This month we are delighted to report that voting and submissions are up and that many of you replied to last month’s survey about making the new rules permanent. Here are the results!
One consequence of the survey is that most of the new rules will be kept. Another is that the challenge for August and September will be:

Consequences!

Consequences are usually a result or effect of a particular action or condition, often one that is bad or inconvenient but not necessarily so. A negative consequence could be sleeping in and missing an important meeting. Forgeting to shut a gate and letting an animal get free. Or, more seriously, letting an arrow fly to soon, giving away your hiding place. Feanor, who vowed to not rest until the three Silmarils were back in his family’s hands, could not have foreseen all the myriad consequences of his oath-- that the Noldor would be exiled from Valinor for near an Age, that the light of one would be set into the sky forever out of his reach, and that his second son would be doomed to wander the shores of the world singing a lament.

There are clearly great consequences to simply possessing the One Ring, but Bilbo, who resisted its evil for so long, understood there are even consequences to simple everyday acts. “It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door” he said. “You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to.”

Consequences can also be fortunate. Like looking down and finding a lucky penny. Suddenly stopping at a market stall and meeting a new friend. Or turning right instead of left and finding an inn with excellent beer (and possibly a few handy Rangers).

Pippin, prompted by his sincere desire to repay a debt of gratitude, impulsively gave his fealty to the Steward of the High King. How poignant a twist it is that in honouring the elder son who died to save his life, he swore an oath that would lead him to save the younger

And the winners are:

A Man of His Word by sian22 1st place
Falling Out by Eschscholzia
Plight and Prophecy by Idris388 2nd place
The Boys by Altariel
When to Stay by Mirrordance 3rd place

If you would like to illustrate any of these stories, you can take part in our special all-year-round artistic challenge!

The Teitho archive does not allow reviews, but as soon as the stories are posted somewhere else online, we will update the stories with a link. Follow us on facebook, tumblr or twitter to get a notification about this!

And this is the winner and participation banner for this challenge:

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

Your Teitho-moderators,
Mirach, Carawyn, Karri, Sian22 and Lotrfan
