Snow is in tonight's forecast. Bah! It's too early for snow. Time for a sequel to "Islands of Warmth in a Sea of Cold."

Can those of you who want to be involved DM me and I'll send out a group email. Cheeky and Ziggy - I know I did have your emails, but I doubt I've still got them.

Yay for everyone joining in with the advent calendar (*waves to Cheeky*). It's probably time we got this show on the road.

Hi there, I’m happy to do the advent story again as long as you can put up with my ridiculousness disrupting your attempts at a more somber mood :-)

Great story, i really like it, it has both hope and some angst in it, and the way you portray the characters is great too. Celebrimbor is very beliveable the way you describe him, and i very much like the idea of him being reborn and allowed back into society. Lovely story, and welcome to Faerie :)

What a wonderful piece! I think the sort of drabbles work beautifully and reflect the opening lines of 'broken' although there is nothing rusty about your writing. The closing image of eight brooches is a sign of hope and Ilike it that you leave it empty. Great writing.

Broken is a strange word, made of ribbons and pieced together with rusted metal and savage words. It rings through holy places with an air of pity about it that and Celebrimbor laughs when he hears it spoken upon his return.

That is wonderful - brilliant use of language.

“Why?” Celebrimbor says, voice laced with distaste for the Ainu in front of him, “So I may join you at your forge once again? So that I can create wonders and follow in my grandfather’s footsteps once more?” He laughs then, a bright, wild thing that would have frightened a lesser being.

And this - and I can see and hear Celebrimbor as he says that.

The title is absolutely true - and I love the ending, as it seems..empty for him without his family :(
