LOTR Challenges 3 by judy

May Story Challenge: Bunny Hutch

The May Story Challenge is somewhat different than our usual: we had eighteen participants contributing 65 different plot bunnies, for our first "Bunny Hutch" challenge! Your element for this challenge will be one of those bunnies!

To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post, and I will send you your elements. Please specify if you have any preferences as to which Race and Age you would like to write about. Or if you would like to take your chances on something unexpected, just say "random".

The May challenge stories will be due Monday, May 14th, and will be revealed on Wednesday, May 16th. Please remember to use this header template from the community profile page:



The theme is "Bunny Hutch", and the element will be the bunny you are sent. Paste the bunny next to "Elements". Please remember to put the story title and your name in the subject line (e.g. Frodo's Big Adventure by MarySue). Tag your story "bunny hutch" and " '12 may"

If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com, virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com, or celeritassagittae@gmail.com.

I hope we'll have lots of participants for our May challenge!

May Art Challenge: Sky

The May Art Challenge theme is "Sky". Any media is welcome!

Your element will be something associated with the sky: e.g. clouds, birds, rain, etc.

All art must be rated G or PG. See our ratings guidelines here! After the challenge, art will be archived at Many Paths to Tread.

To request your elements, please leave a comment to this post, and we will send you your elements. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that we can send you your elements. Or you can email the mods at aelfwina@gmail.com, virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com, or celeritassagittae@gmail.com.

Upload pictures of your project to your favorite photo-sharing site (Photo-bucket, Flickr, LJ scrapbook, etc.), and then post the picture to the community by Thursday, May 17.

Include the following header:



Please put the following in the subject line: Art: Title of piece by your name (e.g. Art: Portrait of an Elf by MarySue). This is VERY important, in case there are also stories in the moderator's queue, so that we mods don't get the entries confused. Tag your entry "art: sky".

We hope we'll have lots of artists participate!

Thank you!

I would like to thank everyone who sent in bunnies for the May challenge! We had eighteen people who sent in a total of 65 plot bunnies, ranging from the beginning of Arda through the Fourth Age, and including most of the races of Middle-earth from Elves and Hobbits to Dwarves and Men (even breaking the latter down to Gondorians, Rohirrim, Numenoreans and so forth).

I hope that we'll have lots of takers for this challenge! There are many very intriguing and creative story ideas waiting for someone to come and claim them.
