1. Series Information

In early 2006, the (lovingly named) "Aragorn Angst" Yahoo group started giving weekly prompts. The rules were quite simple: tie in the given prompt word in a ficlet less than 500 words. No higher than R, no slash, no 'Mary Sues'.

Though Aragorn is not required in all of them, it was my own personal goal to tie him into every single prompt. In the following weeks, I began following the prompts. RL took its course, and I fell quite behind in writing. However, I have been writing them more often, and finally decided that my writing has improved enough for me to post on this most esteemed website.

The majority of the ficlets are and will continue to be in book-verse with (perhaps) small elements of movie-verse mixed in here and there. The chapters are labeled in a "Prompt: Fic Title" format. I break the '500 word' rule a few times when the muses become wild, but otherwise the rest follow the prompt 'rules'.

While the challenge did start two and a half years ago, and I am about only a third of the way through the ever-growing prompt-list, I will continue to write when the muses are available. Perhaps even a few of you will see the growth in my writing that I have seen myself (let's just say that my very first writings on this website were done in my last days of middle school and leave it at that).
