July 2017 SWG Challenge Just an Old-Fashioned Love SongThis is a friendly reminder that if you'd like to collect a stamp for our current "Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song" challenge, you must have your story posted to the SWG archive on or before August 11, which is a little under a week away. This challenge requires participants to choose a love song from the list and use any part of it or its video as a prompt. Find the full challenge at the link above; if you're new to our challenges, you can find the full guidelines and FAQs here.

A few stories have already been posted. You can check out the "Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song" stories here, and if you like a piece, please consider commenting to let the author know.

Stamp Collection Update: I still have not updated stamp collections for the New Directions challenge. I apologize for the delay in doing so. BUT! I am beginning work on them now, so I hope they will be ready to go within the next couple of days. Thanks, everyone, for your patience; this kind of delay will not be the norm going forward but the unfortunate result of a rather chaotic summer.

Also, an important note about reviewer stamps: After today, I will be tracking reviews only for the Hero's Journey, New Directions, and Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song challenges. You can still receive stamps for any of the earlier challenges; just let me know if you review a story in those challenges, and I'll update your collection.

Title: Into the deep
Artist: hrymfaxe
Genre: Fanart
Warnings: None
Characters: Ulmo/the sea

Prompt from the Just An Old-Fashioned Love Song Challenge: Ghost Love Score by Nightwish - and more specifically this part of the lyrics:

Scent of the sea before the waking of the world
Brings me to thee
Into the blue memory


Artist note: When I read those lyrics I was immediately reminded of this lovely story by [personal profile] pandemonium_213: Ulmo's Wife, and its wonderful mix of science (evolution) and the world of Tolkien, not to mention the relationship between Ulmo and The Sea. This is more like an illustration of Pandë's story than an original idea of mine, so credit goes to her along with my thanks for the inspiration.

Another idea employed here is that of the Valar being able to change their form, so Ulmo starts out man-shaped, but ends up as specks of light floating in the embrace of his lover.
