      Post your request at the Birthday Cards Forum

      31st, IgnobleBard has requested any story set in Tolkien's universe that has a frightening theme or unexpected twist.

      Don't forget to create a story for the birthday card workshop. Enter this story in the challenge for October drabbles, so we have all of wonderful drabbles in one place. (There are instructions on how to do all this at the top of each thread in the Birthday Cards Forum; if you need help just ask Gandalfs apprentice at (gandalfs_apprentice@....)

      Celebrate October here at HASA!

      Converted to our modern calendar the following events of Middle-earth's history are worth a feast, or at least a drabble:

      October 20 - first publication of "The Return of the King" 1955

      October 23 - festival to commemorate the first blowing of the Horn of the Mark in Buckland (3019 of the Third Age)

      October 24 - End of the War of the Rings (Battle of Bywater) (3019 of the Third Age)
