24 year old yorkshire lass living in leeds.

I love LOTR and any thing to do with it, have read most of Tolkien's works many times and love them in all forms. Am a fan of the the books,movies and even the stage musical.

I will read just about anything but not too keen on slash unless it is very well written and romantic.

I love the elves of Middle earth, my faves being legolas, glorfindel, haldir, elrond, the twins, actually all of them.

Getting around to posting my stories, takes more confidence than i realised!!

Truly believe some of the fanfiction authors are better than some published ones!!

Favourite author other than the ones on this site - J.R.R Tolkien, Eoin Colfer, Katherine Langrish, Cornelia Funke, JK Rowling, Maria.v.Snyder, Anne Sewell, Brandon Sanderson, Kristen Cashore, Jane Austen, Emily Bronte and many more, I will read just about anything :)

Sons of gondor, of rohan, my brothers. i see in your eyes the same fear that would take the heart of me. a day may come when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of fellowship, but it is not this day. an hour of wolves and shattered shields when the age of men comes crashing down! but it is not this day! this day we fight!!! for all that you hold dear, on this good earth i bid you stand men on the west!!! -- Aragorn LOTR ROTK

This is the continuing saga of a 36 year old female soldier who finds herself in Middle Earth during The Return of the King. This is part three of a series which will follow the plot of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings books. She is not a tenth walker and the events as written by Professor Tolkien will not be rewritten to accommodate her. Her part in the story and her interactions with the main characters will occur in places and times that Tolkien did not include in his writings.

I claim ownership of none of J.R.R. Tolkien's original plot or characters; however, Elaura and her story Typically Atypical are Copyrighted © 2006.

great chapter, i thought you might put the blue wizards in somewhere but i wasent expecting it quite like that, very clever.
well written as usual and love the images you create with your words i also love elaura more as time goes by, her attitude "tough crowd" i love it. thanks for writing and keep up the good work

Author's Response: No one was more shocked than I, believe me. I had no idea until the words actually showed up on the page.

Thanks for the support and for the review. I\'m taking a chance and posting the next chapter without proofing . . . I\'ll probably have to fix it, but I need to get some sleep. PT test in the morning. Take care!

hello, hope you had good leave or wherever you went and thanks for writing again, loved this chapter but nooo what an ending. write again soon because it makes me happy lol :) thanks you again

Author's Response: Thanks. I\'ve already got half of 35 written. Unless I have a block I\'ll probably finish it in the next 12 hours or so. I\'m glad you were online when I posted. I think you are the first to read the new chapter.

Thanks again for the review. I had a great leave, but it was way too short as usual.

that was cool elaura kicks ass in dream world too
nice chapter keep it up

Author's Response: If only she could get that flying thing down. Anyone can overcome their dreams as long as they know it\'s a dream. Thanks for the review!

nice chapter
will farin have any more in this story i like his character

Author's Response: You aren\'t the only one who likes him. I hadn\'t planned on keeping him around, but he\'s so popular.

Thanks for the feedback!

Reviewer: elfenears Signed
Date: 07/01/07 Title: Chapter 14: Life Lessons

another great chapter
is the ability to enter dreams part of the bloodstone's gift?
keep up the great work xx

Author's Response: Thank you. I\'m still not sure what the Bloodstone does. It enhances Elaura\'s natural abilities, which is a really good thing physically since she wasn\'t in great shape when she came to Middle Earth. On the other hand, if it enhances her maternal instincts and her people skills, there\'s no telling what kind of mind-games she\'ll get twisted up in.

Thanks for the feedback!

so cool chapter

your right about heart of ice lol

keep it up

will you continue after the war with legolas and her having a life together?


Author's Response: For a bunch of old guys they sure don\'t know much about women! I\'m glad you liked it.

Yes, I\'m sure there will be more after the war is over, lots more if what is bouncing around in my brain is any indication.

Thanks for the review!

Author's Response: You\'re absolutely right! I\'ll have to fix that right away. Thank you! Thanks for reviewing, I\'m looking forward to the battle too!

Date: 15/01/07 Title: Chapter 17: "Sanity is madness put to good uses." – George Santayana

i could never do that act nasty but its a very good idea can't wait for the black gate part

Author's Response: It reminds me of a child star who played the mean girl on Little House on the Prairie. She said for years people would come up to her on the street and tell her what a horrible little girl she was. People who knew her just told her it was because she was such a good actress. What surprises me is that the natives are good actors as well. Even Gimli!

Thanks for the review, I\'m looking forward to the Black Gate as well.

really great chapter
thank you for updating so quickly keep it up, i love reading your work

Author's Response: Thanks! As I said in the previous response, I\'m only trying to think of a title for chapter 47. I\'m drawing a blank on chapter 48, though. Must be something new around the bend.

Thanks for the review!

nice chapter
ooo i like the eyes idea
keep on writing your story is brilliant and also distracts me from college assignments thank you lol

Author's Response: Thank you. Everyone needs a good distraction. I sometimes wish I had something to take my mind off this story once in a while! LOL!

Thanks for the review!

lovely chapter
more more *chants* lol
thanks for writing
xxx abi

Author's Response: Ahh. Thank you. Lot\'s of fun in the next few chapters. I\'m not sure where exactly I\'m going to end this book. I don\'t know how to handle the scouring of the Shire since Elaura won\'t be there. Book 4 will be entirely new material using Tolkien\'s appendices as a guide. Wish me luck!

Thanks for the feedback.
