Ides of March Onlist Challenge, The
"In the early hours the Witch-king breaks the Gates of the City. Denethor burns himself on a pyre. The horn of the Rohirrim are heard at cockcrow. Battle of the Pelennor. Theoden is slain. Aragorn raises the standard of Arwen. Frodo and Samwise escape [from Cirith Ungol] and begin their journey north along the Morgai. Battle under the trees in Mirkwood. Thranduil repels the forces of Dol Guldur. Second assault on Lothlorien."So pick any one of these events, or any other that happened on March 15, and write a story about it. The only catch is, your story cannot be told from the POV of any of the following characters: Any member of the Fellowship, Denethor, Faramir, Theoden, Eomer, Eowyn The idea is to look at these well-known events through the eyes of someone other than the main characters.

- In honour of the Battle of the Pelennor, members of HA wrote and posted vignettes about the events of March 15, 3019 TA. The only catch was stories had to be from the POV or focus on the experience of one of the less common characters -- anyone except a member of the Fellowship, Denethor, Faramir, Theoden, Eomer, and Eowyn. All stories were written over the course of two days.
