2012 Birthday Cards

Challenge Details

A collection of the drabbles and ficlets written for people with birthdays in 2012. 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 2012 Birthday Cards Forum.

  • If you are writing a story for someone, be sure to say who the birthday recipient is in the summary of the story.
  • If you have received stories, such as drabbles in the birthday forum thread, create a story of your own, make each present into a chapter in your story (copy/paste), and then link the collection of stories to the challenge.

My birthday is March 14th, and I'd love a drabble about elves... or any other of Tolkien's races, whatever sparks your muse!

My 2012 birthday request was "something around this quote from the Akallabeth:

For the Dúnedain held that even mortal Men, if so blessed, might look upon other times than those of their bodies' life; and they longed ever to escape from the shadows of their exile and to see in some fashion the light that dies not; for the sorrow of the thought of death had pursued them over the deeps of the sea. Thus it was that great mariners among them would still search the empty seas, hoping to come upon the Isle of Meneltarma, and there to see a vision of things that were. But they found it not. And those that sailed far came only to the new lands, and found them like to the old lands, and subject to death. And those that sailed furthest set but a girdle about the Earth and returned weary at last to the place of their beginning; and they said: 'All roads are now bent.'
