Oops, thought I was in the Best Ending poll. XD Voted for Time and Tide, but didn't mean to. It was great, but there wasn't much Tolkienian inspiration.

This was a pretty hard choice, but Parellels won me over. The forging of the Avohkii and all of Takanuva's destiny was a really clever way of reusing the old "One Ring" poem. Shadows of the Past was also really good, as well as Where He Dwelleth None Can Say, just with shear, but subtile, amount. Best of luck to you all (of course I mean to my entry! :P)

I voted for Where He Dwelleth None Can Say, however it was an extremely touch choice between that and Shadows of the Past.

I loved and voted for The Shadow of the Past. Amazing story. My compliments to you, Zoma.But what I find amusing is that my story is nowhere on any of these polls. Hmm... I have a sense of foreboding (that I didn't win anything).Best of luck to everyone, and may the odds be ever in your favor.

While many of these stories were really great, "Where He Dwelleth None Can Say" reminded me more of the LotR books / movies, so I think it's the appropriate one to give me vote to in this poll. :):music:

I voted for "I will return". I feel that is the biggest and more smooth nod to Tolkien here.

Wow. No votes for me. Sad. I thought my "Your leechcraft would have me crawling on all fours like a Rahi!" was pretty good. I guess that's competition though.
