Summary: I'd love a story to be written where Legolas and Aragorn manage to be injured and captured by slave traders a few days after leaving Imladris despite the fact that they are very skilled warriors. They are taken deep into the south, farther than anyone they know has ever been and upon managing to escape they find a hidden kingdom and a race of elves there different from what legolas and aragorn have ever seen. I'd like these elves to be drow, which are darker skinned elves in dungeons and dragons and a few other games and novels.

Summary: Benjamin Franklin wrote, "Certainty? In this world, nothing is certain but death and taxes." Tolkien tells us lots about death in Middle Earth: now I want to hear about taxes.

Some ideas are hobbits protesting a pipeweed tax, a royal assessor or auditor trying to tax Smaug, the Dunedain dealing with border tariffs, one of the ancient characters trying to figure out depreciations on their land or possessions . . . but those are starters. Any tax-themed story is welcome.

Summary: Playing a game of truth-or-dare, young Boromir and Faramir end up daring each other to go see what’s in that high tower where their father seems to spend so many nights. They discover the palanthir. Spurred on by each other’s teasing remarks and generally intrigued, they look into it together. Well, guess what, it shows them making love to each other – something neither had even thought of before. Of course there is shock and bewilderment, and awkward laughter – but afterwards each finds the images to be permanently stuck in his head…

Summary: Faramir and Eowyn are experimenting with spicing up their intimate life. After some milder things, Faramir dares confess his fantasy of bringing a third party into their marital bed. To his delight and rather strong surprise, his wife is not insulted at all, but greets the idea with such enthusiasm that even promises to arrange everything herself. Imagine the degree Faramir’s surprise reaches when she brings along not another Rohirrim lady, like he had assumed by default that she would – but, as you have guessed, another man. But, well, much as he is bewildered, Faramir cannot call it off, for she had accepted his desire to lie with two women simultaneously – he has to play fair… It can’t be any of their blood relatives, but any other Man – or Elf – is fine.

Summary: It is the end of the third age. The ring has been destroyed. Aragorn sits on the throne of Gondor. Elrond worries over the his sons' decision. Will they sail, or will they choose a mortal path as their sister did?

What Elrond doesn't know is that Elladan and Elrohir have already made their choice. Did so centuries before, in fact, when they met the elf whose faer called to their own.

All those years they were out on so-called 'errantry' they were, in fact, spending time with their beloved husband. Why do they not, then, put their father's mind to rest? Why have they not introduced him to their family?

The problem is... their husband is called Maglor.
