Comments are always welcome! I posted the stories I have written before 7/14/2007 over several days, and with so much posting in such a short time period, I may have made formatting errors or not completely tagged everything. I am especially interested in fixing these, so please feel free to tell me if you notice anything. I have tried to post older stories by year, so you will find the first posts in this journal are my older stories

Word Count: 579
Rating: General
Summary: It's not always easy being different. A young Ioreth has a hard day.

Author's Notes: As an added challenge to the above, I'm trying to improve my dialect skills (i.e.: spell as it's pronounced without going totally Huck Finn on my reader. Would appreciate knowing if the dialect-writing is too much, not enough, inconsistent, etc.

Multimedia: For the interested, I listened to Entre Olas by Juan Serrano to get in the mood for writing Ioreth. You might find it good to listen to while reading. I don't know if it makes sense musicologically/historically, but I imagine songs like this as being the "Country-Western" of Gondor's music scene.
