As we come to the end of each year, we think back on the highs and the lows; what we thought we'd do, and what we actually accomplished. We think especially of people we lost…through death, divorce, or misunderstanding. We remember our last conversations with them – what we said and what we would say if we could call back those moments. In hindsight, we know what our last words to them should have been. That is the theme for this month's Teitho challenge: "Last Words".

Gandalf's last words in Middle-earth were "I will not say do not weep for not all tears are an evil." He knew he was departing Middle-earth and who he was leaving behind. His words were well chosen. It's likely that the last words between Legolas and Thranduil were well planned as well, but what were they? Did Arwen, wandering an abandoned Lothlorien, wish she'd said something more before parting forever from her Elessar? And what of those like Arathorn who didn’t know they wouldn't be coming home again?

So many times we wish we'd said more or parted without impatient words. This is your chance to make it right – or not – for someone in Middle-earth.

As always, writers must include Legolas or Aragorn in their story, but they do not have to be the main characters. This requirement does not apply to artwork.

And the winners are:

Beneath the Stars of Elendil by Linda Hoyland 2nd place
The Nature of Regret by Darkover 3rd place
The Scent of Safety by Ragnelle 1st place
When the Chairs were full by Archeress of Silverbow
