1. Glorfindel/Ecthelion.

I may need to get back to this one, as I am having a hard time treating it with the seriousness it deserves.

All I have right now is an Amazon-ish Gondolin AU (which, admittedly, could be awesome.) The story could begin with warriors Ectheliel and Glorfindel (totally a gender-neutral name!) taking a post-training shower in the gymnasium.

"What is it, Ectheliel?" asks Glorfindel.

"Sorry?" Ectheliel lifts her eyes up to meet Glorfindel's. Curse it, she has been staring again! It's just that she feels so... JEALOUS, yes, that's it, of Glorfindel's bosom, which is not only enormous, but also perfectly shaped, and which lifts and moves in such an interesting way as Glorfindel lifts up her hands to run her fingers through her golden hair--

"I was just wondering," says Glorfindel, "why you keep staring at my chest. You know, in anyone else, I would read that as a sign of interest." She laughs in a slightly forced way.

Ectheliel almost joins in, out of nervousness -- Oh Eru, have her Unnatural Desires been detected? -- but manages to put on a stern expression just in time. "I was just thinking," she says, "that you might consider wearing a top with more built-in support when you do vigorous physical exercises. All that... motion cannot be comfortable."

Glorfindel shrugs, generating even more interesting movement. Ectheliel manages not to look.

"It is fine," says Glorfindel. "Anyway, comfort is not my main priority. I really dislike the way those supportive tops make me look. Sort of... unbalanced, given the width of my hips."

Ectheliel cannot see any problems with Glorfindel's hips, or with anything in that general area, but to it would be inappropriate to say such a thing to a fellow warrior. "Well, I like wearing them, anyway," she says lamely, instead.

"Yes, I know." Glorfindel smiles warmly. "But then, you could not possibly look unbalanced in anything. What was it that Pengolodh called you, again?"


Gah, brain is broken by silliness.
I am a bit worried that Glorfindel comes across as stereotypically girly-frivolous here, but Regular!Tehta!Glorfindel is exactly the same, I swear.

I think you gave this prompt its due.

I'm sure Glorfindel's bosom is a glory to behold. I bet elves never have to worry about sagging either. Which is another reason to resent them. >:(

Dammit, you replied before I could get rid of Annoying Present Tense.

But yes, Glorfindel's bosom is one of the best. (Still unsure who would have THE BEST bosom in this universe, though. Maybe Elwe. She attracted a Maia, after all.)

Maedhris' bosom must also be quite something, she is, after all, very well-shaped.

4. Feanor + Sons

I am sorry, but this makes way too much sense for me to write it. I mean, Feanor is the Spirit of Fire*, right? So obviously his kids would cluster around him on cold evenings. It saves on fuel that could more productively be used in the forge/kiln/etc, anyway.

* long-held suspicion: he is the child of Miriel's hot affair with Gothmog, which was the real reason for her disappearance. And he died not because Balrogs were trying to murder him, but because his real daddy was trying to give him a hug.

And thus Miriel's sudden decline after Feanor's birth is explained. It wasn't post-partum depression but wicked internal burns. Ouch.

Trufax: I once started a story where Gothmog visits dangling!Maedhros, and tries to bond with his grandson.

But why did he then kill Maedhros' boy friend?

Unless Gothmog didn't approve of Fingon...

He didn't! He longed for great-grandchildren.

Way harsh, Gothmog. :(

Celebrimbor must've been his favorite, then.

This is so great! The idea alone =) ... I have always harbored the suspiocion that Feanor never actually died. He just hangs around in Maia form.

the huddling for warmth would make a great picture. Feanorian (puppy) pile.

OMG this is just too good. I'll have to restrain myself!

Um... Beleg/Mablung, Secretly A Virgin, or Haldir/Glorfindel, Forced To Share A Bed.

The second one would not be very interesting, because my version of Glorfindel is not very slutty, and would see no problem with platonic bed-sharign. As for the second, however...

“So,” said Beleg. “Turin has asked me about the facts of life.”

“The facts of life!” Mablung laughed. “Well, you can certainly tell him those!”

“Yes... of course I can. However,” Beleg continued, “I am, of course, wondering how to approach the subject. How would you do it?”

“Well, I would tell him about the... the bees. And the birds, must not forget the birds!”

“Right, I will certainly mention both. But afterwards...” Beleg paused. “I suppose I will have to mention the ladies?”

“Yes! The ladies!” Mablung laughed more loudly. “But that will be no trouble to you, seeing as you have intercoursed with so many!”

“True, I have had the sex with many ladies,” said Beleg. “Though not as many as you. So, how should I begin?”

“Well, I would-- Oh look, an Orc!”

“Where?” asked Beleg.

But he received no reply, for Mablung had run off into the woods.

HA! This pleased me greatly!

Oh, poor Mablung. One wonders if his nickname of the "Heavy Hand" relates to more than just his martial prowess. He spends more time polishing his...sword...than having the sex with the ladies.

5. Glorfindel & Ecthelion. Preferably in front of Turgon.

But... this wouldn't be that weird, post Strange Fortunes. Or that much of a stretch. I mean, G&E have decided they are almost married, by that point, and Turgon knows of their relationship.

Or do you mean this should happen earlier, changing the plot of the story? Like before the Ice?
I guess I could do something where Turgon decrees that nobody can join his host anymore, unless they are married to a current member. But Ecthelion really needs to join, and Turgon's host is the last in the marching order, and so his only chance. (As to why he would need to join... Maybe he has a family member somewhere in an earlier group that he promised to protect?) So Glorfindel who, in this version, knows E slightly, and likes him a lot, comes up with a BRILLIANT plan where he brings Ectheliel along as his wife. And they end up sharing snow-shelters, etc.

I don't know. I still find E's motivation a bit weird here, and I am not sure he would go for this sort of deception.

Well, Glorfindel coming up with a BRILLIANT plan makes a lot of sense in your universe; that is what he does best, after all.

And, no, I was rather coming from the angle that Turgon is not thrilled with Maeglin's wedding suggestion in Strange Fortunes and wants the thing hushed up as much as possible. But perhaps you are right that this would not be all that interesting.

I can't snippetize this right now. But I will give you several options. (Leaving out obvious ones like "ancient Thebes" and "imaginary chivalrous Middle Ages.")
1. Rome, time of... Caligula? They're both young aristocrats. They would have some fun military campaigns in Germany, and then come back to Rome and see what a mess it is and try to be ethical about it. I think this ends with noble suicide for both of them.
2. Fighter pilots, Battle of Britain. This one can be almost canon! They can both die while taking out a technologically superior opponent. (For extra canon accuracy, Ecthelion should run into his kamikaze style after losing all power and drown in the Channel.)
3. Wild West! This could be even more canon-related! They can both be noble deputies who die defending a small town from eeeevil bandits.

Sorry. Not funny. I am tired.
