Summary: This was part of a post in the forum of another LOTR site: If, Denethor and Boromir had somehow survived the War of the Ring, what would have happened? With Denethor still Steward and not Faramir, will there be civil war between him and Aragorn? If so, which side will the lords of Gondor, including Boromir, Faramir, and Imrahil, be on? A fascinating what-if... So, I just thought I'd share that little plotbunny. Do with it what you will.
Categories: Book-verse, Movie-verse Characters: Aragorn, Boromir, Denethor, Faramir
Summary: It can be about anything, with any characters from LotR, but it has to have in it somewhere a song from either Red Dwarf or Monty Python. It'll be good to see what people come up with :)

Summary:

Pity may have kept Bilbo from killing Gollum, but not everyone shares that compassion. Gollum died after leading the hobbits into Shelob's lair but before he bit the Ring off Frodo's hand.

What happens when Frodo decides to keep the Ring?

1. One-Shot Story (option one): Sam won't accept Frodo's decision. They've gone too far to fail now. Will he fight Frodo to destroy the ring himself? If he gets the Ring, will he be able to succeed where his friend failed?

2. One-Shot Story (option two): How does Gollum die? Who kills him and why? Was it Frodo? Did he finally go mad and kill the wretch so he'd stop trying to take the Ring? Did Sam, who knew the truth about Gollum's desire for the Ring, feel it was the only way to protect Frodo? Perhaps Sauron's servant (who sent him on an errand of mischief) discovered he failed and punished him for it?

Maybe Gollum wandered to the west side of the mountains in search of food and water or on another errand. Did Faramir find him wandering alone and assume he'd killed the two hobbits? Was it Legolas, who was angered by the shame Gollum brought to the woodland elves by escaping their dungeons? Or was he killed by someone completely unexpected?

3. Short Story: As Isildur's fate was drastically effected for the worse, so is Frodo's. What happens to the Hobbit? Describe everything from the moment he keeps the Ring until it arrives in Sauron's possession.

4. Novel-length Story: Frodo finds himself taken captive by Sauron's armies. Now the Dark Lord has his Precious back. What havoc does the hobbit's failure cause for Middle Earth's people? How does the land change in nature and civilization? How does the Ring get recaptured and destroyed?

For "extra credit", don't add Original Characters.

5. Other Inspiration: Tell another story inspired by and related to the basis of this challenge.

Summary: Hello everyone :D Right. I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this but I believe that the Faramir and Éowyn romance is one of the best and the cutest. However there just aren't enough fics out there about these two together. So, my challenge to you is, write a story (of whatever length and genre, although I do like a bit of fluff) about Faramir and Éowyn together. It could be their married life, it could be when they were still getting to know each other in the Houses of Healing, ANYTHING! :D I'd love to see what you come up with, and I will review all entries! NB: Graphic sex scenes are NOT a necessity! They shouldn't be the main focus of the story.
Categories: Movie-verse, Book-verse Characters: Eowyn, Faramir
Summary: You can write about any pure friendship - between any mortals or immortals or whoever. Between Elves, Men, Dwarves, Hobbits - even Orcs if you're feeling brave! Keep it clean, preferably no romance as this is a friendship challenge!
Categories: Book-verse, Movie-verse Characters: The Fellowship
Summary: Gollum/Smeagol died a terrible and gruesome death. But imagine, if you will, an alternate ending to Frodo's epic journey - what if our hairy-footed hero had managed to resist the call of the Ring and had destroyed it of his own free will? What would have become of Smeagol then?
Categories: Movie-verse, Book-verse Characters: Gollum
Summary: Alright people! Good clean fiction, nothing explicit. It must be rolling on floor laughing worthy. You can use anything your mind can think of (maybe even mocking Mary and Gary Stues!!!)So again there really are no rules expect making it funny and nothing explicit. This should be interesting.

Summary: Write a Mary sue fanfiction where a modern girl comes to middle earth, but has no knowledge of where she is. She must be from our time, or after the Lord of the Rings was popular. You must make this mary sue normal in everyway. I would like someone to write about her falling in love with an elf, and how the elf would respond to her realistically, keeping the elf and all Tolkien's characters as much in cannon as you can :). No super mary sues!! Also, how will she get back to our world, and what kind of drama will ensue while she is in Middle Earth. There must be one major/secondary character death, and the modern girl can't speak elvish when she arrives! Neither can she speak the common tongue, because the commmon tongue was not english, either! Please, no slash, keep Tolkien's characters in cannon. Also, no crossovers. It would be much more challenging without. Have fun with it! What kind of things would she have brought with her? iPods, speakers, a watch? How would her being modern affect Middle Earth (WITHOUT changing the story!)? Have fun!!

Summary: Liriel of Lothlorien is Haldir's sister and has been the secret lover of Prince Legolas for years. She is Arwen's closest female friend and an ex-girlfriend (not sexual!) of one of Arwen's brothers. What happens when Liriel arrives for the Council of Elrond as Legolas' new bride? I'd love to see the interplay between Haldir and Legolas over the very quick wedding, and how you persuade Gimli that it's a good idea to have another Elf in the party. How do you convince Boromir that a female elf can be a warrior? Must have the couple trying to sneak away for quiet moments but always being interrupted - and I'd love to see someone explaining Elven sex to the hobbits! I'd also suggest arguments between the young couple where Liriel makes it plain to all and sundry that she has a will and a mind of her own. I'm also wondering how things change if someone manages to heal Theoden's son? If you write as just LOTR, great. Cross-over options preferred would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Harry Potter.
Categories: Movie-verse, Crossovers Characters: Aragorn, Arwen, Boromir, Celeborn, Denethor, Elladan, Elrohir, Elrond, Eomer, Eowyn, Faramir, Frodo, Galadriel, Gandalf / Olorin, Gimli, Glorfindel, Haldir, Legolas, Merry, Original Character, Pippin, Sam, Théoden, Théodred, Thranduil
Summary: What if a different member of the Fellowship were the Ringbearer? What would Gimli do with the Ring? Or, perhaps Grima happened to stumble upon it? Basically, any character in Middle Earth is the Ringbearer and goes on an adventure with a Fellowship of the Ring (it can be any characters as well) Keep it clean; no slash or anything like that. Preferably no crossovers either but parodies or humor are find by me! Have fun...
Categories: Off Topic, Book-verse, Movie-verse Characters: Other Canon Character
Summary: Horror of horrors, each member of the Fellowship decides to bring a pet... What kind of creatures are they? Do they actually have world-savin' assets? Or do they just serve to make a long epic Disney-cute?
Categories: Book-verse, Movie-verse Characters: None
Summary: Alright: Your mission, and you have no choice but to accept it, is to write me a short story about the sort of pranks Elladan and Elrohir/ Merry and Pippin/ anyone else you can think of got up to when they were younger. NO dodgy stuff please, keep it G or PG. Bonus points for female characters involved in the scheming. No OC's please.
