"Estel, you are not trying!"

Swords clashed in the courtyard.

"You are distracting me, Elladan!"

"Do you think that there will be no distractions in an attack?" his brother called, intentionally forcing Estel's attention away from the flashing weapons.

"There is no such thing as try!" Estel shot back, seemingly randomly, surprising both himself and the twins. "Either one does, or one does not." A sword thrust accentuated each word as he attacked. "In this case, I am."

"Elrohir! Be wary... our little brother has gained some wit at long last it seems...." Elladan called to Elrohir with a teasing smirk.
As orginally submitted to the B2MeM month long contest.

Challenge: Create a story, poem, or artwork that responds to the following quote: "Do, or do not. There is no 'try'."

Part of a collaborative entry consisting of100 word drabbles.

This is the first piece I saw, and I already like it. I like the names and stuff and also how you wrote. I also like the title. ^^

WoW Glad to hear that the first impression was a positive one :). I do have to give due credit though, the names are the property of Tolkien (hm... I'd better check to make sure I've got that noted somewhere...).

Ah alright, yeah now that you mention it, it sounds like the styles of Lord Of The Rings. But still, your pieces in particular are written well. ^^

May I ask you how have you come to choose these characters for this challenge, not others?

You certainly may ask! However, I fear my answer may not be what you're looking for. For this challlenge, I don't really remember 'choosing' these characters. Rather, they simply wrote themselves into the story, not that I was about to complain though.
