Biography:   I was a bit late in finding this fantastic site, but I've been posting at for... wow, over years now! I'm a Christian and (mildly fanatical) lover of hobbits -- particularly Frodo, as anyone who knows me will tell you. **NOTE, 5/4/06: It is with great reluctance that I must announce that all of my current WIPs have been DROPPED. They will be deleted from and Stories of Arda shortly, and then archived permanantly at my fanfic journal ( I am very sorry that it has come to this, but I just don't have the time or the will to work on them anymore. Perhaps sometime in the near, or not-so-near, future I will take them up again and finish them, but as I enter my senior year of high school and prepare to dual enroll in college, that seems like a remote possibility. To all the faithful readers who stuck through my first, awkward attempts and waited patiently for each new chapter - thank you, so very, very much. Your reviews encouraged and inspired me, and I hope they will continue to do so if I am ever able to pick my stories up again. My one-shots and drabbles, andI willcontinue towrite those, although my interests have expanded far beyond LotR now and most of what I write will probably be for other fandoms. I am trying to concentrate on my non-fanfiction work right now, which you can find here: under the pen name of Taryn McKay). Once again, I'm sorry to disappoint you all, but thank you for everything. It's been fun, and I hope to see you around. God bless! ~Tathar**
