Holding Back the Flood  by shirebound
Frodo is safe in Rivendell, or is he? When one of the Nazgūl makes a last attempt to reach him, Sam, Legolas, and Gimli are also caught in his snare... and Elrond’s powers are tested to the limit. Book-verse AU, h/c, and plenty of hobbityness (of course). The canon timeline has been altered to allow Aragorn to play a major role.
