“I don’t know why they always worry so much,” Estel answered. “Are they as bad with you as they are with me?” “I would say so,” Legolas replied, remembering all the times he had been followed after, fretted over or nursed to health by various mother hens. “I believe I’ve never had a moment’s peace whenever I’ve been injured.” “I know how that is,” Estel said sympathetically. “I think it is quite unfair. After all, it is not as if any of us would be looking for trouble or something.” Dawn of Friendship by Silivren Tinu
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!
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.
Naice a Nilme's slogan has always been Aragorn and Legolas Angst, but since the site hasn't been only about angst anymore for quite sometime now, we really need something new to describe the archive. During the last weeks, the members of Aragorn Angst have been brainstorming ideas and you can see the results in the poll to the left. All members of Naice a Nilme - whether old or new, whether author or lurker - are invited to vote for their favourite slogan. Which would you like to see represent the site? Please log in and leave your vote, I'll leave the poll open till August 20th.
Entries for the Podquest Contest are closed now. The challenge page has been updated with the participants and their podfic. We have four readers: Amarok, Mysterious Jedi, N Forest and Tanis. Be sure to check out their profile and download their podfic to your favourite device - computer, iPod, hifi system!
And if you've listened to them, please take part in the poll, because this will determine who wins the Members's Choice prize! The poll will stay up till March 13th, which should give you ample chance to listen...
