Wow- Naledi- you were Maths!! I am an English teacher and so agree. I am so careful - don't always get it right but try to make sure every interaction is positive.

I was a maths teacher too! A really soul-destroying job sometimes, because many children arrived at school already afraid of the subject.

It is sad how a bad teacher can make a child's time at school a misery. When I was teaching I was very conscious that even the most casual, throwaway comment could wound.

I still remember my maths teacher. Pasty faced and smelled of onions. I was traumatised, especially when he told my parents the only thing I was good at was sports.

Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

A Singular Honour by Shemyaza1 Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -1]
Summary: Whilst on an army training exercise in the Mendip Hills a party of soldiers discover that there is something very nasty deep in the forest and ultimately embark on a mission. Set during the War of Wrath. MEFA 2010 Nominee
Recommended by: Caunedhiel
Recommender's comments: A rather unusual take on modern characters in first age middle-earth, also one of the few that i've come across that have done this very well. The humour and individual personalities of the OC's and Tolkien characters will make it hard to stop reading, there is also a good romance twist to this story with OFC/Eonwe which works well in a wonderful way! This is still one of my favorite fanfiction s and one that i have re-read many times

After a Lifetime by December Rated: Explicit [Reviews - -2]
Summary: When it all began, you simply took a blind dive into the unknown. But would have you offered your love to the one you worship, had you known the price he would have to pay for loving you back? Would you trust yourself to know between right and wrong? If you could see the hopeless end of your journey, would you still take the road? And when all was over, would you be blind to see a new road lying at your feet? Would you dare follow it? Would you, Faramir?

Recommender's comments: I really appreciate the way December consider the complexities of emotion inherent in an incestuous relationship. It's not something I see very often, and when it is written, people seem to overlook the emotional coils and prohibitions of such an attraction, when that is actually what they should focus on the most. It's really well done in this story.

The sex is revelatory and savage and beautiful, and the two brothers -- well, they go a long way to making me forget how they were in the films. This is Boromir and Faramir from the books.

A Dawn of Many Colors by Pink Siamese Rated: Mature [Reviews - -2]
Summary:
A thirtysomething college student goes into the woods for a little R&R and ends up in Middle-earth...or in one version of it, anyway. She falls in with the Fellowship long enough to learn some basic survival skills before stepping through a mysterious interdimensional door. She finds herself in yet another version of Middle-earth, only this one is a lot different than anything Tolkien ever wrote about. This is a work in progress

Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments:

The best of the best of any story involving a woman from our world traveling to Middle-earth, but with Mordor very different to what we believe, a female Mouth of Sauron, and other incredible mysteries, it is far more than that.
