The Many Paths to Tread Archive is three years old! To celebrate this milestone, we are posting stories from a very special challenge!

We announced a Special Third Anniversary Challenge, for stories inspired by the poem in The Fellowship of the Ring, Chapter III, "Three's Company, that begins "Upon the Hearth the Fire is Red", and includes the words that inspired the name of the archive: "...and there are many paths to tread".

This challenge was for both stories and art, and we had several authors and artists participating!

Please drop in and read the stories or look at the art, and take a moment to thank the givers! We hope everyone enjoys them!

Authors, if you can, please upload your stories or art to the archive in the next few days! If you do that, it saves us a lot of work.

Happy 3rd Anniversary, MPTT!!!
We have now reached the milestone of 3 whole years with "Many Paths to Tread" and 5 years for the GFIC group! The LJ Challenge Community is in there in the middle, and we have grown by leaps and bounds with more exciting happenings waiting in the wings!

I'd like to say thanks to everyone who helps us keep MPTT going in any number of ways - by visiting, reading, commenting, writing for the challenges and special events, cheerleading, moderating, artwork, and more! At a time when many activities in fandom have cooled, our groups are a lovely oasis for Tolkien-esque stories and camaraderie. We couldn't do it without your support!

And a special thanks to all the GFIC mods and our wonderful webmistress, Dawn Felagund, who keeps it all together!

Dreamflower, Pearl, Dawn, Celeritas - you are a great team and I am so happy to be working with each one of you! Thanks so much for all that you do. Here's to many more years of Fellowship!!!!

*Group Hugs*

I have an extremely late entry for the Anniversary Special, if you still want it, but I will understand completely if you feel it's too late.
(I also realized I was only watching this community and wasn't a member, so I've just applied to join.)

It's NEVER too late here! Just make sure to tag it appropriately when you put it in the queue, so that I don't confuse it with entries for other challenges! I look forward to seeing it!

I hope I've done everything properly!
