Hi! I just turned 25. I'm from Malaysia and i live on a tiny island called Penang. I am a final year med student and a full time daughter to my father and mother.

I started reading the Lord of the Rings when i was 14, never quite finished it. I reread the books again when the movies came out. By far, the LOTR trilogy is my favourite movie trilogy of all time.

My passion for writing started when i was 13 when i first entered a public speaking contest where i had to write my own piece. Ever since then, i have written poetries and short stories. I really dabbled in 'serious' writing about a year back when i was dared by a friend to write something about Harry Potter.

My favourite line from the movie is, "Don't leave me Mr. Frodo. Don't go where i can't follow..."

Me on LOTR Fan

I joined not too long ago. I stumbled upon this site when i was searching for graphics on LOTR since i myself make graphics on If you are curious, here is my account : My Deviantart Page

The first story i stumbled on to was West Wind Over Edoras and i fell in love with it! I love the tenderness between Legolas and Rowannen and the romance, OMG!

The second story i followed was by my review buddy, L8Bleumr, What Path We Take. It was beautifully written and it gave me a new found love for Faramir. I am also very grateful to have met Moe, since we encourage each other's writing by reviewing each chapter. I think she is a far better writer than i am and i have been privileged to learn from her. Her second story is Guardian of the Light and coincidentally we are writing about the same elf, Haldir. But i am happy to report, although our taste in elves are the same, our stories are so far apart it even allowed us to enjoy each other's stories.

I have read other stories and i do try to leave a review when i can. I am a bit... scared of slash. i don't write them but i do read them. I love the story by Melusine, If It Takes Forever. I am also enjoying Cuil Eden. Some stuff, i still need getting use to but some slash are beautifully written.

There are a few others but i can't remember them. I don't usually favourite stories but i do review when i read them.

Some of the people i will mention here :

Regalaria : thank you for being my first reviewer and following my stories. I really appreciate it!

L8Bleumr : thank you for being my review buddy and saying all the kind words to me. you have taught me a lot just by reading your stories and i look forward to more of your work.

Haldirsbaby : brandy is a fellow haldir lover and craiger! She writes really cute and romantic stories about Haldir and Craig Parker. Keep up the good work!

Me and writing on LOTR Fan

I have completed my first long story, His Eyes. A real person fic about Orlando Bloom. Although the story is still raw and rough around the edges, i enjoyed writing it and i am very proud of it. I have a few other one shot fics, that have been revised to correct errors and such.

I like to think, i can come up with reasonable and agreeable plots. I like details, because as reader, i love it when writers give me something to imagine, to see with my own eyes. I try to use a lot of different words, trying..note...trying to come at least close to Tolkien era... not Tolkien himself, but around his time... I am not worthy lol. I have a problem with tenses... and my writing in the middle of the night doesn't help. I don't have a beta since i write fast and i don't want to dump a lot of work to him/her.

So, if you have an open mind, don't mind a bit of mistakes here and there and can understand between typos, then i welcome you to sample some of my stories here. I appreciate reviews. It helps me write and at least i know who is it reading my story.

I look forward to hearing from you guys, be it from old and faithful readers or new and eager readers.

Summary: Haldir has spent a lifetime protecting his home and his heart. With the birth of one of the last Peredhil also came his oath to watch over and protect her. The wall he has built to protect his soul is being threatened. Change does not come so easily to the Lorien Elf as he tries to deny the fact that love is stronger than arrogance.

Oh, get a room caladwen! you made haldir all jealous and worked up now lol! Wonderful and tender chapter. I cannot wait to see how things progress with caladwen and leodred. Can't wait also for when haldir accepts what he feels!

Author's Response: I'm laughing out loud. You are too funny. Thanks.

Wow, nieriel... captain, lover, head mistress and now teacher..a yoda of sorts for Haldir, teach him the ways of love i must! hehe..great chapter. i cannot wait to see what happens in lorien!

Author's Response: Once again you've got me in stitches. I never looked at it that way. I guess she is a jack of all trades isn't she. Maybe I'll have her do the old jedi mind trick on Haldir. Crossover anyone?

Wow..that was a bomb! A great history to add to add to the marchwarden persona. to be scarred from he was an elfling. wonderful chapter. can't wait for caladwen to meet him in rohan!

Author's Response: I had to go back and read my own chapter. It's been a while but I'm back. Haldir has issues, that's for sure. Much more to come soon.

I am glad you are back! Wonderful chapter. so tender and sweet. It is good to see Haldir in his element. Caladwen will need time and it is fortunate haldir has it. Waiting eagerly for the next chapter

Author's Response: Thanks, it's good to be back. Haldir has always felt the guilt of not following through with his oath to be her guardian. But when she needs him most, he is there for her. Next chpt will be up soon.

Things are picking up. I wonder what will happen in Lorien. Haldir will be back in his element. It is also nice to see Caladwen bounce back. There's nothing like a new beginning!

Author's Response: She has grieved and is now ready to move on. Haldir on the other hand is still... well, Haldir.

