It is February again, just like a year ago. Maybe you are reading this topic description, and wondering if you will enter the contest this time and what you will create for it - just like with the previous topic. Isn't the History Repeating Itself? It surely is, and therefore it shall be our topic this month!

If you are at least a little familiar with the Silmarillion, you can find many recurring topics in the Lord of the Rings. The love of Aragorn and Arwen mirrors the story of Beren and Lúthien, and in the place of the first Dark Lord - Morgoth, Sauron rises to try to conquer Middle-earth for darkness again. Sometimes the story is the same, only the characters and circumstances change. Sometimes the characters find themselves in the same situation, but there is a small difference, that changes the outcome of the whole story: given the chance, Isildur kept the Ring. Aragorn, his heir, didn't. There are also characters that stay, while the history passes around them. Is Glorfindel of Rivendell the same as Glorfindel of Gondolin? Maybe the balrog of Moria is one of those that long ago attacked Gondolin, as well.

You don't have to use a story from the old lore - you can create your own, and put the characters into a situation they or their ancestors have already been in before, with the same or a different outcome. And although history repeats itself, I know that your story or picture will be original!

And the winners are:

By Names Unknown by MP Brennan 1st place
Falling Through Fear by Tauriel
Not In Our Stars, But In Ourselves by Darkover 2nd place
Not like Lúthien by Linda Hoyland 3rd place
The fate of Kings, the fate of Heirs by Archeress of Silverbow
The Shadow of Lúthien by Fiondil

In pictures:

Once more unto the Breach by Cinnamonwolfess
Rohan has come at last. by Ragnelle 1st place

Happy reading!
