Title, author and link to original story: No Stones to Build, Or Wood to Burn by Peregrin Ionad ; http://www.lotrgfic.com/viewstory.php?sid=341
Rating: G
Beta:  -
Author's Notes: The essence of found poetry is that you can find poetry anywhere! A Found Poem is a type of poetry created by taking words, phrases from a significant passage and reframing them as poetry by making changes in spacing and/or lines (and consequently meaning), or by altering the text. In this case, I have edited the original so that I have several sections of ten lines each, with each line being no longer than 8 words. The words are left in the same order, but the sequence of the phrases can be changed and repeated. I added no words of my own, using words only found in the text; though words cannot be added, they can be eliminated. The end result is poetry I "found" in Peregrin Ionad's piece written in honor of Boromir.
Summary: A found poem in which Aragorn mourns the passing of Boromir.

Rating: G
Author's Notes:
 It is with some trepidation and only by the community’s standards that I consider this a remix: in my mind a remix is a reimagining of the whole tale, not a quick ficlet shading in some small part. However, I could not justifiably reimagine anyone’s tale unless the original fundamentally dissatisfied me in some way. Since I have yet to find a fic by this author that dissatisfies, this brief gapfiller will have to suffice.  It takes place near the end of chapter 21 of the original tale.
Summary: An outbreak of fever has turned Peregrin Took unusually somber--and worried.  Merry hopes to take his mind off things with some planning.

We'd like to thank all of the authors who participated, both for allowing their stories to be remixed and for taking the chance of remixing the stories of others-- which can be rather daunting on both counts! And we'd also like to thank our pinch-hitters and betas as well!

We hope you will check out all of the remixed stories, and if you've not read them before, you might also want to check out the stories that inspired them as well! If you enjoy the stories, please let the authors know how much!

Title: Help My Unbelief (the Unbelief remix)
Author: Dreamflower
Title, Author and link to original story: Unbelief by Larner
Rating: G
Beta: Lindelea
Author's Notes: There were so many of Larner’s stories that I would have loved to play with. Unfortunately, the ones that tempted me the most were far too long for a good remix, or would not lend themselves to another author very easily. I began to look among her shorter stories, and found the bunny bit me for this one, as I wanted to know more of her OC Margil. So I decided to retell it from mostly his POV, with a little of Pippin’s thrown in for good measure. Readers of the original may note that a good deal of the dialogue is lifted directly from her story. I did not indicate such with italics, my usual practice with quotes, as I feared that would interrupt the flow of the story. But this is a remix, and I give full credit to Larner for the use of her own words in this story. It is, after all, no more than we so often do to the good Professor himself as well.

My thanks to my excellent beta, Lindelea. Her hard work made this a much better story!

Author's Notes: Dawn, I had a hard time with this and I'm sorry if it shows. Reading through your stories, looking for one to re-mix, just one, and I couldn't decide. I love them as they are! I tried to stay with your original idea, but then it took its own form and way as stories sometimes do. I like your original far better, it had much more oomph! :) The name of this was taken from ee cummings poem, “I Carry Your Heart With Me”.
