Author has written 11 stories for Hobbit, and Lord of the Rings.
I'm a 45 years female living in Brazil; English is not my first language, so I apologize beforehand for any mistakes and style blunders.
The first book I ever read in English was Duna, by Frank Herbert, when I was 15. The next one was The Lord of The Rings, and then I knew I was hopelessly in love with Middle-Earth for life.
"Loyalty, Honor, and a Willing Heart" is my first fanfic; I decided on writing everything before starting to post because I go so frustrated when I start to read a good story, then it gets breathtaking, and suddenly the writer simply stops to post! It took me more or less three months writing, albeit I was thinking about the story for some weeks already when I started to write it. I've added some scenes on behalf of suggestions of readers, too. It is 37 chapters long plus an epilogue, and about 115.000 words long. It is rated T due to "some violence" and "minor suggestive adult themes", but I made a fork rated M from Chapter 28 on due to "non-explicit suggestive adult themes".
I'm writing a sequel to it,"Send me an Owl". It starts with some letters from Bilbo, Iris, Ellen, Wolfram and other characters from “Loyalty, Honor, and a Willing Heart” after the story’s epilogue. There happens more adventure when the family portrayed in the first fic visits Erebor on years 28 after BoFA; there is also the story of a deceased dwarf in the forges of Mahal; it is not posted in the correct timeline of the story, because it will explain some things that are to be revealed only in the second visit.
I decided on splitting the sequel in two, because Send me an Owl was becoming too long; so, next visit 56 after BoFA will happen in a third story, probably to be called "The Parting Glass". This one I intend to write whole and only then post, because I feel very guilty when I'm not able to post every week or two and I think some readers got bored with eventual delays.
Reviews and suggestions are welcome, I might write suggested scenes if they fit into the plots.
One of the other projects include a prequel to this fanfic, that would be no fanfic at all, but using the characters I developed for it, including Ellen's older brother, Wolfram, father of Lily and Iris.
Thank you so much for reading!
