New to the LotR fandom, though a long time fan of Tolkein and have been fooling around in the realm of fan ficiton in another fandom for around six years.  During a discussion of fan fic in general, a friend noted my interest in LotR and sent me a couple of links to archives.  Needless to say, I was instantly hooked.


I've found the substance abuse of fan fiction leaves no traces and is cheaper and healthier (sorta - unless one counts the weird pscyological issues that can devlop from living in a fantasy world all the time) than most other addictiions.  And really, who can resist the elf?  Yes, yes, I know there are some who can, I'm just not one of them.  I've always been drawn to males who could make caressing a bow look like a lover's touch.

Breath of an Elf by Tanis [0 Reviews]

A straight up, no chaser, hurt and comfort tag (with permission from Beth) to her 1st Place Teitho Challenge story ...and it was done.  While Breath of an Elf can be read as a stand-alone story, I can guarantee you will get more out of it if you've read Beth's story first; it's posted here on this archive if you've a mind to hunt it up.  BoaE opens a few hours after aiwd closes.

Lost & Found by Tanis [0 Reviews]

Legolas doesn't know he's lost, but neither Aragorn nor Gimli can find him.  Accompanying this story is both a story trailer video and a podfic - and Michele suggested I add a link to the video.  So go here if you'd like to watch the video trailer:  http://www.iiiionly.com/lotr/
