Feature Vairë Was a Weaver, or, Real Men Wear Corsets (a farce) by Celeritas

Rated PG
[Reviews - 28]
Table of Contents

Arwen gets bored one day and sets in motion a chain of events that no one except the Author can entirely predict.  Diaphragms are squeezed, things catch on fire, and the whole City seems to go mad for a day, and yet somehow everything seems to end up slightly better off than it started.

Crackfic, inspired in part by Shakespearean farces, Terry Pratchett, and high school spirit weeks.
