Hello fellow Tolkien-lovers. I'm heading stateside for a couple of weeks so probably won't be online much. Take care, all - may the muses be generous!

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

Welcome, Readers!

I write for the most part in Tolkien's world, so that is the primary, but not the only, fandom you will find here.

Whether you're a vet who read the books way back when or are a newcomer to the movies (I fall somewhere in-between, having read the Hobbit at a tender age but really sinking into it after the first movies came out), there's something for everyone.

Part of what makes Tolkien's mythos so wonderful to write in is the rich and unmined potential of all the things he left unexplored: the backstories and events, relationships and characters that might only have received passing mention in the tales themselves.

I try to bring something new to Tolkien's world when I write in it. So whether you are in search of a more traditional fantasy-action-adventure or a quiet drama or something in-the-middle, you've come to the right little corner.

Some adventure, some romance, some slash, even a bit of fluff mixed in with a whole lot of drama, and a deeper exploration of characters as relatively obscure as Aerin from the Children of Hurin to Aragorn. My portfolio grows every year, and I continue to strive for quality and to uncover the stories behind the story we know and love so well.

Whatever you're looking for, I hope you find something here. Comments, questions and criticism are always appreciated.

A slightly more detailed profile as well as more of my works can be found here at https://www.fanfiction.net/u/283693/Marchwriter or on my livejournal: http://marchwriter.livejournal.com.

Best,

Marchwriter
