Ahahahah! Tolkien fandom trope bingo cards! My personal favourite was “Eligible Bachelor Baggins,” which we’ll be seeing a LOT of starting in December.

It’s about the 10th "fanniversary" of the Ansereg site. Ten years of sharing stories and ideas, fielding odd questions on sexuality in Tolkien, and being corrected on the % of Maia that Elladan and Elrohir have in their ancestry. I glued elf ears on my head, got kidnapped by an orc at the Return of the King premiere in Wellington in 2003, gave a talk at Tolkien 2005, and met fantastic people from around the world, both in NZ and overseas. -wipes away sentimental tear-

Moving to Wellington, NZ's Middle-Earth central, had an odd effect on my fandom output: I haven't written any fanfiction since 2007. Since then, I wrote an original novel that failed to find a publisher, there was a fiction blog for a while, and now, a style/femininity blog. But my fandom quiescence has earlier roots than that. When I finished the story Magweth Pengolodh: The Question of Pengolod, I felt, on a very deep level, that my Tolkien muses were satisfied...

The Tolkien fandom has blessed me with too many BFFs to count around the world. Some of them are still on LJ, or still in the fandom; others, not so much. Some of them I've heard from this week in private correspondence. All of them literate, fascinating, fabulous people. You are what have made it so much fun for so long. Thank you for all the friendship and feedback. Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo, y'all.
