We are back with our 101st Lord of the Rings Fan Fiction Recommendations Live Journal Community Challenge! *throws confetti and streamers*


To start us off, what better than a challenge that is fun and funny and all inclusive -- gen, slash, RP, FP -- any genre. Recommend a good story that is FUNNEH -- any genre, any rating -- which has not been recommended previously (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!

Definitions: A FUNNEH story is a story that makes you LOL, ROTFL, giggle, chuckle, smile, laugh. Angst is not completely verboten, but please, no sobbing clowns (no “Ridi Pagliaccio” please). Focus on the FUNNEH here folks!! In your “Reason”, please detail why that you feel the story is outstanding for its use of humor.

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.
