September Challenge: Young/Old

The challenge for September will have the theme of "Young and Old", in which you should have two characters interacting: one young and one old. There should be at least one generation between the two characters, who may be of any race or era of Middle-earth.

The elements will be adjectives: you may ask for between three to five in your request.

If you wish to participate, either respond to this post in a comment. (If you have not taken part before, please give an email address to which we may send a prompt.) Or you may email the mods: aelfwina@gmail.com or virginia_lee_redcat@yahoo.com or pearltook@mac.com to ask for your element.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the mods.

Can I have four elements please? May as well tempt my inspiration again...

And one question: one generation between, does that mean, say, parent-child, or grandparent-grandchild?

Grandparent-grandchild, if it's direct descent. For other relationships, there should be about 40 to 50 years differences in the ages. Or in the case of Elves, a few millenia at least!

(and your elements are on their way)

No promises but 'nothing ventured, nothing gained so count me in. If I ask for five words may I pick and choose how many to use?

My Muses gave me a story with more than two generations, so I hope it will be acceptable?I could not think of anything else.

Thank you it is almost ready. When am I supposed to post it? I don't like leaving things till the last minute lest the dreaded migraines strike.

You post it to the LJ Community anytime. They are due next weekend, but it's okay if you post early, because the stories stay in the moderator's queue until we unlock them on the reveal date of the 15th.

I've posted it and hope it will turn out alright.
I was a bit stressed as the plot refused to come to me,but I finally manged to write down the ideas that were floating round my brain.
The stories will be a nice birthday present for me!
