Title: Miss Dora Baggins' Book of Manners
Author: Dreamflower
Fandom(s): Tolkien
Warnings: Technically a WIP, but as it's not a story as such, the lack of a decreed final chapter doesn't really matter.
Summary: Or The Shire Hobbit's Guide to Proper Behavior for Every Occasion "Dora was Drogo's sister and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she...had written reams of good advice for more than half a century..." In S.R. 1403, at the age of 102, she presented her life's work to the Shire.
Commentary: A wonderful piece of world-building, adding to the society of the Shire as portrayed in Tolkien's books, with a wise and gently amusing take on proper manners for any number of situations. Even if you don't usually read Tolkien fanfic, this is well worth the time of any Lord of the Rings fan.

'It is the duty of every Hobbit to endeavor to present a good example of Proper Behavior. A Hobbit of the Shire should always keep in mind the Principles of Respectability, which are to be Kind, Hospitable and Predictable. Propriety demands no less.'
