  "The Alphabet of Middle-earth" - Writing Cues for the 'Back to Middle-earth Month 2007'
  By:JunoMagic  March, 1 2007
... no matter if it is "The Silmarillion" that inspires you or "The Hobbit", this is *your* month. Your month to get excited about Middle-earth again, a month to watch the movies, to read books, essays, fanfic, paint fanart, create icons, make fanvids ... it doesn't matter what you do, as long as it's about Tolkien's Middle-earth.

And of course "There and Back Again" has prepared something to celebrate B2MeM again, as well. We proudly present a new series of writing cues for B2MeM:

The Alphabet of Middle-earth

"The Alphabet of Middle-earth" is a series of short cues to inspire you. We have included some very special "characters" so that there are exactly 31 cues to titillate your muses. One for each day of B2MeM. We invite you to pick up any cue, any time and to post your take as a comment for the relevant entry in the LiveJournal Community "There and Back Again" or over at the "Henneth Annun Yahoo Group".*

Write a drabble, a drouble, a tribble, a quabble or a quibble! Write 100, 200, 300, 400 or 500 words! No matter if it's serious or silly, anything goes.

• Anonymous posters are very welcome to post their takes as well, but please remember to include your pen-name so we know who you are!

• If you write something that is not suitable for the general audience (rating R/NC-17) please post only a link to the ficlet and provide suitable warnings.

And here's already the first cue for the first day of the "Back to Middle-earth Month 2007":

A - like an antagonistic Arwen.


Have fun, have muses, have drabbles!

Yours
JunoMagic & Aranel Took

  Ring-a-Ring-a-Challenge: Writing Cues for B2MEM (25)
  By:JunoMagic  March, 25 2006

Write *whatever* you feel like: a drabble, a poem, a filk, a short story or a novel...

And here's the Challenge:

In the "Tale of the Years" Tolkien tells us about what happens to certain characters each day of March 3019. We challenge you to write about the character(s) he does NOT mention.

Today's entry in the "Tale of the Years" is:

"March 25. The Host is surrounded on the Slag-hills. Frodo and Samwise reach the Sammath Naur. Gollum seizes the Ring and falls into the Cracks of Doom. Downfall of Barad-dūr and passing of Sauron."


So what happens to the characters NOT mentioned in this entry by name? Or characters, such as wives, children or bad guys, that must have existed, but were never mentioned at all?

Here's your chance: tell us about the characters that Tolkien did not mention for this day in Middle-earth, March 3019!

Share your takes at HA, at the B2MEM Workshop, "Ring-a-Ring-a-Challenge"  at HASA, at the writers' workshop “There and Back Again”, or here at TFF!

  A/N for Chapter 13 of "Shadow"
  By:JunoMagic  March, 24 2006
A/N for chapter 13:

"Ach, du lieber Augustin"/"O, my dear friend Augustin" is an old folksong that is attributed to one Marx Augustin. This was a singer in Vienna during the second half of the 17th century.

The story about the song is this: during the plague of 1678/79 Marx Augustin collapsed after a long night spent drinking and partying outside the tavern which is today called the "Griechenbeisl"/"Greek Shed", at the time probably called "Rotes Dachl"/"Red Roof" . The corpse patrol assumed he was dead and put him on their cart. Eventually he was thrown into a common grave along with several dead bodies. When Augustin finally woke, he screamed and screamed, but no one heard him. At last he made up the song "O, my dear friend Augustin". Only then he was finally heard and pulled out of the grave.

So the song is real, and the singer, too. But Katharina and her father are purely figments of my imagination.

(http://ingeb.org/Lieder/achdulie.html)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (http://www.mozartproject.org/ ) was really a man who loved bawdy tunes and silly jokes – his wife's second husband "edited" quite a lot of his letters so that their language might not be regarded as offensive by posterity. It can easily be assumed that Mozart knew the silly-scary song about Augustin and liked it, about one hundred years after the song was originally written.

The other events portrayed in this chapter are historically accurate for the most part, too:

In May 1781 Mozart came to Vienna with his employer, the Prince-Archbishop Colloredo. Subsequently they had an argument, and Mozart was dismissed (May 9/10) and the quote about his dismissal is quite famous. The Latin quote was something his father said about the severe illness of Mozart's beloved sister Nannerl, years earlier.
If Mozart really drowned his anger and disappointment in the tavern that is today called "Griechenbeisl" is not known, of course. But Mozart stayed in Vienna, and sometime during 1781, he composed the melody to the poem "An die Einsamkeit"/"To Loneliness" by Johann Timotheus Hermes.

(http://www.amazon.de/exec/obidos/clipserve/B000005GJB001009/303-7406195-3385839)

Mozart died in 1791 of what may have been rheumatic fever, only 35 years old. He was buried in a common grave, his fame already on the decline and the location of the grave is lost.

There are sources concerning the weather: May 1781 really turned unseasonably cold in Germany and Austria, but during the summer the grapes dried up before they could be harvested. And the winter of 1791 was bittercold.

I hope you enjoyed this chapter!
