The Beyond Universe
It begins with a "what if" question, as do all Alternate Universe stories. What if Frodo had to leave Bag End and make his own way in the world? There are a lot of things to experience beyond the borders of the Shire.
lovely sketch of Frodo is by Slipperieslope; you can check out
her other art work at her livejournal.
