I suppose they'd have a heart attack if I told them I'm writing fanfic in English these days. *g*

experience like you, Alpha, but with English: two English teachers told me I should try to get a job where I wouldn't need foreign languages as they judged me too little giftd in languages.

My father was a maths teacher, too, which wasn't always easy for me, *g* - my classmates considered it as uncool in a major way to be daugther of a maths teacher. And I made a similar

Wow- Naledi- you were Maths!! I am an English teacher and so agree. I am so careful - don't always get it right but try to make sure every interaction is positive.

I was a maths teacher too! A really soul-destroying job sometimes, because many children arrived at school already afraid of the subject.

It is sad how a bad teacher can make a child's time at school a misery. When I was teaching I was very conscious that even the most casual, throwaway comment could wound.

I still remember my maths teacher. Pasty faced and smelled of onions. I was traumatised, especially when he told my parents the only thing I was good at was sports.

Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

A Singular Honour by Shemyaza1 Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -1]
Summary: Whilst on an army training exercise in the Mendip Hills a party of soldiers discover that there is something very nasty deep in the forest and ultimately embark on a mission. Set during the War of Wrath. MEFA 2010 Nominee
Recommended by: Caunedhiel
Recommender's comments: A rather unusual take on modern characters in first age middle-earth, also one of the few that i've come across that have done this very well. The humour and individual personalities of the OC's and Tolkien characters will make it hard to stop reading, there is also a good romance twist to this story with OFC/Eonwe which works well in a wonderful way! This is still one of my favorite fanfiction s and one that i have re-read many times

Escaping Isengard by Zoop Rated: Mature [Reviews - -18]
Summary: At the end of despair, when all hope has faded, a woman facing the last moments of her life finds the will to survive rekindled by one whose kind robbed her of it to begin with. Now she must decide which evil is the lesser: stay with the beast, or risk worse by leaving him. She soon finds that the horrors she faced in Isengard were not reserved for those in the breeding pits alone.
Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments: This story is awesome and refreshingly original...
Featuring a Rohirrim woman enslaved by Saruman to serve in the "Breeding Pits" for the creation of his Uruk-Hai, and an Uruk who turns out to be far more than a monster, it has an unlikely cast but tells a surprisingly touching tale...
Also, I have to note that this story features a good amount of Black Speech expressions, for which I am the author eternally grateful. ;)

Carmina Brethilia by Robinka Rated: Mature [Reviews - -17]
Summary:

Or an account of the battle in the forest of Brethil as seen by Beleg Cúthalion, told in two parts.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

This story is an unusual take on an unusual subject--and as such highly interesting!The protagonist, as often in Robinka's stories, is Beleg. But not necessarily the same Beleg  we  already know: this, I suspect, is one of the toughest Belegs around.  Although very much a Sinda and in touch with nature, he seems unusually robust and soldierly. (So does Robinka's Mablung.) This is definitely a Beleg who has spent a lot of his time patrolling the borders against orcs and other malefactors, dealing with a merciless enemy. Yet Robinka's Beleg by no means lacks a heart; he has a knack with children and is ready to sympathize with the young and weak. The Battle of Brethil is an episode in the history of Beleriand that is often overlooked--and yet it is not only the exception to the rule that Thingol withdrew his troops from any major involvement in the struggle against Morgoth after the first battle of Beleriand: if we believe what the Silmarillion text says, this was in fact the battle that stopped Morgoth's troops advancing further into Southern Beleriand at the time of the Dagor Bragollach and therefore an important event at a time of great turmoil in the history of Beleriand.The battle of Brethil--or rather the friendship between Doriath and the Haladin of Brethil more generally-- is also the exception to Thingol's general rule of non-involvement with Edain (before his daughter took a hand, that is). It is not often one sees a lot of the Haladin, except for Haleth herself. Robinka devotes considerable attention to the Haladin community, as observed by Beleg as a friendly outsider, and to the characters of Halmir and Haldir. We also get a glimpse of young Hurin and Huor. This all might sound like a very masculine proposition. But in fact the story features not one, but two strong original female characters. Beleg's love interest may be involved in the gentler pursuits, such as cooking and library work, but she is still headstrong and independent-minded. And Beleg's female colleague Sullinn is a formidable Ranger, who is capable of giving Beleg a run for his money!Chapter One deals with the run-up to the battle. As such it begins cheerfully, even humorously, but the tension mounts and in the description of ugly incidents such as happen in real war, Robinka pulls no punches. She should be strongly encouraged to write the next chapter and give us the battle itself.

A Dawn of Many Colors by Pink Siamese Rated: Mature [Reviews - -2]
Summary:
A thirtysomething college student goes into the woods for a little R&R and ends up in Middle-earth...or in one version of it, anyway. She falls in with the Fellowship long enough to learn some basic survival skills before stepping through a mysterious interdimensional door. She finds herself in yet another version of Middle-earth, only this one is a lot different than anything Tolkien ever wrote about. This is a work in progress

Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments:

The best of the best of any story involving a woman from our world traveling to Middle-earth, but with Mordor very different to what we believe, a female Mouth of Sauron, and other incredible mysteries, it is far more than that.
