Happy birthday for tomorrow, Gabriel! (I am travelling for work and likely to be stuck on trains, so might not have chance to say it on the day.)

Got it, Nelya - thanks for playing! :) I messaged you about DW as it turned into too long a post for the shout box.

what fun, Narya!I just sent you a prompt by PM. I'm not on dreamwidth. Someone please fill me in on Dreamwidth as I'm not familiar with it. Is it something I should look into?

Hi Cheeky! I did get it, although it sneaked off into my junk mail for some reason. Great prompt, thank you!! :D

Story notes:

A true drabble (100 words in MS Word) written for Tolkien Weekly on LiveJournal for the prompts "snowball" and "ball of the foot"



Lalaith has an idea. She makes a snowball—just a loose fistful of snow—and, rising up on the ball of her feet to take aim, hurls it straight into the bushes. Giggling, she runs forward to find Turin showered in snow.
‘Snowballs, Turin! Come play snowballs!’
But her brother is staring at her with a peculiar expression.
‘Turin! Turin hurt?’
He shakes his head.
‘Turin sad?’
She puts her hand in his. He grasps it, a little tightly, but Lalaith doesn’t protest. Why didn’t he want to play? But he’s looking happier, holding her hand, so it’s all right.

Chapter end notes:

A longer version of this scene forms part of my ficlet "Snowballs", written for Dreamflower for Fandom Stocking 2014 and posted to the AO3, MPTT and SWG archives.

The two versions were written more or less simultaneously.
