Author has written 6 stories for X-Men, and Lord of the Rings.
You’re probably wondering why I post fan-fiction at my age.

It’s because I’m a huge nerd. Duh. Well, enough about me.

(Except that if anyone cares, I'm not writing any fan-fiction at present, just real-life stuff. Real life is making itself VERY intersting these days.)

RANT THAT WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO STAY UP FOR ALL TIME: How many times do I have to tell you kids – ALL females that join the Fellowship and ALL girls (even the very occasional guy) that travel from modern-earth to Middle-Earth ARE Mary-Sues! End of story!

And don’t tell me that your characters aren’t self-insert-Sues because they’re “not perfect” or “not like me at all”, the mere fact that they’re in one of those over-used plotlines is enough to make them Sues! All such stories are written because their authors want to either hang out with the Fellowship or go to Middle-Earth, all such characters live out such author’s fantasies, and therefore all such characters ARE Mary-Sues. Period.

And if you think you can de-Sue a character in such a story by trying to making her an “interesting” or “original” person you're dead wrong. Huge mistake! Don’t even try! First, if you were able to write characters anywhere near as interesting as Prof. Tolkien’s immortal creations, you wouldn’t here, you'd be published. Second, as it takes a lot of story-time to establish an OC’s personality know that even *trying* to make your character interesting or original will inevitably make your Sue guilty of Upstaging The Fellowship; if you make the attempt you won't be able to avoid neglecting the Canon characters your readers love and want to read about.

So if you have an "interesting" or "original" OC put her in an interesting or original plot! For of such is GOOD fan-fiction made.

Besides, both plots have been absolutely, completely Done To Death and the corpses have beaten into the ground besides. Have some creative pride, don't post the 10,000th damn version of the same damn story.

Mary Sue's Ugly Divorce reviews
So.... say a modern girl falls into Middle-Earth and snags Legolas. Do you think it’d last? Hah! If you’re sick of Mary-Sue, click in and see her exposed to her worst nightmare... reality! BWAHAHAHAHA!!! (Canon-sensitive and proofread)

Before the Fellowship: Aragorn and Legolas reviews
Aragorn and Legolas *must* have met before the Fellowship was formed, yet neither of them mentioned it in over 1000 pages together... because of embarassment? Estel is now frat-boy age. (Meant to be funny, at least proofread))

I finally settle the "Great Hair Debate"! reviews
Tolkien scholars have spend enough time arguing about Legolas' hair color - so I present the only possible answer! (A parody of Tolkien scholarship that contains actual research. Hopefully funny; at least canon and proofread.)

How Legolas and Gimli Became Friends reviews
Dialogue in which the Elf and Dwarf find out just how much they have in common - and it's NOTHING to do with slash. Proofread, pretty canon, and hopefully funny.

How Isildur *really* died reviews
How Isildur *really* died - it wasn't from an Orc-arrow! 99% canon, proofread, and hopefully funny.

Murder at the Cabot Lodge: A Mutant Mystery reviews
Have you ever wondered what would happen if the X-Men were called upon to solve a traditional country-house five-suspect murder mystery? Something like this, I should think…
