I enjoyed [livejournal.com profile] lindahoyland's challenge, so I am issuing one myself.

In the spirit of Linda's original challenge, this story should feature an animal companion of one sort or another, and include these six words:

grass
sunshine
soft
pleasant
song
water

I don't have a banner to offer, but I hope that some of you will rise to the challenge!

Linda Hoyland issued a challenge: http://lindahoyland.livejournal.com/851464.html?style=mine#comments

So here is my response!

Reubens challenge

Wall
Cat
Bear
hungry
sunset
window

It was a pleasant late afternoon, the rock wall on which Strawberry lay was warm and she was stretched out to her full length basking in the early summer sun. She was beginning to feel the least bit hungry, but not hungry enough to move from her prime spot.

"Good evening, Strawberry. You look like a very contented cat. Can you bear my company?" She opened her eyes to see her person standing beside her. He placed a soft hand on her head and she butted it firmly, letting him know she welcomed his attentions. He began to stroke her, and she purred loudly. He gave her a smile and she looked into his eyes and blinked slowly to show her affection. He boosted himself atop the wall, and she stirred herself to allow him to hold her.

Climbing onto his thighs, she kneaded them thoroughly, and then lay atop one of his arms--the one with a missing claw on its paw. With his other one he began to pet her again. Together they watched the sunset, until the stars appeared and light shone through the window behind them.

They were content, enjoying one another's company, until they heard footsteps coming. It was one of her other persons. "Mr. Frodo, it's getting late! Rosie's putting supper on the table." He glanced at Strawberry, and gave her a pat. His hand was not as soft but it was pleasantly warm.

Strawberry sat up at the interruption, and licked her paw twice, and then jumped down and ran off. She really was quite hungry now, and if her people were going in to supper, then there was likely a dish of cream by the kitchen door.



This was fun! I may issue my own challenge! And I hope some of you other cat persons will take her up her challenge too!

There's a collaboration post up at [livejournal.com profile] b2mem for anyone who'd like to work with others on a project to find people to sign up with them.

My comment is here: http://b2mem.livejournal.com/338683.html?thread=5446907#t5446907

[livejournal.com profile] ceshaunessy and I have found someone to help out with the music, but we'd really like to also find an artist--it could be traditional or digital or whatever!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] lotr_community is having a rec challenge for February. You can find it here--http://lotr-community.livejournal.com/366089.html

The challenge is to make three recs: a self-rec, a fic rec and an art rec!

It's been a long time since I made a post. I am determined to start posting more often, and am going to try to make a post every day this month.

However here it is almost bedtime, and I had yet to post. So have a pic of Miss Belladonna Took on our front porch.

Bella 1

Also, finally finished and posted my [livejournal.com profile] lotr_community fic, Nothing So Mortifying, in which Frodo helps Merry through a difficult time. It's a day late, but at least it's done!

I hope to be a little more informative tomorrow!

Over at [livejournal.com profile] lotr_community we are having something kind of fun and different for our fifth anniversary of MPTT!

It's a comment-fic challenge. But not the usual sort. Instead we mods are posting story starters, and asking you to continue the stories. Head over there and see if you are inspired to continue the stories. So far we have one each for TH, LotR and the Silm (First Age). There will also be a Second Age and Multi-Age starter to come.

We are also having an Art Challenge too!

I hope some of you will come and help us build the stories, or contribute some art!
