Author has written 19 stories for Lord of the Rings.
I don't have a lot of my fics here at ff.net. Mostly I post on my own site (www.bagendwest.net) and on the Frodo's Harem Fanfiction Archive (www.frodosharem.org) where I have adopted the title "Angst Maven" for my great love of good Fro-Angst (as if there were any better source of angst in all of literature!). My specialities are writing book canon stories (I may love PJ's films, but if I am going to interpret a work, it will be the master's, thank you.), HEAVY angst and I have been told I write fairly good hobbit porn. ;)

If you are interested in Frodo het, or indeed, if you are just curious, not realizing that such a thing could exist, please consider visiting the harem site before you judge it. Our fics are some of the best.
