Bio:

I like alliteration and subtlety; one day I hope to achieve the latter. I'm especially interested in the exploration of Tolkien's world and mythos from unusual perspectives.  I also post as Clodia at FFN, LOTRFF and SoA and I exist on LJ as clodia_metelli.


Concrit, questions and general conversation are welcome everywhere, but especially here.  Feedback is love.  But in any case, if you've glanced at any of my stories, thank you for reading!
