Challenge Details

Has anyone ever read someone else's work and liked it so much you wanted to write more? A sequel, or prequel perhaps?

Write something (prequel, sequel, missing scene, poem, drabble etc) based on a story by another author. It can be fun to explore other writers' universes, character interpretations, ideas etc.

A couple of ground rules:

* Please ensure that you have the inspiring author's permission to use or refer to his/her story. You may want to send a draft of your work to him/her for their approval

*Please identify the inspiring story and credit its author in your work. This can be done either in the story summary or in an author's note

Inspired by PlasticChevy's wonderful epic, The Captain and the King, this is an unofficial "missing scene" regarding Boromir and Gil. Written with author approval. Rated for explicit het. 2005 MEFA Award Winner: 1st place, Gondor - Original Characters category. Though I give the award to Chevy, as she created the OC in question.

Avon - Adrah's Eyes: Salvation or Pain
Adult Audience
Last Updated: 03 Oct 03
A drabble of Flick's lovely Adrah's Eyes, drabbled with permission of course. Now, there are almost 7 000 words in Adrah's Eyes so needless to say I've had to leave out all the good stuff - the beautiful descriptions and lovely characterisations. All I can say is - if you haven't read it go and read it.
