Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

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
