Child of Storms by Anwyn Rated: NC-17 [Reviews - 25]
Summary: Twenty and five years have passed since the Great Battle on which the fate of Middle Earth teetered in delicate balance. Much of the darkness has now been purged from the lands which grow green and fertile once more.

Far into the rolling lands of the North a child was born into this time of blossoming peace, to grow as homes are once again rebuilt.

This is the first story of my original character, Anwyn which I am putting together piece by piece, Its already finished but now I am bringing it together.

Please note that this story was written cooperatively with xFanarix whose fanfic is also posted on this site.

This was a wonderful story. You have created such a complete original character that the reader falls in love with despite or maybe because of her flaws. She is defintely not a mary-sue.

I really enjoyed this story, it was such an incredibly original idea and well planned out and executed.

I really hope that when you have the time you will go back and edit the story to correct the spelling mistakes and grammar, because it truly is an amazing story.

Author's Response: Hello there Mis! Thank you for your very kind comments, they truly do mean a great deal! I am so glad that you like Anwyn's character, and that even more so that she is not a Mary Sue! Writing an OFC that is definately something I go to great lengths to avoid of falling into the trap of making a character *too* perfect but after writing for some years now I have come to apprechiate that 'Perfect' is also quite boring. The idea for this story is one that I have been playing around for a couple of years before I actually sat down and began to put it into words as I was nearvous about sharing it fearing that people would jump on me from the canon purist angle that there could be NO WAY that Aragorn would lay with another woman, no matter how briefly, as he was so wholly in love with Arwen and so this story is really AU but not a great deal as I am also quite mindful of canon but work my story around it. I like to think of this story being writting in the creases of the written page of the books. Aragorn was said to have 'Daughters' though it was never specified that they were all with Arwen! ;) This story took me some years to get up the nerve to write it the way I wanted it to be and then longer to actually write it and I did have to go back and change some details due to a disagreement with another author who I have since lost contanct with who had some small parts in this story and I did not want to use her ideas so I had to go back and tweak a couple things but I am quite happy with the finished product. Ah, yes, Spelling and Grammar are two things that always trip up my stories unfortunately, I do my best but I get so deeply involved in the telling of the story itself that those two things fall by the wayside, It does not excuse it of course. I use a word processor when writing chapters and it is a handy tool for catching the majority of my mistakes and I do re-read and then read again what I have just written to make sure it makes sense and edit when nessacary (Which in my case is quite often!) though I have developed some bad grammar habits through the years I really need to work on shaking. In my career I do not write, well, I do but I do not get to flex my grammar muscle so to speak. I will definately work on going back and editing a little bit at a time as I always also have several projects on th go at once but I do apprechiate you bringing that to my attention. Thank you kindly again for your wonderful review, It means a great deal to me that you enjoyed this story as I worked very hard on it and it makes it well worth it :)
