No Greater Comfort by cairistiona [5 Reviews]

All Aragorn sought was shelter from a storm; instead, he found something infinitely more valuable. (This story placed 2nd in the "Four Elements" Teitho Challenge.)

Keeping Watch by cairistiona [2 Reviews]
A series of drabbles, double drabbles, etc. to form a complete stream-of-consciousness story as Halbarad, with the help of Elladan and Elrohir, keeps watch over an ill Aragorn. Prequel to the upcoming story, “At Hope’s Edge”. Written for the NaQuaWriMo challenge. All characters, except Halbarad's cantankerous steed Tarlanc, belong to Professor Tolkien and are only lovingly borrowed.

At Hope's Edge by cairistiona [88 Reviews]
It is October, T.A. 3000, and the Dúnedain continue to dwindle, a scattered remnant held together by hope in their Chieftain. But what happens when the Chieftain’s own hope starts to falter? An exploration of tragedy, grief, injury and illness and its effects on the most hardy of living Men. Now complete.

Rated for violence, angst, and OC character death. Except for a handful of OC’s, the characters belong to Prof. Tolkien.

At Hope's Edge: The Appendices by cairistiona [3 Reviews]
These might best be described as "deleted scenes" or "bonus material" to my story "At Hope's Edge" - short ficlets and sketches that I wrote in order to fully understand the characters and the situations in which they found themselves. Being "deleted scenes", some of the details may not match completely with the events in "At Hope's Edge", but most come close. While it is not necessary to read that story first, these will contain spoilers. Elrond's Tale - Part 2 completes Elrond's Tale.

The Ranger and the Hobbit by cairistiona [9 Reviews]
An AU-ish tale that’s less AU than it is “what if”: what if, as the Dúnedain patrol the region around the Shire, Aragorn has an encounter with an intrepid, resourceful hobbit, one with the same mettle as Bilbo and a similar yen for adventure? And what if Aragorn also has an encounter with some men with less friendly intentions? Tookishness and Rangerliness both abound in this tale of a quiet patrol turned disastrous.
