Well, I’m not sure, Gabriel, but Fandom Stocking, which I think isn’t running this year (on DW) is similar

Is it where you write little gifts for someone’s ‘stocking’?

Not a problem, Ziggy. And what's a Christmas Stocking exactly? I'd be up for anything really. Anything to keep me writing.:D

I'm thinking there probably aren't enough of us to do the advent Calendar every day, Gabriel- I haven't got capacity to do every other day... maybe a Christmas stocking? Week before Christ

Some people do a round robin each December, Astorey. One person will write a chapter, then someone else write the next, and so on

I completely forgot about the advent calendar! I'm going to have to bow out this year, I'm afraid, because I'm stupidly busy at the moment.

(Used to be known as Winterwitch)


Middle-aged, German, Tolkien lover since I first read the Hobbit at age 10 and LotR soon afterwards, and many times again since then. I've started delving deeper into Tolkien's other works only in 2012, but the Silmarillion has already taken over as my favourite.


I discovered the fascinating world of fanfiction in 2006 and spent some years in the Potterverse, reading, writing and translating fanfic in German and English. In late 2012 I was drawn into the Tolkienverse which became my main fandom, and also added podficcing to my fannish activities.


Tolkien's elves fascinated me right from the start, from 1st to 4th age, and I am a bit obsessed with/have a very soft spot for Elrond, his family and friends.
