Biography:   It seems that The Hobbit Movie has moved many of us fanfic writers to come out of hibernation. I am happy to be back amongst Tolkien fans and am currently rewriting an original story that I started in 2003, finishing in 2005. And now 10 years from starting that story, I am rewriting it. Boy did it need to be revisited. I hope this process will get my juices going for more stories and other aspects of life. Much has changed in the decade that has passed. I hope to explore some of these changes through our beloved characters.
bullet *REDONE* Creation Song of Ilúvatar Last Updated: 11/30/2013
Story of the Royal Family of Mirkwood and a young woman who appears mysteriously and has a great vantage point from which to observe both the light and dark moments of life in Mirkwood. Explores Silvan/Avari culture. In my mind and in this story the wood elves are what outsiders would describe as feral, but also joyful despite the great losses they endure, a glimpse of what we see in The Hobbit. *Story has been edited and reworked! Will post reworked chapters weekly to biweekly!*

bullet The Plunge Last Updated: 9/18/2013
Set just prior to and in the first years of the Years of the Sun in the First Age. Fingolfin’s host has made it to Middle Earth where they encounter orcs in the Battle of Lammoth. This is the story of the consequences of that battle and the Noldor coming to terms with their new home and identities, centering on Fingon. Part of a series where I will explore the House of Fingolfin in the early years of the Years of the Sun.

bullet Sea Song Last Updated: 7/25/2013
The Feast of Reuniting finds the House of Fingolfin relaxing around a fire. Fingon is bold, Turgon is reserved, and Fingolfin loves his sons. A short character study that I hope to eventually flesh out into a larger story centering Fingon.

bullet Belen Menel Last Updated: 3/20/2008
What follows is the mystery of an iron gate found in Ithilien following the War of the Ring, and its connections to the coming of the Woses. Legolas and Faramir, and a cast of characters, including OCs, and one omnipotent observer are in for a journey into the depths of...well the story will reveal that. A mix of adventure, mystery, and humor. A short story to renew my writing!

bullet Creation Song of Ilúvatar Last Updated: 4/26/2005
Story of the Royal Family of Mirkwood and a young woman who appears mysteriously and has a great vantage point from which to observe both the light and dark moments of life in Mirkwood. Sounds very much like a Mary Sue, but I am afraid she strays from the guidelines. Watch out for large Elven Male egos!

bullet Oropher and Ereinion: A Last Discussion Last Updated: 8/28/2003
My take on Oropher and Gil-Galad's last discussion in the Battle of the Last Alliance. Oropher's history with the Noldor is explored and many of the reasons for Oropher's mistrust of the Noldor are laid out as I envisioned them. Much angst and loss.
