Shhhhh....
Listen.
Do you hear it?
Our theme for October is Music.

It was at the beginning of Arda, the Music of Ainur, creating a world from emptiness. Still it resonates in every fibre of Middle-earth. No wonder that music and songs have such a power here...

You can measure the strength of your will in a duel of songs, like the one of Finrod and Sauron long ago in the First Age of the world, or like Tom Bombadil, who sang the Old Man Willow into sleep, and drove the Barrow-wight away with a song. You can find a lost friend when he replies to your song, like Fingon found Maedhros, or like Sam found Frodo in the Orc tower. A song can bring news, or give hope.

There are many songs in the Lord of the Rings, and almost everyone knows to sing - Men, Elves, Hobbits, Dwarwes, even Orcs and Eagles. There are serious songs of lore and history, dirges, battle song, bath songs, walking songs, drinking songs, or just songs for fun... the repertoir is unlimited, just like the stories you can write.

Write a story about the power of music, about favourite songs, music instruments, learning to sing or play one, use musical terminology in a story, let the music sound! Just remember Aragorn and/or Legolas must be mentioned in the story.

Thanks to Nat for the suggestion!

Here are the stories from this month:

A marching song for all by Archeress of Silverbow 2nd place
Out of Darkness, Song by Mirach
Shieldmaiden's Song by Darkover
Song of Hope by Linda Hoyland 3rd place
Soul Song by Fiondil 2nd place
That a Voice Be True by Ragnelle 1st place
The Music of Her Life by Rebecca Wilkin 1st place

Happy reading!

Your Teitho-moderators,
nautika, StarLight, and Mirach
