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.

Feature Vairë Was a Weaver, or, Real Men Wear Corsets (a farce) by Celeritas

Rated PG
[Reviews - 28]
Table of Contents

Arwen gets bored one day and sets in motion a chain of events that no one except the Author can entirely predict.  Diaphragms are squeezed, things catch on fire, and the whole City seems to go mad for a day, and yet somehow everything seems to end up slightly better off than it started.

Crackfic, inspired in part by Shakespearean farces, Terry Pratchett, and high school spirit weeks.
