    Summary

    "...[Fëanor] died; but he had neither burial nor tomb, for so fiery was his spirit that as it sped his body fell to ash, and was borne away like smoke; and his likeness has never again appeared in Arda, neither has his spirit left the halls of Mandos."

    What if his spirit has never left the halls of Mandos because it never went there in the first place?
    Fëanor, dead, watches the First Age unfold and from time to time, joins in. [Thanks to pp for beta reading.]

    Summary

    If you're desperate enough, even your father's dark ghost looks like hope. After the attack on the Havens of Sirion, Beleriand has fallen under the hand of the Enemy. Maedhros and his people have taken refuge in the woods of the Taur-im-Duinath.

    Set during the seven year period between the attack on the Havens and the arrival of the Host of Valinor. This fits into the story told in Quenta Narquelion, but I hope it also stands alone.

    Summary

    Celebrimbor and Narvi meet, plan a city and build a life together.

    Written for Tolkien Secret Santa 2017, for Rogercat, who wanted a sweet moment between Celebrimbor & a female Narvi and ended up with four moments and a rather longer story than intended - sorry! :-) [thanks to Raiyana for beta-reading.]

    Summary

    Curufin, in the Halls of Mandos, writes of regrets he does and doesn't have.

     

    Five pages of regrets, written in a language no-one knows. I’ll parcel them up and give them to the Maiar of Mandos. Who knows? Perhaps I will have bought a little of my father’s time, which like his Silmarils is stolen from him and held by others who have no right to claim it.

    Summary

    Celebrimbor returns from the Halls of Mandos, to be greeted by Finrod, Galadriel, Elrond, Celebrían and Orodreth, and travels to Tol Eressëa to meet Maglor, Frodo and Bilbo. And then a long-awaited ship arrives.

    When he first saw it hanging there, the blood was still red. Months later, when they had been driven into the North and had been under siege for a while, it had been black and stinking, the body disintegrating, held together with chains. A strong hand shook his arm, and he blinked again, and came out of the memory that had swept over him.

    “You worry too much, Elrond,” Celebrimbor said, looking up at him, serious-faced. “I got better!”

    Summary

    A few letters sent between Fingon & Maedhros immediately after Maedhros went East with his brothers to Himring.

    It is not entirely clear what the relationship was between Maedhros and Fingon during this period. There appear to be a number of things in these documents that are understood, but not spelled out.

    Summary

    Maglor meets Nimloth of Doriath, and is surprised. Elrond and Bilbo go to Valimar, and meet Ingwion, leader of the Vanyar Host from the War of Wrath, Indis and Melian. Elrond gets rather cross and channels his inner Maia. Bilbo is sensible. And Eönwë, Herald of the Valar, brings news.

    “He gives you a good death, I’ll give him that, your brother Celegorm,” Nimloth said, to Maglor’s considerable surprise. “I’m afraid the people that I killed didn’t get such an expert send-off. But then, I had less practice in that line of work. His was painless, a very tidy job. I hope your standards are as high.”

    Summary

    In which Maglor, returned to Tol Eressëa with Elrond and Frodo, meets two heroes of Gondolin, recalls Elrond's thoughts on the Downfall of Númenor, injures Fingon and loses a horse-race (barely).

    "It really is very odd, for hobbits, to be living surrounded by all these great heroes who died so long ago, and have returned from death. I still haven’t quite got used to it.”

    “I find it odd, too,” Maglor said. “Or at least, it seems odd to see Egalmoth. The last time I saw him was at the Havens of Sirion, where I killed him.”

    Summary

    Nerdanel and Lalwen in Tol Eressëa at the start of the Fourth Age, discussing kinslaying, family, art and history, are joined by Galadriel who has recently returned from Middle-earth after the Ban of the Valar that prevented her from returning was finally lifted. They eat cake and discuss Gil-galad's parentage. Later, Nerdanel makes a decision.

     

    “I am sure this is the reason that they called her Nerdanel the Wise,” Galadriel said to Lalwen. “It took me ages of the world to realise that being a queen would be a fearful nuisance.”

    Summary

    Maglor, returned to Aman with Elrond, makes new songs, gets drunk with Fingon and his aunt Lalwen, and runs into trouble with the Oath of Fëanor.

    “See? I told you he was good at kinging,” Maglor declared, from the ground. “Of all the many Noldor Kings, you are my favourite, Fingon. Don’t tell anyone!”

    Fingon shook his head in mock despair. “I too am drunk, but obviously the House of Fëanor has to do it better.”

     

    In terms of timing, this story follows on directly from Mereth Aderthad : Once More: With Feeling. I hope it makes sense without it though.
