AU. Two years after Sauron won the war, his Orcs have come to a Shire under Saruman's dominion. The hobbits that are its proper inhabitants are caught in the middle. Told in drabbles and drabble-increments (200, 300, etc.) Warning: Deals with post-war occupation and the kind of subject matter that often entails. Coarse language, references to rape and other violence, but non-graphic.
