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?

Summary: What would happen if Frodo got to Mount Doom but didn't get the chance to throw the ring in?

You can include AU, graphic sex, anything that blows your skirt up! Just please! No slash!

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: Faramir discovers his brother is having an affair with Queen Arwen. What is Faramir to do? The new Steward of Gondor Boromir II and Queen Arwen Undomiel have a thing. Boromir and Arwen? Yes. Whoever told you he is not her type? Of course he is. He is gorgeous and irresistible. He just is. And he makes her happy in bed. So there. No further discussion on this point. Where does Faramir fit into the plot? Faramir is the only one who knows about this relationship. Maybe he knew about it before it had even turned into a full-blown affair, or maybe he found out some time later – up to you. Question is, what is he going to do? He has his duty to his king, his duty to his brother, to his queen, to the state, to the good people of Gondor. Perhaps, although this is facultative, he himself has feeling for one of the parties involved…

Summary: would like to see a Glorfindel/Eowyn pairing. No rape but other then that anything goes. rated r-nc-17. Eowyn should be a strong female none of the insecurities that usually happen when she is paired with an elf. I dont want an emo self depreciating Glorfindel either.

Maybe a duel between the two but whats the wager? 1-5 chapters short attention span. put book verse but i dont care which way it goes.

Summary: I grow weary of hearing of the exploits of the elves. To be sure, they hold a special place in the history of Middle Earth, yet my heart bleeds for those races as noble who gain not the recognition they deserve. Thus I charge ye: go out and write of the lesser known races: the dwarves; the hobbits; the dragons; the balrogs; the maiar; and, indeed, the valar themselves. As token of my appreciation of this service, I shall leave lovely long reviews for all those who rise to the challenge. Now, go ye forth and write!

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...

Summary:

While living with her husband was wonderful, Celebrían often longed for the home in which she grew up: Lothlórien. Arwen visited there as well. As mother and daughter, isn't it reasonable to assume they traveled together? If so, Arwen might have been with her mother during the infamous orc attack. Give an account of the event as if she were. Pick and choose one or more options from this list to incorporate into your story.

1. Considering her beauty was only surpassed by Lúthien, why and how did Arwen get away?

2. An elven-warrior' in charge of Celebrían's safety had his entire life change drastically because of this one event.

3. While the event itself should be the dominant focus of the story, don't recount the event itself. Either:
A. Show everything leading up to it. The end of the story is Celebrían's capture.
B. Account for the results of the tragedy. Some possibilities include: end the story with Celebrían's departure or show how her children learn to cope with what happened.

4. "Love can move mountains," but that doesn't make the mountains simple to move. How does Elrond's love bring Celebrían from the brink of death? Why wasn't it enough to keep her in Middle Earth? How does it influence him after she leaves?

5. After Arwen decides to take the path of a mortal life she recalls her last days with her mother. In this light does she regret her choice?

6. How does Celebrían take the news of Arwen's decision to remain in Middle Earth? If she could change her decision and delay sailing west in light of this knowledge, would she?

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

Summary: What if a Shape shifter appeared in Middle earth? What would the Arda residents think of a Human that can shift form to a wolf/jaguar/eagle/horse/ect you get the idea. Would they see an interesting friend or a dangerous threat? Or better yet what would he/she think of them? It is a free run from there. Use any Characters or places you wish. It can be a crossover or OC. A love, hate, wild, or easy going story. Give me your best shot, show me what you got!

Summary: The ring turned out to be a lesser ring after all and was just a decoy to get the forces of light all in one place. What happens afterward?

Summary: Take a plot from your favorite movie, book, TV show, play, whatever! and use Tolkien characters to retell the story, your own way. Be creative! Come up with a catchy title that's a play on the original. Create OCs to fill in blanks. Change the ending for the better (or worse!). But please, no NC-17s!

Example:

Pirates of Belfalas
A cursed ship sails the waters of Belfalas, destroying settlements... and she never leaves any survivors. Eowyn, the neice of the king of Rohan, is plunged headfirst into a world of cursed gold, undead pirates, forbidden love, and adventure with the charming Captain Aragorn. (Pirates of the Caribbean)

Summary: Young Faramir takes refuge in the Golden Wood. Young Faramir (make him as young as 10 or 11 if you like), being chased by Orcs, or fleeing from abuse at home, eventually finds himself on the outskirts of Lothlorien. He is captured by the vigilant Elven guards (who are not particularly fond of strangers, as we remember…) and brought for questioning to the Lord and Lady of the Wood. But Galadriel sees he is but a frightened unfortunate boy, and takes pity on him. She places him under her protection, and he stays in Lorien in a position of something like her page. So Faramir’s youth passes with the Elves, he learns their tongue, their ways and their arts, and grows to fit in quite well. By the time he is around 16-18, he also grows to be very fair, alluring and provocatively unspoilt – and the Lady does not fail to notice that… So she thinks that to make his education complete, she ought to teach him some other things besides walking the tight-rope and shooting a squirrel in the eye. The lessons turn out so enjoyable for both parties, that Faramir soon turns into her habitual lover. Now, Celeborn… He finds it all very amusing for a while, and does not begrudge his wife her current entertainment: Galadriel is an eccentric woman, after all, and this mortal boy she has selected for a sex-toy is, admittedly, a commendable choice. But at some point the Elven-lord begins to get annoyed and even jealous (of whom…?) – and decides to take action. The term ‘action’, of course, has a multitude of meanings… Where it all goes from there is entirely up to you. Bonus points for having each part of the story presented from one of the three character’s POV, giving different perspectives on the situation – although of course I’d be more than thrilled to get a classical third-person narration as well.
