||I was a bit late in finding this fantastic site, but I've been posting at fanfiction.net 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 fanfiction.net and Stories of Arda shortly, and then archived permanantly at my fanfic journal (http://tathar-fic.livejournal.com).
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: http://www.fictionpress.com/~tirralirra(formerly 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.
