LotR Challenges 7 by Dreamflower

January 2014 Potluck Challenge

Once again we are having our annual January Potluck Challenge. This is your opportunity to finish up an unfinished challenge from 2013, or you can choose a leftover prompt from one of our last year's challenges. To participate, leave a comment to either claim the number of the prompt you wish to write, or in the case of April, July, and August, follow the instructions to leave your comment. The prompts are behind the cut. We mods will try to strike out the claimed numbers as soon as we can, but do take a moment to check the comments, just in case someone else has already claimed it before we can strike it out. You can also leave a comment to mention if you decide to finish up a story you were already signed up for last year.

Stories are due in the queue the weekend of January 20, and will be revealed on Monday, January 23.

This is the beginning of a brand new year, so I hope we will have a LOT of participants this month!

Treasures by Linaewen

Author name: Linaewen
Recipient's name: Iavalir
Title: Treasures
Rating: G
Request: (4) Dís and Balin as small children and playmates, before Smaug attacked their home.
Author's notes: Both Dís and Balin refused to remain small children as I was writing this, so they are somewhat older in this story than the prompt requests -- but hopefully their friendship established at a young age will still be evident and satisfactory!
Summary: Dís receives a special gift from her childhood friend Balin.
