Pipe Reactions to TTT writing contest

I just finished reading all the winning entries and the honorable mentions. I find them to be very good. Of course, way better than I could have done.

My personal favorite is the one with Sam and Elbereth coming to him. Even though nothing like that was written out in the book, I like to think that all good persons and entities would give support to the ring-bearer and his loyal companion. Thank you Dawn Rinken.

What do the rest of you think of the stories?

Exactly why it's called "Missing" story contest. [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

So, what did you think of them?

I enjoyed them. The authors definitely had the right writing styles going on...

I understand the need for brevity, but I would have liked to read more than just 500 words. I hope that the winners will post extended versions in fan fiction.
