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!

This is simply beautiful! The last chapter is entancing, although I would have loved to read about Frodo's first word being spoken. What do you think it would be? It is enchanting to read Frodo's mother's diary; enchanting and lovely. I love this! Well done!

meerkatalex

Author's Response: You mean, Frodo's first word apart from "no"? :) That's a good question, actually and I don't think I can answer it just yet. Maybe Primula will tell me one day so I can write it down?

Summary: Frodo discovers the first signs of age.





Story inspired by this shirebunny: At Cormallen, or in Minas Tirith, Frodo discovers one effect of the Ring's destruction - a grey hair (or hairs) sprouting on his head. After so many years of Frodo being "well-preserved" by the Ring, compounded by what he went through to destroy it, it seems likely that the aging process would at last show up in him at least a bit.

Date: 06/02/09 Title: Chapter 1: Changes and Constancy

This story is so... Natural. It seems to be exactly the sorts of things Pip would say, and how Frodo would retaliate. I'm glad that everyone thinks that Frodo eventually ages... In the moves he still looked like a tween, and no older throughout any of it. However, back to the point... I love this story! It's as good as your others, and the second-last paragraph about Pippin being cheeky puts them both into character. Well written! :-)

meerkatalex

Author's Response: Aging is not a bad thing, especially not at Frodo's age. He can be proud of those silver strands and Pippin, well, Pippin will tease him about them, but only because he loves Frodo so much. Thanks a lot!

Love the title of this story! It is quite emotional and I do blame Legolas's father, and I should love to see a sequel on how Aragorn and Gimli cope with his death. However this story is very well written, as the plot flows and there is enough speech to keep one interested. It's a very good story; you should definately continue with your writing of Elves and their friends.

Summary: Legolas grows more attached to Estel as they spend time together in Rivendell. For the lotrallslash Daily Drabble Challenge: ‘Follow’—occurs sometime after ‘At Last’ and ‘The Prince & The Heir.’

Oh, thank you for the translations at the end; I was going to ask about that! It's good to see someone else's POV about Legolas' and Estel's relationship, and I'm glad he doesn't have anything against it. Very well and delicately wrote, and I hope to read more of your stories soon!

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind & lovely feedback--It is truly appreciated. I hope to start writing again; I have been on a hiatus of sorts due to RL. I have read many wonderful A/L stories, but the majority of them seemed to be along the theme of a doomed relationship where Aragorn leaves Legolas for duty, marries Arwen and neither gets to follow their hearts. This is unacceptable to me. Why write fanfiction if you can't change things around? *g* Patty.

Very emotional - I loved reading this as it is rather calming but makes you think about certain things - Frodo's parents, and him having to cope with the pain. It also shows that Pippin is a Took through and through, and the brotherly bond between them. Well done!

Summary: This shall be the place for stories focusing on Merimac Brandybuck who will appear in many minor and major roles along with familiar and unfamaliar faces from LotR. Each chapter will stand on it's own.

UPDATE: The Fright: Merimac acts the overprotective father.
