Biography:   I started into this fascinating world by writing an essay about gender and Tolkien fanfiction writers, then began writing fanfiction myself. My first short story set in Rohan grew into a 92 page gapfiller, and then I simply kept on writing. I'm a big culture and resources buff with a penchant for writing about more obscure characters and time periods, but also my dear, underrepresented-in-fanfic Dwarves. **edit 4.26.06** I've spent a lot of the past 2 years writing primarily Harry Potter, but I'm thoroughly enjoying delving back into my Tolkien roots, currently with a focus on Gimli. Hope you enjoy both the older and newer stories! There's a link to my website now, where you can read all of my stories, the few slightly adult and slash ones included.

bullet Celestial Quartet Last Updated: 11/23/2003
Four vignettes spanning three ages of Middle-earth, multiple geographies and races, and several points of view.
