Hi, Sin! My latest short story and the next one were inspired by this rotten winter weather.

Snow is in tomorrow's forecast here. The storm will last through Wednesday afternoon. About 8" of snow is expected. I planned ahead and did my grocery shopping this morning.

This is why I hate winter, Karlmir. I don't suffer arthritis yet, but I get cold to my bones. We're expecting snow next week :/

I've just posted my latest story. Lots of cold weather here; rain, sleet and snow. My arthritis is killing me. How are you people doing?

In my continuing crusade of posting not-spam...

This was a fun snippet! I remember Noggin the Nog well (about the only children's tv I'm allowed to remember now!) and I love your storytelling style. Wonderful tale, too. I can totally imagine this being part of the lore of the Rohirrim.



Author's Response:

I really want to give you an internet hug for being you and not a spambot!  Thank you.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed the Noggin/Sag style of this - it was a bit different but fun to do.

I really enjoy this style of writing! Is the story part of canon ? If it isn't it fits so well with the rohirrim that it should be. Thanks for posting I enjoyed reading x

Author's Response:

Thank you.  It doesn't contradict canon, so is more of a gap-filler.  Neither of the Tolkiens, as fas a i know, published anything about the origin of the Shield Maidens - but then JRRT mentions the women so infrequently that this is not surprising!  So thank you so much for thinking it could be canon.

What a wonderful story! I could see Eowyn sitting in the firelight telling this tale and Lothiriel sitting on her cushions (can't resist that) and seeing that while the men march off to battle it is often the women at home who are responsible for keeping the hearths and fields safe from harm. Eowyin had me cheering on the battle wives.

Author's Response:

Thank you - it was fun to write, playing with the traditional story-telling style. 

I think it might integrate into Cushions - I'm not 100% sure.  As you can tell, from this appearing (and there are a couple of othr B2MeM things either finished or almost finished), I have been writing - and the next chapter of Cushions is almost done, you will be pleased to know!

HUrray for the shieldmaidens and the unexpectedly enlightened Eorlingas! Love this x



Author's Response:

I'm glad you like it - it was fun writing in this style - I definitely could here Noggin the Nog in the background as I wrote!
