Author has written 45 stories for Star Wars, Valdemar universe, Silmarillion, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Star Trek: 2009, Dragonlance, and Avatar: Last Airbender.

I like writing stories that are humorous, alternate universe or examine little-known canonical situations. My recent stories have been all over the map, and have included some more dramatic and less humorous stories than is normal for me.

I hope you like my stories. Constructive criticism and suggestions are very welcome. I also find reviews encouraging, so I'm more likely to keep writing things that are reviewed frequently. I almost always reply to signed story reviews, except during the great hiatus of 2017-May 2020, so if you have questions, ask and they will most likely be answered.

I'd also like to say thanks to a certain friend of mine who has been a sounding board for many bizarre ideas, and who has beta-read many of the things you see up here. I'd also like to thank AiedailWing and Dawn Felagund for nominating two of my stories for MEFA 2010 and one for MEFA 2011. Bringing Trouble to Barad-dur won 3rd place in the Humor: incomplete subcategory.

Blanket disclaimer: Any story I post on fanfiction.net is fanfiction. I make no money from it, and do not own any of the franchises/universes/etc. that the stories are set in. That's presumably the same for every other writer on this site, too.

Coming Soon to :

I was back to writing DS al Fine, but then got ambushed by excessive numbers of Avatar: the Last Airbender plotbunnies. I haven't given up on DS al Fine, but I'll likely be putting out mostly Avatar fanfic for at least the next few months. I know this is what I said in Nov., but it is still true. Sorry, DS al Fine readers, you're going to have to wait a while longer. Avatar readers, you're in luck.

Other Writings:

I have also had a story published in the October 2009 issue of Long Story Short http:///index.html .

Under Strange Stars by Idrils Scribe reviews
All is not well in Imladris: a very young Elrohir has disappeared. After decades he is found in the Far South of Middle-Earth. Can Glorfindel rescue the House of Earendil once more? His task is not an easy one: Elrohir has no memory of who he was, and little interest in leaving his people's fight against the Black Nùmenoreans of Umbar.

Scion of Somebody, Probably by Drag0nst0rm reviews
He picks the name because it sounds good and because he can hardly use the one he's been called for the first few decades of his life. (And if he likes the legacy inherent in it, in the idea of having a line of ancestors he can know and be proud of, it's not something he thinks on overmuch.)

When Mum Isn't Home by Prackspoor reviews

"Well, we are still alive and Melkor hasn't yet destroyed the universe. It could be worse." - "I guess everything counts as a victory if you set the bar low enough," Fingolfin said dryly.
