My stories offer adventure, romance, (occasionally) a little slash, even a bit of fluff mixed in with a whole lot of drama.

Primary emphasis: Elves (Silm and LOTR) with a special love for Haldir and Aragorn.

Comments, questions and criticism are always appreciated.

Current Projects (2018-2019):

* Finish drafting latest in Invictus universe (Haldir and Aragorn adventures, non-slash)

* 2019 My Slashy Valentine.

Best,

Marchwriter
