This day celebrates all forms of fan creativity and we, at the Library of Moria, support it.
We would like to invite both readers and writers to join us in a small, fun challenge, in the likeness of the one the dawn_felagund, from the Silmarillion Writers Guild is organizing.
You are also welcome to post works that you have prepared for other challenges, as long as their rules allow it. :)
Writers - It's mini fic time!
So little time, so many pairings, eh? To make it easier for you, we are only challenging you to write a drabble (double and triple drabbles are ok too) or a flash fic (we'll set you a writing time up to 30 minutes).
To participate, comment here and state if you want a drabble, and we'll feed you a prompt. If you want to write flash fic, and we'll give you a time (honour system - if we give you 15 minutes, it's your job to keep track; editing time is not included). For flash fics there is no prompt, unless you ask us.
Your prompt sucks? Well, forget it and chose one of the old challenges or hit the random pairing generators (m/m, f/f) - we just want people to have fun!
Post your challenge to the LoM in reply to the challenge on February 15 and reply to the challenge issued there. On February 15 we will list all the participants and spread the love. :)
Reviewers - The 5 review challenge
Reviewing is hard! How many times have I read an amazing fic and then found no suitable word to tell the writer how much I loved it.
Your challenge is this: comment here claiming up to three pairings of those archived at the Lom under slash, femslash or RPS and RPS-femslash.
Then your job is to review 5 stories within the pairings you claimed. The review doesn't have to be an essay but you need to write more than 'loved it' (it has to be at least 10 words long). Highlight something you really loved about the fic.
Post the stories you selected here, so that we can make a roundup with them on February 15.
