Sat Jan 25, 2014 9:54 am (PST) . Posted by: mirach_ravaia Pssst! Hey, you... Yes, I'm talking to you. Come closer and take a look at what I have for you. A new, fresh Teitho challenge. Just look how nice it is, how inspiring! Shhh.... Don't resist. Let it touch your mind and seduce it into producing a wonderful story or art. Who could resist, when our February topic is... Temptation? (Our thanks for the suggestion goes to Harpy's Quill.)
Temptation is present on every step of the journey, be it a real walk or a methaphorical journey to reach something. Heroes are those who resist those temptations: the one to turn back, the one to leave the task to someone else, to choose an easier and more comfortable path.
Aragorn and Legolas certainly overcame many such moments. You can draw or write about one of them: Aragorn leaving Rivendell and Arwen, Legolas leaving his realm and father behind, either of them being tempted by the Ring at some point of their journey... You can write about temptations big and small: the little selfish wish to not share a few strawberries found on the side of the road, or even a female temptress, trying to mislead the hero of the story from his path.
The deadline for this challenge is February 25th. If you need an extension, let us know! (We do not bite.)
For writers: send your stories to email@example.com mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org. 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 http://arda-inspired.deviantart.com/ 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!
