Bio:
First - the stories I like: I'll read anything about the Hobbits, or Elves, or Men, or Dwarves, or fluff... Basically anything without graphic sex or torture. My favourite authors that I would definately recommend to other readers and/or authors are:

Ar-feiniel
Anaphase
Kitt Otter
Shadow Maiden
Karlmir Stonewain
Dunedain ranger of the North
xFanarix
Owlett
Traveller
Origo

These should receive certificates and I admire them beyond anything. Also the favourite authors button does not work on my account *grrr* so they're my favourites!

My likes outside of fanfiction and writing: I like trampolining, singing, (I don't think I'm very good though, lol,) chatting to my friends and watching new movies that come out.

Things I don't like: People who lie, cheat or spread slander and gossip. People who are racist and/or homophobic or sexist. Gossip itself angers me, and science is one of my worst subjects at school, so I guess I hate that too. I just don't understand it...

I am not a beta reader but review a lot in my POV, as I don't really have a lot of time in my hands when it's term-time at school.

Overall, I love this site and hope that people review my stories!

Say wha? I'll still read but I need to know mooooooore! It's so grievious! Off note: How old are Estel and Legolas?

Author's Response: More will be revealed as the story goes on. I agree. It is grievous indeed. No one knows how old Legolas is, but I think he was between 500 and 1000 years old at the time of the Quest. Estel is somewhere in his late thirties, early forties. I didn't really pin it down.

Wait for what? Well, I've got to go know, but I will continue to read your stories as long as I've still got the Internet.

Author's Response: I hope you do get to continue reading, because as I said before, there will be revelations as the story progresses.

This is a very good story which revolves around a topic I have not read about before. It is not too graphic and quite emotional, which makes it good. I felt myself wanting the poor twin to survive. I'm glad he did and you have written this brilliantly! Well done!

Urgh... This gave me the creeps! It was good, though, quite descriptive. I'm almost crying. Damn the stupid Ring! I cannot believe... Wait, yes, I can believe that Frodo would kill Sam to keep the Ring, but the thought of it makes me want to weep. Very well written, and a very good emotional journey.

Cancer is terrible. I've heard about it, and grieved about it, but have always been too young to understand the diagnosis and hardship of cancer victims. I love this and hope you continue writing, as it is something you have a gift for.
