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.

Extracts from Erestor's Library Catalogue by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 0]
Summary:


Erestor tries hard to keep track of Rivendell's growing number of books. It can be a bit of a struggle, especially in March.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

This is a catalogue of fictional books added to Rivendell's library in fan fic, with names of authors and links to the stories, as well as details on the books (and a little snark by Erestor).

So it's basically a rec list for stories that feature invented books!

Most of the stories are from Back to Middle Earth Months 2015 and 2016, but it's a WIP.

The Lingering Series by Trollmela Rated: Teen [Reviews - -4]

Recommended by: mangacrack
Recommender's comments: It is the first story of a series, set in the Third Age while the Ring War is resurfacing. The absolutly lovely twist in the storyline: Maedhros survived, managing to stay in contact with Maglor and Elrond. Due to his status and his history it is still not a happy fic (or a slash one, only gen) but there beginning's of healing in the Feanorian's hearts and some endearing hurt/comfort moments.

I recommened the series (three stories so far, but ongoing) especially to those who like what-if fanfictions and those who love Maglor and Maedhros. Fans will get their share, simply for the fact that they are not dead for once and with the author's writing style the series leaves defintely an impression. Certainly I one could get addicted to.

To See A World by Nightwing Rated: Teen [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Pre-LOTR. Injured and alone, Legolas and Aragorn are forced to take refuge in a wintry foreign land. But when darkness encroaches from within and without, they learn that refuge can become a deadly trap.
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments: A beautiful Aragorn/Legolas adventure/friendship. Nightwing is a truly wonderful writer; this story is filled with pathos and danger. One of the first fanfic stories I ever found, and one which made me like Aragorn more than decades of reading the books (or seeing the films. he's just not a favorite of mine.)
It is the one genfic I can keep reading, probably because the relationship between Aragorn and Legolas is so lovely. Unfortunately, it has not been updated in years, (although I recently heard from the author and hope she will return to it.) but it is still well worth the read, as it is a long story and about two-thirds complete.
