A gorgeously written 'prequel' to the tales with Lily Proudfoot - Frodo is visiting his Tookish cousins and has a delightfully hot encounter in a haybarn with one of his cousins. Cuthalion writes gorgeous erotic scenes, and this one is no exception.

This story is very sensuous, full of sense details just like a story about hobbits should be. The author did a good job setting the stage for this story, and Clover was an intriguing character. I wouldn't mind reading more about her one of these days. Frodo and Pippin, too, were drawn as approachable characters while still true to canon. I enjoyed it.

Cuthalion and White Gull have been the best I've seen for giving our Frodo the loving completeness we would wish for them. The generosity of Clover is to be commended.
