Author has written 6 stories for Alex Rider.
(Hey look who finally updated her profile for the first time in a year!!)
I'm Nienna (not my real name, but every writer needs a fanfiction-writing alter ego), and I'm making my way through college with a history/political science double major (agh)
. I'm Catholic, I love Tolkien, and I love to write. I play the violin, piano, guitar and flute, and I sing in choir. My favorite books are: Tolkien's works, the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini, The Alex Rider series, the Gabriel Allon books by Daniel Silva, Rick Riordan's works (most of them) and Harry Potter.
My username on here, Nienna, is the Vala of Mourning from The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien. She wept for the scarring of the land of Middle Earth. Fun fact; her other titles are 'Mistress of Death', 'The Sighing One', 'The Winter One', and 'Night'. Personally, I don't have this much angst ascribed to me but she's one of my favorite characters in the Ainulindale (creation of Ea, eventually Middle Earth) and she was Gandalf's teacher.
Honestly, writing fanfiction is rather hard for me. It feels awkward, like I'm reaching into someone else's world and moving pieces around, but it's an excellent exercise and I really enjoy it :)
