Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

Star spire angels
Merry Christmas to all, and best wishes on your way to another year 'round the sun!

I hope the past year has been fruitful, meaningful, and progressive towards your goals. It certainly has been for me a whirlwind, but satisfying.

And in the realm of smaller goals, my family has accomplished one outstanding since 1989: for the first time since grandma died, we'll have her Christmas lumpia - hand-made, because there is no other way - on our table! Woot!

HASA closure

Star spire angels
Thanks to everyone who e-mailed to try to reach me about HASA's imminent closure. I appreciate your thinking of me. HASA had a good run, and I had a lot of fun there for many years, so I'm sorry it's going to close down.

I'm trying to move some stuff over to FFN - not because of any particular preference for it over other sites, but because I already have an account there, and it's a fairly easy upload process. I'm not going to fuss much with stuff.

I've had one or two people ask if they could repost things I've written - that's fine. Anything you want to repost you can repost, and thank you for your help. I appreciate the offer, and I'm sorry I won't be able to really take care of that myself. I don't have a lot of time to deal with online stuff - other priorities come first over fanfic, and I don't want to spend a ton of time currently on this when I could be visiting with people in RL I don't see but occassionally.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas to those celebrating, and a happy new year.

Star spire angels
Title: One White Tree
Author: Dwimordene
Summary: Many the fruits, but only one white tree: there shall be no new world. The story of the Númenorean resistance.
Characters: Elendil and the Faithful; Pharazôn and the King’s Men; original characters.
Rating: T
Warnings: ‘Tis the season when Dwim writes genocidal revisionism again. I don’t have access to my Silm copy at the moment, so I’m relying on memory, here.
Disclaimers: See warnings. Broke. Not Tolkien or related to him – thanks for not suing. One White TreeCollapse )


A/N: “One white tree”: What brought they from the foundered land/over the sundering sea? /Seven stars and seven stones/ and one white tree. – Gandalf, reciting a line of Dúnedain lore in TTT

I love you, Tolkien. I love you for making Númenor so amenable to the industrial revolution and its failures and hopes. That being said, how on earth did the conservative aristocratic faction manage to reinstate a feudal system after that? That was my question while writing this. Thanks to the TW moderators for the prompts – it wouldn’t be Christmas without tragic drabbles at my house.

And I am sorry if some of this is not quite canonically ordered – I didn’t have my Silm copy to hand while writing this, but I hope I’ve managed not to put anything in there that would immediately betray that fact.

Fic: Split Visions by Dwimordene

Star spire angels
Title: Split Visions
Summary:
The Vengeance was a revelation. As Enterprise is being repaired, Kirk and Uhura have a long overdue meeting to discuss exactly what it means for Starfleet and themselves. Some cursing.
Notes: This was so close to finished, I had to. And to those who have commented on stories, lately: thank you! And: I'm sorry, with my new job, I probably won't be online much, or writing fanfiction often, if at all. C'est la vie - it's a job worth doing, even if it cuts into a hobby.
