Kinsmen by Dwimordene Rated: PG [Reviews - 1]
Summary: From father to son, the line of Isildur has remained unbroken through many long years of toil and peril. Of the names of the Chieftains recorded, a full quarter died untimely, but passed their title on to their sons. This is a tale of the Dúnedain, and of keeping the line alive at all costs, as seen through the eyes of two mothers. Includes a postscript fic to address the paternal side of things.

Midsummer's Eve by Dwimordene Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 1]
Summary: "And on the evening of Midsummer Aragorn, Arathorn's son, and Arwen daughter of Elrond went to the fair hill, Cerin Amroth, in the midst of the land, and they walked unshod on the undying grass with elanor and niphredil about their feet. And there upon that hill they looked east to the Shadow and west to the Twilight, and they plighted their troth and were glad." - 'The Tale of Aragorn and Arwen,' Appendix A, ROTK, 386.





Four drabbles for Arwen, for being quartered on choice... and desire.

Summary: "The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves."--Shakespeare, "Julius Caesar," Act I.2 Slash story. An attempt to explore the sexual mores of Rangers and the problems inherent in being in the minority in a small town. Warning: If you like the Halbarad I've written before, and don't want to think him otherwise on account of something *else* I've written, then please do not read because you won't enjoy it. Explicit (but not graphic) sex, prostitution, and a look at Halbarad's friendship with Aragorn. An alternative interpretation, stands alone and apart from the "Star and Stone" continuum.

Summary: "[N]ot every action or feeling admits of the mean... We cannot do them well or not well—by committing adultery, for instance, with the right woman at the right time in the right way."--Aristotle, Nichomachean Ethics, Bk II.6, 1107a 10-15. A sequel to "Not In Our Stars" (though you need not read this for that story to be complete) in which I try to deal with the ins and outs of temptation, love, commitment, indiscretions, and authority among Rangers and their community. Turns on the standard slash h/c scenario while attempting to undermine it. Needless to say, given that, it's very angsty. Sex is explicit.
