Welcome to Larrkin's Nest! Most of my stories link up in a loosely chronological order, first following the storyline of the Fellowship on the Quest, then moving to the future setting of Minas Tirith during the days before, then after the Final Battle. Some stand alone tales even travel back through characters' memories to pre-Fellowship days. So the stories appear in groups that build on one another, and they are under constant, random revision. Please do check back from time to time for any new and improved versions.

A few warnings: my stories feature several significant alterations from Tolkien and film canon: Boromir survives the attack at Amon Hen, and M/M spanking exists in this AU as a widely accepted practice. Please see my For New Readers page for more information and a brief description of this Middle Earth AU where loving discipline is commonplace. I also include romantic, not graphic, slash.

I love hearing from my readers, so don't be shy about dropping me an email. And please feel free to click the link below and check out my dear friend Kat's wonderful stories about Boromir as a child in Minas Tirith and 'Thorongil' (Aragorn,) his temporary guardian. Kat's Cradle.

Please visit me on Live Journal, where I'll be posting updates and info about the newest rewrites and WIP.

Namarie! Larrk
