The Tolkien fan fiction on this journal was written and posted without any intention of infringing the rights of J.R.R. Tolkien's estate, whose property the characters and stories remain (and also without any intention of infringing any rights of New Line Cinema or anyone involved in the making of the movies).
Stories and other texts have been written solely for the purpose of the writer's own enjoyment and to share that enjoyment with her associates and readers. No other profit is made or will be made from them by the writer.

You are welcome to translate or podfic any of my fanworks that are not f-locked, if you wish. Please credit the original and let me know if you post the translation or podfic to a public site.
If you are on my f-list or if we have corresponded on matters Tolkien elsewhere, you are also welcome to remix my stories (except for the f-locked ones). If you are not known to me, I'd prefer it if you told me of your intentions first but I will almost certainly give you the permission to do so. This only applies to true remixes (that is, if more than a third of your story is closely based on mine). You are welcome to quote or use my stories in other more minor ways, as long as you credit them, without asking for permission. I like being informed of all kinds of use made of my stories, but it is not mandatory.
Please do not re-post whole stories to any other site without asking for my permission. You are welcome to link to them without asking, though.
These permissions are given on the assumption that any use made of my fanworks will be as strictly not-for-profit as my works themselves are.

Signal Boost: February 2017 Challenge: Revolution!

The second new SWG challenge--many of you will have seen this already (and the first stories for the new one have already been posted!)

SWG Revolution Challenge

On Modern-earth, in many parts of the world, February is Black History Month, a reminder of how justice is often wrested and seized from the powerful through the courage and sacrifices of the oppressed.

The early ages of Arda are likewise defined by revolution. Ossë's rebellion against Ulmo. The return of the Noldor to Middle-earth. Barahir's outlaws. The Kings' Men and the Elf-friends of Númenor. Into the Third Age, the Gondorians rebelled against the cruel usurpation of Castamir. Then of course there are the individual revolutionaries of Arda: Fëanor, Andreth, Aredhel, Isildur, Ar-Pharazon. (And who could forget the ur-revolutionary Melkor?) Between the lines, many fans read resistance against dominating--even colonialist--cultures by the unsung peoples and heroes of Middle-earth.

Rohan ficlet: Daughter of Thengel and Morwen
Tolkien
hhimring
I wrote this for the Taboo Challenge at the SWG--specifically the prompt "culture shock".
Not that good a match for a SWG challenge, really, I suppose, but I've been interested in Thengel's daughters for a while and I had this one on my mind right now, because of another challenge and another ficlet.

In Between (517 words) by Himring
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien, TOLKIEN J. R. R. - Works & Related Fandoms
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Major Character Death
Relationships: Faramir (Son of Denethor II) / Eowyn
Characters: Sister of Theoden, Morwen of Lossarnach, Faramir, Éowyn (Tolkien), Eorlingas | Rohirrim
Additional Tags: Cultural Differences, Culture Shock, Textual Ghosts, POV Female Character, SWG Challenge
Summary:

Thengel of Rohan and Morwen of Lossarnach had two daughters that were born in Gondor, before Thengel's father died and he returned to Rohan to take up the kingship.
Such a daughter might have found it easy to adjust--or she might not.

This is a friendly reminder that there is one week left in the Taboo challenge! Choose one, multiple, a row, or an entire card of prompts from our Taboo bingo card. Taboo challenge stories are due on the SWG archive no later than February 10, 2017, in order to be eligible to receive a stamp for that month. That's one week away!

Of course, if inspiration strikes you after the 10th, you are welcome to continue using the challenge bingo card, but late entries will not receive stamps.

Our challenges involve both a writing and a reviewing component. Several Taboo stories have been posted already. Check out the Taboo stories here and consider reviewing one or a few (or all!) of them. There is no deadline for the review challenge.

Signal Boost: January 2017 Challenge: Taboo
Tolkien
hhimring
There's a bingo card! There's a set of tempting prompts! And there is a lovely stamp to be won (you can see it on the SWG Archive page)!
Surely you're ready to break a taboo or two?

All cultures have behaviors that are forbidden. And frankly, our beloved Silmarillion characters get up to quite a lot of them.

This month's theme is Taboo and features a bingo card for participants to self-select a prompt or prompts to inspire their fanworks. To participate as a creator, you need only to create a fanwork using one prompt; however, for the more adventurous among us, we encourage you to combine prompts, complete rows, or attempt one of the dozen variations of card patterns. You may use multiple prompts in a single fanwork or use prompts to inspire multiple fanworks.

Taboo Prompt CardCollapse )

To be eligible for this month's stamp, you must post your response to the SWG archive no later than February 10, 2017. (Fanworks that are not fiction, nonfiction/essays, poetry, script/screenplay, podfic, and other audio can be posted to the SWG LiveJournal community or the SWG Dreamwidth community. All of the formats listed above must be posted on the SWG archive to count.)

Please comment here with the prompt(s) you've selected. More than one person can claim a prompt. You're also welcome to share a link to your response here when it's finished!

To participate as a reviewer, review one, several, or all of the responses posted for the Taboo challenge. There is no deadline to comment on fanworks and receive a stamp as a reviewer, but please email us if you are commenting on a challenge that is more than two months old.

Refer to the full challenge guidelines for more information. Comment here or email us at moderator@silmarillionwritersguild.org with questions.
