Bio:
Hey guys! Well where to start? As it says, my real name is Rachel and I'm from the island of Ireland or as I like to call it as do others, the Emerald Isle :) Now, I'm not sure whether or not I should put my age up here but I will say that I am over the age of fourteen but under the age of eighteen so I'm sorry if my stories seem a bit... juvenile. hahaha I hope to really develop more as a writer with the help from this site as well as the reviews and comments I get on said stories that I hope to write ^_^

I'm just a tad insane with a hint of madness thrown in there so beware! My stories could be strange as well! I really want to be an author when I leave school so for that I hope to get enough points to study English and Classics in Trinity College.
I have been reading and writing since I was very young, I finished the entire Mr. Men and Little Mrs. books when I was four. I was quite proud of myself but c'mon! I was four! Ha-Ha! The first story I ever wrote was called "A Cat Called Cat" it was quite a strange story now that I look back on it - it was about a cat (obviously) called Cat who comes to live at a farm. The story is about how frustrating it is that no one can grasp the fact that her name is Cat, e.g. "I know you are a cat. What is your name?" etc. I wrote that story when I was seven and treasure it still! From there I turned to fantasy and adventure and when I read the Lord of the Rings trilogy when I was eleven I was addicted to elves, magic, dragons and the works! I love writing about dragons, strange as it may seem, but ah well, I love them so... :D

I am obsessed with wolves and have always wanted to go to areas in America etc. to see them run free, not locked up in cages. So you can guess - I love animals with a passion and if I could have any power at all besides immortality it would be the ability to speak to animals! Ha-Ha weird I know but its the truth - not going to lie!

Anyway, sorry for babbling on about myself! I really hope you enjoy my fanfiction! I'm really excited to finally being able to write them and I hope they can rise to the outstanding standard here!

Best Wishes,

Rachel, AKA DragonSpirit ^_^

Spreading My Wings by iggybaby Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 7]
Summary: My name is Haefwered and I am the daughter of a simple Rohan farmer. I was always a free spirit, always yearning to fly free of this world. Suddenly my whole world was torn down before my eyes when I was told I had to marry a man I didn't know. I knew I had to do something; I would not let my life be ruled by the duties that the patriarchal society deemed proper. So I ran away. I wasn't expecting to find any adventure and I certainly was not expecting to fall in love.

This is the story of a young feminist in middle earth seeking to break the ties that ground her.

OH HELL NO! He did not just say what I think he did! Considered property in this society??? Oh my god I would have killed him there and there! But well done to Haefwered for telling him how it is! Honestly I'm surprised she didn't kick him where it hurts after what he did :P Great chapter! Thanks for updating so fast ^.^ Always eager for more!!! x Dragon

Author's Response: I'm glad that you're enjoying this! It makes the story though, it provides conflict between the traditionalist and the feminist :D You're welcome currently working on the next chappie ~iggybaby

Wow, this is a fantastic story so far! Really amazing and interesting beginning. I love the fact that she's a feminist (being one myself :P) and I can't wait to see how that goes down in a time when women were classed as second-class citizens. (grrr.. stupid men)
I'm also really curious as to who she'll fall in love with, I'm kind of on the wall between Aric and Eomer? Maybe? Ha-Ha, anyway, great story - please continue writing it! :D x

Author's Response: I agree, stupid men! You will have to read on to find out! I will try and update it as often as possible! Thanks for the review! ~iggybaby

Hmmm curiouser and curiouser lol! This is really picking up! Call me paranoid but I think there's something not quite right with how her brother died and then the ending with Aric! If I were there I'd either A)Run for my life B)give him one hell of a punch! lol. Nice to see that shes still strong and feminist - but when she was thinking about her brother - brought a tear to my eye! Beautifully written and put in really well with the scene! Please please please update soon! Dying over here! LOL ^.^

Author's Response: I am trying to make her a strong character but also keep her human. I try to show both sides of her to develop her character. The next chapter shows this also. Glad you are enjoying this! ~iggybaby

Ohhhhh creepy, if I thought that was happening to me I would have gone crazy or just sat on the floor and cried with the little girl. Really great chapter, was worth the wait. You're really getting the picture of what Aric is like and in trn what Haefwered is like and what she fears. The plot thickens with every installment - I love it! But who WHO will she fall for??? Ahhh update as soon as you can!
Brilliant chapter! ^_^
Can't wait for more!

