B2MeM Challenge:
"But when Aragorn arose all that beheld him gazed in silence, for it seemed to them that he was revealed to them now for the first time. Tall he seemed and yet in the flower of manhood; and wisdom sat upon his brow, and strength and healing were in his hands, and a light was about him."

B2MeM Challenge: Middle-Earth marketplace 2015. The prompt was to create a fanwork that answers one of the questions on this test on the Tolkien Sarcasm page. I chose question 8 - if Frodo hung the Ring on a chain, why didn't the chain turn invisible? – and turned the question over to Middle Earth's sharpest minds. Well, to Merry and Pippin, anyway.

Format: Short story
Genre: Humour
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Pippin and Merry, with some Frodo, Elrond and Gandalf
Pairings: None

Summary: "The caterpillar started it." Merry and Pippin are infected with a sudden bout of investigative fervour. Can Rivendell cope with two lively hobbits whose hunger for answers threatens to surpass even their hunger for food?

B2MeM Challenge: This is for the shameless self-insert prompt by [livejournal.com profile] binkaslibrary--Come on, everyone does it at some point ;) So I dare you: write about meeting your all time favorite Tolkien character. What would you do if you met him/her? Would you faint? Would you bow in reverence? Or maybe you would throw an inane number of questions about Middle Earth at them... ;) Anything goes! Rating/content/genre up to the writer. Good luck, fellow fans!
Format: Ficlet
Genre: Humor, Fluff
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin and Me
Pairings: n/a
Creators' Notes (optional): See, originally this was not a self-insert, this was a “someone-else-inserted-me insert” from the incomparable [livejournal.com profile] grey_wonderer that began as a comment fic back in the summer of 2005. It kind of grew in the telling, and became a story known as “The Pepsi Saga”. If you have her friended, you can access “The Pepsi Saga” through my memories (http://www.livejournal.com/tools/memories.bml?user=dreamflower02&keyword=hobbity%20adventure%20from%20GW&filter=all) and the last chapter was really a self-insert, as she allowed me to write it, and it's in my POV. It's called “Night Out at Barnhill's”, and is in my LJ.
And, by the way, this is also a slightly late birthday gift for Shirebound!
Summary: I have another visit from the Fab Four (no, not the Beatles), and they bear gifts and greetings to another mutual friend of ours.

B2MeM Challenge: "We know that Éomer wrote to Merry at the end of his life, but it seems logical they would have had other correspondence over the years. It would be really neat to see the letters exchanged between the Lord of the Mark and the Master of Buckland." (Prompt by Dreamflower)

Format: Short story
Genre: Epistolary. Faux scholarship. Gen.
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Merry and Éomer
Pairings: References to Éomer/Lothíriel, Merry/Estella and Pippin/Diamond, but none of these are the focus of the story
Author's Note: When Tolkien is silent about the timing of certain Fourth Age events (e.g. Merry's marriage) I've chosen dates of my own. I've gone for a later date for Merry's marriage that might be expected, because I wanted Pippin to experience at least one rite of passage before his older cousin.

Summary: Meriadoc the Magnificent is a popular figure of folklore, but how many of the stories are true? What, for example, is to be made of the claim that he regularly corresponded with a king? After centuries of bitter debate, at last these questions can be answered. Thanks to an extraordinary discovery, at last can Meriadoc and his king speak to us in their own voices, clear across the gulf of years.

B2MeM Challenge: Family traditions
Format: Short story (if going by overall length.) Actually one newspaper cutting, one extract from a learned book, two ficlets, one historical note and 4 pictures.
Genre: Light humour, family, art, faux scholarship, gen
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Characters: Pippin, Merry and various future Took OCs
Pairings: n/a

Summary: The tradition has survived for nearly two thousand years. It has evolved over time - the goats were quietly dropped - and sometimes it has almost been forgotten, then revived from a dim memory. Thain Peregrin started it. But what does it all mean?

B2MeM Challenge: This prompt by [livejournal.com profile] hhimring: Someone opens the pages of a book and something falls out.
The book is either a volume from the Rivendell library or the personal copy of an inhabitant of Rivendell. It could contain Bilbo's translations from the Elvish or an ancient elvish lay or be a ledger of household accounts--there are many possibilities.
What is it that falls out of the book: a fragment of a letter, a pressed flower, a ripped page or an elaborate bookmark, maybe? Does it evoke memories or trigger a discovery? Perhaps it even has some kind of special powers?
Who is it who opens the book--Elrond himself, someone who lives in Rivendell or a visitor?
This could be set at any time since the founding of Rivendell and feature in very different types of stories.

And this prompt by [livejournal.com profile] the_winterwitch: Any kind of fanwork - story, art, craft - show us or tell us about a book/scroll/manuscript from Elrond’s library. Title, description, summary, cover, binding, endpapers, the art of book-binding, illumination or anything related, or a story about one particular book, be it its creation, history, content, or just playing a major role in any kind of story. It doesn’t have to be a complete work/book either. Anything goes here, provided it centers around anything that has to do with the Library of Rivendell.
This could be set at any time since the founding of Rivendell and feature in very different types of stories.

Format: Short story, art,
Genre: Friendship, Nostalgia, Calligraphy
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Aragorn, Arwen, Erestor, Merry, Pippin
Pairings: Aragorn/Arwen
Creators' Notes (optional): See the end notes.
Summary: When Aragorn and Arwen come to visit Rivendell some years after becoming King and Queen, Erestor has an interesting find to show him, and his guests, the Thain and the Master of Buckland.

Title: The Swallow
Author Name: Rhymer ([livejournal.com profile] rhymer23)
Prompt: "'For our spring and our summer are gone by, and they will never be seen on earth again save in memory.'" (Galadriel, The Fellowship of the Ring, "Farewell to Lórien") Write or create art about a character who has reached old age.
Summary: Having said his last farewells to the Shire, Merry visits Edoras and its King one final time.
Rating: PG

B2MeM Challenge:
Format: Story
Genre: recipe!fic
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Bilbo, Frodo, Merry, Sam
Pairings: n/a
Summary: During a spring visit by little Merry, Bilbo, Frodo and Sam introduce him to a Hobbiton custom.
Author's Note: In this story Frodo is 20, Sam is 9 and Merry is 7, or about the equivalent of 13, 6 ½, and 5 for the children of Men. This story happens between Chapters 6 and 7 of my story "A Place for Gandalf", though it is not necessary to read that story to understand this one.
I was originally stumped for a title, but then got inspired when I posted my other B2MeM project. The title is from "The Garden Song".
Prompt: In spring the greens are shooting up in gardens and in the wild; the streams are teaming with fish, and the hens are laying. Create a story or a work of art featuring a Spring seasonal food. Bonus for including a recipe.
