Bio:
A long, long time (well, over sixteen years) ago, in the far-away land of England, a young girl was cut out of her mother (who was blissully unconscious at the time, having suffered a day and a half of torment), and handed to her father. He looked down at her and named her on the spot.
"She's Hannah Louise."
And Hannah Louise she has remained to this day, though now she is Hannahlou or just Lou for short.
In the sixteen years that have passed since her birth, she accidentally stumbled across Lord Of The Rings one day. She fell hopelessly in love with Meriadoc Brandybuck, saw the films, glared ferociously in the diresction of Peter Jackson for his descision to ruin her beloved Merry, applauded loudly in Peter Jackson's general direction for his descision to make Aragorn so deeply hot, and entered the world of LOTR fanfiction, armed with several fluffy hobbit romance fics, and a hang-up over Merry having not been given sufficient attention in the Appendices.
Her pet hates include: spots, well-organised people, stories based on Merry of the films, and people who call her a gingernut.
She enjoys: reading, more reading, a bit more reading, and also some reading. When she is not reading, she is teaching her small but very beloved pupils, or writing very bad poetry.

So funny! I love the last line! Though I am somewhat confused as to which hobbit is which...never mind.

Author's Response: LOL! Thank you! It isn\'t actually necessary to figure out which hobbit is which, just that one of the little folk bested the best of the other free folk. ;) OK, I am just a little biased. :D

One Big Mistake by presnieboer Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 100]
Summary: Marissa Leitner meets the one and only Orlando Bloom in a pub one night and ends up having every fan's dream; a one night stand with Orlando himself. Though they agree there should be no emotional attachment, neither of them has an easy time with it. In fact, Orlando is the first to break their pact and tries to look Marissa up, only to find that she's not interested. But is she really not interested or is something else going on? Will Orlando be able to get her to open up and confess the real reason she's "not interested"? Can a one night stand lead to a relationship? A real relationship?

I know I just left a review but now I remember what I wanted to say in the first place (typical)...I would love to see more of Dom and Brie in this. I know the story is more about Orlando and Marissa, but I thought that your development of the other two characters was really good and that they should definitely crop up a lot more. However, this story isn't my baby, it's yours, so do what you think best...it's served you pretty well until now! This story is wonderful!

Please update! This is very good :) Though I will be angry beyond measure if you kill Merry. He is my favourite...

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad that you like it. Don't worry, I won't kill Merry or any of the good people, I can barely read stories like that much less write them.
