with all my lovely elves created there. *g* But it looks as I really should give it a go soon, and keep a lookout for the new one. :)

Interesting news about the new game. I've bought Shadow of Mordor some time ago, but never really played it so far; I'm not playing often and when I do, I'm still stuck at Skyrim

(Used to be known as Winterwitch)


Middle-aged, German, Tolkien lover since I first read the Hobbit at age 10 and LotR soon afterwards, and many times again since then. I've started delving deeper into Tolkien's other works only in 2012, but the Silmarillion has already taken over as my favourite.


I discovered the fascinating world of fanfiction in 2006 and spent some years in the Potterverse, reading, writing and translating fanfic in German and English. In late 2012 I was drawn into the Tolkienverse which became my main fandom, and also added podficcing to my fannish activities.


Tolkien's elves fascinated me right from the start, from 1st to 4th age, and I am a bit obsessed with/have a very soft spot for Elrond, his family and friends.
