Hobbit Ficathon

lotr fandom

Welcome to our little hobbit-centric fanfic challenge community! Rules are simple: a challenge will be posted once a month and if you wish, you have two weeks to post a story for it. You do not have to take part in every challenge, and you don't even have to declare your intention. Stories should all feature a hobbit or hobbits in the starring role. All stories should be rated appropriately, and all stories should be placed behind a cut. As this is an open community, please keep in mind that people under the age of 17 may be reading your stories.

We do ask that you keep all comments to the stories of others polite. Flames will not be tolerated.

Enjoy our hobbity corner of the world!

The March Challenge

The challenge for this month is "signs of spring". Write a ficlet telling of a hobbit dealing with a harbinger of spring-- is it the first flower? the return of birds from the south? is it planting time? or the birth of animals?

You may post your story to the community at any time this month. As we are very informal, the only rules are to make sure you post your rating, and put your story behind a cut. And tag your story "signs of spring".

Conversation challenge fic

Authors: [livejournal.com profile] dreamflower02 and [livejournal.com profile] labourslamp
Rating: PG (for one use of mildly salty language)
Summary: Sometimes a writer just can't please everyone, as Frodo discovers...
A/N: This collaborative story is the result of a rather silly late night IM conversation in which Dreamflower and Celeritas came to the conclusion that the reason that so many of the exciting things that happened in Rivendell and Hollin were left out of the Red Book is because it would have made the story far too long. (Readers may spot a number of familiar references...perhaps you will even see yourself...)

As Frodo discovers... Read more... )

FIC: Correspondence

Rating: G

A/N: This is set in my "Sandbox," a limbo-of-the-fathers type place where I have more liberty to play around with the characters than I would in a strict canon setting.  Fits the January and the February challenges.

February Challenge

Going back to ideas from the poll I took, this month's challenge was from [livejournal.com profile] grey_wonderer:

Write a ficlet featuring a conversation between any two canon hobbits. (They can be "major" or "minor".)

As usual, you can post the story at this community at any time this month. Just make sure to post the rating and put the story behind a cut!

Fic: Making the Best of It

This is for the "new beginnings" challenge!


Rating: G
Summary: Pippin tries to fit in at the Great Smials.
Author’s Notes: In my Shire-universe, Thain Ferumbras III abdicated the Thainship to Paladin the year that Pippin was 15. Concerned about the unpleasant atmosphere at the Great Smials that had prevailed in the years that Ferumbras’ mother Lalia was the Took, Paladin and Eglantine sent their children to live with relatives while they settled into the Great Smials and began making some changes there. One year later, they brought the children there to live. In this story, Pippin is 16, which is the equivalent of a 10 year-old among Men. Also, there are references here to some of my other stories, particularly "Consequences of a Fall", “The Dwarf Dagger”, “Moving Day”, and ”A Sight to Remember”.

My first entry in a long time

“Scary Biscuits”

For the Hobbit-Ficathon Challenge: 
write a ficlet in which a gift or gifts play a part.
Rated: G
Characters:  Sam, Frodo and Bilbo

This is an anti-recipe fiction.  After you’ve read it, I think you’ll know exactly what I mean.


Also, in a few hours it will be September 22nd here in my little corner of the world, so I'll let this count as my Frodo and Bilbo birthday post.

A lovely little first meeting tale, featuring little Pippin.

I hope to have another challenge up in a day or two.

Challenge!

Here is our first challenge under new management. The first challenge will be for a "cross-cultural" story, featuring a hobbit or hobbits interacting with one of the other races of Middle-earth!

Stories will be due in two weeks, but can be posted to the community early, at anytime between now and August 14. Please include the rating, and put the story behind a cut.

Archive Story

Here's another story from the Archives. This one is from the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] rabidsamfan. It features a lost Sam and a helpful Pippin, and a very clever way of finding your way around Rivendell.

A very sweet reflection on what the Quest meant to the Shire, from Pippin's POV.

I'm a real sucker for young!Frodo and wee!Merry stories, and this little vignette is charming-- as well as having a bit of foreshadowing!
