June 2013 Birthday Cards

Birthday folks: Is your birthday in June and you would be delighted by a little story gift from your fellow HASA members? Then state your request here in this thread. To collect your birthday cards in one place, you can create a birthday workshop story.

Authors: Let yourselves get inspired by the suggestions - a chance to be creative and to make a fellow HASA member happy at the same time! Just like the recipients, you can collect the stories you've written in a  birthday workshop story.

And don't forget to add your birthday cards to the 2013 Birthday Cards Challenge.

Here's a short recap on how to do that:

  • Add each birthday present as a chapter in your story, using the story name (and the birthday recipient if there is room) as the story chapter. If you can't fit the person's name into the chapter title, just include it as the first opening line in the chapter.
  • Be sure you give each chapter a number and set the status to public so everyone can read it!
  • Since most birthday card stories are pretty short, you might include the birthday recipient's wish for what kind of story she wanted. Paste it from the forum.
  • In your story summary, you can list out who you've written stories for if you like.
  • It's up to you on the order you want to give your chapters - Alphabetical by recipient, order by month chronologically, newest first, etc.

In case you need help or have a comment, question or suggestion, please post it here or send me an e-mail - I'll do my best to help.



A birthday present for Linaewen

The Vanishing Point

"What did you say her name was, Boromir?"

"It matters not."

"I know this melancholy has naught to do with Father. He has been in Dol Amroth for a month."

Faramir shifted on the hard stone ledge overlooking the Pelennor. The sky, crystal blue as he'd ever seen it, caused him to shade his eyes. Anduin cut through the farmlands below like a great blue-grey ribbon.

"You have been less than sanguine since she returned to Harad."

A peregrine dove past his cheek. Faramir smiled. "I remember. She was named after Nevrast's lake of birds. Linaewen. You miss her."



A/N: Linaewen could have been of the line of Hador from the First Age. Perhaps her ancestors escaped the fall of Beleriand and returned east. I don't think Boromir knew her lineage.
