The February Challenge will have the theme "Hearts and Flowers". Stories need not have a romantic theme but should contain reference to the heart and particular flower allocated to each writer. Elements for the challenge will be flowers . . . some particular to Tolkien's universe and some not.

The February challenge stories may be posted to the moderation queue at any time prior to the reveal date, and will be revealed on 28, February, 2018. Please tag your story "Challenge: Hearts and Flowers" and “February: 2018”.

2018 January Potluck Challenge

My sincere apologies for this very late posting of the Potluck Challenge! Due to the lateness of this challenge, the due date will extend into February. However, we will still have February's challenge, hopefully with a more timely announcement!

Welcome to the 2017 January Potluck Challenge! For those of you who are new to this challenge, it's where we (1) give you a chance to finish up and post any challenges you did not finish during 2017, or (2) give you a chance at some of the prompts that did not get used during the past year or (3) both.

To join in, simply choose your prompt and claim it by leaving a comment on this post. More than one person may claim a prompt. In addition, you are not limited to just one prompt. You may claim as many as you like; we do ask that you put each claim in a separate comment, as it will help us keep track of things better. If you want to, you may claim a prompt, finish it and then claim another. You may also comment to say if you are finishing up a story from previous challenges. As the mods notice claims coming in, we will strike them from the list, if that month calls for it.

Your stories will be due in the moderator's queue by Friday, February 9, and will be unlocked on Monday, February 12. Please tag your story "month: 2018 January" and "annual challenge: potluck". Please remember to use the following header template (also found on the community profile page), and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.



If you have any questions, please comment here or e-mail the mods at manypaths@lotrgfic.com.

Recipient's name:Larner (blslarner)
Title: The Search for the Perfect Gift
Rating: G
Request: "I'd love to see Frodo asking for advice regarding the best Yule present to give someone he loves, and receiving absolutely the worst suggestions possible." (I hope this fills your request, even though some of the suggestions aren't awful. Just not right.)
Author's notes: This story is a drabble set of nineteen 100 word drabbles, not including the titles, sub-titles or drabble numbers. Frodo is 21, just entering adolescence for hobbits, while Sam and Folco are nine, about the maturity of a human 6-year-old, but with three years of extra experience.
Summary: Frodo worries about the perfect Yule gift for Uncle Bilbo, now that he's been adopted by him.

Author name: Linaewen
Recipient's name: Shirebound
Title: Special Delivery
Rating: G
Request: After the War of the Ring, there were probably many letters and packages sent between the Shire and Gondor/Rohan. Tolkien writes of a Shire Postmaster and Messenger Service. What did the Shire Post delivery-hobbits -- especially those who still might not accept that a King had returned or who had never wondered about happenings outside the Shire -- think about or react to Royal Mail? Did their families even believe them when told about it?
Summary: A special delivery package from Gondor arrives at the Hobbiton Post Office, creating a stir among the delivery-hobbits working there.Special DeliveryCollapse )
Author name: Shirebound
Recipient's name: Dreamflower02
Title: The Memory Tree
Rating: G
Request: “The first Yule that Bilbo and Frodo spend together after Bilbo adopts Frodo. It can be at Bag End or they can be visiting other kinfolk.”
Word Count: 1512
Summary: After many years, Bilbo and Frodo resume a sweet tradition.

Author name: Talullah Red
Recipient's name: Linaewen
Title: Sixteen

Author name:Keiliss
Recipient's name:Red Lasbelin
Title:The Long and Winding Road
Rating: PG
Request: 5A Elves sailing with a focus on Imladris elves. Can either be at the Havens, or final days in Imladris. Glorfindel's my fave.
Author's notes: Surprise! Here you go dear, more about people, less about plot, just the way (sort of) you try and get me to write them and I wail and say ‘but where is it meant to GO?’ I hope you like this, it is offered with much love. Have a blessed 2018.
Title courtesy of The Beatles.
Summary: Conversations before sailing – Galadriel is resentful, Elrond is worried, and in no universe where I have ever written will Erestor be happy about leaving Middle-earth.

Author name: Red Lasbelin
Recipient's name: Talullah Red
Title: Wine and Mistletoe

Request: A happy Yule in Imladris. I'd love it to be happy, peaceful and sweet and maybe, even, slightly humorous, if that works out for you.
Author's notes: (optional)
Beta: keiliss
Summary: Glorfindel wears mistletoe.
