May 2016 Challenge: Waiting

The theme for May 2016 is 'Waiting'. Stories should feature the theme of your character waiting for something or someone. All prompts are based on a situation from your chosen source. The sources are The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings or the Silmarillion. Leave a comment with your chosen source and one of the mods will give you a prompt.

The May challenge stories will be due on 18th of June 2016 (we chose this date since we're late in posting this challenge, RL intervened in the lifes of all the moderators). They will be revealed on 21st of June 2016. Please tag your story (Challenge: Waiting) and (Month: May 2016). 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 own name in the subject line. ( e.g. : A Good Story by Mary Sue ). Do remember to include the LJ cut. If you have any questions, please email the mods.
I hope you have fun writing your story, and look forward to reading it!

Thanks for participating!

None of the line of Húrin for you then ;) I send you a prompt and I hope you will like it!

I'll have a whack at it. I'll take a prompt from either The Hobbit or LOTR.

I just send you a prompt to have a good whack at. Have fun!
May. 20th, 2016 07:49 pm (UTC)
Oh, me please! I'll take either Hobbit, LOTR or Silm, I don't particularly mind which. Something with elves in it preferably. :D

Sorry to hear you all were facing RL issues! In any case, this sounds like a great challenge -- I'm getting ideas already and I haven't even got my prompt yet!

I would like a Lord of the Rings-based prompt, please.
May. 22nd, 2016 07:50 pm (UTC)
I hope the prompt was one of the ideas you bounced around. It is in your inbox!

I'd like a Silm prompt please. And if I can be fussy, late Silm with elves would be nice *hides*

Late Silm elves... you mean elves who live in the second or third age?

I'll do my best to come up with at least a drabble or double drabble. LOTR please, hopefully something referencing the Three Elven rings (I have an impulse to write about them).
May. 22nd, 2016 06:36 pm (UTC)
I found a fitting prompt for you, check your e-mail!

I'd like to try if the Muses oblige. LOTR, please and I've just written a story about waiting for a baby to be born.
May. 22nd, 2016 07:54 pm (UTC)
Let's see what your muse needs then... I just send you a prompt.
May. 21st, 2016 02:38 am (UTC)
If you posted on time I would have missed it. Lord of the Rings please.
May. 22nd, 2016 07:58 pm (UTC)
I am glad that it worked out for you. I just e-mailed you a prompt.

I know I'm late, but may I have a prompt? Life has been taut this last week!
May. 22nd, 2016 08:05 pm (UTC)
I think we are all late this month, no worries dear Larner. I just started to send out the prompts so for me you are perfectly on time. I just sent yours!
May. 22nd, 2016 10:19 pm (UTC)
Please send me a Silmarillion-based prompt involving elves.
Jun. 5th, 2016 11:36 am (UTC)
I just send you a prompt - my apologies for the delay - that you will hopefully like!
May. 23rd, 2016 05:50 pm (UTC)
I don't know if I'll manage to finish in time but I'd like to try!

Could I please have a LOTR prompt?
Jun. 5th, 2016 11:22 am (UTC)
We always welcome late postings, don't worry! I just send you a prompt and my apologies for the delay.
May. 25th, 2016 07:25 am (UTC)
Sorry to be so late but could I still have a prompt? Silm or LOTR Appendices, please.
Jun. 5th, 2016 11:31 am (UTC)
Oh well, I think the word 'late' really applies to this month's challenge... so to me you are not late. I just send you a prompt and my apologies for the delay.

Or you are just fashionably late :) I just send you your prompt and I hope it will be inspiring!
