Summary: You can write about any pure friendship - between any mortals or immortals or whoever. Between Elves, Men, Dwarves, Hobbits - even Orcs if you're feeling brave! Keep it clean, preferably no romance as this is a friendship challenge!

Summary: Gollum/Smeagol died a terrible and gruesome death. But imagine, if you will, an alternate ending to Frodo's epic journey - what if our hairy-footed hero had managed to resist the call of the Ring and had destroyed it of his own free will? What would have become of Smeagol then?
Categories: Movie-verse, Book-verse Characters: Gollum
Summary: I'm sure many of you have dreamed of/ read fanfictions about traveling to Middle Earth. But what if part of Middle Earth came to you. Like a country or land. Or maybe you made a forest to look like Lothlorien. You choose. Anything along these general lines. Try to keep it cannon and clean.
Categories: None Characters: None
Summary: Alright people! Good clean fiction, nothing explicit. It must be rolling on floor laughing worthy. You can use anything your mind can think of (maybe even mocking Mary and Gary Stues!!!)So again there really are no rules expect making it funny and nothing explicit. This should be interesting.

Categories: Movie-verse, Book-verse Characters: None
Summary: Everyone needs a good laugh now and again. I challenge you to make a hilarious 1-10 paragraph story. I don't want to see any graphic sex, or anything like that. (Because I don't see what's so funny about that..) Get cookin'!! (Oh, well, I guess the better saying would be: 'Get writing!' XD)

Summary: So basically, an immigrant from a poor country somehow finds themselves on the Lord of the Rings set. You should try to include the hardships faced by the main character and the changes that occur physically and emotionally for them.

Summary: One night, Steward Faramir wakes up with a jolt to find himself tied to his own bed: blindfolded, gagged, naked and – oh, Valar! – in the company of another man. Faramir’s initial indignation and anger are soon replaced by fear, once he understands this is no silly joke and the stranger has quite serious purposes – and Faramir can neither free himself nor call for help. However, once he stops struggling, he realises his guest has no intention of hurting him, and is in fact being rather gentle and patient. So, given his lack of options, Faramir cooperates, and actually quite enjoys himself… But he has not an inkling who his lover is – even when the scarf from his mouth is removed to let them kiss and he begs for a name, the stranger gives no reply. Faramir cannot even tell whether it is Man or Elf. He has a smooth face, but so do many Men in Minas Tirith (now, let us assume that Aragorn, since Professor T had never said otherwise, does shave at least once in a while – so technically it could be him also). Faramir never gets another visit – but has to admit that he would actually like to. So here is the mystery part: he wants to find out who it was he had shared his bed with, and ask him some questions and possibly, well, do some things. I would like there to be some good suspense, preferably three likely candidates, each with some points in favour of him being Faramir’s nightly guest – please keep us guessing until the very end. And, well, how things develop after the discovery is up to you.

Summary: I want a AU Gandalf/Pippin slash story at least 10,000 words long, or longer if possible, where Gandalf realizes he's in love with his Fool of a Took after saving him from Denathor in the Return of the King and has to deal with what he thinks is unrequited love for Peregrin Took. Eventual Gandalf/Pippin requited love please!

Summary: Write a Mary sue fanfiction where a modern girl comes to middle earth, but has no knowledge of where she is. She must be from our time, or after the Lord of the Rings was popular. You must make this mary sue normal in everyway. I would like someone to write about her falling in love with an elf, and how the elf would respond to her realistically, keeping the elf and all Tolkien's characters as much in cannon as you can :). No super mary sues!! Also, how will she get back to our world, and what kind of drama will ensue while she is in Middle Earth. There must be one major/secondary character death, and the modern girl can't speak elvish when she arrives! Neither can she speak the common tongue, because the commmon tongue was not english, either! Please, no slash, keep Tolkien's characters in cannon. Also, no crossovers. It would be much more challenging without. Have fun with it! What kind of things would she have brought with her? iPods, speakers, a watch? How would her being modern affect Middle Earth (WITHOUT changing the story!)? Have fun!!

Summary: The wall separating Boromir’s and Faramir’s bedrooms is not as thick as Boromir would have liked. His little brother has a rather eventful personal life, constantly shagging someone, or perhaps getting shagged – Boromir would rather not know. Usually the big brother grins and bears it. But one night, when all the moans, yelps, screams of “faster, faster!” and “fuck me hard, Captain Faramir!” won’t stop even after three in the morning, Boromir decides he has had enough. But as the door to Faramir’s bedroom is opened after Boromir’s furious banging, the heir’s ire abates a little – for he is greeted by the sight of his brother in full glory: unclothed, blushed and sweaty, raven hair in a mess, and with an impressive arousal to finish the picture. Moreover, behind him on the bed Boromir can see two young cadets, fresh but not innocent at all... Still, Boromir tries shouting – but Faramir is only grinning broadly in return. Yes, he already has an idea how to solve this conflict of interest…

Summary: All Gondorian noblemen learn the High Tongue, at least the basics. But the Steward’s sons should know it well, so a real Elf is hired as a tutor. He is the first of the Fair Folk to be seen in Gondor for ages, and attracts lots of attention – Faramir in particular finds him entirely fascinating… Naturally, the young lord ends up getting a bit more than the education his father is paying for. Boromir finds out and does not approve… Why exactly does he not approve? Mm, you decide.

