Author has written 14 stories for Lord of the Rings.

Librarian, parent, spouse, owner of 90 pounds of furry animal. Reader and fantasy lover since I first learned to read. A resident of the frozen North, hence the username. These were my first publicly posted stories, although I'd written bits and scraps of original fantasy and "fanfiction" (not realizing then what it was) since my teen years. I would never have tried to write JRRT fanfiction if it weren't for two things: Peter Jackson's movie adaptation, and the Henneth Annun writers' group. Give some of the credit to them if you like these stories; if you don't, blame me!

All reviews and comments are greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading.

(Update, September 2007)

I've stopped updating this account; in fact, I'm not posting a lot of fanfiction anywhere these days. But if you enjoyed these stories, you might want to look at some other places where things I've written are archived:

At The Archive of Our Own (http://archiveofourown.org/users/Northland/): Mostly stories from the last couple years of the annual rare fandom fic exchange called Yuletide. Older stories from that challenge are still at the Yuletide Treasure Archive (http://yuletidetreasure.org/).

At Skyehawke (http://archive.skyehawke.com/authors.php?no=920): A few Jossverse stories (Firefly & Buffy), a couple of Rosemary Sutcliff stories, and a Deadwood vignette.

At LiveJournal (http://forodwaith.livejournal.com/tag/my+fic): Assorted challenge fics and "five things" snippets, mostly for TV fandoms (Heroes, Deadwood, Firefly, Desperate Housewives).

At Stories of Arda (http://www.storiesofarda.com/author.asp?AuthID=569): A collection of more than fifty Tolkien drabbles written to various prompts.
