caranthir   39

The Sandglass Runs by dawnfelagund
In Fifth Age Tirion, Caranthir has been reembodied into a changed world: his uncle has unkinged himself and turned Tirion into a republic, Elves live in suburbs and seek psychotherapy, and the Noldor born after his exile have invented all kinds of wondrous things. One day, Caranthir receives a letter that he is being entrusted to mentor his newly reembodied cousin Orodreth. They must not only resolve their old enmity but achieve a tenuous friendship--maybe even more?--as both seek the peace and acceptance they never found in their prior lives.

Continuation of her Fifth Age series; works best if you've read her 350k epic, too, and the Finrod/Celegorm fic in Nargothrond, in terms of backstory.

“You would be dead to a man if I had not come,” said Caranthir. “To a woman!”

Haleth meets three Elven-Kings as the Haladin search for a homeland in Beleriand, and deals with mourning, survival, and culture clash.

"...but Celegorm and Curufin vowed openly to slay Thingol and destroy his people, if they came victorious from war."

my note: being the sensible one must feel so strange to caranthir

Constellation by dawnfelagund
Upon the black sky of night, Varda scattered her stars, and we—the Eldar—held our hands to the sky and, with our fingers, made our first drawings to connect the constellations. I have heard him called dark, sullen, but when I look upon his face, I cannot see the darkness for the light in his eyes.

Caranthir and Rùmil speak without words. In the universe of Another Man's Cage.

Discretion by dawnfelagund
Privately, I sometimes thought that they must secretly despise each other. Here, each had been given so many special gifts, only to find them precisely replicated in the other. Beautiful, gracious, learned, and wise, such a fortunate accident should happen only once to any single family, and I often imagined that our family's boon that it happened twice in ours must be their most profound mischance.

The Choice of Spirits by dawnfelagund
Unlucky in love, Caranthir has settled into his lonely life in Middle-earth when love comes from the most unexpected of places: a mortal woman leading a band of refugees upon his land. In the love that grows between Haleth and Caranthir, the two cannot quite overcome the expectations of their people to be together fully, as they wish, and they face the inevitability of separation after death.

Another Man's Cage by dawn felagund
The fandom classic, pre-Silmarils, House of Finwë familydrama novel. Probably the most influential Silmarillion fic of all time, in terms of setting up Finwean family drama. Unfortunately the updated version is at SWG (linked), and the version on Ao3 is the unedited original from c.2005, so it should be read on SWG. I really do love this but in my head it's a prequel to later Beleriand-era Fingon/Maedhros.
