I am English and my favourite character is Aragorn.I first started writing as a child. Later in life, having Internet access encouraged me to take up the hobby again, I wrote my first LOTR fanfic after seeing "The Return of the King" as I wanted to fill in the gaps! It was meant to be my only one, but I fear I've become addicted to writing about my favourite characters.

It's Out of My Hands by Firniswin [2 Reviews]
Fifteen years is a long time, but after The War of the Ring, Aragorn is busy up to his eyeballs with being King of Gondor. When he is allowed to hold a special party, he invites many people, and in particular one important friend. Little does he know of the greedy eyes that watch his kingdom, not to mention his beloved wife.

You deserved to win the challenge with this ! I wish I could have created so much angst in my current story when Aragorn is lamenting Faramir's blood on his hands. You have a true gift.

This was just heart rending. It must have been so hard for a caring man like Aragorn, but he did at least ease the boy's pain and fear. Very well written!

I like your Ivorwen. Arathorn and Gilraen were fated to marry and have their son.



Author's Response:

Hi Linda, yes.. how would matters have turned out differently if they had... It is still a struggle for Gilraen, after all, imho, a lot is asked of her. Her linnod in the appedix of Lord of the Rings speaks volumes to me. I hope that I soon can get the first chapters to my editor since I am rewriting this (what you've read is the old version), so that I can show how Gilraen makes amends with this before she will marry, making use of canon about other fated couples who at their turn made their sacrifices for the good of Middle-earth ánd also hope to make the connection to their son and his love, Arwen later in the novel. 

Thank you for your review Linda, the new version of this story will most certainly go up here!

I only just found this enjoyable story. I love Mouse, he is a close relative of my  Zachus, a real character. A great angsty story.

Author's Response: Well, I wanted a horse that was as far away from the usual ME-horses as possible. But I was pretty sure I wasn't far from reality with Mouse. I've known horses like him:) I'm glad you liked it!

Keepsakes by Calenlass Greenleaf [3 Reviews]

Companion piece to "Thorongil, Eagle of the Star." My obsession for shiny jewelry and all of Aragorn's names. First, it was Aragorn's brooch, now it's the Elessar. Fluff alert!

No slash, sex, smut, profanity, or romance is intentional or suggested. Any love is familial, parental, or brotherly.

This has be utterly gripped! I wonder what concerns Legolas? I hope Aragorn will change his mind about escorting the Elves to Rivendell.

I like the way Lenwe tries to prepare Nienor,losing a loved one is very hard.



Author's Response:

Thanks, Linda!    I'm so pleased that you like the first few chapters, as I was afraid everyone would fall asleep before they got to the 'good' parts.

Nienor is one of those characters that you create for a specific purpose, but then start to have their own ideas and personality. Now I'm rather fond of him, and feel a little guilty for the wringer I'm putting him through. Not too guilty, though!

thanks again,

Pentangle 

Reviewer: lindahoyland Signed

Another gripping chapter. I think what Legolas feels is like knowing we must lose someone much older who is dear,to us mortals.

You have me wondering what those 2 Elves are plotting now !



Author's Response:

Thanks, Linda!

I think you are exactly right about Legolas; and he needs Aragorn to help him through this. The ranger is being stubborn at the moment, though. Usually, in my fics, it's the elf that's causing a problem, dunno why, but this time it's Aragorn's turn.

Next chapter is the worst, tissue-wise. Just a warning for a faithful and generous reviewer!
