Format: Essay
Genre: Non-fiction
Rating: G
Warnings: n/a
Characters: Hobbits
Pairings: n/aCreator’s Notes (optional): This essay is basically backstory I have constructed for my version of the Shire, concentrating on a few aspects of Shire society, and some explanation for how I came up with that backstory. I hope to later footnote this more thoroughly.
This section is more fanon and RL history than anything told us, so consider this as some wild speculation.
Summary: Tolkien gives us a lot of information about the society of the Shire, but only some of the particulars. Coming up with details is up to the author of the fanfic; here are a few of mine.

Creator’s Notes: This ficlet was written to go with the  lovely artwork created by Mithrial for this year's B2MeM: "Again Yavanna Sang and Nienna Wept" and to thank her for showing us so much beauty in that scene. (Legendarium Ladies April helped me to work out who the characters featured should be.)
