Nice story :). I loved the Tolkien quotes, they tied in really well, and the way Fleur used that as a mantra was great too.
I liked that you had Bill falling apart - from the books he seems to be a strong character, but it shows that after the war everyone breaks at some point. You also created the tension really well between Bill and Fleur.
I found the ending a little cliched, but it was also sweet and nicely rounded off the story.
That was brilliant! I chuckled through quite a few bits. Perfect characterization too, I thought. Playful and serious and fun too. I'm sure you'll win. Good luck :)
