Tried to sleep, and it is being elusive tonight. Wandered the internet, through places both foreign and familiar until I stumbled into something delightful, by happy accident.

A bedtime story, if you will, something read long years ago, and it produced a flit of a thought as I closed the window, and one which buzzed about until I got back on and came here just to put it somewhere safe, lest I forget by morning's light.

There was something special about the niche of the fandom where Glorfindel and Erestor played... something always felt different there for me, like the 'usual' authors of that pairing had a perpetual snugglepile going on where ideas were batted around like well-loved kitty jingleballs and cats and kittens were altogether not uncommon companions to either or both. There was that magical time where stories about them were woven together with such creativity, that on more than one occasion the same plot was tackled by multiple authors in ways different enough so that it all had to be explained, that those were branches of the same tree.

I miss that. Clearly, I am one of those at fault for wandering myself. And while, I suspect, Thranduil/Moose is sure to be the next big thing in Elvendom (Thranduil/Elk? Thranduil/Reindeer? I know, I know, I'm ruining the moment...), that was not what I typed into google an hour ago. It was 'Glorfindel and Erestor and cute'. I know, I'm a sucker for the sappy fluff. Regret nothing, except that there isn't more of it. We need, like, a challengey thing to make more of it. Possibly with ponies. Or cookies. Or both. Or cookies decorated to look like ponies. But not ponies decorated to look like cookies.

I'm like a Noldo though. I start something, there's only a 12% chance it gets done without a fail whale named Annatar dropping onto someone's head, and sometimes that results in the loss of a hand. Or some ships. Or fighting in the War of Telerin Aggression (that one's for you, Lalaith). I need to sell this idea (not literally, it's free, just take it) to someone... so that more cute Glorfindel and Erestor things populate the internets.

That's all, because I think I sort of got the basic idea out there, and I need to be awake in four hours.

Erulisse has posed, among other questions, how it is that cheesecake became such a staple in the bunniverse. I wish I could post the origin piece that it came from, but the yahoo group that had it has since been deleted, so it will need to be retold from memory.

I had a thought this morning. The only really good parts of this novel so far are the flashbacks about Glorfindel. Why not scrap the rest, and jump back and tell this as a pre-Unforgettable story instead of a post-Unforgettable story?

And then, I was thinking about it, and really this novel is about letting go (though temporarily). Just as Erestor is having trouble moving forward after Glorfindel's death, I'm having trouble moving a story forward without him -- so much so, I keep writing flashbacks.

Still not sure where I'm going with things on this. Hopefully I'll be at 25K tonight, one way or another.

still haven't budged from 22099...

Title: Unforgettable, Chapter 36
Characters: Glorfindel, Erestor, and everyone else in Gondolin
Summary: Zhie’s muses take over and make her write about Gondolin. Seriously, I know there’s a real summary, but actually, the above about sums it up.
Rating: NC17, for real this time, honestly.. both slash and femslash and something that could almost be called het ahead. Bring a towel. Why? Towels are the most useful thing in the universe, especially when dealing with these types of fics. You can sit on them for purposes of reading the good parts, and use them to prod the author to keep writing after. Er… wait, not the last part… just… nevermind…

Notes: This story is causing all sorts of plotholes and wrongness in other stories. Specifically, By Your Side, Silver and Gold, and one or two others I can’t recall at the moment. That being the case, please keep that in mind, that I will fix the continuity on the others, but I want this beast finished first before I go back and hit those. ^_^ On with the story!
