The Teitho theme for May is "Capture". With this theme, we celebrate the 100th theme of Teitho, a fanfiction and later also fanart contest that, we hope, captured the imagination of many writers and artists.

Do you want some tips what to write about? Think how many of The Fellowship endured capture during the quest! Saurman detained Gandalf and "had a mind to capture the Ring, for himself." The Uruk-hair took and held Merry and Pippin for days despite Boromir's efforts to protect them. Faramir takes Sam and Frodo to Henneth Annun. Later, the Orcs of Cirith Ungol captured Frodo, with 'help' from Shelob and Gollum.

Those are all physical captures, but there are also emotional and mental captures. Aragorn captured Arwen's heart to the point she sacrificed her immortality. Sauron sought to capture minds through the Palantirs. The sea-longing tugged at Legolas' heart, but was there someone that had a special place in it earlier in his life? Did young Estel capture an animal as a pet? What was Elrond's response?

If one of our heroes is the victim we want to see them escape or rescued. But what if he is the capturer, like when Aragorn's hunt for Gollum was finally successfull?

Let this theme capture your imagination. Will you rescue your captive, free them, or will they sacrifice themselves for a greater good? We look forward to reading your stories and seeing your artwork.

And the winners are:

And as a little bonus to the 100th challange, we have shared our Teitho Memories. If you would like to share your memories as well, you can send them to our email teitho.contest@gmail.com, or post at O.A.A., and we will add them here.

Happy reading!

Your Teitho-moderators,
StarLight, and Mirach
