    From lotrips_finders:
    jme24576 - I'm looking for 2 things - 1. I'm trying to figure out what other fanfic sites (besides Library of Moria) the fics, "a fair price" by "Oakenshield" & "the test of the fellowship" by "Morgana" were posted on, so if anyone can help me out, that would be great (I'm trying to find a specific fanfic site (not LOM) & I'm pretty certain these fics were posted on it) (also, even if the website has been taken down, I'd still like a link).
    And 2. I'm trying to find any other fics that have a similar plot to "a fair price".
    Today's BOOK question: What was the name of the younger son of Elendil and, with his brother, second King of Gondor?
