    Summary

    "Many's the talk I had with [Bilbo] when I was a little lad" Sam Gamgee says, and then much later: "I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales...you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book."

    So here is young Sam Gamgee hearing far-off tales of Elves, Bilbo Baggins, trying to piece together the tale of the Silmarils for the first time, Frodo Baggins being a wild young mushroom-stealing tearaway who matures into an earnest scholar, and Merry Brandybuck and Sam Gamgee getting started on their great Conspiracy.

    Summary

    "...[Fëanor] died; but he had neither burial nor tomb, for so fiery was his spirit that as it sped his body fell to ash, and was borne away like smoke; and his likeness has never again appeared in Arda, neither has his spirit left the halls of Mandos."

    What if his spirit has never left the halls of Mandos because it never went there in the first place?
    Fëanor, dead, watches the First Age unfold and from time to time, joins in. Canon-compliant character death and a detailed account of the Eastern Front of the War of Wrath. [Thanks to pp for beta reading] NOW COMPLETE.

    Summary

    If you're desperate enough, even your father's dark ghost looks like hope. After the attack on the Havens of Sirion, Beleriand has fallen under the hand of the Enemy. Maedhros and his people have taken refuge in the woods of the Taur-im-Duinath.

    Set during the seven year period between the attack on the Havens and the arrival of the Host of Valinor. This fits into the story told in Quenta Narquelion, but I hope it also stands alone.

    Summary

    Curufin, in the Halls of Mandos, writes of regrets he does and doesn't have.

     

    Five pages of regrets, written in a language no-one knows. I’ll parcel them up and give them to the Maiar of Mandos. Who knows? Perhaps I will have bought a little of my father’s time, which like his Silmarils is stolen from him and held by others who have no right to claim it.

    Summary

    Celebrimbor returns from the Halls of Mandos, to be greeted by Finrod, Galadriel, Elrond, Celebrían and Orodreth, and travels to Tol Eressëa to meet Maglor, Frodo and Bilbo. And then a long-awaited ship arrives.

    When he first saw it hanging there, the blood was still red. Months later, when they had been driven into the North and had been under siege for a while, it had been black and stinking, the body disintegrating, held together with chains. A strong hand shook his arm, and he blinked again, and came out of the memory that had swept over him.

    “You worry too much, Elrond,” Celebrimbor said, looking up at him, serious-faced. “I got better!”
