Author has written 11 stories for Lost, Lord of the Rings, and Jupiter Ascending.

Thank you for visiting my profile!

The Lost stories were created to help me cope with what I felt was the untold by the TV show. Mainly it deals with Jacob and Man In Black. The chronological order is:

Wheel of Fortune - In the middle of Across the Sea. Man in black finds a cute, but dead, redhead stranger in the jungle and after a visit to magic mom brings her back to his village. His idea is to use her knowledge to get off the island, but she's difficult and he's got to figure out how to win her over to help him.

Being Protector - Right after Across the Sea up until Ab Aturno - Jacob has to figure out what that black smoke is - or who it is and discovers his powers and how to use them to learn what he needs to do in order to be a good protector.

Lost Love - After Ab Aturno all the way up until The End - Jacob's back story, how the Others, Jacob's people came to be and how Ilana is his daughter. This is a long attempt at fixing all the plot holes in Lost.

The Others Ever After - After The End, in the sideways universe, all the Others, Jacob and MIB get to rediscover each other and go into the light.

The LOTR stories were inspired by my love of the elves, and wanting to explore more of their lifestyle and what it is like living so long. Heartsong was written years and years ago, but I've picked it up again, edited it and have written a sequel, a prequel and am working on two more stories in that sliver of LOTR universe.

Chronological order:

The Courtship of Muriel - Finished story of Haldir's first love in his very early youth.

An Elf's Best Friend: Sullendry - Finished story of how Haldir met his horse, from the horse's pov.

Heartsong - Finished first story I ever wrote in this universe. Haldir falls in love (again)... There is symbolism in it with white flowers being new love.

Envied Mortality - Finished - but I'm in the middle of a major edit (that is clearly marked) so some of it might be confusing if you read past the edit line. It's about Haldir's life after marriage and expands to tell some dramatic tales of his brother Rumil and Elienne's sister.

The Promise - Unfinished Legolas love story, sequel to Envied Mortality. (don't read the intro to this if you are going to read EM)

Jupiter Ascending - This universe fascinated me, especially the royal Abrasax family and I didn't feel the movie had time to do enough with them or their back story and wanted to explore the reasons for the way they behaved in the movie. Especial Balem who was simply riveting.

Haute Couture A Beauty and the Beast Tale (In the middle of heavy editing)- I started writing this as a fun story about an outfit I liked... planning to just toy around with Balem being an artist and dealing with his fear of his mom and his reaction to someone really old. It transformed as I was writing it into a 'Beauty and the Beast" Story.

Balem is the beast within, but his 'beauty' is beastly outside. When she sees good in him, he is drawn to that version of himself but his buried self-hatred begins to surface and unfortunately the more he begins to understand how to be who he thinks he might want to be, the worse he realizes he actually is... just as those who begin to understand holiness are awakened to the littlest evil.

Some things to notice:

The parallel transformations of Adona from a physical shrunken and hideous body into a beautiful young woman with Balem's hideous shrunken heart trying to transform into someone who can love. This is also an expression of the parallel attempts of Balem and Adona to change each other into their personal ideal.

The Philosophy of Redemption which brings up the conflict between spiritual profit through atonement which requires financial sacrifice and financial profit through murder, which requires a spiritual sacrifice. Balem wants to have it all and is constantly torn by these two forces which end up making him nearly go insane.

The imagery of gold and light:

-in Balem's artwork that depict his views of the the stars and time and his decisions and paths of his life that he can't change. As an artist Balem understand how unique and precious every piece he creates is and yet through the story he is in denial that the decisions he regrets most are destroying the planets and the humans on them which are each individual masterpieces... such as Adona who has golden/silvery hair...

-the golden sequins in his haute couture that represent the stars which represents the wealth he owns

- the golden bracelets and necklace and rings that are his 'shackles' represent not just his wealth that enslaves him, but also the decisions he's made that he has not atoned for.

- the golden chariot woman from the movie comes up in 'the gilded cage' chapter. I saw that in the movie and while it may have been meant to be a real person in the movie, it is a piece of art that Balem purchases because this is how he sees himself - trapped in his position

Much dialogue from Balem's conversation with Jupiter comes up or is referred to - because in the movie he is quoting his mother and saying what he learned I use it as a way to build how he heard things as opposed to what his mother may have meant.

It takes place 2000 years before Sarephi is murdered

I hope you enjoy my stories!

From Undómiel to Tinúviel by janelover1 reviews
Arwen Undómiel: Tolkien tells us little, and Peter Jackson's portrayal stays flat; yet she must have been great to win the heart of a hero so discerning as Aragorn. Just because Arwen does not wield a sword like Éowyn does not mean she is not heroic - sometimes the battles of the soul are hardest of all. Canonical gap-filler from the perspective of Undómiel herself.

Balem Ascending
It's been a decade since Balem ascended to First Primary of Abrasax. The pressure of responsibility and the weight of his guilt has left him vulnerable to self-doubt. When a friend from his past in a similar situation reaches out to help, the temptation to seek counsel outside of his small circle of advisers and family leads him to repeat mistakes he thought had learned to avoid.

Haute Couture - A Beauty and the Beast tale reviews
Balem does not see himself as evil but is weighted by his mother's constant judgement of him. To please her he seeks the services of a physically afflicted fashion designer. Their mutual empathy awakens a sorrow and guilt in Balem that drives him to change. But changing the man requires more than changing his clothes; is redemption even possible for someone so ethically afflicted?

Sullendry: An Elf's Best Friend reviews
As a carefree colt my herd was approached by a fair but silly elf. My father and I teased him and chased him off. However, the memory of his bright presence never faded, even through the darker decades that followed. Though more wary when next we met, I was still drawn to him. This story is how our friendship has developed from a curious distraction to a lifelong companionship.
