“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.”

- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Let us think about some big questions in March: the theme for this month's Teitho challenge is Life and Death.

What's the meaning of life? Who deserves death? What would one be willing to sacrifice their own life for? If saving one life means sacrificing others, what is the right choice? - Those are just a few of those question that the characters in your story may be faced with. There is no right or wrong answers to them, but there may be situations when one has to decide for his own answer, and we would like to see these situations in this month's stories.

In Middle-earth, the answer can depend on race as well. Immortal Elves can view these topics differently than Mortals, and have different priorities. What happens after death is also one of such questions, and so you can set your story or picture "on the other side": in the Halls of Mandos, or even behind the Circles of the World, where the souls of Men go.

Sometimes life and death are separated with a very thin line. You can write about these situations as well - the experiences on the border of life and death, or about those who can bring death or life to others - warriors and healers. How does it feel to take a life with a sword? And how does it feel to hold a newborn child? You can explore these feelings in the story. (In real, let us hope to explore only the second one!). Or write about anything you can think of, connected with death and life, as these are literally some of the biggest topics in the world, that everyone experiences, containing birth, death and everything in between.

And the winners are:

A Matter of Song by Jessica Kleeberger
An Impossible Choice by Emma Killey 1st place
As I Lay Dying by My blue rose
Choose Life by Linda Hoyland
Clemency by ShadowTravel
Hurry Up and Wait! by LadyLindariel
Last Day in the life of a father by Chiara Cadrich
Little Hope by Wunderkind 3rd place
My Pledge by Nyx
The Hands of A Healer by Wanderer of Realms
The Light of Dawn by Idhrenieth
Time waits for No Man by Finfinfin 2nd place
Where You Go, I Will Go by UnnamedElement
Without Hope by Aranna Undomiel

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderator,
Mirach

P.S. March is the "Back to Middle-earth Month", organized by b2mem on LiveJournal again!
