March 2006 Birthday Challenge

Challenge Details

A collection of the drabbles written for people with birthdays in March 2006. Every month HASA members may request birthday card drabbles (a story of exactly 100 words) on a topic of their choosing. See how much can be said in only a hundred words. This is an ongoing project, so if you would like to request a drabble or write a drabble for others, please feel free to join HASA and get in on the fun. Requests are made in the HASA Birthday Cards Forum.

Elena Tiriel - Elena Tiriel's 2006 Birthday Gifts!
General Audience
Last Updated: 25 Jul 06
For this year's birthday cards, I would really like either: - Elves, Rohirrim, Faramir, the Fellowship, or Dwarves (or other creatures of the light) demonstrating compassion in some appropriate way, or - Dark creatures being, well, dark ... however you wish to portray darkness. Obscure corners of canon are optional, but much appreciated.

How do you convince a boy to stop skipping school when he doesn't know he's supposed to grow up to be king? Elrohir gets handed the task by a very exasperated Erestor, and learns some things about Estel he didn't expect.

For Allie Meril, who wanted something about a student of Arda: in any study, any place, any time.

With many thanks to the legion of beta readers who helped me thwap this into shape and caught, hopefully, all my typos and backwards curly quotes: River Girl, Beregond5, Sulriel, Gandalf's Apprentice, Pen52, Oshun, LadyA, Patti Baggins, and anyone else I may have forgotten.

I really love Legolas and Gimli and how they interact. Slash is acceptable, but nothing too graphic, please, I want to keep this off of adult rating.

Vistula the Dunadan - Vistula's 2006 Birthday Presents
General Audience

My birthday is on March 20th and I'd love to see interactions or conversations between Sam and Frodo. These can be pre, during or post Ring War and can be of any kind - including slash if you're so inclined. If Sam and Frodo as a pair don't inspire you, then how about your favorite character discovering something about Sam who, as you may surmise is my favorite character.
