This is a very short and rough answer in part to the question of whether the Shire, (or any of Middle-earth outside of Angband or Mordor, for that matter) would have looked like the Europe of Louis XIV's day. It assumes some slight familiarity with the background story of Middle-earth -- at least of the story of Numenor.

A Bit of Rope

Ch. 52: Secrets In The Dark

This is the first time I have ever read of an Orc being almost human.  I love the way you show his memories returning.  Perhaps there is hope for him yet.  (I'm still upset about Eomer dying.  Who will rule Rohan now?)

Ch. 1: Estel

Is the fact that there are no paragraphs an error in formatting or something? It is very distracting and makes it hard to read the story and keep tract of your place.

I like this! Even if the conversation with Merry isn't strictly canonical, I can believe that something like this might have been going on in the woman who later marries Faramir.

Ch. 1: Chapter 1

This story is one the funniest in the fandom and the first one I came across when the LotR fandom was taking off. I love the humor, the impressive knowledge of the canon, and the story telling technique via letters. Brava!

General Comment

I originally read AMC here, on HASA. It was one of the ways in which HASA was a formative experience for me. I was a committed lurker, then, so I did not leave a single comment at the time...
