Rhapsody

Story Favorites    Author Favorites    Links
Biography:   Regarding writing, I am truly a jack of all trades like a bard. My taste and bunnies vary from ages, races and characters, although Maglor has claimed me as his bard, sometimes he reluctantly shares me with Celegorm whom I so love to write. I have a soft spot for the Dunedain, Fëanorians and Númenoreans. I discovered my love for this craft at a young age, as a child I always dreamed of becoming a writer. I choose this screen name because the name has something poetic and the meaning of the word Rhapsody surely fits me as a person. My mother tongue is Dutch, so I am a second language author. Please bear with me as I hope to grow and learn writing stories. I promise you, it will be a fun ride.

bullet With Friends Like These by Jay of Lasgalen Last Updated: 3/7/2009
The story is a series of misadventures chronicling the early, 'teenage' years of Elladan, Elrohir and Legolas. Action, humour and angst.

This series starts in TA 147. Elladan and Elrohir are seventeen, Legolas is twelve. I have made one very small departure from canon, and moved Arwen’s birth forward by 100 years. This was necessary so the four can grow up together in the course of the story.

bullet Sad But True by Ecthelion of the fountain Last Updated: 5/5/2007
A story for Celegorm the fair, the third son of Feanor. An attempt to give the life of a simple villain more details without turning him into someone who deserves sympathy. It is based on the accounts from both The Silmarillion and HoMe, to be more specific HoMe 3 and 11. Rated PG-13 for the possible cynical and biased views of the characters.
