Bio:
This is Shadow Maiden. I wanted to make another account for one reason: To be myself, now, I can completely express my thoughts, ideas, and all of me. I will not be reposting my stories here but I would enjoy it if you would read them.
I am also Daewen on TMoA Fiction. (hi, Kitt:)

And I have an account on Youtube. It's DaewenEledhiel.

Here are some other fanfiction sites I've found:

storiesofarda.com

www.naiceanilme.com

thelastship.org

www.councilofelrond.com

For anyone who hasn't already, Read "Sigurd and Gudrun" and "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, and Sir Orfeo." Tolkien's translation, preferably:) Very nice indeed.

Wow! Thanks so much for everyone reading my poetry! I'm always so amazed that people read these, my life's blood, and actually like them! You can't do better at boosting my confidence than that. Thanks again!

September 5, 2009

For those of you who are wondering, my two stories, "Silence" and "In the Silence" are posted over in TMoA. They're not specifically The Lord of the Rings material and Adora and I agreed they'd be better over there. So, you can still read them!

Something else about me: I dabble in lucid dreaming. If you don't understand what that is and would like to or you want to talk about it (I could use some help) feel free to contact me.

I will soon be able to post The Daewen Chronicles!

October 19, 2010

Okay, well, real life has really kept me busy but I will have the Daewen Chronicles up. I am also writing some Christmas fics and would like to have a Halloween one up too, though I'm not sure if it will be written soon enough.

August 13, 2013 - When living life, unexpected adventures have a way of popping up. So, that is why I find myself having lived 5 years and not written another fanfiction. I would like to let people know that I will be continuing!

I finding more and more that drabbles have, although short, the effect to hit the heart more than any other story. This was amazing!

Author's Response: Thank you for your kind words! In my case I drabble because it is near impossible for me to come up with greater than 100 words of any sort of quality. But I have hope of improvement as I continue to write with the encouragement of kind readers.

Well, not only is it hard to continue a story longer than 100 words, drabbles become poignant - it enables one to use large descriptions without seeming dull:)

Author's Response: One of my biggest problems is I tend to be too descriptive and wordy.

Reviewer: Daewen Signed
Date: 13/07/10 Title: Chapter 1: Chapter 1

I tend to be repetitive. Hey, did you know I have another account here? It's Shadow Maiden. Those are some of my earlier things, but The Snowball Fight to Remember is my favorite.

Author's Response: It will be a pleasure to take a look at your stories on that account.

Thank you so much for responding to my challenge. I posted it a year ago and you are the first! It really made my day. Great detail - love it!

Author's Response: What I’ve read of your entries are short, not as short as mine. I love your writing, your honesty, the anguish you so courageously place on the table and deal with. It was a pleasure to answer your challenge, if I did. I hate to endorse myself, but I’ve put up a challenge that I hope you and my other favorites will take a look at. I believe I titled it “an honest moment” or something like that. I’d like to know about every one’s favorite character, there greatest fear, secrete, joy…something they hide from the world but that the author knows about them. It could be any character OC or cannon. Answer all or one. I’m so glad you are here.

I will definitely check it out. I'm so glad you like my works. I really needed your kind words: right now is a little rough for me. Thanks!

Author's Response: I do love your works. We need you here. You are valued. So what ever is going on, hang in there and know that you have friends who care here. Feel free to contact me just to chat if you would ever like to.

Wow. I love this! My favorite part is "In her hast to find love, let her not forget me." Very powerful and . . . sad.

Author's Response: Thank you so much! That was the line that was the hardest to think of for me, glad you liked it! =)

Interesting good. I can't wait to read more!

Author's Response: That's relief :) I'll try to update as soon as I can

Summary: The darkness of Sauron spread not only across the whole of Middle Earth but also into the mind of someone least expected, Legolas Greenleaf. When Aragorn finally has the courage to ask his friend why the elf seems so unwell and tired the answer he receives isn't the answer he was expecting...or something he wanted to hear either.

Sorry, Legolas, I didn't want to kill you . . . but it made a good story :) I know exactly how that feels.

Summary: A dying elf gives birth to a baby daughter, who is then brought up by her father in secret. No one know he even has a child. Together they have a lot of adventures, but can he ever get her accepted as his rightful air? And what will happen when she meets her true love, a mortal man?

Drama about Legolas and his daughter. Rated for later chapters!

This has the good beginnings of a story. Focus on the feelings Legolas is having and then focus on how a father would take care of his daughter - alone. You've started doing that, just focus on those two things for right now and you'll be fine :)
