Thanks for commenting on Trading Pledges, Alassante!
The exploration of dwarf customs is new to me so I am not sure if this is based on canon or just Adaneth's own universe . . . .
My take on Dwarves is as close to canon as I can get it, but the problem is that Tolkien wrote much less about Dwarves than Elves or Hobbits. There is wonderful stuff buried in the HoME volumes, but at some point you have to start making up things to fill in the gaps. Especially when you write about dwarf-women.
Someday I will write other shorts about life among the Firebeards, but in the meantime, if you want to read about Auð's brother and sons--and more about Auð herself--you can find them in my Dúnhebaid Cycle: Rock and Hawk, Fair Folk and Foul, Of Like Passion, and the current WIP, "After Stormy Seas."
For those of you who are already following along, I have just updated Chapters 8-10 of "After Stormy Seas," and hope to have a new chapter to you soon.
