    Blood and Fire // Clodia

    Oropher at the second destruction of Menegroth, and the death of Dior.

    There's an incredible taut, claustrophobic feel to these final days of Menegroth, a blend of desolation and disaster. It combines the invasion of the physical tunnels of the city and the betrayal of emotional ties of its people to great effect.

    The Care & Feeding of Hobbits // Baylor

    Boromir has never met Hobbits before and has no idea what to expect, so the journey of the Fellowship is a learning experience.

    Here, In Paradise // Achromos

    Practically everything I want in Tolkien!fic - Elves with tragic first lives adapting to peaceful second lives, interspecies relationships, Elves being weird and Different, and people who made mistakes doing their best to atone for them. <3

    Tales of Aman // Ulan, peasantswhy
    [Arda Marred / All Eru's Children / A Star in Your Constellation]

    Incredible series that does a great job portraying the many attachments and losses in Elrond's life, particularly the repeated losses and reunions with Gil-galad and Celebrian. The threesome setup is deft and engages with the cultural baggage these characters would naturally have around marriage and infidelity, with very satisfying results!

    Summary

    In all Beleriand, chill Himring is the last place most would go for comfort. Fewer still would seek it in the arms of their crippled, kinslaying cousin. But Fingon has always had more courage than sense, has always loved a challenge.

    Delicate Pleasures // TheLionInMyBed

    One of my favourite fics for this pairing! Excellent tension and shining moments of sweetness. Maedhros in love is very much like Maedhros in war: resisting, testing, challenging, and refusing to surrender. Fingon's character rings true, too: his interest caught by challenge and conquest, not by peace.
