Hi! I'm Uruviel, aka Heather, aka ShanFan (as in Shannon Miller fan). I'm 22 years old, from Memphis, TN, USA. I have been a gymnast for 10 years and I'm currently in level 9 (2 levels below Olympic level). I also coach gymnastics. Gymnastics has been an obsession of mine since I saw the 1992 Olympics. :-) I used to figure skate, on a synchronized skating team until our rink closed. :-(
My mom was always a HUGE LOTR fan but for some reason I was never interested in it and didn't read the books until I saw FOTR, December 01. Now (obviously :-) I absolutely LOVE it!! If you can't tell from this site, LOL, my fav characters are Legolas, all the other Elves (esp. Fereveldir :-), and Frodo.
The picture at the top of the page is one of my gymnastics pics and the other is my Elven Halloween costume (I was Finduilas). I don't have any other current pics of me scanned so that's why I used that one (and yes, that's my real hair).
*Update* Here's a current pic of me, with my Hollywood Video t-shirt. :-) My hair is really not as red as it looks here! :-)
