    Summary

    It began, as it always did, above the stairs.

    It would end at the bottom, where he pulled himself up and the beast in his skin roared. It would end standing above the stairs again, with gentle fingers gripping his.

    But it began where he made every one of the most fateful decisions in his life.

    Summary

    “Xiao Jiu, it’s me. Yue Qi. Qi-Ge.” He says the words softly, like he’s telling a secret.

    More names? He’s barely gotten used to Shen QingQiu. He winces, but Yue QingYuan seems to take that as encouragement.

    “It’s better that I did not ask in front of Mu-Shidi, is it not? But Xiao Jiu, if you remember anything, surely you remember that. Surely you remember Qi-Ge.”

    Shen Jiu's spirit survives the fever. His memory doesn't.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji has never been good with words, or at writing. But, if it'll allow him to imagine a world where Wei Wuxian could actually love him back, he supposes it couldn't hurt to try.

    (Or, the one where Lan Wangji copes with his Feelings by writing self-insert fics. Yeah.)

    Summary

    After Beorhtnoth fell in the Battle of Maldon, Torhthelm was one of the two people who took his body to the monks of Ely for burial. But the war was far from over. Torhthelm finds himself travelling alone, and meets some people who he definitely did not expect.

    (This fits with my Return to Aman stories, though it's many thousand years later. I don't think it requires prior knowledge of The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm’s Son, though it might be a bit baffling if you don't know the Silmarillion either! )

    Summary

    A series of stories about Elrond's return to Aman at the end of the Third Age. All these assume that Maglor son of Fëanor was one of the other unnamed Elves who accompanied Elrond, Galadriel, Gandalf, Frodo and Bilbo on the ship when they left Middle-earth. Point of view is usually either Maglor or Elrond, but occasionally someone else (Celebrian, Lalwen, Nerdanel...)

    The first story, And the wind as sweet as honey in the mouth, is about Maglor and Elrond meeting again in the Second Age, rather than in Aman, but fits with the overall series otherwise.

    This series is connected with the Mandos series, about the experiences of Feanor, Fingolfin, Fingon, Curufin and Celegorm in the Halls of Mandos, but it can stand alone.

    All are welcome to remix, translate or reinterpret these works as they like. They are not my characters!

    Summary

    It had been days since Gwendoline received attention of any kind, and in her silly selfish vanity she mistook the girls’ honest grief for the silence of a captive audience, thrilling to her every word. “Why,” she began, tossing golden curls back across her shoulder, “I remember when I was young, and Mother said I might have a kitten for my own – but then Father forbade it, and I cried for days as I mourned that kitten. It’s not quite the same as Alicia, of course, but—”

    “I don’t care what anyone else says,” Darrell said, speaking up quite suddenly, “but if you don’t stop this minute, Gwen, I shall send you to Coventry for as long as I live.”

    (Gwendoline had never been a good girl, nor a kind girl, and under present circumstances this seemed rather more unfortunate than ever.)

    Summary

    "Maedhros sought destruction body and spirit, and found both. When Mandos summoned him, he refused, and first of them all he has been taken by the void that they swore themselves to. He is not in the world, and will not come again. Deeper darknesses are there than that which Morgoth made below Thangorodrim!” Fingon paused and looked at Finrod. “Should I not then have killed him as he asked me?”

    “No!” said Finrod, but Turgon said nothing.

    Sam grew even more upset. “Now that’s not right,” he said, “that can’t be right! Just or not – and I don’t know that it is, begging your pardon, sir – still, no story should end that way!”
