Experimenting a little bit with visual form here. It works out better on paper than in digital format, I think.

Characters: Sakari & Mika, no pairing
Rating: 0+
Length: 20 lines poetry
Summary: Sakari attempts to be reassuring.
Other: Mikael obviously has a lot of worries and fears about, well, everything related to where he's ended up. Something tells me it'd take more than this to make him feel better about it, though.

Title: Bliss
Fandom: The Silmarillion
Characters/Pairing: Ecthelion/Glorfindel
Rating: 0+
Length: 12 lines
Summary: Stolen attention, stolen moment, stolen kiss.

Title: A nod and her favour

Rating: 0+
Length: 76 lines poetry
Summary: Mari wants to have a word with her new son-in-law.
Other: The Kajaani OCs again. I feel that Mari would have some mixed feelings about Vesa - he definitely wouldn't be an ideal pick, but the reasons for that don't necessarily have to do with Vesa himself. I wanted to explore her eventual (and somewhat grudging) acceptance of him.

Summary: How does Jáhko always manage to drag him into these things?
Other: At the time of this writing, Small Trolls has fewer than 30 pages, but apparently I'm not going to let that stop me from writing some kind of fanwork.
***Elli did a wonderful drawing based on this poem! ;3; You can view it on her twitter over here.
