Bio:
I've always had a love of writing and fantasy books but most importantly LOTR and all it's loveable characters! My best friend and I started writing fanfiction in Year 8 to amuse each other. Nine years later I finally got the courage to post something up!!

Additionally I love ice skating, Labradors, art, music and hanging out with my friends.

I have to add a big shout out to a lovely author by the name of L8Bleumr. Any and all works by this amazingly talented author are awe-inspiring and such a pleasure to read. Seriously. If you haven't read her works, please make haste to her penname and embark on journeys rich with life, love and laughter.

What a beautiful end to an extraordinary tale L8Bleumr. Can't wait to read your next epic adventure!!! Inspiring penmanship and portrayls. xx - Iri

Author's Response: Thank you Iri. I'm glad you enjoyed it and yes, another epic is on its way soon. Of course, Rhav is always speaking to me in the back of my mind, so Untamed Tales was born to continue with some of her adventures. Thanks for following along with me and I hope to keep you entertained.

Summary: This was a response to a challenge in a yahoo group I belong to titled 'What's your lover's favorite things.' The idea was to interview your favorite LotR character and then yourself. This was my silly version of an interview gone wrong. Thanks Brandy! Rated for suggestive material

Bahahaha what clever innuendos (did I spell that right?)
Hello again my friend. My laptop is still down so I grab snippets of stories whenever I can borrow a computer. It's been a while but although my story has staggered to a very unwelcome halt (in my opinion) I'd just like to let you know I'm still enjoying your works and love visiting this site just to read the gloriously entertaining writings of one such as you! ~ Iri

Author's Response: Oh my, Irial, thank you so much. Gosh, I wrote this so long ago it seems. Sorry to hear that your computer is still down. That really sucks, I know. Hope it gets fixed soon.

And wow Haldir! Now might be the time to introduce him to the phrase 'Jealousy makes you nasty'! I love this much like I love all your work. I wish I had your brain and skill. And imagination!! ~ Iri

Author's Response: This was the first time someone challenged me to write something and it was so much fun. I had just gotten back from the Florida Keys at the time and used a lot of my experience in this short piece.

Pulchiritudinous? Awesome word!! Ten points at the spelling be for you!! This is a funny little item to sidetrack us. And I freely admit, my character at present has golden blonde locks. And astonishing green eyes : ) Guilty as charged!

Author's Response: I can spell pulchiritudinous, but don't ask me to pronounce it! Haha. As for your character, elements of a Mary Sue aren't bad. Thw hole package put together is quite awful! :)

Bahahahahahahahahaha I love your Nine Commandments!!! Oh I think I just gave myself a migraine from laughing so much! Whilst my character doesnt seem to be this far fetched I almost want to write a mock one just for fun and see how crazy I can get with her!! Thanks for the inspiration and I'll be sure to follow your rules and guidelines to perfection!!!

Author's Response: Crap. I guess I should've known this day would come. I should've realized this guide could be used for evil. Alas, I'm repsonsible for whatever beastly Sue you create. Let me know how bad she turns out....*shudder*. ;) Kidding. Glad you like the guide and have fun!!!

Summary: When a young woman is thrown into Middle Earth after a terrible accident, wounded by life and its evil, she must learn to face the nightmares that stalk Middle Earth, as well as the nightmares within herself... Join Freya as she journeys throughout Middle Earth with the Fellowship, and captures the heart of the Mirkwood Prince along the way. But the question still remains, why is she here?

Nice touch! Really really cool. I love wolves and the idea of a telepathic wolf in Middle earth - priceless. Really keen to see how you involve him in the rest of the story!!

Author's Response: Thanks! Same, as you can probably guess I LOVE wolves but then again who doesn't? LOL! Yeah, Chaos will continue to be a main character in the story, and will develop more - but you'll just have to wait and see! LOL ^_^

I'm sooooo excited that I finally get to read the story between Antien and Glandur!! Awesome stuff!

Author's Response: Nice to see you here once again, Irial. I hope to add more short stories from time to time. Antien and Glandur are wonderful to write for. And for more stories, check out Lisse. She has written a couple stories for A/G and she makes them just as adorable. Thanks for reading.

Ooh, this chapter sent little shivers up my spine! I love their love, if you get me. It's so beautiful and deep and true. *sigh* You portray the two of them marvelously! Love these two to pieces! - Iri

Author's Response: They have become very close to my heart. When others started commenting on them from my other story, I knew I just had to give them their own story.

Date: 28/04/11 Title: Chapter 4: Lovers

What a beautiful love story. These two are so inspiritational and you write them so well. Their distinctive personalities shine very well in your writing. I hope there's more to hear about Antien and Glandur in the future! - Iri

Author's Response: I'm so glad you like these characters. I am by no means a slash writer, but I can see these two no other way than together. They just mesh so well. I enjoy writing little clips of their life together and I'm sure this won't be the last of their tales. If you would like to read more about these two, check out Lisse. She has done a wonderful job portraying them exactly how I see them, and really brings them to life (just had to give my friend a plug here, lol).

Well then. Hello Thranduil!
Amazingly talented once more my friend. My poor heart was racing with Alya's when Thranduil had her backed against the pillar! And good on her for being so strong with him!! Loved it ~ Iri

Author's Response: There's something about Thranduil that just gets me going. All that power and handsome good looks. He could shove me against a pillar any time.

I almost feel guilty reading this chapter! I've committed the 'Sue' crime lol. This idea makes me laugh I love it! - Iri

Author's Response: You are not alone. I, too once struggled to make my characters believable and non-Sueish. I admit it was because I was a puny freshman who wanted to be noticed by everyone. So I wrote a fic in which everyone loved me. However, I realized very soon afterwards how silly the story sounded. I didn't delete it though. I keep it in my computer's files to let me know how much I've improved.

Author's Response: Well, Willy Wonka and the Fellowship are two good things that I just had to put together. Just like Peanutbutter and jelly. They just flow very nice between two slices of plot-bread.
