February 15 is International Fanworks Day! In honor of the day, your challenge this month is to write a story about something that someone in Middle-earth might be a fan of. For example, does Maglor have a problem with fangirls? Does Aragorn have a weakness for First Age poetry? Do famous hobbit cooks have a following? Do some people of Minas Tirith make up stories about the Royal Family? Or any other sort of fannish scenario you can think of. Prompts will be based on your source, so if you comment, please indicate if you are going to base the story in The Silmarillion, The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings or some other book by Tolkien, or an adaptation of his work such as the movies. Your prompt will be a character from that work; you do not need to feature the character in your story, but he/she should at least be mentioned.

The February challenge stories will be due Thursday, February 12, and will be revealed on Sunday, February 15. Please tag your story "challenge: fanworks day" and "month: 2015 february". Please remember to use the following header template (also found on the community profile page), and to put the name of your story and your name in the subject line.

To request your prompt, please leave a comment to this post; don't forget to mention which source you will be using. If you have not participated before, please leave an email address so that I can send you your prompt. Or you can email the mods at manypaths@lotrgfic.com.

I hope we'll have many participants for the February challenge!

I am afraid I don't, unless it's by another name. My address book doesn't bring it up. You can email me with it to manypaths@lotrgfic.com.

Aww, LJ ate my comment.

I'd like a prompt, please. The source may be whatever you like, or The Silm. ;)

A Silm prompt is on the way!

I have never done this before, and given how late it is I cannot guarantee that I will get it done on time. XD But I'd like to give this a go, it sounds fun!

I'm going to focus on LotR - books and movies - but with references to the Silmarillion. DO we need a prompt, or can we write about whatever we want to? Not gonna lie, I really want to write about Glorfindel and his legions of fangirls.
Feb. 12th, 2015 01:24 am (UTC)
Since I did not have your email addy, I sent your prompt by LJ PM. Please let me know if you got it!

May I have a Hobbit (movie) prompt? My email is rabbit.writer@gmail.com, since I've never participated before. :)
Feb. 12th, 2015 01:25 am (UTC)
Sent! Please let me know if you got it.
