    Summary

    1000 years before the One Ring's Destruction, Gondor was almost destroyed in 1944 of the Third Age, setting off a chain reaction of events leading to the destruction of the Southern Line of Kings and Aragorn becoming the undisputed king of both Arnor and Gondor. But we only have the West's perspective of the 1944 event. What of the East? Travel beyond the Red Mountains and journey with us... into a World of Illusions.

    This is a Water Margin crossover replacing the setting of China with Middle-Earth.

    Summary

    “I wish for them, Denethor, I wish for my boys to be in my arms,” she paused, “Would you deny that of a dying mother?”

    “You are not dying,” the Steward’s reply was immediate, like the utterance of a denial would cease the reality of her illness,

    “Denethor…” she breathed softly, bringing her hand out of his hold and placing it on his cheek, “You and I both know that there is no hope of recovery for me.”

     
    As the Lady of Minas Tirith lays dying, she wishes for one last moment with her sons before she departs.

    Summary

    This is the second part of the tale of the surviving child of Celebrimbor of Eregion and how she fared through the Ages of the world. From the Fall of Ost-in-Edhil to Imladris and the vastness of Second Age Eriador, the fight against Sauron seems never ending. Plans have been set in motion across the Misty Mountains, but, in Lindon, many tasks await.

    Can be read fandom blind.

    Warning for slightly adjusted timeline according to the story needs, but not too noticeable as the structure stays intact. Verses from my favourite poems are also liable to get themselves in weird places.

    Summary

    She could not understand it at first, why her mind was the way that it was. Or her heart, for that matter. The most Ecthelion could grasp was that she was simply different from the other children that she played with, even Pendelot and Egalmeth, with whom she shared so much of her character. For the other children were not heavy of soul as she was. Though she played among them, sat among them, lived among them, something weighed on her, some strange force that no one else in Aman seemed to possess, as far as she was aware.

    Something was coming, she knew. Something was coming for her.

    *

    The song of Ecthelion: the long years of Valinor, the Sundering, and the home she finds on foreign shores.

    And the love she finds, almost against all odds, along the way.

    Summary

    Lunessa is the only Elven/witch crossbreed known to Middle Earth. Her story has been shared around Middle Earth as a myth, but she is very real. She resides in Rivendell with her father, Elrond. As a child, she met a boy who changed her wavelength and the trajectory of her life forever. Legolas Greenleaf. She never saw him again after that, but she surely still felt that connection to him grow deeper in her veins everyday. She longed for him without hardly even knowing who he was; all upon one meeting.
    Gandalf has requested Lunessa's help in aiding Thorin and Company on their journey to take back the Lonely Mountain, their rightful home. Her magic abilities would most definitely be of use for the dwarves and their endeavor. What Lunessa did not expect was to be reunited with Legolas along the way and find herself falling into an intense romance with him.

    Summary

    Sequel to "By Your Side"

    It picks up right where we left off-- Bilbo and Thorin have just gotten married.

    Continues on the themes from before- overcoming prejudice and navigating cultural differences, but now introducing the complexities of parenthood as well as exploring the (deceptively simple) question “what is family?”

    Still canon-compliant for the most part, taking a lot of artistic liberties when it comes to cultural interpretation and some timeline things, but trying to make it so the whole thing could arguably sit between Hobbit and Fellowship without really changing the events of either book (or movie):

    All shall crash and all shall burn,
    Gone to ash when he returns.

    Smite the light from moon and star,
    Cover the sun for he has come:
    The Lord Who Cannot Die shall rise,
    From beneath the putrid skies,
    And all shall crumble, one by one.

    Succumb to darkness and your fate,
    Night is coming, the hour is late.

    But—

    Beneath the earth, a precious gem,
    Lost and found and lost again.
    A son of Durin’s mighty line:
    For should this son come to arise,
    The Dark Lord meets his last demise.

    Summary

    (Formerly "The Horsewhisperer" but I changed the title)

    Years into his time as a Ranger in the wild, Aragorn's childhood steed returns to Rivendell riderless, can his friends find out where the rider has gone missing before its too late? And who will they sacrifice when they find him?
    Set 50ish years before LOTR
    Contains large amounts of shameless
    Twin-centric elf angst and mythology heavy Peredheil family drama
    How far would the Lord of Imladris go to protect his children? Would he jeopardize his own soul?

    This fic is filling in some gaps in LOTR and is slightly AU but i try to do my due diligence with lore; This is the story of how Strider got that nickname, why Elladan and Elrohir stayed in middle earth, why the Rohirim are so afraid of Galadriel and how Saruman got his ring...

    Summary

    "The first time he had seen her she had been tending to a grove that had been burned during a sudden wildfire that consumed the outlying villages of his realm.
    When they had left it had the bareness of a battlefield, but as the maia spun and danced in her moss green dress it came back to life.
    He wonders if this was how Thingol felt when he met his beloved Melian.
    Was he as entranced by Melian as Gil-Galad was of this red-haired creature dancing in the sunlight?"
    In which Melian and Thingol are not the only Maia and Elf romance to exist in Middle Earth

    Summary

    Boromir is annoyed when his younger brother wakes him to tell him of a prophetic dream, but is quickly convinced of its importance. When he and his brother go to tell their father, the usual conflict arises: why can’t his brother and his father get along? Meanwhile, Faramir is adamant that he should go to Imladris, and Denethor wishes Faramir did not remind him so much of his late wife.

    When it is decided that Boromir must go, he’s excited: he’ll have to stop over in Rohan, and he gets to see Théodred, one of his favourite lovers. But all is not well in Rohan, and Boromir wonders when he will next be able to tarry there. It’s time to continue the quest to find Imladris…

    (Seriously I wrote this solely to annoy a homophobic acquaintance. No. I am not kidding. I told him about it but I don’t think he has read it.)

    Summary

    An account of Maedhros, son of Feänor, and his time upon Arda. Following from his years of capture and torture in Angband until his death, Maedhros struggles with himself, his deeds, depression, PTSD, and suicide, as well as with the Oath of his father and of himself. But for all the darkness that surrounds him, they may yet be those who bring out the light.

    Gay romance, gore and violence, sexual themes, rape, lots and lots of blood, and of course, good old death. Please be aware of potential triggers. Canon compliant with J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion.

    basically a slow moving slow updating meander through a version of lord of the rings where gimli and legolas were already in a relationship before the fellowship starts - cant guarantee constant updates or 100% accuracy but i can hopefully guarantee a fun time!

    These are all the families I could find from Hobbits that are relevant in The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings (the first 4 chapters).
    The rest are just other hobbit families.
