"Miss the golden days of the Lord of the Rings fandom? Get homesick for Middle-Earth?
Then this is for you!
You don't need to sign up anywhere to participate. But if you see this on your friends-page and like the idea, please post this text to your LJ to spread the word.
How to participate:
1. Pick a day of the week (or more than one) on which you resolve to always post something LotR-related in March, and let your friends-list know.
2. Go back and read your favourite chapters from the book, or watch the movies again. Let the beauty of LotR inspire you. And then, share the love.
3. Start your subject line with (B2MEM) when you post, and use a "b2mem" tag. This'll make it easy to spot your B2MEM-entries.
No matter if you just ramble about your undying love for LotR, picspam us, post wallpapers, icons, or write fan fic / create fan art, the plan is to get as many LotR-related entries on our friends-pages as possible throughout March.
Sounds good? We've been there, let's go back again!"
If you were wondering what b2mem is, now you know. I heard about it last year, but I was still in the clutches of the IB monster and thus couldn't participate. I think I'll post on weekends, although depending on the uni workload (alright, stop laughing...) I might be posting more.
Anyhow, here is pluggage for Melian fic. She's the featured character on silwritersguild
, I made icons of her a couple of weeks ago
, and she needs more fic written about her.*Melian fics:Songstress
- a drabble by KielleThe Last Temptation
by Maeve Riannon, a powerful 'what-if?' ficlet.Spiderwebs
by helga3 - an interesting perception of Melian (and no, it's not Melian/Ungoliant slash... although there is
a Melian/Ungoliant slashfic on ff.net...)Handmaiden of Lorien
by Marnie, a bittersweet piece about Melian's relationship with Elu Thingol.Leithian
by erunyauve, more bittersweetness.
*I have a Melian bunny. It came from the Library of Moria's random slash generator of all places, and between the Bilbo/Gwaihir and Pippin/Nazgul pairings, it came up with Melian/Arien, and I went 'hang on, that might actually work
...' and now it's brewing. Beware.
I don't know what I'll plug next. Any suggestions?
