- Gandalf the Grey
I am looking for someone to share in a Teitho challenge "Unexpected Adventure" that I am arranging in January. I hope it's not very difficult to find someone!
There is a difference between planning a journey for a long time, and deciding on it spontaneously, without even packing all the necessary things like pocket handkerchiefs. Both can lead to a great adventure, but the second has a unique feeling to it. Maybe you have experienced it with some last minute trip or offer. It can be similar to this:
That sounds uncomfortable. It's absurd even thinking about it...
Thinking about it... I actually wonder what would happen if I went.
Actually... why not?
Wait for meeeeeeee!
I can't believe I actually decided to do it.
It can be such a spontaneous decision that lands you in an unexpected adventure, but sometimes adventure can get to you without any decision from your side. You may be suddenly thrown into a dangerous situation, and need to deal with it. This month, let something unexpected happen to our heroes, be it with or without their decision. And by unexpected I do not mean encountering Orcs by a Ranger patrol, or spiders in Mirkwood. I mean something as unexpected as suddenly having 13 Dwarves that invited themselves to a party in your peaceful house.
The deadline for this challenge is January 25th, but can be extended until the end of the month. If you need an extension to finish your story or picture, just write to the email below!
For writers: send your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org. 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!
