The October Challenge: Halloween/Harvest Theme

The October Challenge will have a theme of Halloween or Harvest. (In other words, the story setting should reflect that time of year.) Your element will be a quotation from canon, and all quotations will be about something frightening or scary.

Stories will be due the weekend of October 17th, and will be revealed on Monday the 20th.

To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post. Please indicate if you want your quotation to come from The Hobbit, LotR, The Silm or The Children of Hurin. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email me at

I hope that we will have lots of participants for October’s challenge!

The Yule Fic Exchange!

Hi Everyone! Yep, it's already time to start thinking about the big Yule Fic Exchange!! Remember? The one where you may request a story you'd like to have written and in return, accept someone else's request for a story. We will very shortly have a Poll up to ask for opinions on two things, but since Barbara is doing that piece I will wait for her to explain it.

Please let us know if you wish to join in this year's exchange asap! Since this type of challenge requires a great deal of coordinating, we need to get started.

Thanks, and we hope many of you will join in. Fic exchanges are a lot of fun!
Please see the guidelines under the cut for more information.
