IT'S THE NEW AND IMPROVED PROFILE PAGE...NOW WITH FAQs!!

Hi, Quill and Saber here! Let's start out with a little (abreviated) profile, shall we?

Name: just stick with Runa. I was named for a Valkyrie (and one of the stupid ones at that), and if you look up a list, you'll find that most Valkyries have weird, unusual names.

Fanfiction Categories of Interest: Lord of the Rings and its derivatives, Harry Potter, Spirited Away, Ouran High School Host Club, Avatar, Naruto (up to Shippuden), Furuba, Merlin

Favorite Pairings: any canon pairing from Lord of the Rings, Zutara and Taang and Sokki from Avatar: the Last Airbender, HaruMori for Ouran High School Host Club (crack pairings adored if they can be justified), ChihiroHaku for Spirited Away, Viktory from Harry Potter, MorMer from Merlin


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q: Who are the characters in the When We Meet Again trilogy?
A: The stories were designed to not only be fanfiction, but to be able to stand alone (albeit somewhat shakily). Therefore, the answer doesn't matter. If you really want to know what I intended, they are as follows: Children Need Care stars Max as Marie and Fang as Nick, Rest in Peace stars Nudge as Monique and Iggy as James, and In the Arms of the Angel has Gazzy as Joshua and Angel...well, you can figure that one out.

Q: When are you updating _?
A: When my back stops hurting. Really, I have serious upper back and shoulder issues (my trapezius never fully developed), and it really gets in the way of writing and typing. Therefore, every multi-chapter thing I have up is ON HIATUS until further notice.

Q: Are you going to continue _?
A: Does it say that the story is on indefinite hiatus? Then even I don't know. If you're referring to "Children Need Care," "Saving Middle-earth," and "Meeting Mary-Sue," I still really don't know. The first and third were intended to be one-shots when I first wrote them, so it's kind of difficult figuring out how to continue them. I'm waiting for inspiration to continue the second one, and this is where you, the reader, come in. If you have an idea, please PM me or post it in a review. I'll try to update as soon as possible, but see above.

Q: Why is there so much wrong stuff in Likely?
A: Take a second to look at the date when it was first published. This story was started before New Moon came out. Seriously, people. The facts surrounding the story were correct according to the books released at the time. I have now read all of the books, but I hadn't then.


18 Jan 2015

I know, it's been forever--nine years since I started writing and three and a half since my last update. Writing was difficult for years, but now I've broken the writer's block that plagued me for so long.

16 May 2009

I'm not dead yet! However, I have changed significantly, so you will be seeing new material, BUT it will be very different from what I've posted before. My current project is a fanfic of, of all things, the Elder Edda, one of the oldest pieces of Nordic literature. You should see that come up before June.

19 Jan 2006

I am here to apologize to the entire Lord of the Rings community here, for I fear I set loose a monster.
I first started writing on another site (which shall remain nameless), but then I switched over here because I didn't have to format my stories by hand. I left a little note saying I'd transferred. Among my readers was a Sue spawner (who shall also remain anonymous). She is now here, spreading her evilness.
You may now pelt over-baked, hockey-puck consistency cookies at me.

The Princess and the Horse Lord by Oshun reviews
This novel begins as a coming of age story set in a time of war and its aftermath.
