Biography:

I've been a born-again Christian since childhood, and a Southern Baptist by denomination since I was in the 7th grade. Therefore, I am very careful to neither read nor write slash, and I'm also careful as to what elements I will include in a story. With that said, I have long enjoyed the fantasy stories in which people from our world visit other worlds (The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, etc.), but until recent years, I never expected to enjoy a fantasy novel that was set completely in another world. Then, in 2012, Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey came out in the theaters, and Wal-Mart began a massive campaign of advertising and selling Tolkien's works (The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings) and the Peter Jackson movies that are based on his works. It also sold a number of promotional items based on his works (posters, Legos, etc.). I decided that I would read Tolkien's novels and The Chronicles of Narnia side by side; it just seemed fitting that I should read them together. (Before I had my own copies of those books, I didn't realize just how fitting that would be!) I began to read them in January, 2013. Suffice it to say that reading The Lord of the Rings, in particular, converted me into a diehard Tolkien fan; I have since purchased and read other books by him, as well as a number of books about him, as well as books about C.S. Lewis. (I have read The Hobbit, or There and Back Again; The Annotated Hobbit; The Lord of the Rings; The Silmarillion; Unfinished Tales: The Lost Lore of Middle-earth; Beren and Luthien; the following books from The Histories of Middle-earth, Sauron Defeated and Morgoth's Ring; Bilbo's Last Song; The Tolkien Reader; The Atlas of Middle-Earth; The Inklings: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Their Friends; J.R.R. Tolkien: a Biography; and The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as some informational and devotional books about Tolkien's Middle-earth.) In addition, I've purchased and watched all of the movies based on The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, both the animated versions and the epic live-action versions produced and directed by Jackson, his theater editions and extended editions (as well as the animated and live-action movies of The Chronicles of Narnia series). And I have also since started writing my own Tolkien fanfiction based on The Lord of the Rings.


I have posted my Tolkien stories on this forum, in the hopes that others will enjoy reading them; if and when I have completed any more, I will post them here as well, if they're allowed here. My fanfiction stories are also posted on a few other Web sites. To access them, go to these URLs: Fanfiction.net, Archive of Our Own, Stories of Arda, and this Web page, courtesy of Webs.com: My Fiction, on which you will find a link to "Kathy's J.R.R. Tolkien Fanfiction Page". Some of them are also posted on LiveJournal.

Merry and Pippin's Visit by KathyG

In this pre-Quest gapfiller based on Mariole’s story, “Bad Step” (which can be found at http://www.west-of-the-moon.net/servlet/ReadGenStory?storyID=833 or http://mariole.livejournal.com/79822.html), Sam is confined to his room and ordered to stay off his feet on the day after he has been outside for the first time since his accident, and he’s feeling cross and out of sorts.  Merry and Pippin make an unexpected visit to Bag End to cheer him up and amuse him.  Thanks to Mariole for the idea as to the way in which Merry and Pippin attempt to amuse Sam, and to Dreamflower for beta-reading my story as well (including her assistance with the Gamgees’ rustic speech)!

Where's Frodo? by KathyG

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

 

How is it that, near the end of the prologue in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Frodo tells Bilbo that he’s going to go off and wait for Gandalf, and then, in the introduction to the extended version of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Bilbo thinks that Frodo is still somewhere in the smial?  This little movie-verse gapfiller explains how that could have possibly happened.

 

Disclaimer: Bilbo, Frodo, and the other hobbits are not my creation, but J.R.R. Tolkien’s.  And the scenes I have sought to explain in my story are not mine, but Peter Jackson’s and New Line Cinema’s.
