Here is, a little later than usual, the new theme for the April challenge:
"When I Was Your Age...!"
Haven't we all heard that sentence in our youth, mostly spoken in a
long-suffering voice by an adult? It would be followed by the story
of a misspent youth or the recounting of a marvelous adventure or a
wise decision we would never have come up with in the same situation.
In the end, there would be a morale, something along the lines of "Do
as I did," or "Don't ever do as I did". And most likely we would take
nothing away from the story, and would instead make our own mistakes!
Or how about the good old "When I was your age..." life was much harder,
we worked a lot more and didn't laze around that much. And because of
that we were not supposed to grumble. At all.
So, for April we want you to write a story that somehow evolves around
that good old "When I Was Your Age...!" Take it wherever
you want, have our heroes learn a lesson or let them roll their eyes
at the admonition they're about to receive. Be as creative as you like,
but don't forget to include Aragorn and/or Legolas somewhere in the
