I generally write elves in the late First to mid Third Age though it's not a hard and fast rule and I'll read pretty much anything. I've been writing Tolkien-fic since 2004 and never found a reason to stop. Monofandom for writing though I read and love several others (Good Omens, anyone? X-Files? GoT?).

I write a similar character mix in several different 'verses so the stories don't all necessarily fit together. Some do, some don't, but my people are always written with love (or occasional blind hatred during the creative process).

Personal details: married, parent, live in Cape Town, South Africa. Like writing, hate editing!

Title: The Boys of Summer by Keiliss
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 7]
Summary:

This is not the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, 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.
