Hey, F-Listies: Looking for LOTR Fic Recs!

Okay, my Star Trek slash piece is done. Now it's time for my next project: female characters in LOTR fandom. *G* I'm particularly interested in Arwen and Lothiriel since they are "offscreen" throughout most of the books and most of what we know about them comes from footnotes and the material in the Appendices, but you know I love me some Eowyn. So, can has recs? *puppy eyes*

Sidewaysedly and out of curiosity, does anyone know of any LOTR modern day AUs? I know of one (by scribe) but I'm wondering if there are any more out there?

Try this one. I absolutely love Lothiriel in it and it has several sequels.

Oh wow. Wayback time. I was always a hobbit girl; would any recs along those lines be useful? Would self-recs?

I have to run, so for te moment I lay before you my Memories categories:

Also, The Making of Samwise, where Rosie Cotton is a major character whom the author obviously dislikes: http://www.west-of-the-moon.net/servlet/ReadSlashStory?storyID=143

And Sunlight on Ash, which is painful and AWESOME:

And this observation:

In LOTR hobbitfandom, frm what I saw, there were basically two factions: slash writers, for whom female characters were caretakers or obstacles, and het&gen writers, who hated slash as being 'disrespectful'. I and a few friends found ourselves between these groups.
