Top Commenter


Hello! I'm Dreamflower, and I have been a Lord of the Rings fan since 1967, when I was 15 years old. I have read the books countless times over the years, but I did not begin writing fanfic until 2004.  I've written many stories, nearly all of them hobbit-centric; in addition I am a co-mod of the LOTR_GFIC community and of this archive. In my personal life, I've been married since 1976 (I met my husband through our mutual interest in LotR), and have one son, who is "grown and flown".  LOTR and fanfic are my main hobby, but I have several other hobbies as well: calligraphy, cooking, needlework of all kinds, sewing, decorative painting and polymer clay are all other creative outlets for me.
