Summary: Summary: A Fourth Age mystery of missing children causes King Elessar to ask the assistance of his friends Legolas and Gimli to investigate the case.

I am so far out of the box on this one, I can’t even see it with a star-seeker. I usually only write Silm-based fic – this is Fourth Age. I usually focus on the Feanorians or at least the Noldorin peoples – this has two beloved characters from Lord of the Rings, but no Noldo. I have never written a mystery, here’s one for all of you. Oh…and I write short – I’m the Queen of Drabbles. This one….well, let’s just say it’s anything BUT short. Welcome to my nightmare 

Summary: As a response to the challenge: “Write a love or sex scene in one sentence. It may contain any pairing you wish,” I offer the following run-on sentence.

I would normally never write this much of a run-on sentence, but the challenge was to write a sex scene in a single sentence so.... Take any two ellons that you want to see together for an evening of sweaty sex and plug them in here. I left names out deliberately so that your favorites could be inserted.
