We have had many wonderful stories contributed to this contest, with a wide variety of themes, and about many different characters, but they all have one thing in common;they all exist within the world created by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. With a movie about his life being released in May, it seems only fitting that we honor him. The theme for April and May will be Legends.

The Professor is a legend in both the academic and literary worlds. His writing has influenced many other writers, including George R. R. Martin, Terry Brooks, and Neil Gaiman. His stories are full of legends as well.

Aragorn is certainly one, as the king who returned and reunited the kingdom of Gondor after leading armies to defeat the Dark Lord. His ancestor, Elendil, is a legend for leading the faithful to Middle-earth after the fall of Numenor. Bilbo Baggins became a legend in the Shire after his initial and subsequent disappearance, and was talked about for long after his speech at the party tree. Gil-Galad is honored in song and story an age after his death in Middle-earth. The legend of Earendil and the star he wears on his brow has passed through the ages to be celebrated in song, story, and wonder.

Legends can also be stories that are regarded as historical but are unauthenticated. Eorl is said to have tamed Felarof, the first of the Mearas, by ordering him to pay weregild for killing Eorl's father. Bandobras Took supposedly invented golf when he struck off the head of his enemy and sent it sailing over 100 yards into a rabbit hole. It is said that Queen Betuthiel's cats served as her spies, slinking about in the dark almost as stealthily as Gollum.

What other legends might there be in Middle-earth, p assed down from one generation to another? What heroes might have performed great deeds and been immortalized in song or stories? This is your chance to contribute your very own legend while honoring Tolkien's Legendarium.

And the winners are:

Lalaith by Karri 3rd place
The Living Legend by Linda Hoyland 1st place
The Honoured Who Went Before by Carawyn 2nd place
Upsptairs, Downstairs by Altariel 2nd place

If you would like to illustrate any of these stories, you can take part in our special all-year-round artistic challenge!

The Teitho archive does not allow reviews, but as soon as the stories are posted somewhere else online, we will update the stories with a link. Follow us on facebook, tumblr or twitter to get a notification about this!

And this is the winner and participation banner for this challenge:

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderators,
Mirach, Carawyn, Karri, Sian22 and Lotrfan
