Biography:   I've been writing, original fiction and fanfic for the last 40 years - yes, I'm actually *that* old! - in three different languages, of which English is only my third. So, the sometimes creative grammar is not a result of the lack of trying. :)) I first encountered Tolkien's universe back in the early 1970s, when I read The Hobbit. LOTR reached our country (that would be Hungary) only years later. I fell in love at first sight and haven't stopped loving the Ardaverse ever since. My all-time favourite character has always been the Elvenking of Mirkwood (also known as Thranduil, Legolas' father) but many of the others have grown on me since then. While the greater part of my work can't be posted here because of the rules, I hope that you will find the one or other story to your liking. I write across all Ages and all races of Middle-earth, so the offer is quite varied. Be my guest in my little corner of the Ardaverse and have a pleasant stay.
bullet If You Wish Upon a Dwobbit Last Updated: 4/20/2014
As mentioned in “The Book of Mazarbul”, Bifur and Óin had always been close. So, why did they never court? Possibly because Bifur’s interest was elsewhere? Don’t let the title mislead you. This is a non-slash, one hundred per cent canon, bookverse story. Well, 99 per cent canon anyway, seeing that Bifur is a bit different here. *g* Features Thorin's entire company - and more.
