Author has written 13 stories for Lord of the Rings.

I have been a confessing Tolkien addict for the last fourty years, but it is only one year now that I discovered the existence of the PC, internet and fanfiction! What a world to explore!;-)

Being no native speaker, I at first shrank from writing anything myself, as I am sure that I am not able to really express myself in a foreign language the same way I would in my mothertongue, but seeing the way many of the native speakers treat something as defenceless as the English language I was convinced I could not do worse.;-))Taking a plunge into muddy waters now, I just hope to escape the watcher, and make it through the long night of ff.net.

The picture shows my dog Ebba, a Newfoundlander, who weighs nearly as much as me, but is a much nicer bitch than me!:-DDD

I'm fond of realism, plausible action, believable characters, convincing dialogues and all these mean things that demand a lot of work and accurateness on behalf of the author. Perhaps I was a member of the Spanish Inquisition in one of my former lives, who knows? Though my husband claims I must have been a reindeer, as I drag him across Hardanger Vidda as often as I can.:-)

I am a canon stickler and hate Mary Sues and cheap and cheesy Legolas fics, pathetic romances and mp, hurt/comfort stuff and people who mess up Middle-Earth's geography!

But I do like anything well written, be it whatever genre, age or character, though I am absolutely doting on Rohan and anything Rohirric. ( What else can be expected from an old farmer's wife, coming from a country that has a rearing stallion in her flag?)

As I don't want to have to write a disclaimer for every drabble I might be posting, I do it here, once and for all:

Hey, ye blokes at Tolkien Fund etc., I admit not to own Middle-Earth, anybody or anything living there, I promise to respect the Professor and his marvellous work, even if I tend to write parodies, I just borrow all these wonderful things to use them in this playground of my weird phantasy.

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

Summer 2011:I finally managed to publish the first chapter of a multipart story, thanks to the encouragement and patience of Lialathuveril, who challenged me to get going (or rather writing;-)) and Ygrain, who propped up my ego, every time I was about to give up, and who I both would like to thank very much.

I know, there are already enough of Éomer/Lothíriel stories on the net, but anyway: Here is my version, and I hope it adds some new flavour to a well-known and well-liked dish.;-)

Being the realism-freak I am, I tried to show the characters as realistic as I thought necessary. So folks: A conversation between warriors is no coffee party of the local church choir. If you feel offended by drastic language, please refrain from reading.

I mainly focussed on the cultural differences between Gondor and Rohan, and tried to show how those two in the end manage to overcome them, relying on cultural studies of different nomadic and half-nomadic tribes, written records about life in the Viking settlement of Haithabu and last but not least my favourite, the "Edda".

The Assassin's Creed by Domestic Duchess reviews
He was EomerKing, a pig-headed, hot tempered SOB with a kind and compassionate heart that belied his gruff, taciturn exterior. She was a beautiful girl, marked by the Valar, with a mysterious past and seemingly no future. Updated! 2/14

Clouds Over Isen reviews

Of Rank and File reviews
This little one-shot was prompted by a discussion with Katzilla, concerning the reaction of the two ordinary Rohirrim out on the plains, who are told by Théodred to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear on anything they might behold on their watch. (Chapter 6 of her current story "Adventures of an Éored") So here comes a bit of ordinary earthy fun of Thanwen-Universe.

Hidden Currents reviews
How did Prince Imrahil of Dol Amroth, the most important lord of Gondor except the Steward himself, meet his future wife? And how did the two of them manage to kick off the hugest scandal since the days of Imrazor and Mithrellas? Spin-off from "Through Shadow"; just a bit of fluff and fun.

Re-Visited reviews
Some authoresses are kissed by the muse, some are bitten by a plot-bunny, others yield to their readers' demands. But the most dangerous challenge for any authoress is the clamour of some characters, who turn up at her doorstep, demanding their stories to be continued. Just some chapters of fun set in "Thanwen Universe" but otherwise strictly canon.

Through Shadows reviews
Do you believe in love at first sight? I do not, no matter what the Professor tells us. So here comes my attempt of a plausible and hopefully entertaining story why and how Éowyn and Faramir came to love each other. Classical gap filler; strictly book-verse.

A Wind From the Sea reviews
A sequel to "Choppy Waters". Seven months can be quite a long time, especially if you spend them waiting to be united with the one you love. But life does not stop and many things can happen during the winter, both in Gondor and the Riddermark.

Some characters come to haunt their authors because of what they have written. What if some Horselord turned up at your place because of what you did not write? Dedicated to my husband and all those folks who liked "Choppy Waters". ;-

What might the common Rohir think, seeing his King and new Queen in obvious bliss and mutual understanding? Warning: You might enjoy the story for itself but to understand the punch line you should have read Lialathuveril's "The Abduction of Éomer".

Hiding in the northern Ered Luin after the conquest of Fornost by Angmar in TA 1974, Arvedui, the last king of the northern Dúnedain kindom, ponders his situation. This was written as a birthday present for Ygrain33, who wanted something dark.
