What is the Lord of the Rings Plot Bunny Community?

The Lord of the Rings Plot Bunny Community is a help for fan fiction writers to plot, shape and write fan fictions. There are a lot of authors out there who have nowhere to turn with their latest plot bunny that just refuses to co-operate. Others don't know how to build a story, or need help with criticism. Maybe you get one or two plot bunnies a week and have no time to write them yourself, and as thus want to someone else to write them.

Who runs this place?

All six Plot Bunny Communities are maintained by the_plotbunny and tinuviel_reborn, who are not only fan fiction writers and great Lord of the Rings fans, but also two helpful and nice persons :)


The Lord of the Rings Plot Bunny Community is not affiliated with J.R.R. Tolkien, New Line Cinema, Rayner Unwin or anyone associated with the Tolkien's books. It is not endorsed by any of the aforementioned parties. Rights to the characters and their likenesses are neither claimed nor implied. No money is being made out of any of this.
