Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Silmarillion.
I've been around for a while as the "Rose" half of the writing team "Gypsie Rose" (http://www.fanfiction.net/u/224369/), whose works can also be found on this archive. I finally decided to make this account to post my solo work. If you like my stories, I encourage you to check out my solo works published under the "Gypsie Rose" name:

"Under a Starless Sky" http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1637390/1/
"The Only Jealousy of Eowyn" (drabble) http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1751474/1/
"The Steward's New Clothes" http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2429963/1/

I am also the moderator of the Brothers of Gondor message board, a discussion forum dedicated to the unique characters of Gondor:
