LOTR Challenges 5 by judy

The February Challenge

The February Challenge stories, with the theme “Light and Shadow” has now been posted. Each story was to be a gapfiller, with an assigned gap. We still have a few stories which will be posted late--we will add those when they are posted.

The February Challenge

Journey Divided by Larner After breaking with the rest of the Fellowship, what choices face those who take the eastern route?

Learning the Degrees of Darkness by nancylea For people like me who have trouble understanding and living within the "powers that be's" rule and guidelines, sometimes the nicest thing I call them is 'THEY'. (And sometimes I just loose my inner orc.)

Aldudénië by Celeritas Olórin finds himself at a loss after the Darkening of Valinor

Thick Skin, Soft Heart by Golden Serious times are ahead, Gandalf knows, but Pippin just doesn't seem to understand.

Three Drabbles by Pearl Took Drabble 1 - Merry and Fredegar on the way to Crickhollow. Drabble 2 - Pippin liking to be out at night. Drabble 3 - Aragorn and the Hobbits in Bree.

Encounter in Ithilien by Dreamflower Mablung has never seen anyone like this before... [The link leads to Part I, links at the bottom lead to Parts II, III and the Epilogue.]

I hope you will check out the stories, and let the authors know how you liked them!

And authors, remember that late entries are always welcome!
