Ether Echoes

A star drifting through the cosmos.

Written Fiction


The Fifth Age - LotR Fanfic · 5:45pm January 19th

I've taken a brief foray into Lord of the Rings fanfiction - one set many years after the end of the main series in a time when Middle Earth is very modern and developed, essentially a fantasy version of the modern world rather than early Anglo-Saxon Europe.

It's pretty simple

In Pirene, most goblins have single word names. Most Wand-aligned goblins have a word in English or other Western languages as their name.

Wire was her birth name, for like ponies there's an element of destiny in it, given that she becomes an electrician.

Amelia decides on the spur of the moment, being a little trickster, to expand her name to sound more "ponyish" (not that some, like Rarity, don't have single word names) by calling her "Live Wire."

When she decides become a pony full-time, she adopts it as her actual name.

Her connection to Lightning Dust is that, in Pirene, Lightning Dust is an identity created wholecloth by the goblin known as Flash, and the forces of fate intertwined to bring Amelia and Wire together.

So, in short, no, it has nothing to do with Lightning Dust except within the logic of the canon of Pirene.

Hey I was just wondering, where did you get the idea of the name "Live Wire" from? It's not the only place I've seen the name for a lightning dust related character. Is it common fanon, or somehow related to canon?
