_______ sat upright in bed, cold sweat dripping down the side of her face. Lightning flashed purple and the booming thunder followed. She sighed and threw off the silk covers, ‘Just another damn nightmare’, she thought and walked over to her balcony window. ______ loved storms, she loved rain, she loved pretty much anything wild and free. Being the princess and heir to the throne of England, she was expected to be everything but free. It was going to be her 19th birthday in a couple of days also meaning that her stepmother was going to marry her off to some suck up noble’s son and bare children. She shuddered furiously, trying to shake that thought out of her mind.

Bilbo muffled a low groan in the leather of his rucksack – temporarily utilised as a pillow – and wriggled slightly, attempting to find a comfortable position. It was no good however, no matter which way he shifted the rock on which he lay refused to relinquish its crusade to become one with his spleen.
Sighing, Bilbo sat up and rubbed his face. The rocky terrain leading up to the Misty Mountains was so uncomfortable that virtually all of the company had decided to just power through it. The only ones capable of sleep were Bombur and Bifur, Bombur because his great size meant that he felt the insistent pressure of the stony ground far less than everyone else and Bifur because . . . well, he was Bifur.
“You’lright there Bilbo?” Bofur asked vaguely, from where he sat next to the Hobbit.
“Yeah, I’m fine.” Bilbo lied. He was reluctant to complain. There was nothing anyone could do and e

A Princess With A SecretThere was once an old King who had two daughters, of whom the younger possessed the greater beauty and vivaciousness. She captured the admiration of those around her from an early age, and when she came of an age to be courted the older princess found that she was passed over in favour of her younger sister's charms. Many powerful men approached the King for the younger princess's hand in marriage, and in time he arranged for her to become betrothed to a young King from the east.A Princess With A Secret9 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
The young princess, however, had no wish to wed and she coined excuses to avoid departing on the traditional visit to her intended husband's lands until eventually she could not put off the visit any longer. The night before the visit she went to her sister's bedroom with a troubled countenance. "Sister," said she. "I do not want to go to the east. What if the King is horrible?"

Told to Legolas's POV
Also known as Bad Habits, Chapter 1
Legolas closed his eyes and tried to trick the ranger into thinking he was asleep.
Legolas, I know you are not asleep! the ranger said in an annoyed tone. Although the elf did not notice, his fingers were in his mouth, and he was chewing on them. Grow up and stop biting your nails! came the same annoyed voice. Aragorn really was getting irritated.
Legolas sat up. Hadnt his father said almost the same thing when he was young? He rolled his eyes. Oh brother, he muttered to himself in Silvan. He knew the only other person in the group who might be able to understand him was Aragorn, who was glaring at him.
Legolas, the ranger said more quietly, I cant believe you havent gotten over that! It has been many years, mellon-nin.
I know. And I still havent figured out why I do it, the blonde elf replie
Betrayal of Morphine She was sitting beside the small boy's bed when he opened his shadowy eyes. The first thing he noticed was her hair: it was golden and glowing faintly. He couldn't remember if hair normally did that or not, but it hurt him to look at her; she, like sunlight, burned his eyes in the darkness. In the dim room, in his numb thoughts, the girl's hair looked like a halo, and he imagined he saw her unfold wings and fly away, but then he blinked and she was still there.Betrayal of Morphine6 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
The first things the girl noticed were his eyes. They were dark and clouded with pain, flashing like a stormy sky or an emergency light on a sinking ship. They flickered like incandescents losing power; his pupils dilated as he blinked, struggling to focus on her. She looked at the IV meter indicating the level of failing platelets and morphine, and the machine hummed as she watched the blood swirl unfaithfully.

The Elvenking sat back in his throne, arms and legs crossed, his soft lower lip protruding ever so slightly forward in what could only be described as a pout. His son stood before him, accompanied by the King’s advisor, trying hard to remain serious and not laugh at his father’s rather childish expression. The advisor sighed, smiling ever so slightly, knowing that he could not change his stubborn King’s mind.
“As you wish, my Lord.”
Thranduil cleared his throat, his face returning to its usual regal calm and he nodded his dismissal to his advisor, who quickly left, leaving behind the father and son. Thranduil’s expression immediately softened as he stood, smiling down fondly at the golden-haired elf before him wh

I fell in love with you.
Nothing will stop me,
From winning your heart.
You will see me,
You will love me,
You will know me,
As I know wish you.
Nothing hurts me more,
Than seeing you in pain.
Crying over fear of life,
For threats have been sent your way.
I'll find them and kill them,
And the threats will go away.
I'll take my life before I lose you,
I'll end the pain of your loss.
For the many years I lived,
Have I once felt this strong.
I want to hold you,
Make you feel safe.
You gave me emotion,
And restored my coloured sight,
You have kept the demon at bay,
I've been alone for many years,
No emotion and no fears.
Then I met you,
And things have all changed.
I gave you blood,
You gave me yours,
And with this exchange,
Your life will change,
I will know what you think,
And the same will go for you.
Nothing secret will tear us apart,
I will be by your side,
I don't care what's in the past,
I only care if you are alright.

