Even if you are not interested in the challenge, please click and then go give Sophie input on her poll here.
This lovely is, of course, by The Theban Band. For more of their fabulous manips and art work, go to (Warning: the home page is NWS) their web site.
We have done this one before in a slightly different version, but to be honest, the various pairings involved deserve their own rec so we are splitting up the original challenge.
Recommend a good story that focuses on a relationship between Aragorn and Legolas which was not recommended in the original (Interspecies) challenges (see list behind the cut below).
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!
Experiment: In the interest of getting Sophie some answers to her poll , I am presenting the previous recommendations in the two formats which she asked for input.
Option 1 provides the links directly to the fics (corrected if needed), with a link to the original recommendation challenge(s) at the very beginning of the list. ETA: Sophie clarified her intent, and this is the actual option she was proposing.
Option 2 provides links to directly to each recommendation, which includes the link to the fic, and provides corrected links if needed. Links to the original recommendation challenge(s) are also provided at the bottom of the list.
Option 1 - Links that go directly to the fics
Here are the links to the Aragorn/Legolas stories that were recommended in previous Interspecies challenges. You can read the recs by clicking on the links to the previous challenges.
