Honour, Wisdom, Kindness and Courage: Théoden King of Rohan

Title: Honour, Wisdom, Kindness and Courage: Théoden King of Rohan
Author: the_stowaway
Character: Théoden King of Rohan
Fandom: Lord of the Rings (book!verse)
Spoilers: Does this even apply to a book published in 1954-55? *g*
Beta: viva_gloria
Author's Note: This essay concerns itself with the book, rather than the movies, for, while Peter Jackson will ever have my awed respect for his magnificent achievement, and while Bernard Hill was brilliant as Théoden, it is to the source text that my heart is given first, last and always. I read it first in 1966, and have re-read it at least once a year since. Each time it fills me with love and a renewed sense of wonder.

idol_reflection is now open for business on GreatestJournal as well

Owing to recent concerns about LJ's terms of service, we're opening a GreatestJournal version of this community, idol_reflection. Please feel free to post your essays on either version of the community, or to cross-post to both. You can also repost essays you've posted here in the past to the GJ community, and in fact we encourage you to do so.

We've reserved the idol_reflection username on InsaneJournal as well, and will consider opening that community to posting as well if that seems to be where large portions of fandom are headed.

Barring disaster, we will keep this community open on LiveJournal, but we wanted to give you another option for posting, and to encourage you to help us back up this community by reposting to the GJ comm -- this community has seen a lot of fabulous work in the last three years, and I'd hate to see any of that work lost.

Charlotte Pollard (Doctor Who)

Title: Edwardian Adventuress
Author: amaresu
Fandom: Doctor Who, Eighth Doctor audios
Character: Charley Pollard
Spoilers: Storm Warning, Minuet in Hell, Seasons of Fear, Embrace the Darkness, Neverland, Zegreus, and general stuff for C'rizz.
Notes: Two weeks late. I really have no excuse and I apologize. Also due to technical difficulties I was forced to write in WordPad so sorry for any errors I wasn't able to catch. Also for those who don't know Big Finish does a series of audio stories for Doctor Who. They are fantastic and you should go listen to some of them.
