  1. Summary

    This series follows my Return to Aman series, and is probably most fun for people who like that one and want more.

  2. Summary

    Stories about the House of Fëanor, the House of Fingolfin, and Dior and Nimloth in the Halls of Mandos after their deaths.

    This series connects with the Return to Aman series about Elrond and Maglor coming back to Valinor after the fall of Sauron, but does not require it.

    Stories of Elrond and Celebrian. Canon-compliant, more or less, using content from LOTR, the Silmarillion, and Unfinished Tales, mostly, dusted with a few dates from History of Middle-earth.

  5. Summary

    These stories are all about the War of Wrath period, but were written at different times with different protagonists, and don't have to be read in any particular order. I'm trying to keep them more or less in chronological order.

    My novel-length work Quenta Narquelion covers the Eastern front, the Feanorians and Belegost in some detail, but I have not included it in this series as it is slightly canon-divergent, being narrated by Invisible Ghost Feanor.

    If you'd like to know what Nerdanel, Finarfin, Anaire, Earwen and Finrod were up to before the War, I wrote about that in The Eldar that Were Faithful, which fits in the same world as Quenta Narquelion but I don't think it has any canon divergent elements mentioned.

    Summary

    There were many empty rooms in Rivendell. But there were many guests, too, Elves who had arrived in order to cross the sea in the same great convoy as Elrond himself. They were waiting for the last to arrive, and then they would depart, streaming across the wilds and plains of Eriador, over the Ered Luin, down into Lindon. With them would go history, wisdom, learning and memory: beauty and song. And it would not come back.

    Among this throng, Maglor passed, perhaps, as a wild Elf, who had come in from the wilderness to make that journey with them.

    -

    At the end of the Third Age, Maglor finds his way to Rivendell, and must decide whether or not to sail West with Elrond.

    Maglor comes to Rivendell shortly before Elrond leaves. Really beautiful writing.

    Summary

    Where was his purpose? Where was the pressure of the great Mind on his mind, dashing him against the enemy walls? Where even were his fellow-soldiers to brawl with, his enemies to slaughter or be slaughtered by? Where was it all, anything to maim, to build, to burn, to kill, to obey, to plunder, to take captive? The great expanse around him wanted nothing of him – if it had sought to devour him that would have been better, that would have been a familiar fear. But it was utterly without desire – it was still with the stillness of death.

    -

    One of Sauron's orcish soldiers dies. This does not mean his life is over.

    A truly convincing horrible awful Sauron in Numenor.

    Elrond is capable, intelligent, wise, and reliable. If only he could stop scandalizing party guests and diplomats.
