Joined:March 6, 2005
Tolkien fan since the first wave of fandom in the mid 1960s; at 12 started writing fanfic (although it wasn't called so then). In those days I had a wall poster saying "Come to Middle Earth." Still visiting--and writing again, after a hiatus of 35 years. I write mostly about Aragorn (book version). Please review!
