SSP - Heed No Nightly Noises

"The Barrow-Wight" by John Howe

When I was recently telling my story about the hobbits' adventure with the barrow-wight in The Lord of the Rings, how he was essentially a malevolent ghoul haunting a grave that devoured the soul of anyone who strayed into his domain, her response was an incredulous "Tolkien wrote that?"

He really did, though he didn't tease out the details as much as a fan of all things spooky might prefer. That's why we have fanfic, though. So just in time for Halloween, have a story about Pippin's night trapped by the barrow-wight. Read on, if you dare.

Heed No Nightly Noises (4,725 words; rated Mature)
Featuring Pippin, Merry, a rather twisted Lalia the Great, and an OC Dunedain soldier
Tags: fanfic, tolkien
