Summary:

What would the fellowship be like if all the main characters were female? This doesn't necessarily have to be a story, you could put it in something sort of like my rant format.

Summary: Whilst playing Rock Band with some friends I had the idea to have a Dwarvish heavy metal band; and, as I'm heavily into writing Gandalf fiction at the moment, I thought this would make a great challenge/bunny for all who enjoy a little AU/humor in their LOTR fanfiction. It can have pairings, it could be a drabble, an AU or a PWP, does not matter so long as the Dwarves are rockin' all night/day etc. Take it and run! -er rock, yeah, rock.

Summary: People either fall into Middle Earth or are brought there by mysterious means, but here is the catch: They are turned into Animals; such as horses, wolves, dogs, hawks etc. And you can have them turn into mythical beasts like Dragons, Unicorns, Minotaurs, Fawns, etc. You can make them talk out loud or by thought etc. These people/animals could help the Fellowship or they could be used by the Fellowship, etc. Its up to you! Now who will answer my Challenge?!

Summary: I was thinking something about Arwen's thoughts of when Elladan, Elrohir and Aragorn go to the Battle of the Black Gate at the end of ROTK. What would she be feeling knowing she might never see them again? Would she be scared? Maybe glad? I don't know so have fun and enjoy - Li

Summary: Legolas never finds love in the books or movies, but what if it was him and not Aragorn who had fallen in love with the Evenstar? Note: Aragorn never falls in love with her for any responses to this. it is simply that Legolas did and he didn't.

Summary: Faramir, Aragorn and another man are buried alive by an avalanche. A few years after the War Aragorn, Faramir and another, Man or Elf (it could even be Boromir, if you like), are on some business up in the Mountains, when an avalanche descends on them. The three would either be in a hunter’s house or a large mountain cave, with a small supply of firewood and provisions, so they can last a few days. But there is extremely little hope of salvation, for the snow has dead-blocked all exits, and no one is likely to find and dig them out. You get the psychological atmosphere of the situation. All three are close friends, but no romantic relationships had arisen between them up to this point. But now… You know, desperation, depression, mad hopes, inescapable doom and no future… And then they just run out of fire-wood, and it’s winter up in the mountains. Up to you whether to make this into a tragic tale of hopeless love awakening only to be soon forever extinguished, as the frost takes them one by one – or have a happy end where at the last moment they are saved. You can also choose, of course, to have a bit of both, when not all of the company manage to make it through…

Summary: Throw someone from the 3rd Age back to the 1st. Could be the Fellowship, Thorin and Company, anybody. What do they experience? Do they try to change the future or try desperately to keep things as they were...?

Summary: In one sentence write the worst begining for a story. The sentence can be as long as you'd like as long as it is grammically correct.

Summary: Something naughty and shameless involving Faramir, Boromir, a cold winter evening and a bathtub full of hot water. Bonus points for making it a first-time story, when they start by innocently sharing the bath – but then, well…
Categories: Lord of the Rings Slash, Book Verse Slash Characters: Faramir
Summary: On a pleasant summer morning, Boromir takes a break from his military duties to spend a day in the woods with his adolescent brother. It is fun and relaxing: beautiful nature, warm sunshine, not a soul around, so many things to do, etc. But then Faramir is stung by a bee – because he accidentally sat down on it. First Boromir deems it absolutely hilarious (“What kind of a warrior gets stung by a bee, huh?” etc.), but then has to help pull the sting out of the cheek of Faramir’s firm round behind. Boromir can’t manage to get the tiny little thing with his fingers, and has to give it a go at sucking it out… There is some severe awkwardness both try to conceal, for each thinks it is he alone who had felt something funny when Boromir’s lips planted a strong kiss on Faramir’s skin. But I dearly hope you can find some way for them to clear this silly misconception.

Summary: Hm, what if Steward Denethor had three sons? Boromir, Faramir and their little brother… Would there still be only love, support and no envy or rivalry?
Categories: None Characters: Boromir, Denethor, Faramir
Summary: For Faramir’s birthday Boromir decides to make him the present of for once switching places in bed, so Faramir can play the top. Faramir is thrilled, but Boromir is in for some hardships, for he had not quite realised just how difficult yielding really is…
Categories: None Characters: Boromir, Faramir
Summary: Somebody, Man or Elf, has a hopeless crush on Faramir. Lovesick and yearning to get close to the Steward at least in some way, he sneaks into Faramir’s rooms to see how the man lives. Inadvertently the admirer finds Faramir’s personal diary, where the owner’s covert desperate yearning for Aragorn is revealed.

