  2. 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.

  3. Summary

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

  4. 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.)

  5. 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.

    History of Middle-earth V; The Lost Road and Other Writings Part 2: "Valinor and Middle-earth before The Lord of the Rings" Chapter 6 "Quenta Silmarillion" The Conclusion of the Quenta Silmarillion §28

    Summary

    As one of the few in Aman who has engaged in long term study of the Atani (including a period in which I lived among them quite as one of their own), I feel that a few observations from me on this subject might prove helpful. Alas, my original notes were forever sundered from me as an unfortunate consequence of my death by werewolf. Eru Ilúvatar preserves the soul, but the hröa must be made anew: and like the flesh, research notes can only cross what was once the Sundering Sea by ship. I suppose they are now at the bottom of said Sea, if they were not previously destroyed in the ruin of Nargothrond. It is fortunate that I have a perfectly crystalline memory, and can therefore make good the loss.

    Finrod just Finrodding. Lovely to see him having fun in the most Finrod way, having clearly entirely recovered from werewolf.

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