Biography:   Greetings! I'm not certain why you are reading my profile, but since you are, I might as well make the best of your time and tell you something useful. Or interesting. Maybe even both. And I'm going to work from the assumption that you're reading this profile for one of two reasons. One: You're trying to determine if my work is worth reading. Two: You've read my work and you're wondering just what goes on in my head. So let's see if I can answer both.

I write LotR fanfiction because I can't get the characters out of my head and the only way to quiet them for any period of time is to write their stories down on paper. Or on the computer. The primary characters in my head that clamor for attention are Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli. But there are certainly others. Faramir is prominent, as are Elladan and Elrohir. The hobbits will slip in from time to time, and Eomer and Eowyn are not to be underestimated. Celeborn and Thranduil will periodically gang up on me while Imrahil and Boromir take a more subtle (but hardly less effective) approach. However, the key players seem to be Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli, so at least one of the Three Hunters will play a prominent role in many of the stories.

As for what kind of stories I write, humor is important to me. As a way of life, I try to look for humor in every situation, and that trickles into the stories. But I also try to find a balance where angst is not overpowered by light-heartedness. And angst is another key ingredient, because I enjoy seeing how characters react to extreme situations. Action and adventure gets my blood pumping, and drama is a wonderful tool for character introspection. In short, you're likely to see just about anything from me. But humor and dark angst are prominent.

And that is essentially me as a writer of LotR fanfiction. I hope you enjoy the stories and come back for more. And remember to leave a review if you feel so motivated. They're really the only form of payment I get, aside from my own satisfaction and peace of mind.

bullet A Light in May by Antigone Q Last Updated: 9/13/2009
A storm brings travelers and a mystery to peaceful Imladris. It's a "whodunnit" told largely from the point of view of young Estel, but also includes lots of Elrond, Gilraen, Legolas...and a little of Lovely Glorfindel for good measure. The end of the story, "A Long Awaited Conclusion," is now posted. Enjoy.

bullet Aragorn's Moment by docmon Last Updated: 1/24/2007
WINNER 2007 MEFA Award! In FotR, we read: “Their farewells had been said in the great hall by the fire...Bilbo huddled in a cloak stood silent on the doorstep beside Frodo. Aragorn sat with his head bowed to his knees; only Elrond knew fully what this hour meant to him.” I have always wondered what Tolkien meant by that line: what did that hour, that moment mean to Aragorn? What was going through his head? What did Elrond know that no other did? This vignette is my interpretation of the moment.

bullet Deific Flame by Bejai Last Updated: 11/27/2006
From the second age of Middle Earth to the third, few of the elders of the elves remain to guide the young. Still, relics of an ancient world exist, for good and ill. Divine banes return in a blaze of revolution, betrayal, war, balrog, death, and, perhaps, the indifference of the Valar. Yet there may be tempering strength in a refiner's fire. Featuring Galadriel, Celeborn, and Amroth -- their son. Chapter 12: Victory, of a sort, as seen from afar.

bullet Answering the Call by docmon Last Updated: 1/28/2006
FIRST PLACE in 2008 MEFA Awards! A series of vignettes in which each member of the Fellowship hears the call of the Ring-and answers it. My take on the big What-If, pursuing the possibility for each character to take the Ring. Varying degrees of angst, drama, action, and perhaps a little more angst.
