Many Paths to Tread Top Commenter


 


Hello everyone!  I'm Traveller (that's with two L's, the way Tolkien intended it!); you may also call me Ashley.  I'm a high school student from coastal North Carolina.


My fanfiction realm-of-choice is Hobbits.  My favorite character is Pippin, followed closely by his dearest friend Merry.  I love to dwell on the relationships between the Hobbits, whether it be those spoken of in the books, aluded to in the Appendices, or those of my own creation (I have quite a few and am always making more!).   My stories are a combination of book and movie verse, and often have a slightly AU gist to them.  Never fear, though- I always explain my AU before I post.  I never take canon and throw it haphazardly out the window.  Promise.


I write lots of angsty h/c, generally directed at Pippin.  Truly, it is because I love him.  I also play around with humor somewhat, and can never resist the temptation to do the occasional bit of fluff.  I'm really endulging myself when I write poetry!


Other than extending the boundries of the most fantastic story ever created, my hobbies include horseback riding (English hunter style!), model horse collecting and showing, and watching a few television shows to which I am intensely loyal (FlashForward, anyone?).  A vast portion of my time is taken up by my schoolwork, but being at school means being near my friends, so it's all good!  Anyhow, enough about me- check out my documentations of the really interesting lives of some of my friends: namely Frodo, Sam, Merry, and Pippin!
