  3. Summary

    Maedhros saga, with main focus on Maedhros' life in Beleriand but spanning all the way from the Time of the Trees almost to the end of Arda.
    The series is Maedhros/Fingon and the development of their relationship is one of the main interests of the saga, but other stories in the series look at Maedhros's interactions with his brothers, uncles, cousins, friends--basically whoever he is known or can be assumed to have interacted with.
    The series spans different genres and the stories can differ widely in mood, rating, etc.

    Summary

    No matter how good things seem to be going for him ever since Morgoth was overthrown, Celebrimbor can't ever be at peace. The Shadow still hangs over those born into the cursed House of Fëanor, and the fear of following in the steps of his forebearers gnaws at him in the dark hours of the night.

    That is quite a lot for Annatar to work with.

    Summary

    Looking at an old map of Beleriand, you may feel like Maglor ruled the tiny strip of land between the Little and the Greater Gelion – that would be the one labelled as “Maglor’s gap”, stuck between Himring and Thargelion; but in those times the Exiles held the Siege, encircling the Thangorodrim, and Maglor ruled the eastern link of the choking chain, from Lothlann to the northernmost foothills of the Ered Luin. I meant to ride as far north as I could, to where the Ered Luin almost met the great, red mountain range that was Morgoth’s stony kingdom.
    We are not there yet. We are still leaving Himring, riding down the stony path with goat herds flanking us.
     
    Finrod visits the Gap of Maglor, discovers life at the frontiers of the Noldorin realms is painted in shade of grey, and that some secrets should remain secrets.

    MAJ 09/13: After receiving many kind comments, I have decided to add a second part to this fic!
    Maj 09/27: The second arc is finished! The Quest for the Secret reaches Middle Earth, and we meet a new narrator!

    Summary

    ‘Lan Zhan, Lan Zhan, come and see!’

    Wei Ying’s voice was hushed, soft as he stood at the rear doors of the jingshi. Lan Wangji set aside his book, and rose to his feet, curious. Whatever Wei Ying wanted now, it must be something of note for his husband to stand in an open doorway during the first heavy snowfall of the season without complaining of the cold…

    Summary

    Lan WangJi was married off when he was young, at the whim of the Emperor of the time, to a boy he hardly knew. They lived in the same house for less than two months.
    He was still married, though that boy had been dead for thirteen years. It seemed quite clear to him that he was still married.
