The Good of the Many. While the phrase was made famous by another franchize, the theme is certainly also seen in the stories of Middle-Earth, and will be the theme for June and July.

There are countless times that an individual or small group was willing to make sacrifices in order to let good thrive, and the quest to succeed.

Frodo, of course, is a prime example, and gave all that he had to complete the quest he was appointed to. When he left the Fellowship and Amon Hen he never expected to see them again, and he knew well before Sam that there was little need for them to ration supplies for a return trip.

Faramir rode to Osgiliath with a small group of men, knowing that it would be impossible for them to retake the city, but also knowing that the doomed attempt would allow the Rohirrim more time to arrive to break the siege.

Beren, along with a small group of elves and the hound Huan, hunted Carcharoth, a werewolf crazed with pain and wielding the power of the Silmaril, in order to protect the residents of Doriath.

And sometimes this consideration for the good of others shows itself in more unlikely heroes. Fredigar Boldger, for example, might not have been a hero in the classic sense of the word, but he fought back his terror of the Black Riders long enough to ensure that the alarm was sounded, and his neighbors and town kept safe.

And of course there are many who went to war in each age, leaving behind parents, spouses, sweethearts, children and friends they hoped to protect.

Whatever example of sacrifice of the few inspires you to write, we hope that you'll share your story with the many readers who will enjoy reading them!

And the Winners Are:

Categorical Imperative by Annafan 1st place
Come Back to Me by Carawyn 2nd place

If you would like to illustrate either 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:

You can use it if you create anything inspired by it, even if it's too late to enter it into the contest!

Happy reading and congratulations to the winners!

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