Arwen is an elven maid born on the Ides of March (Noldo as all hell); a poet and a budding Tolkien scholar, wishing forever for mélamar. She tries to be elegant and graceful but is mostly failing there. She is a witch, a Dao cultivator, a trauma survivor, and a pain in the backside — though she really doesn’t mean to be. She has no idea what she wants out of the future; she’s actually not even sure it exists. She has a lifelong passion for everything Middle-earth, a long-lived preoccupation with Heian Japan and traditional Japanese aesthetics, and will try her hand at almost all handicrafts under the sun, no matter how bad she is at them.

In short: she is happiest with inkstained fingers, beautiful music in her ears, a sweet milky coffee close at hand, and a head full of dreams. She is also very tired, over the whole talking in third person thing, and would still like another coffee, please.
