78. 2014 February Challenge: Fanon-busters by Rhapsody

[Reviews - 8]

The February Challenge has the theme "Fanon-busters". The Tolkien fandom and fan fiction have existed for decades and, in that time, have accumulated their share of fanons. From much-beloved (but noncanonical) pairings, to aspects of a character's appearance, to traits and historical events of a specific group or family, we all regularly encounter and most of us use fanons in our own writing and art. For February's "February Fanon-buster" challenge, select a much-loved or much-loathed fanon and write a story that does the opposite of that fanon. Three extra elements were assigned to the author to be included in the story.

90. 2015 February Challenge: International Fanworks Day by Rhapsody

[Reviews - 2]

The February 2015 challenge was in honour of International Fanworks Day. This challenge was to write a story about something that someone in Middle-earth might be a fan of. For example, does Maglor have a problem with fangirls? Does Aragorn have a weakness for First Age poetry? Do famous hobbit cooks have a following? Do some people of Minas Tirith make up stories about the Royal Family? Or any other sort of fannish scenario you can think of. Prompts will be based on your source, so if you comment, please indicate if you are going to base the story in The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings or some other book by Tolkien, or an adaptation of his work such as the movies. The prompt given was a character from that work; but the author did not need to feature the character in his or her story, but he/she a mention was required.

92. 2015 April Challenge: Lyrical Love, Short form by Rhapsody

[Reviews - 3]

The 2015 April Challenge had the theme "Lyrical Love". The twist was that it could be any sort of love except romantic love. It can be love for a family member, a friend, an object, a place or an idea or anything else--but not for a romantic relationship! In honor of the fact that April is National Poetry Month, we asked the participants to try their hand at a short poem. No form could be longer than 15 lines, and if possible shorter.

Angwëverse by WendWriter

[Reviews - 0]

Angwë is one of my two recurring fallen Maiar. His tragedy is that he only wanted something simple of his own, but he forgot that the thing you own can own you. He eventually becomes the Balrog of Moria, in a saga that has got him a fan club of his own. His story begins at the Creation and ends... well, we know where it ends. The action takes place in various places in Arda and in Valinor.

Artíreverse. by WendWriter

[Reviews - 1]

Artíre the double agent came into being because I wanted to give the Watcher in the Water a backstory. I made him a lover of drama and conflict - observing, not taking part, who was inveigled by Sauron into taking Melkor's side against the Ainur. This creates a feud that bubbles for ages when Sauron becomes paranoid about the possibility of Artíre's seeking revenge. The pre-emptive strikes Sauron makes bring the Watcher's wrath upon him, and kicks off a cycle of hate that wreaks havoc throughout Middle-earth.
