Bio:

Mae govannen! Im Indy.

I first read LotR shortly before the movies came out and liked them well enough, though it took me nearly a year to pick up RotK after I finished TT because I had convinced myself Frodo was going to die. I reread LotR after RotK the movie was released and, from there, moved straight into The Silmarillion, which I fell in love with immediately.

I first became involved in Tolkien fandom-- primarily LotR-- on fanfiction.net in the 2004 to 2006 timeframe. I slid out of the fandom and didnt return until the fall of 2008-- this time, to the Silmarillion subsection. SWG is my main fandom archive. (My non-Tolkien fic can be found on AO3.)

Maglor and Elrond are my favorite characters, but I like the Noldor in general. (Im firmly on Fanors side.) I also love original characters.

My primary fic verse is Rise Again From Ashes and its attendant stories. (The series is complete as of August 2013.) Beyond RAFA, I dont have a set universe, and my others stories tend to be standalones. About half of those are AU.


(Works based on mine: Fanart is always accepted. Please ask if you want to translate anything or write fic. Everything else-- including podfic-- is a no.)
