*waves from the wilds of Florida where intermittent internet access is achieved by the energetic efforts of 15 Jack Russells on a hamster wheel* My thanks to Sophie for holding it together while I grappled with dial-up for a while. Access is still "as needed" but a bit less intermittent.


Recommend the Lord of the Rings fan fiction that contains a memorable portrayal of Samwise "Sam" Gamgee (later known as Sam Gardner) which was not recommended in the original challenge (see list behind the cut below). Fictional Person fic, 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!

And remember, you can now recommend one of your own fics, but only after recommending someone else's. (Please put "SELF REC" in the subject line for clarity.)

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.

Previous "Samwise" Recommendations:

"On the Road Home" by rubynye recommended by rabidsamfan

"Betters" by Lost Owl recommended by trilliah

"Reckoning" by abbynormal recommended by elasg

"The Making of Samwise" by billthepony recommended by capra_maritimus
(Invalid story URL) -- Corrected link for story

"Time and a Little Nurturing" by elenya54 recommended by blackbird_song


And for those of you who like to see the original recommendations in the original post format -
