Calling all writers and readers of Denethor fanfiction!
We're sure most of you know of the fanfiction archive, http://www.fanfiction.net. We're sure therefore that most of you are also aware that currently ff.net doesn’t have a Denethor character sub-section in their Lord of the Rings category. As the fan fiction writers amongst us will know, this is in no way fair.
At last count, in the archive there were approximately 70 stories where Denethor could be considered one of the two main characters (the figure is far greater if we consider all the stories where he is mentioned in the description, though these are likely to be small appearances in Boromir or Faramir stories). This is a larger number than the 44 stories in the Treebeard section, 43 in Lothiriel and about 21 in Celeborn--characters for whom there are sections already.
Does this sound fair to you? Of course it doesn’t. What we predict is that enough of us come forward requesting a Denethor sub-section, then ff.net will have to concede and create one. But how do we go about this? There are proper methods and we believe this is the best way to begin. Here is what fanfiction.net's support FAQ says about requesting new categories:
"You must have a story ready to submit before requesting a category.
Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with all the necessary details."
Our "headquarters" is at this thread on the Brothers of Gondor message board: http://www.menofgondor.com/forum/index.php/topic,168.0.html Feel free to visit it if you have any questions.