Gimli enjoyed exploring. Gimli's father, Gloin, had raised him on tales of Thorin's expedition for the Arkenstone. Gimli wanted to follow his father's footsteps, maybe even surpassing them. His own journey was nothing like his childhood daydreams. It was wearing, terrifying, miserable, difficult, and often boring. He relished every second. That was why he accepted the elf's invitation to sail west to Valinor.
Gimli would travel farther than any other dwarf before or after him. He had not realized that he would be the only dwarf on the continent. It seemed silly, but he did not consider how alone he would feel. He missed his family, but it was the small things that drowned him in nostalgia. He missed drinking a pint of ale by the firelight; he missed seeing faces with real beards, not sissy elf-beards; he missed sitting in a chair where his feet touched the ground.
Gimli's friends did their best to make him feel at home, but it was not enough. Legolas was always good company, but he did

Gandalf had assured them earlier that day that, if they pushed on just maybe an hour or so more, they would easily reach the edge of Mirkwood by the following evening. Their bodies stiff from riding Beorn’s ponies all afternoon, the company had elected to dismount and to walk for a while. They had done this at regular intervals throughout the day as it gave them an opportunity to stretch their cramping limbs and to allow the hardy little beasts to take a well-deserved break.
They still had a way to walk yet until they could stop and rest. However, due to the happy discovery of a short cut, they had made far greater progress than expected. They had bypassed the area that Gandalf had expected them to reach by dusk hours ago and were now pressing on to another place where they could shelter for the night.

Gimli yelled as he slid under the Uruk-Hai Berserker. The creature raised his blade, but too late, and Gimli's axe caught it in the belly.
"Legolas! Two already!" Gimli called to his Elvin companion.
"I'm on seventeen!" Legolas called back, drawing back his bow.
"What? I'll have no pointy-ear outscoring me!" Gimli turned rapidly and sought out another foe to cleave. He was almost out of earshot when he heard Legolas yell "nineteen". Frustration gave strength to his swings, and another uruk fell to his axe.
The Uruk-Hai outside of the wall stood restlessly. Their group wasn't due to enter the battle for awhile, and the sounds of battle on top of the wall made them impatient. Only their discipline kept them from all storming the wall at once. Ladders were unreliable, and it was practically suicide to go up one.
And besides, there was a new sound rising over the din of the battlefield, one that made the uruks more and more reluctant to go up the ladders.

Ludwig was sure he’d studied the book to the point where he could recite it word for word, so why, just why did he feel so nervous?
Skimming through the thin pages once more, the German sighed before setting it down, blue eyes glancing at the title in neat font before sighing once again.

There was no way he could let anyone know that he’d been reading from this book – and not to mention, taking several notes on it – all because of a girl.
But let’s face it, the girl was you and Ludwig refused to give you anything less than perfection.
Thus, he bought the book for a cheap payment of fifteen dollars.
Well, perhaps it wasn’t that cheap, but that wasn’t going to stop him from impressing you.
But dear god was he embarrassed when the old lady at the cashier giggled and winked at him before wishing him good luck.

Damn this place, and damn the humans who lived here.
Being an elf in this society was hard enough as it is. Living in the slums of the city only to be abused by your human overlords really weighed down on your species. It was unfair. You hated it.
Everyone seemed to think it was perfectly reasonable to treat you worse than they treat their own pets simply because your ears were pointed. It was such a ridiculous notion you could barely wrap your head around it. But it didn’t matter what you thought, no one would listen to you.
Elves weren’t allowed to claim a title, or lands, or riches. You were probably at the top of the food chain right now just doing what you were doing – which was working as a servant in the royal castle.
You’d think that here, among the servants that you’d be treated equally – oh how wrong you were. There were barely any elven servants besides yourself, and it confused you to no end.
Despite being treated as second-class citizens
