Bio:
Hello! My name's Esme and I live in the wonderful UK. I've been writing fanfictions for about a year and a half now- having discovered Lord of the Rings just under a year ago- starting off with Harry Potter, (which was a minor fail.) I just couldn't get into it, or my stories, as I wasn't as passionate about Harry Potter as I am about Tolkien.

So, I began an epic search for Tolkien fanfiction sites. First I found Stories of Arda, and then Lord of the Rings Fanfiction. Then I begun writing LotR fanfictions. It quickly became a hobby of mine, and I gradually became addicted.

After some awkward discussions with my Mother, who was concerned about my computer-usage, I managed to explain the term "fanfiction" to her. (She still doesn't understand, but doesn't pester me as much.)And so here I am. :)

I read my first Tolkien book at age six, The Hobbit, and loved it. I started reading The Fellowship of the Ring at age seven, but quickly abandoned it. (What an idiot I was.) I tried again last April, and loved it. I quickly finished the trilogy, and moved onto Unfinished Tales and The Silmarillion- which I poured over. Thus, Tolkien became my idol, and I became an adoring fan.

As well as a writer of fanfictions, I am also-
- A published poet
- A keen RP'er
- An amateur astronomer
- A work obsessive...
- And an Enting! (a Junior member of the Tolkien Society- thanks to my amazing friend.)

I'm also the awesome person who's literally ALWAYS on, though this is only because I often forget where the "Sign Out" button is...

"Short and sad" is an excellent description for this, and it captures the Gollum/Smeagol/Ring triangle perfectly.
I cannot fault it in any way- it's absoloutly beautiful. You should be damn proud, and it's obvious that you have quite a talent when it comes to poetry, as I have read some of your other poems, and they are all beautiful. Well done.

In Flux by GreenWoodElleth Rated: PG-13 [Reviews - 27]
Summary: Yeah, sure. I'd thought about it. I'd totally considered it. Going to Middle Earth by some magical means...yada, yada, yada the whole nine yards(with sexy elves to boot.) It was something I considered much in the way somebody would consider a holiday they hoped to but knew hey would never have.
I hadn't thought about dying in a bus accident. I hadn't thought about my friends being there. I hadn't thought about waking up with a new body, a new name, and a new history.
And to make it all the more dramatic...I am soo dead if I don't get my Latin homework in on time.

I like the way you've described the Nazgul's fear of water. Very nice. :)

Author's Response: They all have it to some degree (except for Angmar). Tolkien himself observed their fear of water and ability to move around the landscape were inconsistant. I resolved it by saying that walking across over flat stones was the same as "walking dryshod over a bridge", which they can do.
