Mischievous Misadventures - Chapter FourThe bow cried out to them, a desperate and dangerous call.Mischievous Misadventures - Chapter Four by Willow-in-the-Wind
Pippin sat and gawked wide-eyed at the enchanted object that had strayed into the shire, whilst Merry stayed by him in somewhat of a crouch.
“How do you know it’s Elvish, Merry?” asked Pippin, doubt laced his thoughts. He dare not say it but Pip had some suspicion that his cousin didn’t even know what an Elvish bow looked like. The bow that lay before their eyes had exquisite qualities but the Elves were not the only creature with an eye for dexterity. Pip had seen numerous items carved by the hands of men in the shire that had put some of his attempts at craft to shame.
Merry was quiet. His eyes skimmed the delicate detail of the bow, captivated by each perfect carving. It was implausible that something so beautiful could do such horrid deeds.

The wind blew lightly through the oaks by Brandywine River, just enough to put a relieving cold edge to the humid air. The bird
Mischievous Misadventures - Chapter OneThere was not a single wisp of cloud to be seen in the impeccable cobalt sky. The previous day’s storm had far from moved on and the life in the shire came alive once more.Mischievous Misadventures - Chapter One by Willow-in-the-Wind
Hobbits emerged eagerly from their hobbit-holes, delighted with the beautiful weather.
Though none was happier than Peregrin Took.
It is a difficult thing for a hobbit, especially one as inquisitive as Pippin, to remain indoors for hours on end. For a hobbit with the adventurous ‘Tookish’ nature it was particularly testing.
Pippin and his cousin, Meriadoc Brandybuck, had planned another one of their many farm raids. It would be far easier as Farmer Maggot and his family were going to be in Hobbiton for his daughter’s birthday. This meant that the farm would only be guarded by the Farmer’s three dogs; Grip, Fang and Wolf.
But even then it was actually going to be quite a mission but an easier mission.
Pippin put his hands in his emerald vest pockets and grinned wildly as he lifted his no
| You've stumbled upon Tolkien-Voronwë - what are we? |
Voronwë is a word of Quenya. Besides it being a name of a Noldo Elf, it also means loyalty.
As long as you're a Tolkien fan and your profile contains nothing generally offensive, you're welcome to join. As long as you respect the group rules and realize not to (repeatedly) submit any material outside them, you can still have it in your own gallery.
If you're only curious, you're always welcome to add us to your watch.
The main purpose of this DA group is collecting deviations that are as canon or loyal as possible to Eä - the original rich vision, lore and fantasy universe of J.R.R. Tolkien. Any theme from Arda (the world of the universe of Eä) is welcome.
Many styles of arts and crafts are allowed, but the style preference of art is mainly realistic or something fit for a storybook. What is especially welcome is originality - we encourage you to show your original products of imagination which came from reading the books. You can also post your own original fan made characters.
Remember that the group is book based. You can submit deviations about characters which bear the resemblance with the depictions in other Tolkien media, but if you do, use the book scenes rather than the possibly rewritten scenes in that media.
Content that we accept
The Lord of the Rings (LotR)
Bilbo's Last Song
Unfinished Tales (UT)
History of Middle-Earth (HoME)
Children of Húrin (CoH)
Other Tolkien material
The "hidden moments" that happened
Content that we do not accept
Modernizing, save in Humor folder. The events of Eä locate in epic ancient times in an alternate history - try to keep the atmosphere.
World crossovers between Eä and another universe, save in Humor folder.
Gary Stus and Mary Sues, save in Humor folder. Keep the characters realistic with themselves and the others.
Original characters that are too closely related to the canon characters. Tolkien designed quite detailed family trees for the heroes and heroines. You may understand why such characters might not fit too well in the orientation of this group.
An exception to this is depicting characters that surely exist in the family tree, but aren't much known about.
Original characters from any media (yours or someone else's) which were created to make the storyline to stray away from the original text.
Non-canon pairings of Tolkien's original characters - this also includes slash, mpreg and fpreg. Canon pairings are allowed, but also remember which characters Tolkien meant as bachelors.
Featured - This folder can be edited and submitted to by the appointed moderators only who are granted a permission to edit the gallery as a whole. Especially wonderful deviations go to Featured, and a random deviation is being displayed as a large thumbnail each time someone visits the page.
Beginners - This folder is for deviations of beginning artists who wish to read some advice, tutorials and constructive criticism on the way to evolving to their own peak as artists. We all started from somewhere, so if you want these things, Beginners folder is the way to go. If you wish to your deviation moved forward from Beginners to some other folder, send us a note.
Ainur - For the Ainur as known from The Silmarillion. All the mainly Vala and Maia themed deviations go here, and as the Five Wizards (Saruman, Gandalf, Radagast, Alatar and Pallando) are Maiar, their place is also in this folder.
Misc and Other - Deviations about interracial groups and things that don't belong in any other category.
UT and HoME - Silmarillion is a grand source of Tolkien's lore, but Christopher Tolkien also published more of his father's text in Unfinished Tales and History of Middle-Earth series (which the folder name stands for). While some parts of the lore correlate with Tolkien's main books, some lore in them is either peripheral or abandoned. This folder accepts the deviations from them, was the lore open for debate or not.
Tolkien's Other Work - This folder is for the art based on other works of JRR Tolkien outside Middle-Earth, academic or non-academic (such as translation of Beowulf).
Original Creations - Any fan made original characters, fiction literature, films and animations go here. Emphasis on the word "original" - this folder is all about your own creations.
Just For Fun (formerly Humor and Memes) - This folder allows modern references, world crossovers and Mary Sues for things taken more less seriously such as humor, memes and greeting cards (though non-canon pairing and slash are still not allowed).
Journals - Do you have WIP to talk about or something other Tolkien related to promote? This is where your blogs and journals are allowed. For members only.
If you accept these rules, you might feel at home with us!
