Thread: Favourite age and characters..
This morning I was browsing through some challenges at a different LOTR fan fiction archive. I noticed how I avoided everything involving Legolas and hobbits and how my attention got drawn to Feanorians, Nśmenoreans, Edain, everything related to Second Age and so on.
I seemed to have my favourites in writing besides my original fictional characters (OFC's) and I was wondering. How about my fellow writers? Do you feel drawn to a certain character or time period? Can you tell why?
For now my Muse has his attention fixed on Maglor and Isildur. I can reason a bit why because Maglor is my favourite elf and Isildur is/was a proud leader of the Dśnedain. As for Time period, I do like Second Age the best. The war of Wrath has ended and new cultures are arising. Cultures that form the base of the ones we see in LOTR & the Hobbit.
So let me know! I am curious!
As for characters... I find I also gravitate toward elves more so than any other, in particular Legolas and Orophin. I do write Men as well. Ummm, I guess I could say I write within the realm of elves and men. LOL!
I hope this made sense... I'm half dead and about to go pass out for a few hours... ;-)

Generally I tend to centre the story around a recognised character, but on a few occasions the starring role has gone to an original.
I'm more drawn towards the Elves and men, but mostly Elves, because I guess they're so appealing, and so different, and graceful, and their cultures the most developed.
I tend to like oringinal character fics more than others, and most of the fics I read and write about ME tend to be girl is dropped into ME (Which is about to change, ideas in the works). I think it's probably becuase I want to be in ME so bad (Not to the point of obsession, I just fantasize about it) that I want to read about it and write about it, so I can be there in thought if not body.
Enough of my drabble. :P You've all probably gotten bored stiff reading my post.
