    The reference to "whole mines of gold" in my poem made me think of dwarves, so naturally I have written a piece celebrating the love of Durin and Disa from Amazon's Rings of Power:

    Two Were One

    (bursts into the room running from the boredom that is going to plague her job for the next 2 slow months and the writer's block that has been tormenting her)

    Give me #11 @Findswoman, let's see if I can do something with it.

    Absolutely! (And great to see you back! :) ) Here is no. 11 for you:

    A single flow’r he sent me, since we met.
    All tenderly his messenger he chose;
    Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet—
    One perfect rose.

    I knew the language of the floweret;
    “My fragile leaves,” it said, “his heart enclose.”
    Love long has taken for his amulet
    One perfect rose.

    Why is it no one ever sent me yet
    One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
    Ah no, it’s always just my luck to get
    One perfect rose.

    Hello dear OTPers! It’s been a while, I know!

    First of all, please accept my apologies for completely and totally forgetting about the deadline for our most recent challenge, the Love Poems by Women Roulette (#27), which was back on December 11; RL has been pretty rough on me lately. But I’m thrilled to finally be able to present a proper voting post for the three (3) fabulous stories that came in for that challenge:
    • Two Were One by devilinthedetails (NSW: Rings of Power, with Durin and Disa)
    • Scerra My Love by earlybird-obi-wan (Nejaa Halcyon and OC Scerra Lamar; OCs Rostek Horn and Scerra Lamar)
    • Indescribable Devotion by WarmNyota_SweetAyesha (NSW: Star Trek, with Nyota and Spock)
    (If I’ve missed any, please let me know!)

    Please PM your votes to this sock. You have two (2) weeks to send in your votes: they are due Friday, January 13, 2023, at 11:59 pm (23:59) PST. You know the rules: one vote per person, no funny business with socks, no voting for yourself, etc., etc. I’ll announce the winner a day or two after the voting due date. (And this time I’ll make sure to set my mobile reminders so I don’t miss any deadlines!)

    Many thanks, and happy voting to all! :D
