It had taken many such nights for this piece to take shape. The builder had first selected only the finest wood, settling upon lebethron for this most precious gift. As he worked over many days, fashioning boards and pegs, carving detail into the wood, he hummed and sang blessings over it. Tears fell frequently upon the artwork, staining it lightly with moisture and adding character to the detailed figures. Still he toiled on, day after day, bringing the delicate, yet sturdy article to life. Memories in Wood by Nieriel Raina
Welcome to Naice a Nilme, a fanfiction archive for stories centering around Aragorn and Legolas. If you are a fan of the elf and the ranger - or at least one of them -, you have come to right place! If you have written stories about them, we would be honoured to host them! And if you're a reader, welcome to as well! Sit down, browse and enjoy!
Naice a Nilme is a gen archive with ratings going up as far as M - that means no explicit adult content. Please check our house rules for more info on what this archive is and is not.
This website is a companion to the yahoo list "Owners of Aragorn's Angst". If you love Aragorn, like to discuss his character and want to read/post fanfiction that evolves around him, feel free to join us!

Rhapsody and I are working to restore the contact links on the site.
Rhapsody and I, Linda Hoyland, have taken over the everyday running of N&N. Michelle kindly continues to pay for the site hosting.
We both care very much about this archive and are anxious to see it flourish and thrive. For that to happen, we need you to post your gen fic stories featuring Aragorn and/or Legolas.
We wish to maintain the archive in the same spirit, which readers and writers know and love, but we are making some minor changes. Any story eligible for Teitho will also be eligible for N&N, so although Aragorn and Legolas must feature in the story somewhere, they do not have to been main characters, so a story about say, Arathorn and Gilraen’s courtship, a young Faramir longing for the return of the king,or how the people of Gondor react to Legolas’ Eleven colony would be welcome.
We would especially love to see all the Teitho stories posted on N&N.
The stories no longer have to be angst, so humour, friendship, and mild het romance are very welcome. We also welcome...
I've finally managed to update the banners for the 2011 Review Pyramid. So everyone who managed to balance their reviews last year, should find a pretty banner in their profile!
And don't forget, there's a new chance every year! Maybe 2012 will be the year when you left a review for every story you read on the archive:)
Last weekend, it a bout of bout fannish enthusiasm, Mirach and I founded a deviantART group for artwort inspired by fanfiction, aptly named Arda Inspired. The idea is to have fanfiction inspire artwort (and in the long run: vice versa). From now on, stories included in NAN's story of the month poll, will be featured on Arda Inspired in the hopes that artists will come up with illustrations for their favourite story.
I'm still trying to decide on the best way to feature artwork on NAN, but there will definitely be *something* pretty to see here. So, stay tuned!
And if you're already a member of dA, friend us, watch us, participate!
It's December! That means, the end of the year is fast approaching and with it the third installment of the Review Pyramid. The Pyramid is NAN's little game to invite more reviews by encouraging authors to leave as many reviews as they get. If you want to know more, visit the page. You can see your balance in your account info. If you find you're in the minus, don't worry. One month is a lot of time to leave some reviews for your favourite stories and authors!
Authors who manage to have their reviews balanced by the end of the year will again receive a pretty little banner!
I won't be online for the next two weeks, which means any questions and problems are on hold. So are stories that need to be validated. If you're posting stories and they're not showing up, then they're held up in moderation. Don't worry, I'll get to them eventually!
For a while now, IE9 users had problems using the site. I could finally track down the culprit - TinyMCE, the text editor NAN uses. I upgraded to the latest version and that seems to help, but not in all cases. If you use IE9 and you experience problems, please check the FAQ for a workaround.
