  1. Summary

    "Sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic", Arda edition. Just slightly off-canon, assuming that canon is mostly Elven-written: with rockets to the Void, prosthetics and wheelchairs, mechanical dragons, surgery canonized as shape-shifting, nuclear energy of the Silima...

    (The stories do not need to be read in order, though And the Void Will Be Ours is a sort of introduction/summary).

  2. Summary

    The War of the Ring is over, and the surviving Orcs are doing their best to survive in the lands that are trying to recover after the War, but have collectively decided to ignore the losing side.

    A 4th Age sequel to Arda Forged, though can certainly be read separately.

    Summary

    "Ouyang watched the firelight playing off Lord Wang's downturned face. There was a strange, ill satisfaction there, as if Esen had proved something Lord Wang wanted -- but in having proved it, had killed some other part that was still holding out hope." - Shelley Parker Chan, She Who Became the Sun

    ***

    What if Esen had decided not to punish his brother? Lord Wang decides to let the cards fall where they lie, and Commander Zhao spills the beans.

    Ouyang crumbles.

    A sort-of-fix-it alternate universe.

    Summary

    F.A. 560. While the War of Wrath rages in Beleriand, the House of Olwë attempts to assemble a more complete account of the First Kinslaying than what seems to be the common version these days.

    ("He won't admit it but he is kind of put out about the way the facts were interpreted in Beleriand — that we were innocent helpless victims ravaged by the big bad Noldor. Also, someone finally told him the Noldor back in Tirion have been writing histories of the Darkening and just speculating wildly about the Kinslaying because they don't feel like they can ask us, and their version also casts us as helpless innocent victims. He'd like to set the record straight.")

    Summary

    For six thousand years, Aziraphale did his best to exist within the strictures of Heavenly conduct. It wasn’t a perfect practice; his relationship with Crowley, just for example, was never exactly what one might call “officially sanctioned,” or even, “particularly wise,” but the important thing was that Aziraphale tried. He wasn’t a very good angel, but he did his best, more or less. Wasn’t that all anyone could really ask of him?

    It doesn’t really feel fair, is the point, that in reward for saving the world, Aziraphale seems to be having something of an existential crisis.
