And it seems everytime I press on 'fiction' in the category options the character list reduces. Anyway, my dear Spiced, could we add "Anaire" to the list please.

Old, bookish, nerd, self-employed. Long-time Tolkien fan. 


 


I had to change my transformative works policy lately from 'blanket permission' to write my OC's to 'Please ask'. 


Ziggy, Pink Siamese, Esteliel, Vinvalen and Narya have all written them beautifully; their writing is always around for anyone to see how it's done.


Thank you. 


The change comes solely from the behaviour of Verhalen who is a long-time narcissistic predator. There's so much about him online, although he came into fandom from another sphere and changed his name and all the info is under other names.


But I know who he is including his real name, having sent him a couple of things in the post, and other pseuds, and his behaviour goes back at least 15 years. I don't like to say I'm glad I'm not the only one, but on the other hand, I know it's not just me. He has smeared me and left me no recourse to respond except to behave excactly has he did. He lies, obfuscates, and plays the victim card for all he's worth. It's a long, long pattern, and I do hope people will be wary of him.

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

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.

After a Lifetime by December Rated: Explicit [Reviews - -2]
Summary: When it all began, you simply took a blind dive into the unknown. But would have you offered your love to the one you worship, had you known the price he would have to pay for loving you back? Would you trust yourself to know between right and wrong? If you could see the hopeless end of your journey, would you still take the road? And when all was over, would you be blind to see a new road lying at your feet? Would you dare follow it? Would you, Faramir?
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments: I really appreciate the way December consider the complexities of emotion inherent in an incestuous relationship. It's not something I see very often, and when it is written, people seem to overlook the emotional coils and prohibitions of such an attraction, when that is actually what they should focus on the most. It's really well done in this story.

The sex is revelatory and savage and beautiful, and the two brothers -- well, they go a long way to making me forget how they were in the films. This is Boromir and Faramir from the books.

The Boys of Summer by Keiliss Rated: Teen [Reviews - 0]
Summary: FeatureThis does not pretend to be the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. That is a vast tale of a battle to rival the Battle of the Somme in our own time, with all its moments of terror and heroism (plus dragons, balrogs, and the death of a king). This is just about Gildor, son of Lalwen, and Glorfindel of the House of the Golden Flower (which Gildor assures me sounds better in Quenya) and a little of their experience during those six days of horror.
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
