||I am a fifty something male Tolkien fan who's lived in Middle-earth part time for over thirty years (I can even show you my bedroom window in Imladris, thanks to the movies!). Besides writing Tolkien fanfic I like to dabble in Tolkienian linguistics and enjoy writing in and translating the Elvish languages. I also like to embroider and have even done an embroidered map of Middle-earth.
