I thought we'd settled that Theodred's Tale belongs in the main
category, not romance? While it has elements of romance, that's not
the main focus of the plot.

I nominated this story of Dana's and while it does take place in Rohan, it is not a story that has anything else to do with Rohan. I suggested the categories Lord of The Rings, Drama, and Hobbits, and the sub-categories Gapfiller, pre-Ringwar, villians, the Fellowship, and Rohan, with Rohan the one that I would think the least appropriate of my choices.

The story is Merry's thoughts and Pippin's, during and after the incident with the Palantir, and I don't think that it fits in Races/Places: Rohan at all.

A Foolish Thing (1031): Dana
PG, Reason for Rating: PG for angst
Romance Partners: N/A
The palantir...what Merry and Pippin saw...

There, peeping among the cloud-wrack above a dark tor high up in the mountains, Sam saw a white star twinkle for awhile. The beauty of it smote his heart, as he looked up out of the forsaken land, and hope returned to him. For like a shaft, clear and cold, the thought pierced him that in the end the Shadow was only a small and passing thing: there was light and high beauty for ever beyond its reach.

Hmm, I honestly can't remember why it was moved to Rohan. Rohan is one
of the categories I handled, but if it was originally in LOTR, it would
have been Ainae who moved it from LOTR to Rohan. Ainae, can you
remember why we moved it?

Moving it won't affect any of my categories, so there's no issue at all
on that front. Ainae, is it okay if we move this one back to LOTR?
