Welcome to Celandine, the Golden Flower
Here you will find Lord of the Rings Fan Fiction stories and art by me, Mirasaui. I have been an avid lover of Tolkien and Tolkien's Elves since I first opened and read "The Hobbit" somewhere around age ten. Soon after, I read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and the Silmarillion and became immersed in Tolkien's world. The fall of Gondolin, one of my favourite of Tolkien's tales, first introduced me to two of my muses, Glorfindel of the House of the Golden Flower and Ecthelion of the Fountain. They, together with Haldir, he that describes Lothlorien with such pride, took up residence in my house and would not leave me alone until I discovered fan fiction and tried my hand at writing my own. Glorfindel was the most insistent and it is to him that I dedicate this site.

Many of my stories are general fiction but I also write Slash, stories that romantically pair characters of the same sex. Each story has a header which identifies the type of story, its genre and rating (G thru PG-15) and gives a brief summary of what the story is about. So, if a story is not to your taste simply pass it by. Descriptions of the acronymns and rating codes I use may be found under this link: Rating Codes. Beware, while none of my stories are explicit in detail, some may not be suitable for younger children, so heed the warning notes. That said, I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I enjoyed writing them.

As many of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in June of 2004. My cancer was stage two, which meant it had progressed from the original site into the lymph nodes. Luckily, it had yet to invade surrounding tissue. I underwent a lumpectomy, 8 sessions of chemo infusions, 6 weeks of radiation and was put on Tamoxifen for 5 years.
As of my latest tests, I am cancer free - a survivor!
While I continued my interest in the LOTR fandom after my cancer treatment, there came time when I needed a break. During those 3 years, I stopped payment to my ISP and lost my domain name. I am happy to say, my website is back online with a new URL and I have taken up writing again.
I hope you enjoy the new site.

In November of 2014, I developed a slight pain in my right breast. It was fairly consistent, so I scheduled a visit with my cancer surgeon. She recommended a diagnostic mammogram and the results showed a small 1.5 cm lump. A biopsy confirmed that the lump was cancerous and this time the cancer was caught earlier than before, diagnosed as stage one. I had another lumpectomy and 6 weeks of radiation therapy. Both treatments were successful and I am once again cancer free. I cannot express the importance of breast self-examination and regularly scheduled mammograms. One out of eight women are diagnosed daily with breast cancer. Men also can get breast cancer. Caught early, the survival rate for both invasive and non-invasive (in situ, the type of cancer that I had) cancer is quite high. I ask that you consider clicking the link below to help fund mammograms and provide support for those in need. Itís free, and your click may help save a life.
