Retired Moderators and Mods on Hiatus

MPTT owes a huge debt of gratitude to several moderators who helped build and run the site but are currently unable to remain active. Their biographies from the front page of the site are below.

Pearl Took
Hi, I'm Pearl Took and I'm one of your Mods here at Many Paths to Tread. I have been a fan of LOTR since I was twelve years old back in 1966. I started writing fanfiction in 2002 and posted my first story in 2003. Since then I've written over 100 stories. Recently I have only been writing challenge stories for the LOTR Community Challenges.

Celeritas
I'm Celeritas! I started writing Tolkien fan fiction in 2004, but didn't join the fandom online for another four years. I primarily work with hobbits, in order to explore daily life in the Shire; and the Fourth Age, in order to explore the relationship between the present and an increasingly legendary past. It's a real privilege involving myself further in the fandom this way. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
