Author has written 22 stories for Lord of the Rings.Updated 4/26/04
I am called Kal for those who wish to call me anything.
On this page you will see quite a variety of Lord of the Rings fanfiction, most of which being my earlier, less talented work. For quite a long time I have been using fanfiction.net to refine my style and so far this method has worked. I find my only true passion in life is the written word, it has been the breath of my existence ever since I was capable of writing a word. When I was eight I made fast friends with a fellow writer and we wrote stories for each other as a way of escaping the horrors of our third grade teacher. As we watched her tear up our work, snap our rulers against our desks, and drag us out of the room by our wrists for holding the pencil wrong (which I still do to this date, most likely just to spite her) we wrote as if our very lives depended on it. Both of us still write madly to this day. That's all you really need to know about me, the rest you can gain from my work if you so wish to read it, which I assume you do if you have gotten this far in my bio.
Now you may ask, "Why Lord of the Rings?" To begin exlaining this I must make clear that I have reached the boundries of love for Tolkien and his work. I did not know love had boundaries as many romantics will tell you it is boundless. They're wrong and once you reach the full capacity it hurts. I cannot say this is the greatest tribute I can give Tolkien short of starting a cult in which he is God (option still open) but it is something.
Some of you may be wondering why I have been saying that once I finish my current fic I plan to leave. Fanfiction has offered me quite a lot but I feel as if I'm neglecting my real work, my novels and own personal original creations. We shall see what time reveals and if I truly continue fanfiction work or not.
Well that's me, did I forget to mention I'm a little long winded?
I hope you find some joy in my work as I found joy in Tolkien's.
PS: I just wanted to make this quite clear. I have not, do not, and never will write any SLASH in any way shape or form. You may take that as a political view if you will, as for me, I don't care how it is taken. I do not wish to deny anyone the right to write about what they will and I think the words of Voltaire could sum it up best.
"I may not like what you have to say, but I will fight to the death for your right to say it."
I interpret Tolkien's words as, I hope, he best meant to portray them. The amazing relationships Tolkien created, I think, were made quite clear. From what I have gained he was not a very cryptic man and whatever he meant he said outright and clear. He makes that quite clear in his twenty page Author's Note in the beginning of FOTR. I think if he went through the trouble to blatantly tell you, he implied nothing by these words, not symbolism nor allegory, I believe he follows the same rule for character relationships.
I also follow said rules.
I imply nothing by these words, not symbolism nor allegory, and the same goes for character relationships.
