I go by Elessar, or LSR, because they are phonetically identical. LSR makes it easier to conceal my Tolkien past.

I have a B.S. in Applied Mathematics with a minor in philosophy and physics. For about 3 years now I've been writing Star Trek: Enterprise fanfiction at www.houseoftucker.com and www.triaxiansilk.com. The second one, I own and operate. Soon to be MS student in Aerospace Engineering.

I typically only write involved, drawn out series with romantic baselines. Whether I will write a plot-based or ensemble-cast driven story with action, drama and adventure elements depends on the setting of the fandom. I've been writing Star Trek: Enterprise a lot, with about 30 stories up at Triaxian Silk, but this damn site confuses me and I don't have the patience to add them all here. Maybe some day.

In order of how much I like them, how much I read them, how much I write them, or how much I intend to write them:

Some of my favorite elements to try to include in my stories are struggle between passion and rationality, the cycle of life and death, the search for meaning in a relativist versus deterministic world, both the light and dark definitions and consequences of love and determination, the perpetual cost of sacrifice and the nature of the human relationship. I also like journeying into treachery, betrayal, fury, despair, darkness, lunacy and psychosis whenever possible, but in a carefully controlled way. Sort of how you use habanero.

Right now I'm intrigued by Terminator: SCC and am dabbling with a story in it, of the John/Cameron variety. I'm fascinated by how similar the John/Cameron ship is to the Trip/T'Pol ship in that Cameron supposedly doesn't experience emotions just as T'Pol supposedly isn't supposed to tap into them. What's particularly interesting to play with as a writer (as many here do very well) is the question of whether Cameron's emotions (if simulated) are real, what it takes for them to real, and whether emotions spent on that person are "as good as" or "as justified" as emotions spent on someone else, of flesh & blood. "Can a Vulcan love?" is kind of the central question (with the answer being "yes") to the Trip/T'Pol fandom, just as "Can a Terminator feel (love)?" being the central question to the John/Cameron. Just as many writers 'phrase' Cameron's 'love' in the sense that John is her one and abiding reason for being (whether through programming or free choice), in protecting him, and that she is uncomfortable and in a way "lesser" when he is not around -- in a remarkably almost identical way, Trip/T'Pol writers have, for about the 7-year life of the fandom now, often 'phrased' T'Pol's love in the same "let's avoid the term romantic" kind of way; T'Pol needs Trip literally to survive, as they are biologically and neurologically bonded. Still, at the core of this, her feelings are not biologically programmed into her and against her volition - just as Cameron's are not synthetically programmed into her and against her volition. Free will is a key element to most peoples' conviction - in both the TSCC and Enterprise fandoms - that these are true love.

Trip/T'Pol. This is an alternative look at the marriage scene in the episode 4x03 - Home. I wanted to believe that T'Les wanted T'Pol to be happy, even at her own expense. I think watching her go through with it damaged him forever.
