I wrote most of these at least two years ago, but left one of the chapters (Water) unfinished, and in the meantime lost both what I had written, and whatever my original intention had been, so perhaps the chapter written last doesn't carry through the original idea as clearly. I also had no energy to edit out enough words to keep it to true drabble length.
I think part of my original thought was to associate each element with someone from the Fellowship, but not with the most immediately obvious person-obvious to me, at least. Thus, Gandalf could not be Fire, and Gimli could not be Earth, and Frodo could not be Spirit.
