I’m still here! I’m still reading! But I’ve fallen into the trap of rereading some older favorites because I’m just so in love with certain authors’ work in this fandom. So! Here is my attempt to pull myself out of that and focus on a wider variety of fics, though, still with the same centering on the Greenwood Elves because I need all the father and son fic and all the Elves Being Elves fic. Giiiiiiiive. *__*
