I've got all the birthday fics published on Stories of Arda. I'll try to get them up on MPTT shortly.

Check them out here: http://www.storiesofarda.com/chapterlistview.asp?SID=7159

They are hot and they are fresh!

Hurrah!!!

July 29, 2013 is the FIFTH anniversary of the time I delurked.

And as a hobbit writer I do my best to celebrate properly, giving gifts to the people who are reading whatever it is I write.

So, give me a prompt and I'll give you at least 200 words, more likely 300. There are some stipulations:

1) I do not write slash, and when I write het, I do not write anything that goes beyond a marital snog.
2) If something I have already written is closed, I will not reopen it (whether it's closed because I haven't finished writing it yet, or because I explicitly said I didn't want to pursue a story further because my writing could never match the reader's imagination).
3) I find it difficult to write AUs that are AU because of authorial whim rather than intellectual speculation. I realize this is an arbitrary distinction, which is why I am not disallowing requests of this nature--just requesting your understanding if I'm not able to fulfill them wholly to your liking.

Please give me as many requests as you can--this is one of the most intellectually stimulating things I do all year, it helps me make sure I don't get into a rut, and most importantly, it's all done for *YOU*.

Feel free to forward this announcement to anyone who you think might be interested in some FREE FICTION.

Your humble servant,
Celeritas

In which Kira Proudfoot deals with the aftermath of the previous chapter's visit and the foremath of the wedding.

It may be read on Stories of Arda here.

In which Kira makes a fool of herself but we don't mind terribly because Thain Auduin is involved.

It may be found here on Stories of Arda.

In the wake of some rather troubling news (see here if you haven't yet:
http://mefas.livejournal.com/309296.html#comments) I thought it would be remiss
of me not to post something I should have four days ago:

July 29 is my *fourth* birthday! I believe that puts me well into fandom's
faunthood!

And as a hobbit writer it is only fit for me to (while squeezing my way back
into fandom) give gifts to all and sundry.

So, give me a prompt and I'll give you at least 200 words, more likely 300. 
There are some stipulations:

1) I do not write slash, and when I write het, I do not write anything that goes
beyond a marital snog.
2) If something I have already written is closed, I will not reopen it (whether
it's closed because I haven't finished writing it yet, or because I explicitly
said I didn't want to pursue a story further because my writing could never
match the reader's imagination).
3) I find it difficult to write AUs that are AU because of authorial whim rather
than intellectual speculation. I realize this is an arbitrary distinction,
which is why I am not disallowing requests of this nature--just requesting your
understanding if I'm not able to fulfill them wholly to your liking.

Hopefully this will cheer those on my flist... especially the ones who have been up to their eyeballs in B2MEM all month.

And speaking of eyeballs...

(And yes, these are taken from actual published SF, including recognized names.)

Okay, folks, this is hilarious.

When the fandom gets you down, always remember...

It could be worse.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

ETA: The original narrative of here; certain terms and phrases were pawned without credit by my first link.  Given the writer's somewhat sentimental attachment to his original treatment, I'd certainly love a gander at the screenplay and concept art.  The art is probably my favorite bit of the 12-minute short.
