Author has written 11 stories for Lord of the Rings, X-Men: The Movie, and Silmarillion.

Hello and welcome! Pull up a chair and make yourself comfortable. Call me Effie or EC.
I'm a cat-adoring vet who is addicted to reading, with preferences ranging from JRR Tolkien to Arthur Conan Doyle, from Diana Wynne Jones to Frank Herbert.
On fanfiction, Middle-earth is my world of choice, but I dabble my fingers in other worlds when the fancy strikes.
When writing, I try to keep my characters realistic and like to steer clear of clichés. The demands of real life, however, cause updates to my fanfics to be infrequent.
On reviewing, I like to give (and receive) well-rounded reviews and constructive criticism, because they eventually help a writer better themselves, whereas one-liners or only favouriting aren't so useful.

    Where the Sun Sails by sian22 reviews
    'You left the East Wind to me,' said Gimli, 'but I will say naught of it.' A missing fable of Middle-Earth. How Amrûn, Manwe's fair fey Maia of the East Wind came to be so ill thought of and how she learned the need for a steady path. Tied for first in Teitho's August challenge with Wynja2007's amazing "A Good Idea at the Time."
