From the very moment I first watched The Lord of the Rings movies, I was completely hooked, and quickly proceeded to devour the books. My favorite thing to do as a writer is to delve into relationships between characters, and I feel that the hobbits provide a perfect canvas for that. I don't know what it is about them that I find so intriguing, but they always seem to find themselves in some sort of adventure! (Especially my favorite- Pippin!)

Recently, my friend Ar-feiniel (aka Fei) and I began a round robin entitled "Guards of Himring vs. Killer Tooks". She says I looked at her Maedhros the wrong way, so I sent my army of Killer Tooks (and a few friends...) after her and her Guards of Himring. Please check out the continually unfolding drama at Ar-feiniel's page, and feel free to leave reviews- we love them! It's my first attempt at random humor, as I'm generally an angst/drama writer, so I hope you enjoy it as well as my other stories!

Frodo by Traveller Rated: G [Reviews - 0]
Summary: A humorous rewrite of the song "Joey" by Sugarland. This was inspired by the scene from The Fellowship of the Ring movie where Boromir has just tried to take the Ring from Frodo. Frodo kicks him and runs away, and Boromir falls down. As Frodo puts the Ring on, the scene changes into the Eye of Sauron. In the background, you can still hear Boromir yelling, "Frodo, I'm sorry!" The lyrics of "Joey" instantly came to mind when I finally figured out what Boromir was saying. I just had to parody it!
