LotR Challenges 7 by Dreamflower

Tree and Flower Awards on Hiatus

It may have come to the attention of some of you that we have not announced the Tree and Flower Awards for Many Paths to Tread this year.

Because all the mods have been having to deal with many goings-on in their Real Lives, of various sorts, the awards will be on hiatus this year.

However, keep an eye open; we are planning on revamping them to make them easier on everyone. There will be a poll coming up soon, to help us gather ideas on how we can best do this.

Anniversary Challenge for Many Paths to Tread

Many Paths to Tread Archive, Seventh Anniversary 7X7 Review Challenge!

This year we will celebrate Many Paths to Tread's Seventh Birthday with a 7X7 Review Challenge! Beginning on Wednesday, July 27, our anniversary, and for the following seven weeks, you are challenged to post the following reviews at the MPTT site. (Reviews MUST be posted on the Archive; reviews placed elsewhere will not count.) You do have to be a member of the Archive to review.

Seven stories by seven different authors
Seven new stories posted during the past year (from 7/26/15 to 7/26/16)
Seven stories in seven different Genres (Definitions of Genres may be found here
Seven stories about seven different Characters
Seven stories set in seven different Places
Seven different stories recommended to you by someone else. (We will make a post for people to put recs, but the recommendations do not have to come from there; they can be recommended by anyone.)
Seven old stories posted during the first year of the MPTT Archive: (from 7/26/09 to 7/26/10)

You may complete each challenge in any order you choose. A post will be made, and you can comment there with the names of the stories you reviewed as you complete each challenge.

You do not have to complete all the challenges, but it is our hope that many of you will try. You have from Wednesday July 27 until Wednesday September 7 to finish the reviews (Reviews will be counted from the time-stamp on the review). You will have until September 14 to make all your comments at the Challenge Post.

Post ONLY your list of reviewed stories (links are appreciated but not required) at the Challenge Post. Make a separate comment for each challenge, and put which challenge in the subject line. Please post any questions or comments about the challenge to THIS POST right here! Off-topic comments at the Challenge Post will be deleted.

Recommendations for the Many Paths to Tread Anniversary 7X7 Review Challenge

Recommendations for the Many Paths to Tread Anniversary 7X7 Review Challenge

This post is for you to recommend stories for others to review for this year's Anniversary Review Challenge. If you have a favorite story that you have already read and commented on, but would like to see that others have a chance to do so, please comment at this post.

All recommended stories must be posted at the Many Paths to Tread Archive.

For each story you recommend, use this header:

Reason for recommendation:

You may recommend as many stories as you want to, and you may put multiple recs in one comment so long as you use a separate header for each, (but do keep in mind LJ's character limit). Or you may use a separate comment for each rec if you wish.

Also, you may comment on other people's recs here if you wish.
