Author has written 14 stories for Lord of the Rings.

More than any other writer, J.R.R. Tolkien has impacted and inspired me in ways too far-reaching and all-encompassing to delineate. The imprint that he has left upon me is in indelible, and all of my fanfiction submissions are created with love, deference, and the utmost respect for an author whose influence cannot be overestimated. I deal primarily in Frodo and Sam fanfiction (at least, as of now), as their relationship has resonated more deeply with me than any pairing in the sprawling pantheon of literary history. I was a mere 15 years old when I published my first attempt at poetry on this site -- more than a decade later, I find myself with a bachelor's degree in English, a keener faculty for the art of writing, and a passion that has not diminished but increased with the passing of years for a story that will always have a special place in my heart.

It is the 14th year of the Fourth Age and Aragorn Elessar, King of Gondor is troubled by one brave Hobbit. A study of the One Ring's possible effects on the other Ring-bearer long after Frodo has departed. UK English.

Where All Roads Converge reviews
The final installment in a three-part series and immediate sequel to "Into the Arms of Forever," this story will deal with Frodo and Sam's final days in Tol Eressëa and all the events leading up to the moment when they embark on the road "that we all must take." Will feature several cameo appearances from characters such as Gandalf, Elrond, and more which will remain a surprise.

Ashes of Me reviews
On the anniversary of his stabbing on Weathertop, Frodo's fevered mind begins to unravel. This is his descent into darkness as told from his perspective. Uncompromisingly bleak and intensely angsty. One-shot.

A sequel to "The Weary Trail of Deathless Days," this is the story of Frodo and Sam's life together in the Undying Lands after Bilbo's passing.

I'll Be Always In The Dark Now reviews
Sam's POV after defeating Shelob and taking Frodo for dead, written in rhyming verse. Title taken from a direct quote by Tolkien in "The Choices of Master Samwise." Reposted due to flagrant errors in the original post. Rated teen for brief allusion to suicide.

The Weary Trail of Deathless Days reviews
Frodo and Bilbo have spent many years living peacefully in the Blessed Realm, but Frodo fears that time is beginning to take its toll on his uncle even in the Undying Lands.

Unfamiliar Shores reviews
Frodo has just set sail from the Grey Havens and exchanged his final goobyes with Sam, Merry, and Pippin. This is the story of what took place en route to Valinor as he comes to terms with his decision.

What Passes On Elven Shores reviews
Sam ponders over Frodo's life in Valinor and reflects upon the nature of their friendship now that they are separated by the Sea. Written in semi-poetical form.

The Trouble With Sight reviews
My take on what Sam's internal dialogue might have sounded like as he witnesses the changes Frodo undergoes on the way to Mount Doom.

A Song to Banish the Darkness reviews
A short piece that offers a window into Frodo's possible reflections as he lies imprisoned in the Tower of Cirith Ungol - without his faithful Sam.
