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.

Your sanctuary is the same as mine. Legolas, Aragorn, Elladan, Elrohir, any of them seem to look right off the page or out of the film and seem to say, "I'm here, there is no reason to fret, I'll protect you.

Author's Response: Hmm, I should add The Cullens from Twilight to that list . . . especially Jasper, Jasper rox and that isn't even the best way to describe him, he's awesome. Thanks for the review - Li

I agree. And one thing you could add is, if women are the items of deception, how come the men follow us? I mean really, they have minds of their own, or do they . . .

I hope Elrohir listened, because I would if Elladan wrote me that.

Okay, this was something made me laugh and laugh. I really just wanted to say that I love your bio. It had me in tears, I was laughing so hard. And what you said about writer's block, I agree now that I've thought about it. Writing is SO hard, it's a wonder I ever thought to be one. But, I've always loved a challenge and that is what I got.

Author's Response: Really? Cool! Yeah, writing can be pretty hard. Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: Shadow Maiden Signed

It's a little confusing and I think you should write more so that we will be able to understand better what is going on.
The writing is well done.

Oh, and great story! That is after all what a review is for. For the story. Seriously, Kitt, smack me. Right here *points to back of head* Hard.



Author's Response: *running around in circles, pauses to smack Dae on the head* I knooooow! It's insane! I almost choked on my breakfast when I saw it! It is kinda nice; I like the neatness of the reviews now. Huh, I didn't notice the story of the moment was missing. I did like that. Perhaps we should suggest they put back? But yeah, thanks for reading this thing! *anxiously* I hope I didn’t hit you too hard… -Kitt :D

You should continue. Going through processes and things that begin to happen because of the addiction. Have someone try to help him, etc. This would be a greater story if you did so.

Author's Response: Really? Hmm...I may very well return to this fic then...However, it was an "impulse-write" that I do when I'm feeling such a strong emotion I have to channel it somewhere...But I'll see :D
