Poll: Most if not all of you know I'm writing original fiction out on FictionPress. At least one is planned for publication. Given you're here because (presumably) you like my fan fiction, would you be interested in something original by me, even if you had to pay a little something to read it? Vote Now!
Author has written 31 stories for Lord of the Rings, Elder Scroll series, Warcraft, Aliens/Predator, and Hobbit.
NANOWRIMO 2013 DONE AND WON! How exciting is that? :D Don't be surprised if I'm a bit absent from fan ficcing for awhile - I'm enjoying writing Assemble at the Gates, and in particular the leading Orc character. Who wouldn't love an Orc named Aengus? :D I may pop in and do a random chapter here and there, but for now, I'm concentrating on the original work in hopes of getting it published at some point.
ATTENTION: For anyone who has asked me if I write anything of my own invention, I totally do! Feel free to visit my profile on FictionPress, the FFN sister site for original works, and see what you think. And yeah, because my head is totally in Orc pants these days, there's Orcs over there, too. ;)
SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: The wonderful author of Splint, helenamarkos, has taken on the task of continuing The Healer's Oath for me since I have too many damn fics and she really liked those two crazy kids. Read her story called Oaths and make sure you review! That is an order! :D
Prepare yourself for a roller-coaster ride. While I've been writing this and that for decades, I've really stepped it up in the last year or so here on FFN. My attention shifts wildly, which should explain the large number of WIPs on my profile, in varying states of completeness. But even if I ignore a story for a long, looooong time, rest assured I will complete it. Some day.
Getting Orcs Laid 101
I'm sure you're all wondering why I have a 'penchant' for writing about these rough-housing beasts and their complicated love lives. When I figure it out, I'll let you know. ;) Ultimately, these stories seem to be variations on the 'Beauty and the Beast' theme, except the Beast doesn't physically transform into a handsome prince at the end. He's a beast from start to finish, but maybe he's a little… nicer… at the end. Maybe he has some beauty inside of him that won't come out unless someone goes looking for it. Who better to look for and find beauty than… a Beauty?
So yes, I go to great lengths to get Orcs laid. But it's only a small part of the story. Read on. It's all about the journey, folks. For most of these guys, it's a frickin' slog.
UPDATE: Why should Orcs have all the fun? Now serving Warcraft Troll needs on Aisle 9! Sixty-nine, that is! :D
My LOTR Black Speech is from thedialect exclusively. You may consult the dictionary on that site if you want to know the meanings of the majority of my OC Orcs' names, even Ashtulagal in "Duty Calls."
I'm now on Tumblr!, and anything else I find interesting. :)
Also posting my own drawings (and some from my kids) on.
