REC CHALLENGE - Merry/Pippin - FPS
We haven't done this one in a while and a few of the original rec links are broken. This is one of the favourite pairings in the fandom likely has some more stories out there we haven't discovered yet. So, with some encouragement from a lovely manip by our friends Ned and Leny at Theban Band, please offer up some new recs!

 ThebanMerryPippin


Recommend a good story that focuses on the pairing of Merry/Pippin which was not recommended in the original challenges (see list behind the cut below). Fictional Person Slash, any rating.

Post your recommendation as a comment on THIS entry please. Oh yes, and it doesn't matter if the fic is now unavailable online -- tell us about it anyway. Perhaps someone may know where it is hiding these days!

Links to all previous responses to this challenge are below the cut. They are links to the recommendation, with the name of the story recommended and the name of the individual recommending it as the link, and any information about corrections to the URL included.

Huh. I try to have a read and the West of the Moon server seems to have fallen over. I don't read a lot of fps, but I was at one time partial to a bit of Merry and Pippin. ;) Will be back.

Yep, it's still down. Maybe they'll get it back up tomorrow. Burden is such a good story.

Title of fic: A Surfeit Of Honours
Author name: prillalar
URL link to story: http://prillalar.com/fic/stories/000279.php
Warnings: None
Rating: PG
Pairing/characters: Merry/Pippin
Complete or WIP: Complete
Reason: Set in the Houses of Healing. Slightly non-canon but that's easy to ignore; Merry and Pippin are charming and funny and perfectly characterized. Though it's a short, light-hearted scene, it's also heartfelt and touching.

Title of fic: A World Without
Author name: kaydeefalls
URL link to story: http://kaydeefalls.oscillating.net/ficaworldwithout.html
Warnings: None
Rating: PG-13
Pairing/characters: Merry/Pippin
Complete or WIP: Complete
Reason: A lovely, even lyrical - but still realistic - look at Merry and Pippin's relationship from Pippin's point of view. The concise scenes paint a vivid picture of how their relationship has changed over the years.
semielliptical From: semielliptical Date: November 1st, 2008 08:46 pm (UTC) (Link)
Title of fic: Harvest
Author name: strangerian
URL link to story: http://members.cox.net/str4ng3r/SR9harvest.htm
Warning(s): None
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: mainly Merry/Pippin, also Merry/Other and Pippin/Other
Complete or WIP: Complete
Reason: Merry is coming of age, Pippin is learning about sex, and their relationship is changing. This story provides a fascinating take on how hobbits might handle sexual relationships and the transition to adulthood in general. The vivid details of hobbit life create an absorbing, realistic setting for this loving look at Merry and Pippin.

Title of fic: Home Is Where You Are
Author name: Pervinca Took
URL link to story: http://www.libraryofmoria.com/merrypippin/whereveryouareishome.txt
Warning(s): None
Rating: PG or PG-13 for the most part, R towards the laster chapters.
Pairing: mainly Merry/Pippin, secondary Frodo/Sam
Complete or WIP: Complete (as far as I know)
Reason: It shows the slow but steady development of Merry and Pippin's relationship from Pippin's birth until about the age of 18. Merry for the most part raises young Pippin and their relationship is loving and mesmerizingly heartwarming.
