This is elanorgardner apologizing for the silence here at lotr_fic_recs. I have been much preoccupied of late with the other pressing parts of my life. In addition, my lovely co-moderator, sophinisba informed me back in November that she is also overwhelmed with other obligations in her life and will have to step back as co-moderator of the community (although she did kindly offer to remain, as she has always been, chief link-updater and tag checker.) Thank you Sophie for your selfless work here at the community. MWAH!
