I discovered fanfiction in 95, slash in 98, and have been writing LotR slash since 2003 - my favourite pairing is Glorfindel/Legolas, but I love most elf slash. My longest story, a universe I have been working on since entering this fandom in 2003, deals with controversial themes like non-con, mpreg and bdsm. Apart from fanfiction, I am very interested in all of Tolkien's works, from his non-Middle-earth stories to his academic writing, and wrote my MA thesis on Tolkien's portrayal of masculinity.
While Tolkien fandom is my One True Love, I also read fanfic in many other fandoms like HP, Swordspoint or Merlin; and every now and then I am tempted to write a story in smaller, literary fandoms, especially when Yuletide comes around. I'm an avid reader of fantasy novels, especially those that also feature m/m pairings like the books of Ellen Kushner, Fiona Patton, Judith Tarr, Jacqueline Carey, Lynn Flewelling etc.
I am apparently now a fan artist as well as a writer, which believe me, still comes as a shock to me. I use the 3D program Poser Pro 2010 and Photoshop to create digital art - again, so far mostly of Tolkien's elves.
There is no need to ask if you can friend me, please feel free to! All my stories and fandom-related entries are unlocked. I do not automatically friend back as my friendslist is already rather huge and unwieldy, though if we share the same fandoms/interests I will probably do so.
You can find my stories at my website Loes Valthen (Golden Tresses), there you will also find fanart to go with my fics and scanned doujinshi (fan comics) featuring Tolkien's characters.
