Biography:   Greetings! Here is Rey, a lover of crossovers and many more... I am a 24-year-old female from Indonesia, prefering to use UK dialect when writing English and US dialect when speaking English, and hoping to learn more languages still. I use a screen reader to do things on the computer, as I am blind, so I'm sorry if there are silly spelling errors that I do not manage to catch; they might be homophones. I love J. R. R. Tolkien's works, although some of them are admitedly too dark for my taste. (And reading The Silmarillion was quite a painful experience initially with all those old-fashioned and flowery language, given the fact that I am an EFL speaker and learnt English nearly by myself.) I love crossing them over with other people's works, though, mainly The Harry Potter Series; you can find those in my other accounts. Other than here, I have works strewn in many places. I am: * Virodeil in Many Paths To Tread, Harry Potter FanFiction, FanFiction.Net, FicWad, and LunaEscence; wind rider in Lord of the Rings FanFiction, Shur'tugal FanFiction, and Silmarillion Writers' Guild; I might have forgotten nsomething from the list above, though... I hope to see you all around the site and enjoy this excellant archive together. Rey

For SWG's Birthday Celebration in 2010. We know how the Vanyar are so few in number and so solemn, but not why. We know the names of the Quendi, but not how they came about – but one evening someone told it by the campfire: a first-person point of view of the lost days around the Lake of Awakening and some more.

Nobody likes to be cooped up indoors for too long, and nobody likes to be watched too closely – even by good-intentioned people. An eight-year-old Estel living with his mother and foster father in Imladris has the same opinions, at least, and one afternoon his dream of visiting the Bruinen alone comes true… Gildor wishes to rest awhile in the hidden valley from his wanderings, but his current visit to Elrond's abode is troubled by a missing certain young Adan… What happens when they meet?
