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...

I know exactly why you're writing this, as I only recently got over the fact that I wasn't going to meet Viggo Mortensen, or Orlando Bloom, and neither of them were about to marry me. Sadly. Though I can dream... ;)

Author's Response: I know, that's all I do is dream...thanks for reading!


Lane's story continues as she arrives in Edoras. Lane knew what it was to fight for the honor of her country, but she has never fought to help save innocent lives. And a closeness has grown between Legolas and Lane, but will their friendship survive it?

Wonderful. Your writing was very emotive, especially when you wrote about the boys turning into men with the coming of the dawn.
Love it! :)

Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked that part. I always thought it was very sad to think of how many childhoods were lost in that battle.


And I'm finally back with a new chapter, so check it out!

I was terrified that you'd abandoned this- I can't tell you how glad I was when I got an email saying that you'd updated!! Thank you!! :)

I'm so glad that Legolas and Lane have now "plighted their troth" and I only hope you don't do something to wreck their hapiness. If you do, I shall cry. Just a warning. ;)

Author's Response:

This story it all pretty well plotted out in my mind, so I won't abandon it. And hopefully I won't leave you hanging for so long again either!

Thanks for sticking with me!


Check out the new chapter!

'Twas a joy to read, as always.
I especially liked the inclusion of Lane's family history with the Irish parting toast and chapter title- it was a nice touch; and the twist too, sending Lane to Minas Tirith with Gandalf and Pippin. :)
Looking forward to Book Three!

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for the review!

Check out the first chapter of the final story!

I can picture Legolas and Gimli setting up a business together. ;)
Love it.


Once upon a time, there was an FBI agent who had given up on love; that is, until an expensive car showed up in front of her house. The next thing she knew, she was learning how to surf, meeting celebrities, and realizing that not everyone in the world needs to be put in handcuffs.

Sod James- I hope she tells him to bog off...
Great! I especially love the serial killer joke. ;)

Wow... What a bombshell to end on. Things better get better from here; no pressure...

Don't worry about the wait, it was certainly worth waiting for. :)

Thank you for your kind review and for reading!

Ooooh don't worry, I have other things planned for Andrea and Dominic ;)

Yes, I'm mentally kicking Andrea right now. What is she doing?!

Nice twist, by the way, but Dominic better come back soon...

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for always taking the time to read and review my story. It really means a lot, and I hope to never disappoint!

I know...whatever will we do with Andrea? ;) And don't worry about Dominic! His part in this story is not even close to being done. :D

You've managed to make me both hate and love Andy at exactly the same time, which is quite an achievement, so I congratulate you on that, and on yet another excellent chapter! (Though I may not have liked what happened...) >.<

Good luck in your classes!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Elbereth, for this comment and all of your other wonderful comments you have left for my story! Hm, Andy is certainly going through some rough times. Hopefully she will be able to redeem herself before the end of the story ;)

Thanks so much!

You are so good at making me both hate and love Andy at the same time...

Anyway, great chapter, and nice twist having Billy arrive at the door to see whether Andy was alright. I can't help hoping that Dominic will arrive early and sort things out... And yes, I am one for happy-endings. ;)

Date: 22/08/12 Title: Chapter 13: And One More Thing

How dare you ruin my day like that?! I was convinced that everything was going to be all nice and happy, and then you stick THAT right at the end. I have to hand it to you, that was one hell of a bombshell- and an unpleasant one at that.

Other than that, I have no criticism whatsoever (if you can call the above criticism- it was kindly meant) but you better be quick with the sequel...

That's all from me, but thank you so much for making this such an enjoyable story to read right from the start- with so many twists and turns in the plot. Amazing.

No galu govad gen.
