Welcome to yet hope remains; a Lord of the Rings comment ficathon.
I know some us were involved in LotR fandom way back when, but it's been ages since I've read or written LotR fic, and with the tumblr rewatch and the countdown to The Hobbit trailer, I kept thinking about how much I'd love a LotR ficathon. So here it is!
I should stress that this is a comment!ficathon for the entire world of Middle Earth, which means that if you want fic about the hobbits as they went about their days completely oblivious to Sauron, that's excellent, and if you want fic about the villagers on the outskirts of Rohan that had to run in fear for their lives, that's fantastic!
No RPF, but AUs are welcome as long as they stay within the world of Middle Earth. (So an AU where Sauron wins would be fine, but an AU where they all work in a bookstore would not.) Art fills are always welcome.
Above all else, please have fun ♥
How do I prompt?
Only one prompt per comment, but you can leave as many as you'd like. Prompts should contain the following format:
Time Period - Characters/Ship - Prompt
(ie. The Two Towers - Uruk-hai at Helm's Deep - the first that fell
or Second Age - Sauron - a thirst that can't be quenched)
How do I fill?
Your fill can be of any length, POV, etc, and there can be multiple fills for each prompt. Please post your fill as a reply to the prompt, and title all of your response fics as follows in the comment subject line:
Title - Time Period - Character/Ship
(ie. The Cold Grew - The Two Towers - Uruk-hai at Helm's Deep
or strength in fury - Second Age - Sauron)
Will this be archived?

Bonus! Youtube user dogsrule has a complete playlist of the LotR soundtracks here if you don't have them, and they make perfect writing music.
