For May, the theme is If I could turn back Time. Forgive us
the bad Cher-reference, but we couldn't pass this one up:)
What would happen if a character could turn back time, relive a moment
and change the past? It would be a chance to wrong past mistakes, or
spare loved ones pain: Who would not jump at the chance? However, would
the outcome always be better or do things really happen for a reason?
If Elrond could turn back time, would he actually push Isildur into
the Crack of Doom, ring and all? How would that affect the future? Aragorn's
future, in particular? Or imagine Legolas taking a deadly arrow that
was meant for a friend? What would the outcome be?
On first glance, this seems to be a very angsty theme, but it could
just as well be humorous. Remember "Groundhog Day"? What would happen
if Aragorn could relive a day over and over again and anticipate everyone's
moves? Chaos would ensue, naturally!
This is a wonderful opportunity to play "What if...?" games and twist
canon around a bit. Just remember to stick to the rules of the Challenge,
other that that: Anything goes!
This month's theme was suggested by Celebdil-Galad and Christa (unrelated
to each other) in similar form. Thanks for that!
