    All stories below are by the talented Jay of Lasgalen over a period of years.
These all went online today, although not all are yet properly placed on Jay's Author's Page and Quick List where they will be placed among all the other stories in the order they would have happened in Tolkien's Middle-earth. The drabbles below are already in that order. A few more drabbles will be placed in this list in black to aid in placement, with links put up on the days they go online.

    "Nine Lives"
1 chapter. "A short, complete story. Pure fluff, featuring the twins and adult Arwen (because I've put them through so much angst lately!)"

    Drabbles: short stories of 100 words, and a few double drabbles of 200 words. This is a highly disciplined story form very close to poetry in impact. Quoted comments are directly from Jay, while others are the editor's fault. The editor finally caught up with about half of Jay's drabbles just in time as she made a new one July 24:

When I remembered that a certain pair of elven twins were 111 when their sister was born, the rest was easy! "
    "The Gift Horse" Elladan, Elrohir and the gift horse.
        "This one is for JastaElf’s birthday – a little late, I’m afraid.  Happy Birthday, Jasta!"

    "Why?" Thranduil learns that Legolas is going with the Fellowship."Written for the Wrath Challenge on Tolkien Weekly."

    "Dark Elf". If Legolas had gone to the side of Sauron... "Written for AU challenges on Tolkien Weekly and HASA." (AU means "Alternate Universe")
    "Hannon Le".
        "A friendship drabble with Legolas and Aragorn, written for Cassia and Sio at the Mellon Chronicles, to say ‘thank you’ for a Christmas gift they sent."
        According to review notes by Jay, this is all written from Legolas' point of view.
    "For Rohan". The riders of Rohan go out with Eomer, told by Arod's rider. Garulf is the rider of Hasufel, the horse later used by Aragorn. "This one is for Elvenesse (Kate) who requested the Rohirrim."

    "The Longing" What Legolas really wants.

    "The Wood of Greenleaves". "From Appendix B:  ‘On the day of the New Year of the Elves, Celeborn and Thranduil met in the midst of the forest, and they renamed Mirkwood Eryn Lasgalen.’ (The Elves’ New Year was 6th April, I know.) Happy New Year to you all! "
    "Battle Beneath the Trees" Reaction to a sight left after the battle in Mirkwood, probably Thranduil's point of view.
    "Scorched Earth"  Thranduil tries to repair Mirkwood after the burning of the final war with Dol Guldur. "This is from Thranduil’s POV, and was written for the ‘Earth’ challenge at Tolkien Weekly."

    "'Elvellon'" Legolas introduces Gimli to Thranduil.
    "The Houseless Ones". Legolas, Gimli, and the houseless ones.

    "The Politics of Gardening". Elrond visits Sam at Bag End. This could have happened after Elrond no longer had to guard Vilya and to visit Frodo. "A birthday drabble for paranoidangel (Nic), who is a fellow Review Admin at HASA.  She requested Elrond and Sam, so I’ve pretended that Elrond visited the Hobbits at some point."

    "Destiny" Elladan and Elrohir consider the choice of the half-elven.
        "I do not know the twins’ choice, but I tend to think that they chose immortality.  Whatever the decision,  I think they chose the same fate – I cannot imagine them being sundered as Elrond and Elros were. "
       (V): According to the books, the twins did not go with Elrond on the ship to Valinor as was required, but remained together in lordship at Rivendell. Celeborn later came to stay with them there before going on to Valinor himself, but it is not recorded that the twins made any attempt to go with him or at any later time. I tend to think they chose to remain on Middle-earth, but apparently they did indeed refuse to be sundered.
    "Choices" Elladan and Elrohir don't go to Valinor on their father's ship.
    "Leaving" Elladan and Elrohir make their final choice whether to go to Aman or stay in Middle-earth.
     "Time to Depart". Elladan and Elrohir leave for Valinor.
    "Arrival" Celebrian in Valinor watches for those she has long-awaited.

    Changing link colors, for improved uniformity and a bit of color. They are to all be as this page is.
    Alasse, Barahir, and Elwing emailed that they have more stories currently in progress. We look forward to them.

The Battle of the Crossing of Poros by Barahir-(V) is completed and online. The story was completed November 26. Delays to posting came while switching to a new program, discovering it was worse, and switching back.

    Play by Fingon-(V): "The Tale of Beren and Luthien".

Nov. 18, 2005
    The links should now be corrected for "The Battle of the Crossing of Poros". A rascally letter "u" is now on leash, we hope.
    Link colors now match the rest of the Encyclopedia.
    Headings for sections such as Titles, Characters, and Authors now match other pages' centering and font size.

Nov. 5, 2004
   
To improve finding files, all new stories will go into a special folder just for stories, no What's New lists, author pages, title lists, character lists etc included, and groups of chapters will have folders inside that if they didn't already. Older stories will move into it over time, probably by author; this will take a while as they have  so many links and my time is limited, but it will happen. When in the future you can't find a story at your old bookmark, don't panic; check for it under it's cross-index to the author, title, or characters. Nothing will be taken down at any time, just moved.
    Alasse's stories are now moved, links on Nov 4 below changed.
    The Battle of the Crossing of Poros by Barahir-(V) has been moved, links below changed. Chapter Six edited and all links changed on all previous chapters.

Nov. 4, 2005
    The Battle of the Crossing of Poros by Barahir-(V): Chapter Six online, sort of, not yet edited or properly linked in, so it has a white background. Put the raw one up while at work; will edit later.

    Her two short stories are The Choice of Luthien and Namarie, Arwen. They were previously published on Fanfiction.net.

    The Title List
is now separated into Complete and Incomplete Title Lists, for completed works only and works in progress only.
    Due to the lack of ever completing some stories and extremely low update rate by authors, I prefer not to take any more incomplete stories.
