"When Jesus called Peter to come to him
across the water, Peter, for one brief, glorious moment,
remembered how and strode with ease across the lake.
This is how we are meant to be, and then we forget, and we sink.
But if we cry out for help (as Peter did) we will be pulled
out of the water; we won't drown. And if we listen,
we will hear; and if we look, we will see."
-Madeleine L'Engle

So hi. A bit about me: I'm somehow not a college student anymore. Not sure how that happened. Graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in English. I'm a proud Hufflepuff. I've been reading since before I could walk, and writing my own stories since I was fourteen. I discovered The Lord of the Rings in high school and fell in love with Tolkien's world. I grew up, too, reading The Chronicles of Narnia and Harry Potter, but Tolkien is the fandom I always come back to at the end of the day.

Other well-liked authors include but are not limited to: John Green, John Keats, Shakespeare, F Scott Fitzgerald, Maureen Johnson, Jane Austen, Stephanie Perkins, & Harper Lee.

Here is what I am currently reading. Besides words, I enjoy photography, chocolate, music, songs about particle physics and anglerfish, mountains, movies, cute things, and being a Nerdfighter.

In case you hadn't guessed, the vast majority of my stories are either The Lord of the Rings or Silmarillion fics. I have also ventured occasionally into the Harry Potter, Narnia, Paper Towns, and Doctor Who fandoms - writing-wise. Reading-wise, I've poked around a lot.

DFTBA
