The Grey Havens - Originally posted as part of a discussion on rosiecotton; discussing various things including the cyclical nature of the book canon; the adjustments made to the end (and indeed, to all) of the LOTR films (and the reasoning behind that), and the relationship(s) between Frodo, Rosie, Sam and Elanor (and their roles). Apologies for the casual nature of this piece and it's poor grammar - it's been pulled directly from where it was originally posted.

Pretty Good Year - Analysing the success of Mary Borsellino's epic fanfic, Pretty Good Year, and being generally worshipful of it.

The Whys of Fanfiction - An extended rant exploring the reasons behind why people read fanfiction and why people write fiction and a complaint about those who don't seem to comprehend.

Claiming the One Ring - Another 'rant' about issues I felt were important in light of the fics being produced for the One Ring challenge.
