I've been writing fan fiction in Tolkien's world since 2004, slowly but persistently. I'm not prolific, but I certainly have some stories to move to MPTT.
I first read "The Hobbit" and "Lord of the Rings" in 1968, at the age of 22. By the time the Jackson films were released, I'd read LOTR, the Hobbit, and the Silmarillion multiple times. Since then I've added "Unfinished Tales,"
"Letters," and "Children of Hurin" to my repertoire of writings by the Professor himself.
And that doesn't count all the wonderful fan fiction I've read over the years since the LOTR films debuted! Did I mention that I've been a regular reviewer for the Middle Earth Fan Fiction Awards (MEFAs) for the past few years?
I originally started writing fan fiction as an attempt to fill in a gap in the Jackson films with stories from canon LOTR. The result is a slightly AU perspective that I've been known to call, with tongue and cheek, the "Steffverse."
I very occasionally read slash, tragedy, hurt/comfort, and character death fics.
But for myself, I typically write comedy, mystery, romance (het), and adventure.
In real life I was a technical writer, now semi-retired.
