Favorite Five Meme

I have been tagged by randy_o to name the favorite five stories I have written so far. As I have said before, there is a little problem, since of the favorite five stories I *have* written, a few are original stories which are both in German and unpublished, as of yet. Others are not LOTR fanfiction, but belong to Highlander fandom. Still, I shall try to answer the request as best as I can. :)



1) Murder The Dawn
What can I say? I love Darkfic. And this very grim little spin-off of my main story is maybe even more powerful and intense than the main story, at times.

2) Mael-Gûl
My main story still is my second favorite and will be told, if I can help it, however long it takes, since I simply need to tell that story to the end.

3) Lokis Lied
Not exactly a story, but a Poem, and in German, to boot; nevertheless I consider it still among the best things I have ever written. The German version, not the clumsy English translation attempt, that is.

4) Silent Explanation
This is a Highlander story, or rather, a poem, giving the thoughts of my favorite Highlander character in one of the most famous and intense scenes of the show. It is the very first piece of fanfiction I have ever written, and I still consider it to be among the best.

5) Elessar's Heir
What can I say? This AU version may never happen now, in any universe, at least not very likely; but I still have a fondness for this particular story! LOL!

Mind, though, that these are only those of my stories and poems which are yet published. Would I add some of those which are not yet available of the Web, among the chief favorites would certainly be two or three of the original stories I created together with my very dear friend Werdrachin; but I have yet to decide if I will ever publish some of those.



I come late to this meme, so please forgive me if those five people I tag have already done this; if so, please ignore! But in any case, I hereby tag: namarie120, pecos, calenharn, surreysmum, and vamp_ress. Enjoy!

On the contrary!
No, no, no, I was delighted! As you have probably seen, since it pointed me into the direction of your story "Lather", which I had not read before, and gave me the chance to comment on it. :)

Anyway, I am not offended at all. I am ust sad that - if you still decide to pass this meme up - others will not have the cahnce to see and find some of your writings, because indeed you write very well.

Cheers! -- Aislynn

Poor Aislynn! Theis meme seems to be going around like a case of poison ivy after the Elven Spring Celebration. *cough*

However, you have risen to the occasion admirably. I am pleased to see that Murder the Dawn is at the top of your list. It is definitely a favorite of mine as well. And of course. Ellessar's heir, which is how you and I came to correspond. Thus it has a special place in my heart. :)

Poison Ivy?

But, my lord, it was my delight to answer you request! Although - a case of poison ivy? I fear you lost me there.

And of course. Ellessar's heir, which is how you and I came to correspond. Thus it has a special place in my heart. :)

I love that story very much, as well, although by now I doubt that it will ever come to that - or at least, if so, the piece would need to be seriously rewritten. Still, it was a delight to write, and the very stimulating and fruitful correspondence it has brought about has been a pleasure to me ever since. -- Aislynn

Re: Poison Ivy?

LOL. It comes from practicing 'the great joy and delight' outside in the woods and not being careful about where one lies down. (You may have read that Elves have a Spring mating season since that is the time most elf-children are born. We do not, actually, but we do have one helluva party!) And then it spreads to the next person one touches. And so on, and so on . . .

However, I should not compare this delightful meme to a bad case of the itch. LOL

Re: Poison Ivy?
LOL - do they even have poison ivy in Europe? *scratches head*

Not originally; normally, it is imported out of America and grows mostly in gardens and botanic gardens, here. On the other hand, if Middle Earth had pipeweed, and tomatoes and potatoes already, long before Christophe Colon ever reached what he thought to be the coast of India, it could have had poison ivy, too. Apparently, the plant died out in Europe during the ages after the Fourth Age, and was just recently brought back here.

Re: Poison Ivy?
LOL You beat me to it. But who in their right mind would import poison ivy? *Shaking head*

On the other hand I have heard that mosquitoes were 'imported' into Hawaii by a vengeful whaler who left a barrel full of mosquito larva infested water on shore when a native did something he did not like. The story may be apocryphal.

Though perhaps at the moment I am leaning more in favor of 'Murder the Dawn'.

Funny; at most other archives - that is, mainly aff.net and Mirrormere - comments to MTD are more in the way of a polite: 'Very nice, but when are you updating your main story?'

I do admit that "Murder The Dawn" has decidedly less opportunity for good, old, plain pr0n, though. Oh, well...

Still, I do owe it to my muses to continue the main tale, too. :)
