THE PURPLE BOOK OF ITHILIANA

Updated: May 2007

This page has links which lead to a number of fics, mostly completed ones. With the new tagging program (OK not so new now!), I've stopped updating the link page and will be shifting to tags in my copious spare time.

WARNINGS:
FPS Interspecies & Manslash, Dark Fics
RPS Bondage/Domination/Submission
Adult content in both genres
Dark Fics
Not intended for anyone under legal age of adulthood.

Standing Offer

I write long multi-part fics mostly, all linked below, but
I am also quite happy to send a current Word file to anyone who
would like to read in that format, especially those coming in after
say, oh, part 69 ;> Just email me at
ithiliana13 AT yahoo DOT com if you wish an e-copy!


The Lord of the Rings FPS AU

Most of my FPS is AU because I have two obsessions: Boromir must live. Frodo and Faramir must be together. So these fics tend to have happier endings than Tolkien's work. These fics draw on both bookverse and movieverse (blend, add water, and stir).


The Lord of the Rings FPS Dark or Dark Themes AU

Recently, I have become interested in dark elements in Tolkien's universe. These stories which are still FPS and AU are therefore different than my other AU fics because someone takes the Ring. So far, I've written Boromir and Aragorn. There is a planned Faramir in the future. These stories have either tragic or ambiguous endings. They also draw on both bookverse and movieverse.

The Lord of the Rings RPS Behind the Scenes

Since I write RPS, I obviously don't consider it illegal (well no more than FPS snicker) OR immoral OR an invasion of "real" people's privacy. "My thoughts on RPS as Role Playing Slash can be read here.

Started out David/Elijah, mostly PG-13, then mutated to David/Viggo/Sean, with some Andy thrown in. At that point, NC-17 is the rule, with major Bondage & Dom/Sub elements. Also very very long. And looks to be neverending. Started in Wellington during filming, then David and Sean and Viggo started having vacations (England and Idaho). Then they went back to Wellington for a premier. Which so far they haven't gotten to see. *So* not my fault. I blame Sean.

not a cross-post! Link to article on LJ's future plans

Gacked from Half_elf_Lost:


A detailed and very balanced article on LJ's future plans--it links to an article on strikethrough for example!.
But here's the kicker:

LiveJournal's leadership has made it clear that their future American business strategy lies in generating new traffic rather than catering to the service's current small-but-loyal membership. The challenge for Petrochenko and other executives at LiveJournal will be redefining the brand's identity in a crowded media marketplace.


I was surprised to see how big LJ is in Singapore!
