Sorry for not updating the Snowball Fight. I've been busy and I thought I had a problem with the story. Now that's over, I'll be updating.  - April 20/09

I also have another account on this site: Daewen.

I enjoy anything Tolkien, The Chronicles of Narnia, Pirates of the Caribbean, Anne of Green Gables, and Redwall. My favorite elves are Elladan, Elrohir, Legolas, Erestor, and Glorfindel. I love celtic music, Michelle Branch, Loreena McKennit, Kelly Clarkson, the High Kings, Superchicks, Evanescence and Within Temptation. Oh, and of course, Enya!!! I also like Keith Urban, Hey Monday, Flyleaf and Versaemerge. And I just found Wardruna. Hail Viking brothers! (yes, I am Norse).

I like the movie versions of The Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia (I love Prince Caspian!!!), although they could have done without the way they changed the way the Pevensies were with each other. I agree, there would have been fights, but not as much as in the movies. And Shrek. And I can't wait for the Hobbit movies to come out!! Oh, and I really want to meet Viggo Mortensen. I want to be a writer/singer/songwriter/actress/director and  and am in the prossess of writing books so I'm trying to work on writing here.

 My favorite colors are black, red, and silver. I typically go for "rocker" styles though I can go for the princess things too, though I try to mix them. Why can't princesses enjoy that kind of livestyle?

Everything seen here is mine and can only be used by permission from me. If you would like to use my characters, poems, etc, please ask and outline your ideas. Thank you.

I like your style and I like talking to you. Oh, and you love Legolas! Right on! And I'd love to hear the story about chasing Erestor through Rivendell with a knife. It sounds interesting.

You are good and you have a lot of talent. I hope to keep reading things from you. I know personally it's really hard but if you keep writing and believe in yourself you can do it. And you can always count on me to read and review:))

Mae govannen, Echohan. This is Shadow Maiden. I'm keeping my eyes on you *in a friendly way* I really hope to get to know you better through your stories and through mine.
8. elven lily
I really like talking to you and reading your poems. They inspire, cast away the dark of the world and tell me to remember what that light of Valinor really looks like.
9. Henoluin_Elsilim
With writing that you do, you should already be published! Keep doing what you're doing and send something out to be published, you are brilliant! I have admired you since I joined this site, and though I may have let you slip through the cracks, I have never forgotten you completely. I love your stuff. If you write a novel, I'll buy it.
10. I am an Elf
I am an Elf, you have become a friend of mine and I doubt that I will let you fall in the cracks of my life. You are a good writer and I love hearing from you.
11. iggybaby
I love reading your stories, but especially your poems. You are able to put into words things that I never thought you could. You have inspired me to be more than I ever thought I could be.
12. Imaginigma
Oh, I love your writing: clear and descriptive. It feels like what's happening in the story is happening to me.
13. Kitt Otter
Kitt. Wow. I mean with a name like that you immediately had my attention. You are so much fun to talk to. I really should do that more:) Keep going!
14. Lorian

I love reading your stuff. Interesting view points.

17. Radbooks
Your storytelling ability is amazing. I love reading your stories and hope you plan on adding more.
18. Scribetothehighking
We have already conversed several times and you intrigue me. I realise that my 'story' (which I know is stupid) probably has lost my interest, please continue to read my stuff, because I will continue to read yours.
Shadow Maiden. (Thanks for the help. You have inspired me with your words and poems.)
19. Spiced Wine
Sian, I just don't know what to say. Your writing is so clear, I can soak it in with all my senses.
20. Tari_Elensar
You have my mind reeling! I can't wait for more. Please hurry! Legolas is one of my favorite characters and my heart is bleeding for him.
