Time for a change of pace. Using Nierwen's beautiful drawing "Rescue from Mt Doom", let's focus on some "gaps" in the story. Gaps that authors love to fill for us.

Rescue from Mt Doom

Recommend a good Lord of the Rings story that is a Field of Cormallen “gap filler” -- any rating, any time period -- which was not recommended in the previous challenge (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 Field of Cormallen “gap filler” is a story that occurs after the One Ring goes into the fire and focuses primarily on any events occurring between 25 March 3019 (S.R. 1418) (“when Sauron fell”) and 1 May 3019 (S.R. 1419) (when King Elessar is crowned and enters Minas Tirith), although it can extend beyond that date. This is a so-called “gap filler” fic, since Tolkien does not go into the events of this month in great detail.

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.
