Biography:   After a years long break from writing fanfic I find myself writing again. The Professor's world is wonderful and rich and a great place to escape the realities of the world. I'm trying to get back into the habit of writing because it is really something that I love doing! I have been working in community theatre and writing baseball poetry. Another passion of mine.Tolkien and the film got me back to writing and for that I'm really grateful! Thank you Professor Tolkien. And thanks to all who read and enjoy my stories. Hope you have as much fun reading them as I have had writing them. MM
bullet Destiny's Child Last Updated: 11/22/2020
Éowyn is an endlessly fascinating character to me. This is her story, to my mind. This story will eventually merge with my story of Faramir, "Bound by Duty; Bound by Joy" where they meet. It is her story in that story arc. The first chapter was inspired by Lindelea asking about how Éowyn became a Shieldmaiden.