Knowing he would never get to have Faramir by any other method, the discoverer takes the diary and resolves to blackmailing the Steward into regularly lying with him, or otherwise Aragorn would come to find the little notebook right on his bedside table. Faramir is absolutely certain the King would scorn him if he knew, so he agrees to whatever is asked of him (which is not to say he finds the process entirely devoid of pleasure...).

This may go on for quite a while – but then I would like it if somehow Aragorn began to get suspicious: the Steward has been acting strangely as of late, etc.

Summary: After Celebrian sails west, Arwen goes to Lothlorien and the twins leave Imladris to seek revenge. Elrond sinks into a deep depression and starts to fade. The healers can do nothing for him.

That's when a young, loyal subject steps in. He does the unthinkable, forging a vassal-bond between himself and his lord, giving Elrond the strength to survive.

However, there's reason no-one performs vassal-bonds. Having bound himself in this way, he can never take a mate of his own. He can never tell Elrond of this one-sided bond, for Elrond would feel dreadfully guilty about it, and the vassal-bond demands that he do everything in his power to serve/please the lord to whom he is bound.

What happens when this elf falls in love with another? One whom he must always watch from afar but can never have?

Lots of angst, secrecy, misconstruction and conflict. Bonus points for using a minor character such as Melpomaen, Lindir, Saelbeth or Silinde. Bonus points for a happy ending!

Summary: A boromirlives! challenge. Returning to Minas Tirith as the new Steward, Boromir confides his hopeless infatuation with the King in his ever-understanding little brother. Faramir for his part is also badly in love with Aragorn – but since Boromir called it first, and generally is the older brother – Faramir keeps it shut. And so he helps Boromir, first cautiously finding out whether Aragorn could be interested, then coming up with a strategy for seducing him, etc. – all of which eventually leads to Boromir’s desired result… But! Faramir of course is torn and suffering – and what if at some point Aragorn perceives that?

Summary: Young Faramir (17-19) spends several months at his uncle’s (training, errand, Denethor is tired of him – you decide), who is respectively 45-47.

Faramir is a quiet serious youth, too mature for his years, and has little affinity with people his own age. He loves Boromir, but they are just too different. So in his uncle, who is a cultured, kind and attentive man, he finds all the warmth and understanding so badly lacking in his life. Imrahil in turn is very fond of Faramir, and a strong masculine friendship quickly develops between them, lots of trust and companionship.

But! Each soon discovers his feelings are developing in some other directions as well (need I specify…?). Angst and bewilderment: men-love is utterly not accepted in Gondor, and anyway neither had ever desired a man before. Add the moral factor of uncle-nephew relationship. So they can’t exactly embrace their yearning…

The exact plot and ending are up to you.

What I would like to see:
Some misunderstanding. For ex., each thinks he is the only one who has said feelings. Or, each perceives that the other is in love-lust with him, but thinks his own desires are well concealed.
Angsty scenes of unresolved sexual tension. Such as: while bathing alone in the sea, in the library of Imrahil’s castle, during some summer feast, in Faramir’s bedroom when Imrahil comes for a friendly chat, etc.

Summary: Write a tale based on the Flyleaf song, "Cassie." It should have character death, or mention of it.

Summary: Of all the hundreds of pairings out there, this is one I have only ever seen once, but believe could be a lot of fun. The Lady of Imladris and the famous Glorfindel, balrog slayer of Gondolin. If anyone agrees with me, give it a go! :) It can, of course, be any rating required, though I would personally prefer it to have a real story. Have fun!

Summary: Write about a place in Middle-earth or Earth you would like to either go yourself or put a character. It can be about anything and anyone, but make sure it's during the Christmas or Yule holiday.

Summary: This was part of a post in the forum of another LOTR site: If, Denethor and Boromir had somehow survived the War of the Ring, what would have happened? With Denethor still Steward and not Faramir, will there be civil war between him and Aragorn? If so, which side will the lords of Gondor, including Boromir, Faramir, and Imrahil, be on? A fascinating what-if... So, I just thought I'd share that little plotbunny. Do with it what you will.

Summary: Let’s explore this trope: a love potion is accidentally drunk by the people it was not intended for. Please make this an angsty and dramatic/tragic story, full of remorse, jealousy, wild unconquerable passion and desperate struggling against temptation. Perhaps for at least one of the lovers this relationship would mean having to be unfaithful to their spouse, or endanger their position to the point of making them a complete social outcast, or even death. But the magical love endures everything…
