Laikwalss

Story Favorites    Author Favorites    Links
Biography:   Im a 45 year old female Tolkien-fan from Germany. English is therefore not my first language. Nonetheless I absolutely love to read and write in English and Im trying hard to get better. In real life Im a chemist at a laboratory for environmental analysis, but I enjoy fleeing from reality into Tolkiens wonderful universe when I am able. My stories are all centered on elves. My favourite character is Elrond. Just in case you do not know: Laikwalss is the primitive elvish form of Legolas, meaning exactly the same: green leaf. This site is just wonderful. All of you please keep going. Lai.
