Tolkien Femslash week is doing a challenge which invites you to make prompts from a list of Sappho quotations (or fragments).
The current SWG challenge suggests combining the song prompts with the Femslash challenge, if it works for you.

I like Sappho so I thought this  was a lovely idea. I made up some prompts, in case anyone is interested, i.e. I picked quotations and added a f/f pairing from the Legendarium that came to mind.(I'm afraid some of the more popular pairings are not included.)

They are posted to Tumblr but I'll also copy them in below.

SWG Challenge New Directions

Below is the list of stories submitted for the New Directions challenge. Please remember that while "late" entries do not receive a stamp, they are more than welcome on the archive, so if you're still working on this challenge--or haven't started it yet but want to--please carry on! Links on the list below go to the Table of Contents, where you can find author's notes and more information about the story. If you enjoy a story, please consider commenting and letting the author know.

Annael's Reunion by Kaylee Arafinwiel. After far too long, Annael of the Grey-elves reunites with one he thought lost.

For Those Who Hold a Silmaril In Their Hands by LadyBrooke. Erellont is young when Finrod leaves, and his uncle goes with him.

Legolas of Gondolin by Silver Trails. This is an introduction to my view of Legolas of Gondolin.

The Manly-Hearted Woman by oshun. This is a story of Haleth.

New Directions by hennethgalad. the friends of Eärendil, returning from Valinor
+ mystery guest...

Of Huor of the House of Hador by StarSpray. Six moments in the life of Huor son of Galdor.

A Second Chance by Grundy. "She whom he had loved was Amárië of the Vanyar, and she was not permitted to go with him into exile."

The Snakes and the Flowers by Lyra. A young Vanyarin poet makes some clever observations, the relevance of which only grows apparent in good time.

Sunset to Sunrise by Tyelca. A quiet night at home for Arien, Bearer of the Sun.




If you have not seen our current challenge, Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song, check it out! Fanworks for this one are due by 11 August 2017 to be eligible for a stamp.

As I am in the midst of the Mereth Aderthad, stamps will be later than usual this month. I will try to have them updated by the middle of next week. If there are any drastic changes to that timeline, I will let everyone know.

Dear Artist or Author,

Thank you so much for making art or writing for me! I'm happy that we share a love for these fandoms and characters. I mean the prompts as suggestions only, in case it's helpful to have a starting point (and it’s fine to make art from my fic prompts or fic from my art prompts). If they don't work for you or if you have an idea you like better, then feel free to go with what inspires you. I don’t want this to be stressful, and I’m sure I will love what you make.

Here are the things I've written since the last time I shared stuff here, mostly drabbles and ficlets. It's all Tolkien, for The Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings.

Drabbles, drabbles everywhere

The Multifandom Drabble Exchange 2017 has just been revealed. (This is the same drabble exchange that was run on Imzy last year, but since Imzy is no more, it has now moved to AO3.)

Oh my GOSH you guys. I have ten gifts (or maybe eleven, since something on my gift page is currently stuck in a weird AO3 limbo). I feel like someone just handed me a big basket of puppies and kittens. I'm still in the middle of reading my way through them, and then there's the rest of the collection(s) to look forward to.

I was hoping to go on a treat-writing spree myself, but I was so busy/tired/distracted with Chess that I only managed a set of three drabbles for my recipient. Maybe next time!

The main collection (with one drabble for each person): here
The treat collection (with all the rest): here


Edit: It turns out the extra one was a glitch, but I'm so not complaining. I've read my gifts now and they are all just great.

July 2017 SWG Challenge Just an Old-Fashioned Love SongDuring the month of July, fanworks creators around the world celebrate love. July has been reserved for honoring both the femslash and slash genres. Half of the world is sultry with summer heat, and half of the world seeks nearness and warmth to banish winter's chill.

For this month's challenge, you will use a popular love song as a prompt to inspire a fanwork about romantic or sexual love. You will choose your own prompt from the list of love songs below. More than one participant may choose the same song, and you may use any aspect of the song--the title, all or part of the lyrics, the mood or style of the music, or the music video--or any combination!--to inspire your response. You don't need to claim a prompt or comment or do anything but create your fanwork! Any pairing or poly relationship is acceptable for the challenge.

Our friends at Tolkien Femslash Week will be hosting their challenge as well, and as always, feel free to combine our challenge with your work for their challenge. If you do, please make a note in the summary or story notes so that we can award stamps accordingly.

Since I am a day late in posting the challenge, the due date for stamps will be 11 August 2017.. Late stories are always welcome but will not receive a stamp.

If you're new to our challenges, check out the full challenge guidelines here.
