Bio:

I am a long-time fan of Tolkien, and especially of the First Age. Of late, however, I have been mostly involved with the Second Age for writing purposes. Fortunately, Christopher Tolkien edited the texts of both ages in a neat little book called "The Silmarillion".

In other Tolkien circles I am known as Maeve, a name that came up almost by accident. After five years, I finally thought it had been more than enough.

Something else about me: I have a one-track mind when it comes to writing. So if I´m involved in a hundred-chapter-long fic (as I am right now), do not expect me to write things for challenges, birthdays, etc, unless it´s vignettes about the characters I am currently exploring. I really hate that about myself. It makes my online life a bit... un-dynamic.

As for the rest: I´m 21, and a Greek and Latin philologist. I´ve been into online Tolkien fanfiction since 2002, I´m *not* a native English speaker (which will show especially in my earlier fics) and I´m not the most organised of people (which will show especially in this bio).

ps: I like Phoenicians, too (which will show especially in my "Full of Wisdom" fic). My city was founded by them 3,000 years ago.

Update: I keep a LJ now. And you are very welcome to visit it. http://dracoena.livejournal.com/
