Ironic Misspelling: A MiniBalrog for Miss Cam

""Every name spelled wrong in _Rings_, a MiniBalrog gets its 'wings.'" [1]

Yes, for a site that mocked those for spelling errors, Miss Cam was unable to spell "enrollment" correctly, even in various versions of the website.

The Fic

Original Header

Disclaimer: All Tolkien's. I don't own Middle-earth or its characters, but they're happy to camp out at my place any time they like. Summary: Hoo boy. The residents of Middle-earth decide that if they want realistic fanfic written about them, they'll have to teach the authors themselves. But things do not go exactly according to plan. Author's Notes: Umm.. right. But hey, look on the bright side! You can get to star in this fanfic! Enrolment at OFUM can be started by e-mailing Suggestions of subjects are also welcome.

Rating: P-13. There may be some sexual references and so on. Nothing bad though.
