She Took a Holiday by Ria Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 15]

Summary: A partial response to Aelfwine's challenge "LOTR is like a country song".

It's pretty much full-on filksong, so if you can't stand the idea of country music, avoid it. I personally have always loved the verve and verbal play in good country music. Now with other genres too.

The Campfire by Ria Rated: PG [Reviews - 5]
Summary: A response to Faramiriel's Culinary Challenge (that Faramir should teach Eowyn a cooking skill with some sort of disaster along the way). The concept seemed charming and rather in the spirit of Tolkien. The Stewed Rabbit chapter is one of my all-time favorites.
