Bio:
I also have an account on http://www.fanfiction.net under the penname Rhys if you want to read my non-LoTR stories: Potter, Star Wars, and X-Men, although most of the Star Wars stuff is very old and the X-Men stories are all unbearably old (and sucky) so please, ignore those as they are lame! ;)

I don't think there's really too much else to say. Um...I'm obsessed with elves in general, so be prepared--it will be very rare that I'll write anything that doesn't have at least one elf in it in a fairly large role.

Also, while I love elvish, I only know a few words so far. Therefore, if any of you sharper-minded elvish speakers out there notice problems in my Sindarin or Quenya (and there will be plenty!) PLEASE tell me what I did wrong so I can fix it. Thanks again!

And oh yes, thanks to the generosity of Camilla Sandman, I am the proud...um...owner, I suppose, of Glerfindle the mini-Balrog! *Great happiness!*

I also draw a webcomic at darkwelkin.com which generally updates with far more regularity than my hopelessly delayed stories here.

And on that note, I do promise to finish all of them...eventually. I apologize for those lengthy waits between chapters!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my little additions to Middle-earth. Hannon-le a namar.

Stories by Tathrin
Summary: After a young Eldarion poses a strange question, his parents and friends try to explain some of the Facts of Life to the five-year-old, and learn that sometimes you can over-think things. Rated because of discussion of sexuality, but at the level of a five-year-old, so if you pick up on anything it's your own fault for having a dirty mind! ;)

Summary: Gimli and Legolas take a young Eldarion adventuring. Their duty: to teach the young prince about life outside Minas Tirith, and to bring him home in a condition that won't make Arwen grab for Hadhafang--which is easier said than done! Complete!

Summary: Two immortals think on their friends' inevitable death, and try to find some comfort...Filled with the bittersweet sadness of the Elves, it's a short vignette that touches briefly--very briefly--on how difficult it is for an immortal to understand death, and an attempt to cope with their different choices regarding those deaths. Might end up having a longer story built around it later, but for now it’s just a short addition to the LoTR universe.

Mellyn by Tathrin Rated: G [Reviews - 15]
Summary: We have heard tell that Legolas took Gimli Gloin's son with him because of their great friendship, greater than any that has been between Elf and Dwarf. If this is true, then it is strange indeed: that a Dwarf should be willing to leave Middle-earth for any love. And yet, where bonds this strong exist, all things are possible. Now at last, more can be said of this matter... Winner of 2005 Flame of Arnor Awards for Best Friendship!
