    Summary

    Do you still hear 'em screaming? And does the fear make you run? Is this anger inside of you a gift from father to son?

    Six AUs in which Gil-galad is a grandson of Feanor, and one where he's not.

    Summary

    But they do not come on the day that Elendil had assured him they would. A week- a fortnight- passes, and nobody emerges from the plains north of Minas Tirith. There are no silver-prowed ships, and no blue pennants, and no messages either. Anárion cannot even send his own scouts out; they need them within the city, and he cannot quite countenance it simply to assuage his curiosity. All he can do is wait, and the silence feels more ominous than even messages might have been, no matter how bad the news.

    And then, three weeks late, a host limps out of the mist: muddied, shadowed soldiers of Gil-Galad’s army; the vanguard for the rest of their forces.

    [As the Last Alliance marches south to Gondor, their first battle occurs in Fangorn Forest, where Isildur is gravely injured by a betrayal for which he is both innocent and guilty. Kings Oropher and Amdír are threatening to abandon the alliance; King Elendil is deeply worried over his eldest son's fate; King Gil-Galad is straining to hold it all together until they reach Mordor.

    And that's all before a malevolent snowstorm forces them to remain in Osgiliath for the winter.]

    Summary

    Caranthir sighs, disgusted, and sits on the bed, as far as he can get from Celegorm without appearing like he’s halfway to crawling out of his skin. “I didn’t come back to life so I could hear how much my dying traumatized you.”

    “You fucking bastard,” says Celegorm, and lunges.

    [When Caranthir is reborn into Valinor, he must deal with everything he left behind in Beleriand- the annoying brothers, the overbearing parents, the family he lost and will never regain.

    But there are things that Caranthir does not know. There are lies that have not yet been unwound. There are mercies he has never expected. It takes orange trees, infuriating brothers, silver ribbons and unseasonal thunderstorms, but slowly Caranthir learns precisely how wrong he is.]
