She wondered if the Science Fiction and Fantasy Re-enactment Society was making a mistake with this year's Christmas play. Surely Lúthien shouldn't look like, to put it politely, an exotic dancer? Or Beren like a cheap version of Robin Hood? That they couldn't afford new costumes shouldn't be an excuse. She'd rather have been Leia again, but her suggestion had been ignored. Okay, John's Jabba costume was getting too shabby, but surely they could have painted it?
Sighing, she put on the costume, and walked on to the stage. At least the crowd would be enthusiastic, all twenty of them.
Written for the December 6, 2007 "There and Back again" community Advent calendar cue (a rather wellknown, though somewhat... errmmm... unfortunate painting of Beren and Lúthien by Rowena Morrill).
