  1. 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.

  2. Summary

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

  3. Summary

    The "Maglor is Tom Bombadil" series: where Goldberry brings a Fëanorian home for dinner, Maglor learns to hope, and the ripple effect shakes the Second Age.

    (Series by martial_quill. One story, 'Now Let the Song Begin ' is co-authored with bunn, but because of the way Ao3 displays series, it looks like the entire series is co-authored.)

  4. Summary

    Maglor’s fate as per the published Silmarillion was to wander alone along the shore, singing in pain and regret. That version is the one that Christopher Tolkien created by making a slight amend to reconcile Elrond as a child with the Sons of Fëanor, with Elrond from Lord of the Rings, the Herald of Gil-galad.

    This series occurs in an adjacent shade of Arda, and tells the story as per Tolkien’s version of the Silmarillion from 1937, which is slightly different to the published Silmarillion:

    Yet not all the Eldalie were willing to forsake the Hither Lands where they had long suffered and long dwelt; and some lingered many an age in the West and North, and especially in the western isles and in the Land of Leithien. And among these were Maglor, as hath been told; and with him for a while was Elrond Halfelven, who chose, as was granted to him, to be among the Elf-kindred.

  5. Summary

    Stories about the House of Fëanor and the House of Fingolfin 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.

    I love Maedhros's dignity under trying circumstances and Maglor's understanding in this.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautiful writing as usual, and not quite as fluffy as you might think, there's a sharp bitter-sweetness to this story and a sense of mortality
