Bio:
Hello. I am soon to be 45 years old. I am a woman, I have a bachelor's degree from a state university. I served in the USARMY from 2003 to 2008. I am married, have no children, and have been working on these stories since I was stationed in Okinawa around 2006. It's hard to believe it's almost been ten years.


A lot has happened in those years. As I said, I served my time in the Army, came home somewhat damaged, and married in 2009. My stepfather passed away in 2013 and my mother this past February. They were my reviewers, my copy editors, and my biggest fans and I feel lost without them.


I expect writing about my mother in Middle Earth at the end of book three will be rather emotional for me now. Perhaps it will make the tale more authentic, somehow.


I apologize for the long hiatus and appreciate the reviews which continue to inspire me.


I SHALL RETURN!

Thank you for reading.

Summary: A little ficlet I thought of while reading jules14's MST series. I wondered what would happen if a real teenage girl showed up on the edge of Mirkwood with all the worst traits of the animal.

Rated "R" for language and adult situations.

I did add this as a response to BookLuva7's "MAJOR Mary Sue" challenge, however it doesn't really qualify because the only member of the Fellowship who meets her is Legolas and Elrond is only mentioned. Should I delete it from the Challenge?

Orlando's Muse by Elaura Rated: G [Reviews - 4]
Summary: A one-shot that came to mind while I was waiting for my muse to return. I am fairly ignorant of modern British slang; if you find errors, just be glad I didn't call the girls "birds".
