Oh this was just funny! A very different Frodo from the one we normally see, this Frodo is a veteran of the hard and unforgiving fields—of football. I suppose this would be the "worst young rascal in Buckland" at his best, managing to be caught in the middle of past and present lovers, both of whom have excellent reasons to be charging hard and trying to put the soccer ball into his forehead rather than into the net. Classic triangulation that begs for Freud for to come do an analysis of the interpersonal dynamics. A blend of modernism, fun, and slashy eroticism—won't be everyone's cup of tea, but I enjoyed this.

This story has excellently well written action scenes. And come to think of it, the football (soccer for us American) sequences are well-written too! Ah, smut! ;)
