Bio:


I'm Swiss-Canadian and I am a university student. I keep myself busy with horseback riding, my studies, singing and ballet when I can, and working at home on my dairy farm.

I listen to rock music, as well as classical. My favourite bands include Evanescence, Kamlelot, Linkin Park and Three Days Grace. Lady Gaga holds some appeal for me as well.

I primarily read and write fanfiction about Elves, particularly about Legolas and Haldir. I just love those two elves!! I've also posted quite a few of my poems on here, but beware; they are from a dark period of my life now long gone, and some are quite depressing.

I have not written anything in a while because I've been too busy, but I hope that someday my muse will take hold again!

Summary: Some songs the fellowship made up... but Frodo decided not to put them in his book. He was too embarrassed by his behavior in "I Think You're Evil," which soon will be told. Aragorn was too embarrased about his childishness in "My Immortal Horse of Doom." Gandalf thinks he is a fool now in "Yo my name is Gandalf." And last but not least, the ringwraith realizes how he sounded WAY to whiny in his interview in what he got into by trying to be a powerful elven ruler in "I Wanted." There are more, enjoy them all!
