Once in a while, we use to have a different type of challenge in Teitho than a simple theme. In July, we decided to have a form challenge, and the form you should write in is a Dialogue!

Dialogue in fiction is a verbal exchange between two or more characters. It is important for a good story to have well-written dialogues. But we want you to do something more challenging. We want you to write the entire story in dialogue, so that it would consist ONLY of direct speech. There should be no other explaining sentences about what the characters are saying to each other. To achieve that, you need to put everything that's important for the story into their mouth. Imagine we are eavesdropping on them, we can't see them, only hear. You can use this to your adventage as a tool to build tension in the story: we listen and don't know what's going on... why did he scream? What was that unfinished word? Is he saying everything, or keeping something to himself? Get creative with the sounds!

So that's how we would like you to build your story. The topic is up to you this time, you can write about anything you want, as far as Aragorn and/or Legolas are at least mentioned. They can be the speakers of the dialogue, but they can also be just mentioned in it. Now, it seems that the challenge is more for writers, but you can take part in it as an artist as well. Draw a picture, where two or more characters talk! Try to capture their expression and gesticulation, so that even without knowing the topic of the talk, we will be able to guess their mood.

And the winners are:

A Wonder to Behold by Raksha the Demon 2nd place
Conversation in the dark by Tanis
Cursed Elves by HannonLeTolkien
Not the Same by Sivan Shemesh
One prank too many by AmazingWriter123 and Meteorite102
"Sneaking!" by Tauriel
Temptation by Darkover 1st place
The Bitter and the Sweet by Petrichora 3rd place
The End of Reason by Brooke 2nd place
The Shieldmaiden Unleashed by Linda Hoyland 2nd place
Unanswered by Snowy the Sane Fangirl

Happy reading!

Your Teitho-moderators,
StarLight, and Mirach
