OK, my co-mod and I have agreed that our NEXT challenge will focus on G-rated fics, so all you folks get your recs ready. However, in the meantime, it is nearly Valentine's Day. It's time for SCHMOOP!!!


Recommend a good Lord of the Rings fan fiction story that is considered a "schmoopy" story which was not recommended in the original challenges (see list behind the cut below). Any genre, slash or het, FP or RP -- but no R or NC-17 rated fics -- G or PG-rated .

Definition: Schmoop is, according to the folks at theglossary, a story rife with overt romanticism -- flowers, chocolates, candles, cutesy pet names, and little to no plot. Sometimes spelled "shmoop." However, a plot is fine with us. We are looking for romance here folks!!! Schmoopy stories that contain no explicit sex -- stories with sweet glances and shy touches, handholding and hugging, tender kisses, and UST out the wazoo.

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.
