Discussing: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

Hi all. Death-fics: most of us have a love/hate relationship with them. No one really wants to read or write about the passing of one's favourite characters, but, in the end, the love we have for them leads us to this dark place. So I had this idea for a challenge: Write about any of the following subjects.
  • The passing of one of the canon characters that is not already described in the books.
  • How the death of any canon character affects his/her immediate family and/or the rest of the world.
  • The thought of, say, orc no.2546754 during the siege of Minas Tirith when he sees a boulder about to land on his head. Any characters, as long as it involves around-death introspection: regrets, prayers, thoughts for loved ones.
  • We know where Elves go after death. What about Men, Dwarves and Hobbits?
Any takers? Werecat

Re: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

I've got an idea I've been kicking around that would fit this challenge. Count me in.

 

 

Re: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

Yeah! We have not five, but SIX takers so far. So, how long should we keep this open? How about setting Halloween as a closing date? Werecat

 

 

Re: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

I've got half a story written about a (probably AU) character death. This will give me the incentive to finish it - it usually makes me too depressed. Count me in. Jay

 

 

Re: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

Oh - and of course there is my very first story, which starts with a character death (definitely AU this time) and looks at the thoughts and memories of those left. As it was the first thing I ever wrote, it's not my best work, but I'll polish it a little. Jay

 

 

Re: When we have shuffled off this mortal coil

Yay! Go Werecat! I'll go and set this up, with Halloween as the closer date. Watch this space. Allie edit: Challenge and discussion!
