Author has written 3 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter.I NEED BETAS!!! At least two: one for "The Shy Chronicles" and one for a fictionpress.com story that I am working on. I did want to get one for To Dream of Elves, but seeing as it's done, that's a bit pointless. So, if you're interested in beta-ing, email me at email@example.com. Just let me know in the email 1) Your email address, 2) your SN on ff.net, and 3) Which story you're interested in. My fictionpress.com story is a bit weird and can be graphic (sex-wise) so the beta needs to be older or more mature to do that one. THANKS!!!!
Someone once asked me why I write Fanfiction. That's not an easy question to answer. Sometimes it's a release from the stress of my VERY complicated life. Other times it's because it is easier to live in a fantasy world (i.e. Lord of the Rings) than it is to live in middle of nowhere Wisconsin. It is a way to unleash my soul, I guess. :) And I write Lord of the Rings fanfic because a) my father loves LotR and b) I love elves. I think I might have been one in another life. As for Harry Potter, well, JK Rowling is a genious who created a wonderful world, and I practice for making my own worlds by dabbling in hers.

~*~Life's Little Instructions~*~
The Shy Chronicles: Shy Dhillon is just that- shy. She prefers to observe the world from behind her camera lens, but that's hard to do when you have a lightning scar and a strange connection to a boy you've never met. Harry Potter. Harry/OC later. On hold until writer's block goes away. :)
Not really sure at the moment. A few HP oneshots are running through my brain right now, but I don't know which ones to do right now.
And We'll Dance by the Light of the Moon: Harry Potter and Hermione Granger. Very fluffy, very short. One-shot. R&R, please!!
The Fellowship of Nine: I don't think many people actually read this, but it is complete. :)
To Dream of Elves: A girl comes to Middle-earth. She can go from her home to Middle-earth freely, but when her home becomes painful, she escapes into Middle-earth. Soon, she must make a choice: stay with her family and try to work through the hard things, or stay in Middle-earth and be happy?
