If you are a reader of "Het fic" (fanfiction featuring male and female characters depicted in sexual and/or love relationships), you may not know about it but Lord of the Rings Fic Recs ( [livejournal.com profile] lotr_fic_recs ), an LJ community that sponsors challenges to gather together fic recommendations, is finishing up its two-week-challenge for Het fics: any race, any characters, fictional person or real person, multiple partners -- as long as the main relationship of the fic is male/female, any rating.

If you can think of a story you've read and enjoyed, please say so on the thread at the Lotr_fic_recs Het Challenge.

Thanks!

~ Leighton, Fredric - Fisherman and the Siren, 1858, detail.

(Looking for some het Frodo, Undine decided to go right to the source....)



Because a decent answer to a fellow-LJ'er's question about where to talk about Frodo. I had mentioned "The Harem," so she wanted to know a little more about that. She also wanted to know where to find fic about Frodo -- het fic. My reply turned out to be so huge, I decided to make it into an LJ entry, so that it would all fit in one place ( -- and I could find it again; I would like to have an easy place to go to find these links again myself).

Notice: To anyone who happens to read this and knows other good rec sources, or feels there are things I didn’t present properly that I should correct, please let me know in the Comments section. Thanks!
