    Bookmarker's Notes

    Late Gondolin fic (though pre-fall), and a great look into how a number of characters are handling the tensions in the city following Maeglin's return from Angband. Also some fascinating flashback to Voronwë's time at sea, and an elaborate and exquisite garden. I love gardens.

    Also also, I am now an Elemmakil/Voronwë shipper.

    I love how Maeglin has established himself in the society of Gondolin, and become a very real power within the city, and crafty and knowing in his dealings with its citizens, and yet still completely misses (or misinterprets) some of what's going among the other characters.

    Summary

    In a small town outside Alqualondë, Glorfindel and Ecthelion meet for the first time.

    May contain some unpleasant imagery.

    Update: now with a vaguely slashy sequel.

    A light-hearted, youthful escapade. With puns. :)

    Summary

    This series includes all the stories I have ever written about my versions of Ecthelion and Glorfindel, in mostly chronological order (from their point of view, not the author's.) Except, that is, for the final story, which contains various extras.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Where do I even start? I love tehta's writing to death: it's hilarious and intensely well put-together. I first read this series when my only acquaintance with the Silmarillion was over ten years old, but my partner was getting (back) into it, 'And, btw, Glorfindel and Ecthelion are great!' Say who? Theban Band was accessible and enjoyable then, and got better and better on subsequent re-readings as I did reacquaint myself with the Silm, and was able to recognize more of the references that tehta draws in.

    Also: these fics are at least 50% of why Ecthelion is my favorite of the Gondolindrim and 90% of why I finally started reading Tolkien fic.

    Wonderful wacky Gondolin shenanigans.
