Wow! Congratulations to Alpha Ori, Spiced! I didn't even know she'd written a book. Good for her! Here's hoping she wins many more. What's the name of her book(s)?

Sounds lush, Nelya- I have just taken my horses out in the pouring rain and wind for a quick zip round the lanes-we're all soaked! But happy.

I'm pretty uncomplicated.  As a writer I love elves in the late First to early Third Age, though it's not a hard and fast rule and I'll read pretty much anything. For me, fanfiction is about telling a tale featuring characters I know and love/hate, discovering new angles to view them from and new situations they might find themselves in. Maybe that's why I like slash? Now there's a thought....! Also, it's about loving the whole process of writing, something I’ve done since I was in junior school. I can't imagine it not being part of my life.

It's worth mentioning that I write my characters in several different 'verses, which means while they stay true to the core of how I see them (at least I hope so), the stories don't all necessarily fit together.  Please check story notes and labels.

Personal details: wife, mother, live in Cape Town, South Africa, have two dogs and a cat, like reading, painting, listening to music (pop, rock, jazz, classics), taking walks along the beach - and writing.

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.
