Biography:

Persnickety young woman who takes canon a little too seriously, enjoys flaunting The Establishment if she can make a good case that said flaunting is still faithful to Tolkien, and maintains in the face of all opposition that Frodo should have brown eyes.


Practicing Lutheran from the American Midwest.  Oh, and she's a mod now, too.
