Er, new here, and if I did something wrong in this post please tell me.

TITLE: My Adventure
AUTHOR: Thimble
SUMMARY: Young Miss Belladonna finds herself an adventure, with Elves, Bandits, Wargs, Goblins, One Wizard, Exploring Underground, and a Journey to the Sea.
RATING: Gen
CHARACTERS: Belladonna Took, Gandalf, OCs, Bungo Baggins, Supporting Cast
CATEGORY: Adventure
WARNINGS/NOTES: More in the style of The Hobbit than Lord of the Rings. There will be verse. I dunno why no-one ever writes about Bilbo's Mum. Canonically, she's awesome enough to impress Gandalf, who's seen a lot.
LENGTH: Eight chapters.
DISCLAIMER: Not mine, making no money.

Thinking on the other various works I've written for women who were anything but wimpy, these came to mind - for those who are inclined to poetry, I hope you enjoy them.

Characters: Eowyn, with Theoden
Summary: A look at Eowyn's courageous stand over her dying kinsman.

Title: Daughter of Kings
Characters: Eowyn, Aragorn, hints of Eomer and Faramir
Summary: The literal war she fought was only an echo of the war in the spirit.

Femininity can be whatever a woman decides it is! I love it when Buffy puts on her pretty prom dress and goes to slay vampires and take names. But sometimes, we make non-standard fashion choices, and sometimes, non-standard means "boys' clothes." Here's a picspam celebrating just a few of those choices.

Eowyn, Mulan, Elizabeth Swann, Natty Gann, Idgie Threadgoode, Mademoiselle Amy Jolly, Annie Hall, Romana II, and Ace McShane )

Out of the Woods

Fandom: Lord of the Rings (movieverse)
Characters: Éowyn, Éomer, Theoden
Rating: all ages
Summary: Even as a young girl, Éowyn didn't mess about.
A/N: Written for halfamoon. This probably stomps all over Tolkien, which is why I set it in the movieverse. 530 words.

( Éowyn thought she saw light up ahead, but refused to let herself hope. )

I'm bringing recs focusing on some of my favourite female characters (mostly femgen, with a dash of het and femslash) from various fandoms. All of these stories were written since the last [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon fangirling fest. Maybe you know most of them already; but maybe there's also one or two you missed out on. Many of these fics were taken from this year's [livejournal.com profile] femgenficathon and the first LJ [livejournal.com profile] galpalficathon, which you should check out too!

Recs for BSG, Doctor Who, Farscape, Gosford Park, HP, Indiana Jones, LOTR, The Matrix, Narnia, Shakespeare, T:TSCC, Vorkosigan Saga & XF under the Cut )

I have so enjoyed the sudden concentration on my flist of awesome female characters over these past few weeks. Thanks to everyone who has posted! I've got three fics to offer, featuring three female characters that (I've always thought) get rather short shrift in their respective canons.

ELEGY
Fandom: Law & Order: Criminal Intent
Summary: in a season three episode called "Stray", reference is made to a police funeral. This is Detective Alex Eames at that funeral and after. Grief, joy, and the beginnings of new life - in more ways than one.  Necessary backstory for those not in this teeny fandom:  when Kathryn Erbe (the actress who plays Alex ) got pregnant in real life,  the producers wrote her pregnancy into the show. The explanation was that Alex (who is single; her husband, also a cop, was killed in the line of duty some time prior to the beginning of the show) was acting as a surrogate for her sister. Interesting, huh? I thought so...which meant, of course, that I had to write about it. ;)

INTERLUDE
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (bookverse)
Summary: Arwen (and later, Aragorn) in Rivendell just before the Council of Elrond in The Fellowship of the Ring. This was the first fic I ever posted publicly, and I think it shows...but I offer it here because it was my attempt to give Arwen a bit more depth and dimension than she's ever allowed to have in the books (or the movies, but that's whole other kettle of fish!).

VICTORY, LATER
Fandom: StarWars (Original Trilogy)

Summary: Missing scene from the end of The Return of the Jedi. When I started, I just wanted to know what happened when Leia explained the whole "Luke is  my brother" thing to Han...but the story turned out to be mostly about Leia confronting the shock of Luke's revelation herself, and figuring out how to move forward in the aftermath of victory. This was written years ago and never posted at the time...but I was inspired by this comm to dust it off and revise it for public consumption.

Feedback is cherished, always!

I am currently writing a short fic to create some new content for this community, but as it isn't quite coming along as it should, I have decided to post links to a few older stories of mine which seem to fit the purpose of [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon.

Two were written in 2006 and 2007, while the others are fairly recent. All of them attempt to flesh out the biographical backstory of major and minor female characters, either in the "Ten Moments in the Life of..." format or as a "Five Things" series of drabbles or vignettes dealing with the themes of childhood and parenthood.

Lord of the Rings (Ioreth): The Roses of Imloth Melui

Lois McMaster Bujold's Vorkosigan Saga (Elena Bothari): Thy Mother's Glass

Doctor Who (Sarah Jane Smith): I have loved the stars too fondly

Battlestar Galactica (Starbuck): Thea Soteira, Thea Apollousa
