"I," said the second, evil eyes red, "I gave you the tale of Rohan's undead "While tomorrow's text lay still unread. "Heh," said the second, evil eyes red. "I," said the third, with pearly claws fine "I gave you the tale of Halbarad's line "So that you forgot your traffic court fine "Oops," said the third, with pearly claws fine. "I," said the fourth, of fearful fang, "I whispered that story about Dúrin's Bane "And distracted, you fell off your bike yet again "Ow," said the third, of fearful fang. Thus every beast by some bite fell Did inopportunely my attention compel And forced my pen its tale to tell So writers, ware the nuzgûl's spell! Hear the midi version here

Challenges: Story Discussions - 1131 posts

This is a catch-all forum designed to allow you, the reader and writer, to follow and discuss all entries into a given challenge.

As new challenges come along, I will link them to this forum. Within this forum, each challenge is listed in its own thread. Then within that thread, you may discuss any and all stories entered for that challenge. This prevents the endless multiplication of discussions devoted to one challenge by allowing us to simply add threads to this one.

Of course, you may always create your own personal story forum for your challenge entry, but I thought this might be a useful tool for us in that we could then more easily discuss them here and in the context of other fics that answer the same challenge.
