Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to pick one of the below prompts, and write a story within the limits here described.

  • Eowyn, old age, rides out defying arthritis, leading the household's soldiery and servants to fight the flooding of a village at Anduin's shores (a small tributary coming down from Emyn Arnen has risen due to melt water spring floods) which has sprawled over the limits set for security due to a recent massive influx of settlers. Faramir is away to Mordor's north to settle a conflict between Easterlings and Ithilien settlers. Describe her thoughts during the ride or describe her organization of the rescue. Please describe her as the Lady of Ithilien.

  • Rosie is resistant to giving her firstborn a strange Elvish name -- until Sam explains to her what Elanor means... and the beauty it represents.

  • Frodo, baby sitting toddler Pippin at Bag End, must keep the child calm and entertained during a thunderstorm.

  • Somewhere in Hollin, Gandalf tells Boromir something about Faramir that Boromir never knew before.

  • Pippin and Gimli share the watch one night -- what do they talk about?

  • I would love to see the King arriving at Pippin's first celebration as Thain. Oh boy . . . would that be a party!

  • Eol's forging of Anglachel.

  • Eldarion's first official act as king after Elessar's death.

  • The first meeting of Tarannon and Berúthiel and her cats

  • Among those kneeling to the hobbits at the coronation is Elrond. Elrond hasn't knelt to anyone since the First Age, when Gil-Galad -- who perished in battle with Sauron -- was his lord and king. What are his thoughts?

  • Where did Frodo get seven signatures in red ink for the will he left behind when he went to the Havens and left everything to Sam?

  • Faramir unlocks the treasury of Minas Tirith for Aragorn, and the new king realizes the wealth at his command... and how it can best be used for the good of the city and its people.

  • "Many of the characters married late, or chose a spouse their parents didn't approve of. Write a conversation between a parent and child about their choice of whom to marry, or their refusal to make that choice."
