1. Chapter 01 - The Song by RazeNymphette [Reviews - 2] (102 words)
This is a series of drabbles based on the lines from the Hobbit mentioning a fairy wife. I’m not very good at drabbles, so I decided I needed practice. I’ll write one drabble per chapter, because I can’t write ALL of them at once. I hope you enjoy.