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it! I was really stuck with this chapter because I wanted something to happen that would totally freak her out enough so that I could continue on with the plot. I will try and update as soon as possible! Thanks for the review! ~iggybaby

Wow. I'm speechless, this was... amazing, truly. For such a short story it was so powerful and made me cry! I never cry! But I did because of this story. It was just beautiful, the raw emotion, hope and love in this story was one of the loveliest pieces I have ever read. Thank you for a great story :)

Author's Response: wow. that really means a lot to me. I actually have been told i have two sides to my personality: one is a happy, bubbly me, and the other is a dark and serious side. this story reflects the serious side. my other story, "one" is the bubbly one. weird, right?

hey! welcome to LotR Fanfiction. I'm new too :D this story is really touching, I had always wondered about what happened after the boat set sail and you put a great thought on paper, the simplicity of it is beautiful and the emotions that seem to course through it are very well written. I really hope to read more from you, you really have a talent for expressing emotions in the simplest things. Excellent story :D

Author's Response: thanks

Hahaha I reviewed this story on Fanfiction but let me tell you, it is just as beautiful as the times I read it then. I love how you write and your portrayal of Legolas and Eowyn - it's just perfect! Anyone with any bit of sense could see that. Like I said before, one if not my absolute favourite Legolas and Eowyn story ever! Love it to bits - you're a brilliant writer and it shows in everything you write ^_^

Author's Response: Ah, lovely! Then you must be Spirit of the Dragon from ffnet - brilliant. It's funy- I re-read this story recently and liked it myslef (that sounds arrogant , but it's not supposed ot be) and actually feel I should add another chapter. When I was writing Deeper, I got to a point where I wanted to write it with Eowny but got so many people clamouring for the m/m pairing - still feel I want to write Eowyn though. And it needsanotehr chapter whe I have finished Sons of Thunder.You are lovely for saying such nice things! Thank you!!

Hmmm interesting beginning I must say. Very different to what I've read before so well done on that ^_^ Yeah I think you should continue to write this, it's really interesting especially with a girl and a guy both going to ME, and with a really nasty cliff-hanger at the end XD
I think that it really has potential so definitely continue! I'll be keeping a look out for it!
Best of luck

Oh. My. God... that was truly beautiful... I seriously don't know what to say. The simplicity of the words that so many of us want to say to Frodo is tear-jerking in its timeless feel. There is something about this piece that is just so touching. I speak for myself and others I'm sure when I say that all the time I read the books and watched the movies, all I wanted to do was sit with Frodo, comfort him, be there for him and to see this written down is like the perfect, peaceful closure I was looking for.
This piece is just so moving and beautiful that you should be very proud of it and yourself :)

Yay! First review, first read haha - the things that make me happy ^_^
Anyway (sorry had to get that out) the beginning of this story was just wow. When I read it I was like, hold on what's happening - but in a good way (hehe), I have to say, the way you describe the elf really makes an impact on the reader, he's just something else! *fans self*
When you wrote about how she would never see him again really spiked my interest and now I can't wait to see what happens!

As well as that I love the way she was a child during Helms Deep, not once have I read anything like it before and it's just so refreshing to see it from someone else's point of view.

I love the 'Master Elf' fellow (could it be Feredir??) he was so tentative and kind but as an Elf would be? If that makes any sense! You captured how an Elf would act beautifully and when I saw you had a new story I just had to be the first to read!!! It's an absolute amazing beginning and I can't wait for more - such an impression for one chapter!!!

Brilliant! ^_^

Dragon x

Author's Response: Wow! Thanks for such a positive review, Dragon. I'm very happy Feredir made such an impression on you. Actually, the 'Master Elf' you mention is not Feredir (who will come along later in the story), but he is a character from my other story, Taming the Wild. This scene coincides with a chapter from that story in which he is entertaining some children at the Deep. I just have to say, I don't think I've ever received a review on a new story so quickly and wanted to say congrats on being the first, lol. And thanks again for reading. I hope to keep you entertained.
