Over the course of the last few months, I've been participating in a game here at LJ called the Fanfiction Tumble Game.  Here's what it was all about:
The FanFicTumble is a variation of the Round Robin, a story that circles from one writer to the next, each adding his/her own chapter.  With the FanFicTumble however, there's not one story, but as many as there are participants. Everyone starts out with the same teaser, and every writer writes a part for each story.
Eight of us participated, so there were eight stories circulating.  It was really fun each round to get the next assignment and then have to try to figure out how to advance the story to a point where the next person could take it up and run with it.  And exciting, too, to be able to see how imaginative the other writers were at figuring out an interesting plot or an unexpected twist to the tale.  It was also hard, especially when writing characters I wasn't used to being involved with (like Elves!), or trying to figure out how to get a character out of a particularly tricky muddle -- or get a character into one, as the case may be!  :-D

Why am I telling you all this?  Well, because some of the stories have been finished, and are being revealed in their entirety, complete with the names of those who wrote each section in each story -- which had actually been a mystery to us writers as we participated, because the other authors' names were hidden during the course of the tumbling.  I finished my last installment this week and it's been posted for your reading pleasure.

I invite you to click on the following link, which will take you to the Tumble journal where you can access five of the eight stories -- and where the other stories will be available once they are completed.  The one I think of as "mine" -- the one which I began and ended -- is Number 5, and is called The Rider : Safekeeping Their Borders.  But I had input on all of the others, as well, so do have a look and let us know what you think!  There is a place to leave comments, and we'd love to see some.  ;-)

You can also access the link anytime from the link panel here at my LJ, in case you want to come back and read the tales again.  Thanks for looking and reading -- we who participated hope you will enjoy reading these tales as much as we enjoyed writing them!
