Summary: Faramir is mortally wounded or otherwise severely ill, and everyone is already mourning him. Thinking he has nothing to lose, the Steward finally confesses to the King a long concealed secret. Perhaps, his love for Aragorn – perhaps, something else. But, miraculously, he lives! However, Faramir is not sure how exactly he is going to live, given what he has told his lord…
Categories: None Characters: Aragorn, Faramir
Summary: We all know that Legolas promised to visit the caves of Helm's Deep with Gimli. Well, I want to know what happened there. Anything goes. Slash is accepted, even encouraged. :)
Categories: Book-verse Characters: Gimli, Legolas
Summary: One of the things that annoyed me about the LOTR movies was that they couldn't put everything from the books into the scripts—also that the movies were not entirely true to the books, but that's another age-long rant. The challenge is to take a scene that was either omitted/changed in the movies (e.g. Arwen in the place of Glorfindel, Tom Bombadil) or not acted out in the original texts (e.g. the parting of Elrond and Arwen) from the book and put it in its place in the movies. It MUST follow canon, though you can write it in screenplay format if you wish. Any characters, any ratings, you know the drill.

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: Which one of the character tell a story or something that happened in he/she past. Might something had happened and the character start to tell his tale. AU is fine by me. OOC if needed as well. Have fun in the writing, it is all that matters.

Summary: Faramir is in a relationship with one of the Elven twins – problem is, he can’t figure out with which one… The brothers are entirely alike in looks, voice and bearing, and he just cannot tell them apart. Perhaps, there is some small detail, like one of the Elves having an intimate piercing, or a tattoo done in special ink that only becomes visible when, you know… So Faramir would realise his mistake only when things already get pretty far down the road to bliss. The Steward is annoyed and perplexed, because he wants to be serious, and considers himself in love – but can he truly be in love when he cannot even properly identify the object of his passion…? He fails to understand the brothers’ motives either. Maybe they are frivolous about the whole thing and are just having fun taking turns jumping into his bed – or maybe they are actually having a competition over him, who can tell? Make it light and funny, or seriously angsty – up to you.

Summary: Oh, Valar! There is a Dragon in the White Mountains! Hardly had the realm of Gondor had time to recover after the Great War, when this new bane came out of the blue. This particular Dragon, like most others, does not find it enough to simply burn down villages, eat the villagers and hoard treasure in his lair. What he loves most of all is malicious mischief for its own sake – so when a host of brave knights (some of whom all of us are well acquainted with) comes to slay him, he wants to have a bit of fun and instead of simply frying the foolish men, casts some wicked spells on them. You can go for classics, with people forgetting who they are and running around until they end up in strange relationships – or go ahead and think up something entirely different.

Summary: Precisely as the title says. A wee Gimli, perhaps? Tiny Thorin? Toddling Oin and Gloin? Whatever the length, make it cute and fun.
