    Summary

    Gondolin was founded in total secrecy, in the glorious valley of Tumladen. No place was ever a greater source of joy for the elven people, no city was home to so many exceptional beings. Even today, as the Third Age dies, their names echo by the crackling fires of the camps and the soaring melody of the lyre. The story I am about to tell you will undoubtedly differ from the one you have heard. The goodness, the feats of arms, the infinite horror of treachery and death, all this is true. But there was more than that. There was love, strength, power. There was an elf who defied the Valar, her king and fate, who was the glory of her time. Come, friends, come, the night is still young. Let me count the rise of Lady Bruithien from the House of the Reed.

    Summary

    A light. A flame. A blade. And a starlit, blue-eyed lover.

    Premonitions all forgotten to time for Aínwar Firekeeper, who alone has spent centuries in the waste guarding dragonkind and one's sacrifice for Arda. But the return of immeasurable evil forges her path to the kingdom of Mirkwood, whereupon recognizing the Elvenking, she finds herself bound by the cosmic wills of love and destiny.

    "Her life was a rather large cage, yes, but a cage nonetheless. And every choice she made was another chip in its steel bars. She would bend them. Smash them. Shatter them into a million pieces, so they could never be rebuilt.

    Thranduil was waiting. And she had promised to see him again."

    Summary

    In the months after the war is over, she starts to have strange dreams. The kinds which only become more vivid as time goes on – until one night they’re not just dreams.

    The truth is both simple and yet incredibly hard to believe: there is no such thing as Outer Sakura and Inner Sakura, rather there has always only been, and will only ever be one Sakura, just with something else latched to her mind.

    And it’s not her who’s Haruno Sakura.

    Summary

    “We are at the end of vanity,” Finrod says, the words heavy on his tongue just as Curufin’s hand is heavy on his chest.

    “Are we? The only thing we are at the end of is your reign,” Curufin replies. There is little venom in his voice; that is surprising. “O King of Nargothrond.”

    [Or, Finrod's last night in Nargothrond.]

Maedhros and Maglor, oathbound and dispossessed, haunted by their crimes, find themselves having to care for the children whose home they laid ruin to. In the cold halls of Amon Ereb, it turns out that not everything is as it looks, that good can come from evil, and that even the deepest divides can be bridged.

    In which Elrond and Maglor tell their story, from enemies to family, from the kinslaying at the Havens to the rise of Gil-Estel on the western sky.

    Summary

    A character study following the life of Maedhros Fëanorion, the whole damn thing if I really have the time for that. I mean you know what to expect if you've read the Silm so major character death and injury/torture shit will happen!

    this fic can pretty much be summed up in this excerpt:

    "Who says I'm upset at all?" he said, trying not to sound like he was whining as his voice went high.
    "Maitimo," Finde laughed, not in humor but in the obvious lie. "Your hands are shaking. You're crying."

    Summary

    Shining silver armor studded with diamonds. The music of a flute breaking through silence. A voice, the embodiment of the beautiful and the sublime, lovely in times of peace and terrible in times of war. She had taken on many roles, that of a musician, a traveler, a warrior, and finally, a Lady.

    Parts of Ecthelien of the Fountain's life in Gondolin. A time of uncertainty and worry, tempered by elements of laughter, friendship, and love.

    Summary

    The War of Wrath is grinding into its third bloody decade, and Lord Elrond has a choice to make. His friend Elboron wants to help if he can, even though he isn’t willing to tell Elrond that he was born Elured Diorchil of Doriath, and that he is, in truth, Elrond’s own uncle.

    Or, in which Uncle Elured does absolutely nothing to discourage Elrond (and Elros) from running away to fight in the Edain armies.

    Please note that this story takes place in the version of this Desperate Hours LOTR AU where there are absolutely no corporal punishment elements in any of the stories. If you would like the version of this story which does have corporal punishment elements, that story can be found here:
