I had another weird June challenge idea, thanks to a conversation with lignota
, this one not nearly as doomy as the one I came up with last year. If anything, it is an attempt to counteract the doom which many of us have inflicted upon a particular character. Thus, I propose:
June, 2015: “We’re Sorry, Celebrimbor” Month
If you’ve written about or drawn Celebrimbor, you likely know how it goes: Before you is an innocent blank page, and, next thing you know, terrible atrocities are befalling Celebrimbor.
Sure, we can fault the Professor for depicting Celebrimbor during the final unhappy phase of his life and thus egging us all on.
But really, it’s time to stop passing the buck.
It’s time to apologize to Celebrimbor for all that we have done.
How does one apologize to Celebrimbor, you ask? So many options. Write a story or create fanart where not-bad things are happening to him! Make a craft he would like to wear, or prepare a meal he would like to eat, and upload photos of it! Make a fanmix or a filk! The possibilities for not treating Celebrimbor with heinous cruelty are extensive.
