Took-fics!

To round off my second month of recommending Lord of the Rings, have I ever got a hobbit romp for you!

"Too Many Tooks" by Mariole
http://www.west-of-the-moon.net/servlet/ReadGenStory?storyID=262

Fandom: Lord of the Rings (book)
Pairing: Frodo/OFC (actually, multiple OFCs....)
Rating: NC-17
Length: 61,508 words

Why you should read this: I've been saving this rec. I defy anyone to read it and then say there is no well-written hetfic around! It is by turns blisteringly hot, side-splittingly funny, and charmingly romantic. The OCs--especially Pippin's three sisters--are all distinct and vividly characterized, and not one of them is a Mary Sue. I was quite surprised when I did the word count, because it just flew by when I was reading it!

Warning: Features a non-con scene, but it's easily skipped, and the author does a good job of letting you know where to stop reading if you don't want to read it.
