Female and not as young as I used to be... Much of what I write is part of a long on-going series and is centred on the Elves - mainly of Ithilien. Other stories dot around - sometimes more Elves. And I also have a soft spot for the Rohirrim - but have little stuff here about them... yet!

Title: In The Winter Garden by curiouswombat
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 17]
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.
