Author has written 2 stories for Lord of the Rings.
Me: I'm one of those people who's very quiet until you get to know them, but then refuse to shut up once they've gotten comfortable. I've been told I'm very cheerful. I'm a hopeless romantic, and have a weakness for nostalgia and people with dark, mysterious pasts. I usually end up as the group peacemaker. But I'm friendly:)
Hobbies/Interests: Student at University of Hong Kong. College has eaten my brain. Other than that, I am an avid reader, writer, jazz-and-modern dancer (since about '02), figure-skater (since about '00, but now on possibly permanent hiatus), and artist. I am fascinated by ancient warfare, listen to music almost obsessively, like archaeology, and am studying Japanese. I love my sleeping-bag. I like the words 'guacamole' and 'muttonchops'. I want to build a catapult.
Music: My Chemical Romance, Vienna Teng, Adam Lambert, Evanescence, Metallica, The Killers, Green Day, Nickleback, Flyleaf, Owl City, Linkin Park, The Cranberries, Blackmore's Night, Guns 'N' Roses, and Edvin Martin, plus random movie soundtracks, pop stars, and new age and adult contemporary artists.
My Writing: I wrote a bunch of Lord of the Rings fanfics when I was 13. Since then, I've been on hiatus, until a Naruto yaoi fanfic exchange in Summer 2009 jump-started my writing again. So the creative juices are flowing! Hooray! However, I do my new writing under another name. Also, my biggest fic - The Fellowship As Professors - was taken down by ffnet some years ago without my permission, because it was in script format. D8 Some day I plan to edit and repost the entire thing on my livejournal.

"A day may come when the courage of men fails! When we forsake our bonds, and break all bonds of fellowship! But it is not this day. An hour of wolves!

MEN OF THE WEST!!" - Aragorn
