I''m a 26-year-old girl from Austria. I''m totally obsessed with hobbits, especially Frodo. I have written some German stories but in May 2003, I decided to have a try in English as well. Now I''ve almost totally switched to English stories and am always trying to improve my style.

None of the places and characters are mine. I've merely borrowed them from Professor Tolkien.

bullet Spellbound by shirebound Last Updated: 4/7/2005
What are the Barrow-wights? Why did the wight tell Frodo that they were “waiting” for him? What did it plan for the hobbits, and why? How were the hobbits lured up to the Great Barrow? What explains why Frodo was treated differently than the other hobbits, awakened sooner, and found the strength to resist the call of the Ring in such a desperate situation? This story is my own look at the events on the Barrow-downs from the FOTR chapter ‘The Fog on the Barrow-downs’.

bullet Promises by Ariel Last Updated: 8/18/2003
*A star as bright as Frodo Baggins should not be taken from this world without leaving something of himself behind.* ----- As long as I could remember, it has always struck me as the greatest tragedy of the LOTRs that neither Frodo nor Bilbo, the two most exceptional hobbits of the Shire, ever had an heir. I know many people have written stories like this, but this is my take on how Frodo might have left a part of himself behind in Middle Earth. AU, though does not contradict canon, OC,
