Summary: No one really, truly knows who it was that decided Elves have pointy ears so let's play with that part of their anatomy for some writerly fun. (Okay, bad pun, sorry. :P) Anyway, on the subject of Elf ears, the story can be about how Elvish ears evolved to be pointy or how other races are jealous of their pointy ears, or anything you can think of, so long as the plot centers around Elf ears. AU, Actor fics, crossovers, movie verse, book verse all are welcome.

Summary: Legolas is the King’s long-term lover. They have a terrible row, Legolas is angry and sulky, and wants to do something mean and nasty to get back at Aragorn – which turns into getting into the rather surprised Steward’s bed. But just as Legolas’ spite is satisfied and he is ready to forget about the whole episode, he comes to learn that Faramir is – has long been – secretly and desperately in love with him. What a mess…! What to do?

Summary: While going through two Disney theme parks I got to thinking about what would happen if elves (especially the twins or Haldir) suddenly woke up to find themselves in a theme park (it's amazing what "It's a small world" does to the brain) Fantasy or Sci-Fi conventions could also be used instead of a theme park. Have fun! Totally AU, mostly for giggles and gags.

But then, two years later, Faramir returns entirely unharmed – only different… It turns out he had ended up in the Golden Wood, where he had come to know the Elves – and learned many an interesting thing from them, some of which he is eager to not only tell about, but demonstrate to his overjoyed brother.

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: Quite simply a fic that is set in the First Age but preferably not Elrond or galadriel reminiscing, an LOTR character going to the First Age from the future. Enjoy - Li
Categories: Book-verse Characters: None
Summary: With so MANY Legolas fans, there really should be more incest with Thranduil. I issue a challenge for any kind of fic involving incest between Legolas and Thranduil, as long as it doesn't involve soulmate-y love. Molestation, rape, lust, longing, curiousity, loneliness, desperation, anything but: No "marriage" type love. Father-son love + sexual activity = okay.
Categories: None Characters: Legolas, Thranduil
Summary: The Steward goes to the Wood of Greenleaves on a diplomatic mission to discuss the details of the Elven settlement that King Thranduil’s son wants to set up in Ithilien. Much as Faramir is fascinated by the Fair Folk, he knows little of them and is much worried their ways may be so different from those of Men, that it will be difficult for the two peoples to comfortably coexist. Sensing his unease, the receiving side (which may include Prince Legolas himself, if you like) eagerly sets to eliminating all gaps in Faramir’s knowledge of the Elven life-style.
Categories: Lord of the Rings Slash, Book Verse Slash Characters: Faramir, Legolas, Thranduil
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: I'm sure many of you have dreamed of/ read fanfictions about traveling to Middle Earth. But what if part of Middle Earth came to you. Like a country or land. Or maybe you made a forest to look like Lothlorien. You choose. Anything along these general lines. Try to keep it cannon and clean.
Categories: None Characters: None
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: Must include the phrase "You did what, With who, For how many jellybeans!?" Feel free to be as silly as you want. Anything goes. Be creative! :P
Categories: Movie-verse, Book-verse Characters: None
Summary: Everyone needs a good laugh now and again. I challenge you to make a hilarious 1-10 paragraph story. I don't want to see any graphic sex, or anything like that. (Because I don't see what's so funny about that..) Get cookin'!! (Oh, well, I guess the better saying would be: 'Get writing!' XD)
Categories: Lord of the Rings Slash, Book-verse Characters: None
Summary: So basically, an immigrant from a poor country somehow finds themselves on the Lord of the Rings set. You should try to include the hardships faced by the main character and the changes that occur physically and emotionally for them.

Summary: One night, Steward Faramir wakes up with a jolt to find himself tied to his own bed: blindfolded, gagged, naked and – oh, Valar! – in the company of another man. Faramir’s initial indignation and anger are soon replaced by fear, once he understands this is no silly joke and the stranger has quite serious purposes – and Faramir can neither free himself nor call for help. However, once he stops struggling, he realises his guest has no intention of hurting him, and is in fact being rather gentle and patient. So, given his lack of options, Faramir cooperates, and actually quite enjoys himself… But he has not an inkling who his lover is – even when the scarf from his mouth is removed to let them kiss and he begs for a name, the stranger gives no reply. Faramir cannot even tell whether it is Man or Elf. He has a smooth face, but so do many Men in Minas Tirith (now, let us assume that Aragorn, since Professor T had never said otherwise, does shave at least once in a while – so technically it could be him also). Faramir never gets another visit – but has to admit that he would actually like to. So here is the mystery part: he wants to find out who it was he had shared his bed with, and ask him some questions and possibly, well, do some things. I would like there to be some good suspense, preferably three likely candidates, each with some points in favour of him being Faramir’s nightly guest – please keep us guessing until the very end. And, well, how things develop after the discovery is up to you.

Summary: I want a AU Gandalf/Pippin slash story at least 10,000 words long, or longer if possible, where Gandalf realizes he's in love with his Fool of a Took after saving him from Denathor in the Return of the King and has to deal with what he thinks is unrequited love for Peregrin Took. Eventual Gandalf/Pippin requited love please!

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: The wall separating Boromir’s and Faramir’s bedrooms is not as thick as Boromir would have liked. His little brother has a rather eventful personal life, constantly shagging someone, or perhaps getting shagged – Boromir would rather not know. Usually the big brother grins and bears it. But one night, when all the moans, yelps, screams of “faster, faster!” and “fuck me hard, Captain Faramir!” won’t stop even after three in the morning, Boromir decides he has had enough. But as the door to Faramir’s bedroom is opened after Boromir’s furious banging, the heir’s ire abates a little – for he is greeted by the sight of his brother in full glory: unclothed, blushed and sweaty, raven hair in a mess, and with an impressive arousal to finish the picture. Moreover, behind him on the bed Boromir can see two young cadets, fresh but not innocent at all... Still, Boromir tries shouting – but Faramir is only grinning broadly in return. Yes, he already has an idea how to solve this conflict of interest…

Summary: All Gondorian noblemen learn the High Tongue, at least the basics. But the Steward’s sons should know it well, so a real Elf is hired as a tutor. He is the first of the Fair Folk to be seen in Gondor for ages, and attracts lots of attention – Faramir in particular finds him entirely fascinating… Naturally, the young lord ends up getting a bit more than the education his father is paying for. Boromir finds out and does not approve… Why exactly does he not approve? Mm, you decide.

Summary: As a father, Thranduil can be a little overbearing. Legolas constantly feels the need to be perfect and 'princely' in everything he does. One day, while journeying about knocking off orcs for fun, he meets up with a roving group of entertainers.

Alas! The leading lady breaks her leg and cannot act. (You can see where this is going, right?) Legolas discovers there's a something perversely enjoyable about dressing up as a girl and acting on stage in the many villages of men they pass through. Thranduil would have a fit if he ever found out!

This goes on for many years until, one midsummer's eve, Legolas is giving a fabulous performance when who should show up but Elladan and Elrohir!

They've never met, but Legolas instantly realises who the twin peredhel are. Legolas must make a hasty escape before he is discovered!

Unfortunately for him, the twins have seen the incredibly beautful lead 'actress' on stage and are desperate to win 'her' favour!

(Extra credit if you manage to include Elrond worrying over his sons' infatuation with a 'mortal woman!')

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.
