I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

The Returnverse Stories. by curiouswombat
[ - ]
Summary:

The original story 'Return of The Key' starts at the end of the Ring War, and ends with a brief scene after Legolas and Gimli, and others, have arrived in Valinor.

The other stories in the series were written as I began to fill in some of those long gaps between the two main parts of the story, and then the time period covered in the epilogue.

rn

Now, early 2014, there are also stories set in Valinor right up to, and past, the last line of 'Return of The Key'...

Title: Return of The Key by curiouswombat
Rated: Teen [Reviews - 72]
Summary:

The ancient mystical force of The Key finds its way back to its home dimension - unfortunately still in a human body, and suffocating under a pile of bodies in Middle Earth.

While Dawn comes to terms with her new surroundings, and the existence of elves, her sister is trying to get her back...

This is NOT a Tenth Walker fic, and NOT a Legomance. Some knowledge of Buffy the Vampire Slayer might be useful for this first story - but not essential.

Title: In The Winter Garden by curiouswombat
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 16]
Summary:

Something very strange is happening in Éowyn's garden. Could Tindómë, or Haldirin, be the key to the mystery?
In the heat of the Ithilien summer Éowyn is finding life quiet with her own family all away from home. But things are not really quite as calm and tranquil as she thinks they are. Nor, necessarily, quite so warm and summery.
A Returnverse story originally written as a Plot Without Porn challenge on Live Journal, and inspired by a photo which you will find in the first chapter.
