My latest photos, mostly of the boys and flowers. My 96 year old friend planted some tulips for me which I found in a leftover supermarket bin for 99P. I'm amazed how well they turned out.

Eclipse of Reason

B2MeM Challenge; Solar Eclipse
Since a partial solar eclipse is happend in parts of Europe, North Africa and a bit further a while ago, I'm wondering how the inhabitants of Middle-earth will react to complete solar eclipse, or what they will make of it. It would be particularly awesome if they were Elves who still carry the memory of the time before sun and moon came into existence.
Format: Short story
Genre: drama
Rating: PG
Warnings: racism
Characters: Aragorn, Arwen, Faramir, OMCS
Pairings: Aragorn/Arwen
Summary: A solar eclipse causes unrest.
The list of Aragorn's titles is taken from "The lord of the Rings".
With grateful thanks to my friends on LJ for all their help and suggestions.

Would you like to see regular Reuben's writing challenges with 6 random words? The stories can be about anything and I'll avoid words like "phone" that limit the era the story is set in.

The aim of the challenge is to encourage writing and have fun. There are no strings,obligations or word counts.

Hope this might help those who are struggling with their Muses at present. If people enjoy it, I'll do it again.

Use the words as you wish, for example "bear" could be an animal or to endure.

Teitho: April challenge "Trust"
Sat Mar 25, 2017 5:08 am (PDT) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia

Our theme for April is Trust. Thanks to Scribe of Telcontar for the suggestion!



The presence or absence of trust is the defining moment of every relationship. There can't be true friendship or love without trust. There can be a different measure of trust between two people, changing over time s their relationship develops. Legolas and Gimli are a good example of such development. But in a bigger group, the relationships get even more complicated. You can take a look at the Fellowship and how its members trusted each other at different points of the journey.


Trust is usually between two people, and it can be an asymmetrical emotion - one side might remain faithful while the other can betray the trust. Words and deeds can differ here, and it's the deeds that matter at the end. But one can also trust in some other things and ideas, like justice, the government (or king), one's own skills...
The deadline for this challenge is April 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!



For writers: send your stories to teitho.contest@gmail.com mailto:teitho.contest@gmail.com. The contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicaly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.


For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.

Happy writing and drawing!
Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach http://mirachravaia.deviantart.com/

Spring flowers and the ginger boys.

The boys were leaping like lambs in the yard today.

The tulips in the vase were a gift from a friend.
