    Summary

    Tales and rumours arose along the shores of the sea concerning mariners and men forlorn upon the water who, by some fate or grace or favour of the Valar, had entered in upon the Straight Way and seen the face of the world sink below them, and so had come to the lamplit quays of Avallónë, or verily to the last beaches on the margin of Aman, and there had looked upon the White Mountain, dreadful and beautiful, before they died. --- J.R.R.Tolkien, The Silmarillion

    Summary

    Námo has a lot to put up with, but none the less manages some long-overdue character development. Celebrimbor is starting to get over the manner of his death. And Fëanor is (as so often) annoyed, but manages not to let it get to him.

    Summary

    Miriel and a book.

    The title alludes to Tolkien's defence of escapism. It does not imply Miriel survives. But neither is her drowning described, so I chose not to use archive warnings.

    Summary

    "'Death is a curse'. The words were inscribed over the dark mouth of the crypt. Inzilân accepted the lantern her attendant offered her, light flickering within glazed, frosty green glass that cast a pallid illumination over the shadowed cemetery and the thicker dark of the antechamber of the crypt. Inzilân stared into the dark, a cold touch settling on her bones. She disliked this part of her duties, disliked roaming the halls of the dead. She straightened, glad that her back was turned to the procession; it would not have done for them to see her hesitation.

    "Back straight, Inzilân entered the crypt."

    Summary

    History will speak of the march of Ar-Pharazôn, and how quickly he crossed the distance between Umbar and Mordor to cow the Dark Lord beneath his hand.

    It will not mention how many days Sauron ignored them and made them sit outside the Black Gates before paying them any heed at all.

    (( the akallabeth, of sorts. arc 1: belief., or, as i like to call it, back on my worldbuilding bullshit. focuses a lot on expanding on mordor, the nazgul, southrons, and umbarians in a reliably neutral manner, because that's just what i like to do. lots of OCs, culture-theorying, amateur conlang (im' so sorry tolkien), Song/magic/sorcery theory, and inconsistent weather patterns because i keep forgetting what mordor's climate is like.

    not a hard, raunchy seduction of ar-pharazon, but a... ruthlessly gentle and clever one.

    a rewrite of the original version posted in 2014, of the same name. ))

    Summary

    Almáriel had heard tales of the Exile, of course; there wasn’t a child of the Andustar (born in the east though they might have been or not been) who hadn’t. She'd not thought there would come a day when she was living in exile herself.

    Summary

    For even after the ruin the hearts of the Dúnedain were still set westwards; and though they knew indeed that the world was changed, they said: 'Avallónë is vanished from the Earth and the Land of Aman is taken away, and in the world of this present darkness they cannot be found. Yet once they were, and therefore they still are, in true being and in the whole shape of the world as at first it was devised.'
