I really do intend to write something new - but in the meantime here is a drabble I wrote in 2012...

“Remember Thuringwethil?”

Tindómë knew her history.

“No… the encounter! Although we had spoken of her that day; great leather wings, iron claws..."

Elladan paused, then continued dramatically, “It was a dark and stormy night. I was ahead; I heard a scream! I turned – he was caught, a leathery embrace. He fought, sword slashing…”

“Metal had ripped my skin,” Elrohir said, “the blood was in my eyes…”

“I could not help…” Elladan continued, “for laughing!”

“Laughing?” she echoed.

“Laughing. His foe, his vampire foe, the leather sail-cloth from the nearby wind-mill’s arm!”

She hadn’t known, before, that an elf could blush.
