Recommend a good Lord of the Rings story that is told from an unusual or rarely seen Point of View (POV) which was not recommended in the previous challenges (see list behind the cut below). This story can be Fictional Person (FP) or Real Person (RP), any rating and any time period.

Definition: POV is basically the source and scope of the narrative voice -- in other words, whose head you are in during the story.

Note: We are NOT looking for stories written in 2nd person, but stories told from the point of view of a character (or entity) from whom we do not normally hear.

Make sure to include in your Reason: an explanation of the unique point of view from which the story is told.

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.