That was wonderful! Unwed females arent allowed in the border's talan? i'm glad that we write about Haldir at the same time but i am beside myself that even though we write the same story, there are so many differences in it which makes reading yours something refreshing for me and it becomes a learning experience :)

Author's Response: I'm glad you think that. I thought it might be awkward at first when we were both writing Haldir stories. But they are definitely different. I can follow along with yours and not feel like I'm stepping on anyone's toes. They are two very different characters even though they are the same person. You have to love fanfiction. No two are alike, that's for sure.

Ooo...the classic archery scene..very sensual!! i loved it and i can't wait to see how things unfold :) the tension between them is overwhelming! great chapter

Author's Response: Thanks kay. I'm glad the archery scene came across well. I've only fired a bow a handful of times and I definitely did not have a handsome elf instructor breathing on my neck. Maybe I would have been better at it if I did.

Date: 02/08/10 Title: Chapter 17: 17 Look Into The Future

Why is sit always hard for people to admit their love for each other? It would save them a lot of hurt. Haldir should learn to loosen up and accept love easily. Wonderful chapter. I cannot wait for the chapter where Haldir finally gives in :)

Author's Response: Because if they came out and said 'I love you' there would be no story. And then we'd never have become review buddies lol ;-)

Oh no!! A stray arrow...Oh Haldir, if you would have just met her this wouldn't have happened. I blame you arrogant, self-centred, handsome,sexy, yummy Haldir...*drools

I hope Cal make it and i hope haldir sees the error of his ways. Great chapter and a great cliffhanger!!

Author's Response: Breathe... breathe. Do you need some oxygen? Do you need a moment? You crack me up. Hang in there and wipe your chin. Next chapter is on its way soon.

Oh dear... a life force sucking elleth! Haldir better watch out. I hope caladwen wont suck his energy too much or haldir wont have any left for me! great chapter. I like the energy plot line :)

Author's Response: All this talk of Haldir and sucking is... well never mind. Glad you liked it but it's time to turn up the heat. The 'Marchwarden' is about to make an appearance soon. Everything can't be all bunnies and rainbows now can it. BTW it cracks me up how our stories criss cross sometimes, especially since we seem to post at the same time.

Ahhh!! Eowyn!! Why oh why!! I was enjoying the heated embrace and the kisses. and then there was a promise of love making and the poof! shattered... u have left me wanting and i do not appreciate that... update soon or else...

Author's Response: Your idle threats do not frighten me my young friend. Leave it to family to interfere in your love life. Eowyn kind-of jumps the gun by calling on Caladwen. Faramir is not that bad off yet.

Legolas...*sigh...gotta love a dad like him. handsome and caring. i hope haldir survives the interrogation soon. Just promise me Haldir will return safe and sound *crosses fingers

Author's Response: I have always pictured (in my mind anyways) Thranduil as being very overprotective of Legolas. Although we don't know much about Leg, I think of him as an only child. I am an only child and my mom was an overprotective parent. Now I find myself doing the same thing. So, to me Legolas would naturally respond in the same way as he was raised. As far as Haldir returning unharmed, don't worry. Legolas may be very watchful but he's not crazy. He uses words not weapons. Besides, something tells me that Haldir could totally kick his butt if need be.

I have been sexually frustrated these few days. I am cranky and miserable...when oh when will they consummate their love? You are such a tease...wonderful chapter! can't wait for more!

Author's Response: OK Tell you what I'm gonna do for you. I'm gonna give you a little something that will hopefully give you some relief until Hal and Cal get on the same page with their feelings. Jeez, can't an Elf get to first base and not have to make a home run every time? Keep an eye out for a new post from me.

To quote Gimli, if anyone's asking my opinion which they're not, i think we're taking the long way round! Hehehe...i agree..true love cannot be rushed. Or your Cal will suffer the same fate my Cal went through :) great chapter very tender as usual

Author's Response: I see you picked up on that. Nothing gets past you does it? And by the way, you spoil me too but I think we are both worth it.

Date: 12/08/10 Title: Chapter 25: 25 Mixed Signals

Talk about misunderstandings... It could ruin our lives... i hope haldir won't be too hurt. Great chapter!

Author's Response: This might just be where things go from bad to worse. It's time to take an extreme 'left turn' in the story.

Great great chapter! nice touch with having rumil having a crush on caladwen. I await ur next chapter eagerly

Date: 17/08/10 Title: Chapter 30: 30 More Wine Please

oh have introduced a new person! ahhh...why do i feel that she would come in between them? Forgive me for not reviewing earlier but was busy starting a new fic :)

Author's Response: No worries. I'm starting one too but I won't begin posting it until I'm finished with this one. Yes, Haldir is falling back into his former playboy-self (not that there's anything wrong with that).

Date: 18/08/10 Title: Chapter 31: 31 Abandoning Reality

ahh...i dont know whether to hate him or love him...ok i'll admit it, haldir can make me scream his name over and over again but poor caladwen...and there she was alone thinking about him... I feel the urge to slap someone! *slaps haldir

Author's Response: He can run but he can't hide. Hal and Cal's connection is strong, though they don't realize it. When he let's go and conjures her up in his mind, she senses him and they feel one another. He's a bad, bad Elf. Since it's your birthday, I'll let you be the one to punish him as you see fit. *slaps Hal and hands him over to you*
