Welcome to the Challenges section of :~Watch of Tirith Aear~:
Most archives hold challenges, but for those who are unfamiliar with the process, here is a brief explanation. Authors are given a challenge to write a story, poem, or essay about a certain character, situation, event, theme, etc. Some involve restrictions on length, point-of-view, characters, or whatever else the challenger chooses to include.
The day that each challenge closes, a poll will be set up on the forum. Members will have one week to cast their votes for the submission which they feel best responded to the challenge. The winner's submission is then hosted on the Challenge Winners board and is given the option of either setting a new challenge, choosing from forum ideas, or handing the choice back to a member of management.
Want to enter the current challenge? Read the rules, fill out the nomination form, email your submission to the Challenge Admin, and, if you have a site, grab a code! Members may submit up to two submissions per challenge.

Challenge 1: March 5th-April 30th
A parent should never have to say goodbye to a child - what did Galadriel and/or Celeborn feel upon hearing that their daughter intended to pass to the Havens before her time? Where were they when they heard? What did they do?
This entry can be answered by way of a story or poem - that is up to the author. Please try to keep the stories short - a one-shot fic if possible, rather than a multi-chaptered story. Other than that, no special rules apply, aside from the general.

Challenge 2: January 14 - March 1
Merry and Pippin are two hobbits who are renowned for their inability to stay still and quiet for long. Since that is the case, how did these two hobbits manage to remain perfect and quiet angels during the Ent Moot?
Write a funny story about Merry and Pippin during the long hours of the Ent Moot and what they did to amuse themselves. Extra points for cuteness. The same rules apply, shorter is better, and it can be a poem or short story. Good luck!
