  2. Summary

    “How does it end for them?”

    “If things remain unchanged, then in sorrow.” Vanimórë gave a bleak smile. “How else could it end, between an Elf and a mortal woman?” 

    “Indeed.” Elgalad brushed the surface of the portal. It hissed faintly, and the air tasted of salt and metal and ice. Maglor and Claire and their pretty town vanished into darkness. “If things remain unchanged.”

    *

    A crossover between Spiced Wine's Dark Prince AU, and Narya's series 'The Wanderer.'

    In the Portal in the Timeless Halls, Vanimórë sees a vision of a different Earth - one where the Fëanorions were not reborn, and there was no apotheosis by the shores of the sea. Maglor has wandered alone for thousands of years, but in twenty-first century Scotland, he meets a young woman named Claire James. Vanimórë watches their lives, and makes a decision that will change the future of their world...

  4. Summary


    Vanimórë, son of Sauron, was born in the shadows of Tol-in-Gaurhoth. A plaything, a slave, a warrior, he was bound to his father's mind, and tempered as a weapon of the Dark over thousands of years.

    They forged better than they knew.

    Trained in the pits of Angband, Vanimórë could command armies, kill without conscience, and he could hate those he served. But he would not break for them. The blood of the Eldar ran strong in him. His path was inextricably linked to some of the most famed and tragic of the Elves, and lead to a destiny he could never have imagined.

    The Darkness...
    ...Has its own Light.

    Summary

    Chastillon was filled with the ghosts of Laurent's innocence. It didn't matter. He didn't think of it. He was silent as he rode, and his mind was hard at work on other matters. The plans he had so meticulously been making, he now set about tearing apart and rearranging. Now he was contemplating winning.

    His path to the border strewn with pitfalls and traps of his uncle's making and haunted with memories of the past, Laurent is forced into relying on the unlikely assistance of his brother's killer. This is an attempt to examine Prince's Gambit from Laurent's POV.

    Summary

    Laurent had come to Marlas a bright and innocent youth caught up in his brother's excitement, in the romance of battle and the righteousness of their cause. He left the battlefield alone, a stranger to himself, ready to be reshaped into a creature of someone else's design. Time and trauma cut him farther from himself, from the ability to do anything but play the losing game he found himself caught up in.

    This is an attempt to examine the first novel from Laurent's POV.

    Summary

    "Does it hurt you to think of him hurting your country?" he asked, and he told himself that he was pleased, that he wanted Damen hurt. That is eased his own pain if Damen, too, were forced to suffer.

    "You know it does," Damianos answered. He paced like a caged animal, like one of Halvik's chained leopards, full of retrained violence, yet he came no closer. "Are we playing now with the fate of nations?" he demanded. "It won't bring your brother back."

    With the Regent in Ios and his Akielon's identity revealed, the war for the throne of Vere is gaining heat. Laurent's plans for his alliance and his trust in his Akielon have both been shaken by his Uncle's machinations, but he is determined that he will continue the fight, no matter how much it hurts. This is an attempt to examine King's Rising from Laurent's POV.

    An absolutely brilliant read!
    I love the Captive Prince books but have so often wanted to read from Laurent’s POV. Brava!

    Summary

    Ar-Pharazôn, the mighty King of Númenor, thinks he has triumphed when his powerful enemy, Sauron, surrenders. Thinking to use the sorcerer’s knowledge, the King carries him back to his glorious island kingdom. However, Sauron’s greatest power lies not in his armies, but in his capacity for guile and seduction. A drama with many players.

    Rating: M overall, although, no doubt, future chapters will have explicit content.

    The stunning Elegy for Númenor. Volume I is one of my all time favourite fanfics and I’m thrilled to see Elfscribe posting the second volume.
