Biography:   I'm an university student from Slovakia. There are many things that I like to do: reading, fencing, wandering in the mountains, climbing trees, drinking from wells, swimming in the lakes... simply being on the world. My stories feature mostly my favourite character. Aragorn, of course :) Long live the King!

bullet In the Mind's Eye by shirebound Last Updated: 5/6/2012
The Morgul knife blade used at Weathertop to wound Frodo was enspelled by the Nazgûl, as was the hilt that Aragorn carried with him to Rivendell. At the Ford of Bruinen, the wraith-sorcerer has one chance to activate the spell woven into the hilt, and influence its bearer. Aragorn h/c, somewhat AU, very hobbity (of course!). Characters include Glorfindel, Elrond, Gandalf, Arwen.

bullet Fences and Dreams by Larner Last Updated: 7/4/2011
As the King considers means by which Arnor might be rid of the wights that haunt Tyrn Gorthad, he finds advice from Tom Bombadil and aid from unexpected sources. Perhaps not banishment, but.... My Independence Day offering for 2011.

bullet The Ranger and the Eagles by Cairistiona Last Updated: 2/7/2011
The hunt for Gollum has passed its first summer, but will it survive its first winter? A tale for Lily Baggins, who wanted a simple hurt-comfort drabble between Aragorn and Gandalf... but a drabble just wouldn't do!

bullet Starship by shirebound Last Updated: 12/4/2010
Like Frodo and Bilbo, Sam is honored as he travels to the Grey Havens... but by some unexpected folk. And like Frodo and Bilbo, Sam sails West... but in an unexpected way. An AU (but canon-possible) look at how the Last of the Ring-bearers might have left Middle-earth. A gentle tale, including quite a few special guests. EPILOGUE: Legolas and Gimli arrive in the West

bullet The Ranger and the Hobbit by Cairistiona Last Updated: 11/28/2009
An AU-ish tale that’s less AU than it is “what if”: what if, as the Dúnedain patrol the region around the Shire, Aragorn has an encounter with an intrepid, resourceful hobbit, one with the same mettle as Bilbo and a similar yen for adventure? And what if Aragorn also has an encounter with some men with less friendly intentions? Tookishness and Rangerliness both abound in this tale of a quiet patrol turned disastrous. 2010 MEFA nominee.

It is October, T.A. 3000, and the Dúnedain continue to dwindle, a scattered remnant held together by hope in their Chieftain. But what happens when the Chieftain’s own hope starts to falter? An exploration of tragedy, grief, injury and illness and its effects on "the most hardy of living Men". Complete. 1st Place winner, 2009 MEFA. Rated for violence, angst, and OC character death.

bullet Beating Down the Pain by Rhyselle Last Updated: 3/19/2009
Written for the B2MeM Prompt 17: "breaking stereotypes". 22-year-old Aragorn learns that the Dunedain are far more than just the grim and stern lords he came to know when they visited Imladris, and that his foster-brothers hadn't told him everything about themselves either.

bullet Healing Time by Gwynnyd Last Updated: 6/16/2008
Lissa asked me to write a followup to Fell Memories for her birthday "drabble" - she gets a series of 12 to mirror the other story. The story so far: Aragorn, on his way out of Gondor after the Corsair raid, was captured by Nazgul and casually tortured as he was being brought to Dol Guldur. He did not reveal who he was, even though hard pressed. He escaped in a way that, I hope, was reasonable and not superhuman. He sw

bullet Parting Gifts by Fiondil Last Updated: 10/21/2007
Two friends say good-bye, but not before imparting gifts to one another. This is not quite a sequel to "Somewhere I Have Never Traveled" but follows from it. Character death. A birthday fic for Nina.

bullet All About Names by Still Anonymous Last Updated: 7/14/2007
When Melkor and Sauron next meet after their humilation at the hands [or paws] of Luthien, Beren, and Huan, they discuss how best to restore their damaged reputations. Humor. Very definitely humor.

bullet Fell Memories by Gwynnyd Last Updated: 10/13/2006
Though Aragorn left Gondor in the triumph of the Corsair defeat saying he planned to spend his time working against the enemy, he arrived at Lothlorien less than three months later 'on his way to Rivendell' and 'weary'. Would such a short time in the Wild 'weary' the intrepid Ranger, or did something much more drastic occur during the 'perils on the dark confines of Mordor"?

Rated adult for violence.

A series of twelve drabbles. With many thanks to my beta readers Oshun, Pe
