I would just choose whichever you want then, Gabriel. It’s what I tend to do when there is no clear answer

I have tried to look for it on other sites, but they have given two time frames which is a little confusing. One in the S.A. the other in the T.A.

I have a little question to ask. totally off the subject. Does anyone know when Bree was built? Was it up and running when Gil galad was king of the Noldor and Celebrimbor was in Eregion?

Title: In the Darkness of the Moon by Erulisse

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.
