In my new multi-chapter fanfic, both Legolas and Thranduil find love. It's set after the Lord of the Rings, during the time Legolas' establishes his new realm in Ithilien.

I'm really proud to announce that my story Pigs, Pirates and Rum - an Unexpected Afterlife was one of 250 finalists in the 2021 Watty Awards! The winners will be selected December 3. Wish me luck. :)
Rose sinks with the Titanic and is drawn into a strange adventure with a pirate named Jack Sparrow and a diamond heart. Saving her new friends Elizabeth and Will Turner proves to be dangerous, but falling for a dishonest man on rum withdrawal is even worse.
A humorous crossover between Pirates of the Caribbean and Titanic, but can be read without having seen any of them.

Today my story Dragon Deception was finally revealed! I wrote it for the Tolkien Reverse Summer Bang 2021, which is an event where artists submit art and writers use it as a prompt.
I’ve been super hyped to show my contribution. :D I finished it already in August and have been sitting on it since...
My story is based on a chapter in the Silmarillion, which I tweaked a little bit and added some divine intervention. It can be read 'fandom blind', without any prior knowledge of Tolkien's books.
It has a dragon… angst… drama… romance… and a happy ending eventually!
The art I chose is called "In the Wake of Glaurung" and was made by Zomburai, see below.
Only Finduilas stands between Túrin and the doom the Dark Lord has intended for him, but before he can rescue her he must face Glaurung, Father of Dragons.
- A fix-it version of the Silmarillion events, where things don't go quite according to Morgoth's plans. :)
Pairings: Túrin x Finduilas, and Niënor x Brandir

Today, March 22, it's exactly 1 year since I published the first chapter of my first fanfiction: Horse Lady of Rohan. Since then I've written over 300 000 words of fanfiction, split into seven longer and shorter stories!
What began as a quarantine project has become my favorite hobby. Thank you, all readers who took the time to comment and review my work early in the process, or I might never have continued.
This calls for a celebration. :)

I had a question from a reader about the branches of elves in Tolkien's writing, and who were called the Eldar. In the Silmarillion, there is a family tree casting some light over it (click to enlarge).
The history of the division was this:
The elves were created by Eru Ilúvatar (God), and they were the fairest and wisest of his children. When they awakened on the young Arda (earth) and learned to speak, they called themselves the Quendi (speakers).
Later there was a war between the Valar (demigods) and the evil Vala Melkor (Morgoth), and afterwards the Vala Oromë decided to take the elves with him to Aman, a continent in the west where the Valar's realm Valinor was located. Oromë loved the elves, and it was he who named them the Eldar (people of the stars).
Some elves wished to stay in Middle-earth; those where called the Avari, and later Moriquendi (dark elves) because they never got to see the light of the Trees in Valinor.
Those who followed Oromë were three clans: the Vanyar, the Noldor and the Teleri.
During the journey, Oromë's path was blocked by the Misty Mountains, and he went ahead to create a path through them. But when he finally returned, some of the Teleri had come to like the place so much they wanted to stay. Those were called the Nandor, and settled in Greenwood (which was renamed Mirkwood in the Third Age).
A few of he Nandor later went through the Misty Mountains after all, but settled right on the other side of it, those were called the Laiquendi (Green elves). Those who remained in Greenwood became known as the Silvan.
Now Oromë and the elves still following him had come into Beleriand, a country that lay west of the Misty Mountains and later got destroyed. Here they again lost some elves, for a Teleri leader disappeared into the forest of Doriath (his name was Elu Thingol and the reason was - of course - a pretty girl: the Maia Melian). Those who remained to wait for him settled in Doriath and became the Sindar (Grey elves).
Meanwhile, Oromë and the Vanyar and the Noldor went to the coast, where Ulmo, the Vala of the Seas awaited them and ferried them over the ocean to Aman. But the remaining Teleri (those who were not waiting for Thingol in Doriath) had been dragging their feet, probably talking to trees, singing etc., and so when they finally arrived, they found that Ulmo's ferry had already departed.
The Teleri waited for him, but when he returned to pick them up, part of them had fallen in love with the coast and decided to stay in Middle-earth after all. Those were called the Falathrim, and their leader was Círdan Shipwright. Those who went to Aman were called the Falmari. Both these Teleri branches became great ship builders, and it was because of the Falmari's ships, the Noldor later caused the first Kinslaying (with elves killing other elves) when they wanted to return to Middle-earth.

We seldom get such cold weather this far south... down to minus 10-15 degrees Celsius on some nights! And minus degrees during daytime as well. But it's beautiful, I have to give it that.
Today I shall spend mostly indoors in front of a fire, writing about the destiny of poor Túrin for my story Thranduil's Shadow.
My Danish-Swedish farmdog during our morning walk today. :)

Now that Afterlife is completed, I felt an urge to write another humorous fic, and came up with an idea to write a story that follows the main arch of the Lord of the Rings trilogy - from the perspective of a cat!

Rainy October Saturday somewhere in southwestern Sweden. Hubby watches hockey, kids are in their rooms (using phones and/or computers probably) and I'm writing a new chapter for my Thranduil story, right now with Dynamite by Taio Cruz in my ears. Can't complain!

So, I just made another little fanfic, mostly for fun... Rose DeWitt Bukater drowns and finds herself in the 18th century Caribbean, on board the Flying Dutchman. Will Turner decides to take her to the one and only, Captain Jack Sparrow.
