Misunderstandings is the theme for June, suggested by AcrosstheTallGreenRiver.
Between strangers, they can lead to hostility, between friends they can lead to quarrells. And it's so easy to misunderstand someone's words, actions or intentions...
Different races or cultures can be a sourse of misunderstandings as well, as a certain word or gesture can have a different meaning for them. Such misunderstanding can happen at the royal court of Gondor, for example, with the ambassadors from other land, but also in the Shire while enjoying the hospitality of Hobbits: Bringing a present to a birthday party, instead of expecting to get it? Faux pas indeed!
And the winners are:
A Strange Folk by awilliamsbbc.98
Of Kings and Kine by Eschscholzia 2nd place
The May Cup by Linda Hoyland 1st place
Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!