Summary: As a father, Thranduil can be a little overbearing. Legolas constantly feels the need to be perfect and 'princely' in everything he does. One day, while journeying about knocking off orcs for fun, he meets up with a roving group of entertainers.

Alas! The leading lady breaks her leg and cannot act. (You can see where this is going, right?) Legolas discovers there's a something perversely enjoyable about dressing up as a girl and acting on stage in the many villages of men they pass through. Thranduil would have a fit if he ever found out!

This goes on for many years until, one midsummer's eve, Legolas is giving a fabulous performance when who should show up but Elladan and Elrohir!

They've never met, but Legolas instantly realises who the twin peredhel are. Legolas must make a hasty escape before he is discovered!

Unfortunately for him, the twins have seen the incredibly beautful lead 'actress' on stage and are desperate to win 'her' favour!

(Extra credit if you manage to include Elrond worrying over his sons' infatuation with a 'mortal woman!')

Summary: Liriel of Lothlorien is Haldir's sister and has been the secret lover of Prince Legolas for years. She is Arwen's closest female friend and an ex-girlfriend (not sexual!) of one of Arwen's brothers. What happens when Liriel arrives for the Council of Elrond as Legolas' new bride? I'd love to see the interplay between Haldir and Legolas over the very quick wedding, and how you persuade Gimli that it's a good idea to have another Elf in the party. How do you convince Boromir that a female elf can be a warrior? Must have the couple trying to sneak away for quiet moments but always being interrupted - and I'd love to see someone explaining Elven sex to the hobbits! I'd also suggest arguments between the young couple where Liriel makes it plain to all and sundry that she has a will and a mind of her own. I'm also wondering how things change if someone manages to heal Theoden's son? If you write as just LOTR, great. Cross-over options preferred would be Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Harry Potter.

Summary: This was suggested to me by a friend of a friend. Write any story, any length, in Legolas' POV, with the pairing being Legolas/Gandalf.

Summary: Write a story of life at one of the great elven settlements (Gondolin, Nargothrond, Doriath, Rivendell, Lothlorien, etc.) from the point of a woman living a traditional (ie, not warrior-maiden) life there, and using Sei Shonagon or something from her Pillow Book as an inspiration.

More information on her at this short article and this other one.

Summary: Eowyn is a little tired of Faramir always being so careful and gentle in bed. She has told him many a time, but, well, is there any use talking to men? So she decides to take some action, and, knowing his er, interest in young men, decides to play a little game of once again pretending to be a lad. Well, she gets a little more than she had expected.

Summary:

Basically, what if Sauron, the Nazgul, orcs, and so on and so forth were the good guys and Aragorn, Elrond, Legolas, Frodo, etc. were the bad guys?

Summary: What the title says. NOTE: ghouls MAY NOT be naturally found in Middle Earth. When you transport them to Arda (via portal or whatever you choose) you may come up with a way that they can have an unlimited food source (NOTE: this does not mean that they are able to consume something other then ghoul, human, coffee and water; simply that you may gift them with something like a replenishing chunk of meat as a gift from the Valar or Eru or something/one (you DO NOT have to do this). You do not have to send a ghoul (although that is preferred), you may send an investigator.The one I like best is to send both a ghoul and an investigator and force them to team up. This MAY NOT revolve around romance - as little as possible is appreciated, none is best. VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: this MAY ONLY be set in Arda. It may be either movie or book verse for LOTR and either manga or anime verse for Tokyo Ghoul.

Summary: Young Faramir has his first crush – no, not on Boromir. He writes a letter with a confession, but has doubts over its content, and asks his older brother for second opinion. As Boromir listens to Faramir’s impassioned reading, he realises with a shock that he would like his little brother to express these feelings for him – but is a little too stunned by this sudden revelation to actually voice it just now. So time goes by, and an elated and unsuspecting Faramir keeps Boromir posted re the rapid developments in his first love affair. Well, what will Boromir’s internal struggle come to? Will he ever dare voice his feelings? And if he does, what will come out of it? Faramir is, after all, already in love…

Summary: Faramir discovers his brother is having an affair with Queen Arwen. What is Faramir to do? The new Steward of Gondor Boromir II and Queen Arwen Undomiel have a thing. Boromir and Arwen? Yes. Whoever told you he is not her type? Of course he is. He is gorgeous and irresistible. He just is. And he makes her happy in bed. So there. No further discussion on this point. Where does Faramir fit into the plot? Faramir is the only one who knows about this relationship. Maybe he knew about it before it had even turned into a full-blown affair, or maybe he found out some time later – up to you. Question is, what is he going to do? He has his duty to his king, his duty to his brother, to his queen, to the state, to the good people of Gondor. Perhaps, although this is facultative, he himself has feeling for one of the parties involved…

Summary: Faramir gets his hands on a magic ring. Possibly as a present from Mithrandir. At first he does not know it is enchanted, but soon discovers it gives him some special power: hearing another’s thoughts, seeing the dreams other people dream at night – or, maybe, when he puts it on, takes a quill into his hand and pronounces a person’s name, his hand will write out the desires of that person. Whichever, really – with the help of this ring he should inadvertently come to learn of another man harbouring a secret passion for him – Boromir is the first to come to my mind, but feel free to choose someone else. Point is, Faramir is, for one, uncertain of the ring’s reliability, second, considers this method rather amoral. So what does he do with this questionable knowledge?
