rings that symbolize dependence, enslavement, eternity, and apparently there is one that stands for all that’s evil in this world. But let’s not forget a ring is nothing more than a piece of metal that fits nicely around a finger. It doesn’t even have to be pretty.

So don’t ask me why I ended up risking my life, going on this quest to destroy one. I mean, you can’t really blame me for getting caught up in things I don’t even believe in, right?

This is a tenth walker fic and English is my second language. It’s possible you’ll hate this story, but don’t forget you’re not obliged to do so. And seriously, I really like readers and absolutely love reviewers.
