Biography:   Hi there, my name's Kaylee (well, most of the time) I'm in my 30s now, though I was nearly 23 when I joined here as a reader. I'm honored to be selected to add my stories here. I'll try not to overwhelm people by adding them all at once. I absolutely adore LotR, especially Galadriel and the rest of the Galadhrim, and the Valar I've also become quite attached to the Fourth Age inhabitants of Gondor and Arnor, and some Hobbits, especially those of the Quest and their descendants. I love the Valar - my favorite representation of them is in Fiondil's works, and I have emulated his writing with my own since his passing. He called me his daughter, and gave me permission to play in his world. I hope I am a worthy heir. My stories can be found (besides here) at Many Paths To Tread, Archive of Our Own, and the Silmarillion Writers' Guild. ~Kaylee Arafinwiel
