    Summary

    "I am – I am not saying, don't put words in my mouth -" Kanafinwë Makalaurë wagged his finger at his cousin Findaráto Ingoldo, perched bright-eyed beside him on the edge of the stream - "that it is bad. You know full well that I believe there is no such thing as empirically bad music." They were kicking their feet in the moonlight water, watching the light dance in the fast-flowing spray, and they were both extremely drunk.

    When Tolkien imagined Middle-earth as an ancient Europe, I don't think he meant for me to map nearly a thousand years of European music history, both secular and liturgical, onto Tirion's academic community. (Take comfort, Professor, in the implication that they are all now Catholic.)

    The one with Singing back to/with the nightingales that follow him around. (In Chapter 7). Where singing and Singing are two different but related things. Where numinous and practical and academic are happening all at once. On par with Arrogant Emu and Anna Wing's worlds.

    Summary

    “'Too fair for love of mortal Men,'” Legolas repeated, eyebrows pinched. “What do you mean? Beren was no Man.”

    “What!” Gimli gaped at him. “That’s the whole point of the tale; what are you talking about?”

    “What are you talking about?”

    Gimli recites the Lay of Leithian. It is not the story Legolas knows.

    The strife of truth with Art -- what is story, what truth, what fact. Excellent meta, lit-crit, and a fine fic as well. Beren and Luthien in several perspectives/versions/modes.

    Summary

    “Welcome back, my light,” Maedhros said, opening an eye.

    The corner of Fingon’s mouth quirked at the nickname. Maedhros seemed to be in high spirits.

    Maedhros and Fingon enjoy life and their undefined relationship post-reembodiment.

    Lovely post-Return queerplatonic relationship between Fingon and Maedhros. Starts with very funny outsider-view gossip that paints a touching picture.

    The one from Gothmog's point of view, with the banality of the evil of Angband. Both horrifying and beautifully written.
