Heya, I'm Laire, and go by as such, or Ainu Laire, all over the web. I'm a college student who has been writing fan fiction, and always only for the Tolkien fandom, since summer of 2003. I am what you may call a extreme Tolkien nerd. My knowledge tends to lie with the general history of Middle-earth, obscure dates on timelines, family trees, and absolutely anything to do with Aragorn.
My favorite character is Aragorn in both book and movie-verse. I can safely say I know practically everything there is to know about his character. While I like Legolas in the books, I cannot stand him in the movies. However, I tend to like fan fiction's portrayal of him, for the most part.. it depends on the author. My other favorite characters are Gandalf, Faramir, and Halbarad- all of which should be with Aragorn in fan fiction more often, I think.
Outside of fan fic, I do a lot of art-related things. I am the founder of the Tolkien group on DeviantArt as well as the admin of the (upcoming) fan art section on TheOneRing.net. My future career hopefully lies in the arts, specifically in the entertainment industry.
Below I've listed a bunch of places where you can find me. My main fan fiction account at ff.net is listed where you can find a large variety of LOTR-related fics. My dA account contains quite a bit of LOTR fan art you may be interested in- as you may have guessed, the Arwen picture below is one of my more recent pieces. And please feel free to IM me on any of the IM services I listed. I love talking to new people :)

| Safe? by Ainu Laire [1 ]
Aragorn told Frodo not to lay aside the mithril coat “even in sleep, unless fortune brings you where you are safe for a while”. After dwelling in Lothlorien for some days, Frodo begins to wonder whether here, at last, is a land safe enough for him to take off the mithril mail. A ficlet for one of shirebound's little shirebunnies.
