March 2017 "Spring Fever" Links

The March "Spring Fever" challenge entries have been posted. This challenge asked for hurt/comfort stories set in the springtime with a healing herb as an element. We have lots of wonderful stories this month to keep you busy reading for the next few days! If you like a story, please consider leaving the author a note saying so.

As always, late entries are more than welcome.

Doctoring by febobe. Frodo languishes after his return to the Shire…but Rose Cotton has the best medicine….

The Dragon-Son and the Son of the Wood (Part One) by kayleelupin. A few months after his fiftieth Begetting Day, Prince Thranduil pays a visit to the Empire of Rhûn. A story which will be told in five triple drabbles (headers not included).

Drawn from the Water by lynndyre. When Celeborn's forces cross the Anduin, Rumil is swept downstream.

The Dream Whisperers by foxrafer. Faramir finds a way to comfort his daughter as she fights off an illness.

The Hands of the King Are Still the Hands of a Healer by dreamflower02. The King is sometimes the personal physician to two elderly retired hobbits who reside in the Citadel. (An old-fashioned mild hurt/comfort featuring Merry and Pippin).

A Light Exists in Spring by indy1776. Maglor receives help in making a life-changing decision.

The Mirkwood by silver_trails. Elrohir meets Legolas.

The Rescuer by lindahoyland. When gathering herbs, Morwen hears a cry for help.

Soothing Salve by lin4gondor. Dûrlin has just the remedy for a bee sting.

A Spring for Hope by periantari. The fruits of Sam’s work post-Scouring of the Shire has a toll on him physically and mentally. Part Two | Part Three

Authors, I will be adding any stories to the MPTT archive at the end of the week if they haven't been added already. I will let you know when I do, but if you get a chance to get your story added before then, that would be a tremendous help. I've created the March 2017 challenge series here and you can add your story to the challenge series here, or I will do so at the end of the week.

Happy reading, everyone! :)

Erm...I've had to reformat mine. I meant to do it in a series of five drabbles, but then I interested Emma in it, and, well, it kind of...exploded? *rueful look* It's now still in progress. Hope that's all right.

That's no problem! Postings of continuations, new chapters, etc are equally welcome after the due date. Just post them as they're ready, and I'll free them from the queue. (If it's getting close to another challenge due date when you post, I might not notice it's for this challenge because we mods get an influx of notifications for new stories in the queue; just give me a nudge if you don't see the story up on the comm within a day or so, and I'll fish it out and free it.)

Thanks! The first part is (I think) complete at least, anyway. (I hope so. It turned into a monster, lol. *laughs*)

Hey, there's nothing wrong with letting inspiration run away with you! I'm glad the challenge helped that happen. :)

I no longer have an account in MPTT. Is it mandatory to have them posted there? I left MPTT because I was posting in too many places, even though I loved the site. I could provide a link to AO3, if it's okay.

Or I could have an MPTT account again if that's okay, and post only my LotR stuff there? Is that possible?

Mar. 21st, 2017 10:14 pm (UTC)
I can do that--but as I noted, it's not required, so whatever you're comfortable with is fine. :) Just let me know what you want to do but please don't feel pressured to post to the archive if you're limiting your posting! We're happy to have you writing for the challenges.

Mar. 21st, 2017 10:21 pm (UTC)
I'd like to post only my LotR fics, so can I have an account again, please? I won't post all my fics on one day. Promise! =)
Mar. 21st, 2017 10:13 pm (UTC)
No worries--it's not required! It's just long been something we do: cross-posting challenge stories between the comm and the archive. But I'll just leave yours off when I do my archiving this weekend. :)

i have two more parts to add-- should i add it all at once or two separate entries in the community? Thanks.
Mar. 21st, 2017 10:15 pm (UTC)
However you prefer to do it is fine!

Mar. 21st, 2017 02:53 am (UTC)
I'm making progress, but mine isn't ready for posting yet. Hope to have it up in the next few days!
Mar. 21st, 2017 10:15 pm (UTC)
Awesome! I'll keep an eye out for it. :)

I haven't thought about any archive in so long, but I just rustled up my old passwords so I should be able to post mine tonight.

Thanks for organizing another great month.
Mar. 25th, 2017 10:26 pm (UTC)
Thank you! ^_^
Mar. 25th, 2017 05:05 pm (UTC)
If it's okay, could I add mine to the archive later, when I get an MPTT account?
Mar. 25th, 2017 10:27 pm (UTC)
Of course! I'll leave yours off when I do them.
Mar. 26th, 2017 01:55 am (UTC)
Thank you!
