Bio:

I discovered fanfiction in 95, slash in 98, and have been writing LotR slash since 2003 - my favourite pairing is Glorfindel/Legolas, but I love most elf slash. My longest story, a universe I have been working on since entering this fandom in 2003, deals with controversial themes like non-con, mpreg and bdsm. Apart from fanfiction, I am very interested in all of Tolkien's works, from his non-Middle-earth stories to his academic writing, and wrote my MA thesis on Tolkien's portrayal of masculinity.

While Tolkien fandom is my One True Love, I also read fanfic in many other fandoms like HP, Swordspoint or Merlin; and every now and then I am tempted to write a story in smaller, literary fandoms, especially when Yuletide comes around. I'm an avid reader of fantasy novels, especially those that also feature m/m pairings like the books of Ellen Kushner, Fiona Patton, Judith Tarr, Jacqueline Carey, Lynn Flewelling etc.

I am apparently now a fan artist as well as a writer, which believe me, still comes as a shock to me. I use the 3D program Poser Pro 2010 and Photoshop to create digital art - again, so far mostly of Tolkien's elves.
