December 2008 Update
The entire page has been revamped. Everything's been moved into new organization, new material has been added, some old material has been removed. This is still basically a place for me to showcase my work and creativity, and also a place for me to practice and try new things in HTML. Take a look around and enjoy yourself. ^_^
Navigating the New Layout...
The Fanfiction icon will bring you to an archive of my fanbased stories in such worlds as Naruto, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, and more.
The Original Fiction icon will bring you to an archive of my original works, both stories and poetry.
The Graphics & Arts icon will take you to an archive of my art, including sketches and colored pictures, and livejournal icons or avatars.
The Writing Tools icon brings you to a list of tools and links I have found useful in writing my stories.
The Guestbook icon will take you to a page where you can tell me what you think of the website or its contents. I'd love to hear if there's something in particular that you like!
I go by many names. My account on fanfiction.net calls me "Orodruin", my handle on the net is usually "winterstrife", and my preferred penname is "R. Winters."
As for my likes... I like a lot of things. I'm interested in Japanese culture and manga and anime; I like the game Go, the X-Wings book series, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, and my puppy, Kova. There isn't much I dislike, but there are some things. I don't like it when my hands are cold, even though they usually are, I don't like steak, and I hate cruelty towards anyone.
My hobbies include karate, reading, writing, playing video games, learning Japanese, and training. My dream is to get a job with the FBI... I'd also like to get married and have two kids while I'm dreaming.
