October Teitho challenge

Smile! It is not only healthy, raises your mood, lowers the blood pressure and releases endorphins, it is also our October topic!
Smiling is something that is understood by everyone, regardless of culture, race, or religion; it is internationally known. There can be many kinds of smile - it can be spontaneous or artificial, a little smirk or vibrant laughter, it an be friendly, pleased, but also menacing or sad. A smile brightens every face, and it is even more precious in the faces of those, who had to overcome a lot of hardship in life. I am sure it will look this precious on the faces of our heroes - Aragorn and Legolas. So put a smile on their face!

Unlike a picture, your story should not only feature someone smiling, but have this smile as one of its key elements. What difference in a story can make a little smile in the right place? Maybe a little kindness to a stranger that tilts the scales, or the smile of a loved one, remembered in a dark time... It can be anyone's smile, not only Aragorn's or Legolas'. What would Aragorn do for Arwen's smile? Or maybe Legolas for the smile of his father?

The deadline for this challenge is October 25th. If you need an extension, let us know! (We do not bite.)

For writers: send your stories to As usually, the contest is anonymous and the story can't be posted publicaly until the results of the challenge are announced. Aragorn or Legolas don't have to be main characters, but at least one of them must be mentioned in the story.

For artists: Submit your picture into the Teitho gallery folder of Arda-Inspired at deviantArt. The picture should be new, drawn specifically for the challenge. State that you are submitting it to the contest in the artist's comments.
Happy writing and drawing!

Your Teitho-moderators,
StarLight and Mirach
