The copy for these are written by a reader who is on the mailing lists of far too many publishing companies. Why not use some of the dozens of prompts of yet another annual B2MeM to design book covers or ads, write ad copy, review, or draft summaries of books I would not be likely to write? I'm not writing any of these. Do not ask! But if you want to adopt any as plot bunnies, knock yourself out!

Warnings: Character death

Pairings: N/A
Creator’s Notes (optional): This was supposed to be Arien and Tilion. I am not an artist, though, and especially not with abstract art. So random dark shape that was supposed to be Tilion became a wolf, and here we go.

B2MeM Prompt and Path: The Purple Path, prompts one and two: Full Moon and Bronte quote.
Format: Bedtime Story
Genre: Humor
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: The Man-in-the-Moon, Gandalf, Roverandom, Moon Rover
Pairings: n/a
Creator’s Notes (optional): This is a crossover between LotR, The Silmarillion, the well-known table-dancing song "The Man in the Moon Stayed Up Too Late", and one of Tolkien's lesser known works, Roverandom. (With most of the story being with the latter two.)
Roverandom is a charming story, one that was made up for Tolkien's sons John, Michael and Christopher, during a vacation at the Yorkshire coast in 1925. Like The Hobbit, it was a story he told to them aloud, and was written down much later. It was not published in Tolkien's lifetime, but was one of his many works brought to us by the grown up Little Boy Three, Christopher, who was only a year old at the time of its first telling.
The little dog, Roverandom, is the hero of this picaresque story, who goes through many amazing adventures before he finds a home with Little Boy Two (Michael, who was about five at the time of the story).
By the way, I decided to take my first prompt very literally! ;-)
Summary: The Man-in-the-Moon visits an old friend at a Merry Old Inn in Bree, while his doggy friends worry at home.

B2MeM Prompt and Path: Worldbuilding (orange/nonfiction path)
Format: essay
Genre: meta/nonfiction
Rating: General
Warnings: none
Characters: House of Finwë, Valar
Pairings: none
Summary: Fantasy writers, including creators of Tolkien-based fanworks, have long struggled to depict the "otherness" of realms like Aman. In the past, the Tolkien fan fiction community showed a preference for an idealistic portrayal of Aman that left little room for imperfection. My work has long taken the opposite approach, and in this essay, I argue for the artistic need and canonical basis for grounding stories set in Aman in a more recognizable reality of human experience.
