Author has written 3 stories for Lord of the Rings.
I'm a huge Lord of the Rings fan, reading the trilogy at least once a year ever since I was in elementary school. Tolkien's writing and grasp of language continues to inspire and amaze me.
My current story Building Ithilien features Legolas, one of my favorite characters from LOTR. Even before the movies, he intrigued me as a character for many different reasons. He's not just a static character; like most of the Fellowship, the quest changes him irrevocably. (I love his friendship with Gimli!) I chose his story to write, because his story is largely unwritten. Tolkien only gives us snatches of information about what becomes of Legolas after the destruction of the Ring.
I enjoy both reading and writing fanfiction, largely because of the creativity and freedom that it presents to authors.
Okay, so I've had some questions, mostly:
Are you ever going to finish Buidling Ithilien? The answer is yes. It will be completed. I love it too much not to finsih it. ;)
Why don't you write something else? Right now, I'm just focusing on finishing Building Ithilien. It's my priority right now. If I ever did decide to write something else, I'm not even sure what it would be. I've done LotR for so long now, it might be interesting to try another fandom... I honestly have no idea. If I could just finish Building Ithilien, I would feel pretty darn liberated!
Of course, I'm always open to suggestions! ;)
