78. 2014 February Challenge: Fanon-busters by Rhapsody

[ - ]

The February Challenge has the theme "Fanon-busters". The Tolkien fandom and fan fiction have existed for decades and, in that time, have accumulated their share of fanons. From much-beloved (but noncanonical) pairings, to aspects of a character's appearance, to traits and historical events of a specific group or family, we all regularly encounter and most of us use fanons in our own writing and art. For February's "February Fanon-buster" challenge, select a much-loved or much-loathed fanon and write a story that does the opposite of that fanon. Three extra elements were assigned to the author to be included in the story.
