Bio:

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.

Summary: There is a group of elves gathering in the south, returning to Middle-Earth from a long ago exile. They are the Avari, The Unwilling, those who never set sail to Valinor and never looked upon the Light of the Two Trees. They are led by an elven lord who is anything but fair. Petulant, stubborn, and most especially spoiled, he is bent on having his own way.
In the middle of this steps a human girl, the only one so far to have met Kirinien, the spoiled lord. What will her role be in all of this? Subtle Legomance themes included.
