Answering the Call ~ by docmon

FIRST PLACE in the 2008 MEFA Awards!

A series of AU vignettes in which each member of the Fellowship hears the call of the Ring - and answers it. My take on the big What-If. Varying degrees of angst, drama, action, and perhaps a little more angst.

I can't thank Thundera Tiger enough for all her help and patience with this story. Without her guidance and encouragement, this story would never have seen the light of day, nor would I have considered posting any of my writing.

Of course there are thousands of stories out there, and I have only read a fraction of them. NOT intended to be a scientific survey! My picks of stories that I feel are particularly well written, stylistically interesting, lyrical... Regardless of era, topic or character.

Why This Story?

In a series of brief but compelling chapters, Docmon manages to capture a whole galaxy of alternative universes, with spare well written prose that is an excellent example of why 'showing' is much better than 'telling'.
