2013 Yule Fic Exchange


IF you signed up for the 2013 LOTR GFIC Yule Fic Exchange  the requests are behind the cut.  ONLY those who signed up at THIS post are eligible to choose a request, and ALL who signed up are obligated to write a story.   Post a comment with the number of the request you wish to write. Post a comment as well for your second choice. State clearly which is your first or second choice. Comments will be screened.

First choices will be crossed out as the mods see the requests come in.  If two people request the same one before the mods have a chance to cross it out, the second person will get their second request.

In the remote possibility that both your choices are already chosen, we will contact you to make a third choice. All comments are screened.

Once all stories are claimed, you will be e-mailed with the name of the person you are writing for.  You may then check your recipient's own stories and so forth to get an idea of what she likes.  Do not contact your recipient however, as authors will be revealed when the stories are revealed.
Please do not wait too long to choose the requests you wish to claim!

You can refresh your memory of the rules and deadlines HERE

Yule Fic Exchange Requests 2013

(1) Anything and anyone First Age, something to do with Midwinter and snow

(2) A story set during the Time of the Trees or the First Age about friendship between two (or more!) women of the House of Finwe.

(3) I'm insatiable when it comes to Cormallen fic, especially back-story gap fillers. Here are a few potential ideas: Where did the hobbits' silver circlets come from? Why was there a minstrel there, and how did he learn Frodo's story? Why did the Men praise the hobbits in more than one language? When and how were Frodo and Sam introduced to Eomer, etc.? Who prepared the feast, and did they know why? Did the cooks get to meet the hobbits and the King? How did Eomer King feel, sharing this feast with the uncrowned king of Gondor?

(4) Dís and Balin as small children and playmates, before Smaug attacked their home.

(5) In LOTR, Gimli and Legolas swore to return to Fangorn and the Glittering Caves once more, journeying with each other. Choose one (or both) of these areas and this journey of the two unlikely traveling companions. What do they see? Who do they meet? If possible, work Yuletide into the story, although that's not mandatory. Most of all...have fun.

(6) I would like a story featuring Boromir in Rivendell, during the waiting time between the Council of Elrond and the setting out of the Fellowship.

(7) I'd love a hurt/comfort fic exploring friendship among any of the Silmarillion ladies. If at all possible, a happy or at least hopeful ending would be fantastic.

(8) I would like something featuring any of the sons of Fëanor as kids.

(9) I would like to see a story in which Frodo or Sam suddenly bursts into unexpected tears in response to some simple stimulus. What is the situation, why did it evoke such an emotional response, and how do others respond to this unexpected turn of events?

(10) A story that passes the Bechdel test! Meaning it features at least two women who talk to each other about something other than a man. Any characters, any time period, any Tolkien source are fine.

(11) Glorfindel solves a mystery. Points for a peacock. Bonus points for a slash pairing (not Ecthelion) Any time, any place.

(12) I would like an angst hurt/comfort story about Galadriel, Elrond and Arwen.

(13) I would like a story about a main character (or characters) from the Lord of the Rings, but seen through the eyes of a stranger on the fringes, ideally one who doesn't fully understand what they're seeing. I'm happy with any setting, from pre-LotR to Fourth Age.

(14) I'd love a story about young Bilbo having a Yule holiday with his parents, Bungo and Belladonna. Could be at home in Bag End, or could be visiting kinfolk at the Great Smials. Any age from infancy to coming-of-age; could be funny, fluffy or serious; whatever floats your boat.
