    Summary

    Elladan and Elrohir. The sons of Elrond. Fandom typically presents two very different takes on "the twins," so this story tries to settle the question. Are they the prank-loving mischief-makers from Rivendell, or the grim avengers of their mother Celebrían? The answer lies within...

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A brilliant portrayal of the twins: the melding of fanon / canon (pranksters but with a dark side). And as always, Laud does a gorgeous job of painting Orcs with a refreshing villainy and yet somehow 'human.' :)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    a beautiful, entirely plausible gap filler before Luthien sets forth after Beren. These characters are cunningly and deeply realized in a small space; every word made to count

    Summary

    During the long journey to Valinor, Celebrían takes the time to record her story for those waiting to hear it on the Western shore.

    From the troubled genius of Celebrimbor, and the vile machinations of Sauron; to the glory of Moria, the timeless wonder of Lórinand, and the birth of Imladris; Celebrían recalls the joys and tribulations of coming of age during the war-torn days of the Second Age. In the end, she finds that, perhaps, the courage to face the future lies firmly entrenched in the strength gained from the past.

    Summary

    MY PURPOSE , now complete, is to archive the epic series the Mellon Chronicles for readers to continue to enjoy. I do not claim authorship or ownership of any work in the Mellon Chronicles - that belongs to Cassia and Siobhan, and to Tolkien.

    As readers may be aware, the original site at which the Chronicles were archived (aragorn-legolas.5u.com) has ceased to exist. I retrieved the all the stories from the online web archive Wayback Machine but I am unsure how much longer they will be available there either. So I am planning on re-posting them all here, in an effort to prevent them from disappearing from the internet altogether. There may be other sites where the works are also archived, but I could not find any from Googling.

    In the series, you can find all of the stories in chronological order (that is to say, the order in which they appear in their entirety, not the order in which they were written).

    If you appreciate being able to read the Mellon Chronicles here and, like me, do not want them to be lost, please comment and let me know. Thank you to everyone who has already done so, it makes me very happy to know that I'm not the only person who still remembers and enjoys these stories :)

    Love these old classics whose tropes are used even in fanfic today
