June Teitho Challenge

Many countries celebrate fathers in the month of June. This is why out theme for
this month is "Father and Son".

Since the beginning of time, wisdom, knowledge, lore and love have been passed
from father to son. In sadder cases, hanging onto family feuds, abuse, and
consequences have been among the sins of the father that have been visited upon
their sons. Regardless, fathers carry great weight in the development of a young
man, even when the father figure is not the biological sire. This theme has
always been heralded in Tolkien's world.

The wealth of potential storylines is staggering: you could explore Thranduil
and Legolas' relationship, or show us how well Elrond fathers his many-times
nephew, Aragorn. We have Denethor and his sons to play with, as well as Aragorn
and Eldarion, or maybe Celeborn and Elrond as father- and son-in-law. You could
truly stretch your thoughts and imagine the family life of an orc father and son

As always, we look forward to seeing the tales you spin. Also, Aragorn and
Legolas do not have to be main characters, but at least one of them has to be
mentioned within your story.

The deadline for this challenge is June 30th. Please send your stories and
questions to: teitho.contest@...
