1. Memory Is Not What the Heart Desires
Today's Challenge (Day One):
Voltaire said that it's not enough to conquer: one must learn to seduce. Write a story or poem or create artwork where seduction plays a central role.
Legolas looks up from planing timber:
"Come with me, Gimli."
About to roar with laughter, he realises the Elf is serious.
"To – Valinor? Your Undying Lands? Even assuming I could get there – which you must admit is a stretch in itself – what in Mahal's name would I do? I doubt there's much opportunity for Dwarven crafts!"
"Oh, I don't know." Legolas inspects his work. "Lady Galadriel is renowned for her love of smith-work, after all...."
The memory of that hair, that voice, those eyes... he is seduced.
"You'd only fall overboard on your own watching gulls, or something. I'll come."
