There’s a meme going around fandom where you post twenty-one first lines from your most recent stories. And because I am nothing if not a lemming…
1. from Shadows of the Past II: Sméagol had half stumbled, half fell into the smial’s entryway, that day everything changed.
[ft. Gollum, OFCs; rated Teen]
2. from Lords of the West: Fingolfin stood on the field of battle and looked out across it, and he nearly wept at the sight.
[ft. Fingolfin, Olwe; rated adult]
3. from The Downfall: Whatever else it was, it had been a child.
