At the End of All Things by lintamande
Tolkien once envisioned Middle-earth coming to an end in an apocalyptic final battle. Set in 2017 in Copenhagen and in Dallas and in Fargo, North Dakota, this is a story about Sauron, petroleum engineering, Morgoth, the surveillance state, the House of Fëanor, geopolitics, and Arda's final reckoning.

I didn't read this for ages because I thought it was an accursed modern AU, but it is in fact a Dagor Dagorlad fic. The reborn house of Hurin is delightful, and then you get to the Fëanorians and they are so terribly in character, by which I mean: terrible. And yet.

A Boy, A Girl, And A Dog: the Leithian Script by Philosopher at Large
The Tale of Tinuviel, dramatized script version. Originally by Philosopher at Large, acquired from, now formatted and reposted here by me, notes and cast list intact.

My notes: I hated this so much, why am I linking it? I usually only pin things I might want to reread. partly because it was so long. recognise my hatereading accomplishment. that is time I will never get back that MIGHT have been spent on useful things. partly because the Beren/Luthien pickings are slim. partly because it is a Silmarillion fandom classic and it ought to be represented here, I suppose.

why did I hate it? everyone is awful. there is none of the magic of Tolkien. the writer is so extremely a self-conscious male ~intellectual~. none of the actually good parts of leithian appear: did you want Beren and Luthien falling in love? Thingol's ultimatum? Beren and Finrod and the Ten fighting Sauron or in the dungeons? Luthien saving Beren and casting the Tower down? ANY of the silmaril quest or lulling Morgoth or fighting thuringwethil or their costumes? any of their brief marriage the first time around? beren's sick silmaril burn to thingol? Beren fighting Carcaroth and dying?

NONE OF THAT IS IN HERE. This is just endless quarrelling conversations that the writer thinks are cleverer than they are where people talk about these events after they happen. it is hell. most of this fic occurs in a waiting room in the halls of Mandos and really. that's all you need to know. this fic is the equivalent of sitting in the waiting room somewhere. forever. while wanting to kill everyone else in the room because they're all unbearable.

After the Fire by lise
The Dagor Bragollach is lost, the Pass of Aglon has been breached, and Curufin and Celegorm are fleeing south to an uncertain destination.

And if that's not misfortune enough, it can always get worse.

Beyond The Western World by thearrogantemu
“Come into the light,” he said slowly.

“You don’t need it to see me.” The voice was so familiar, so unbearably familiar.


After a moment there was motion among the trees, and the firelight fell on the figure of a solitary man, his feet bare and his hair unbound, wrapped in plain grey. Finrod didn’t rise to greet him, but lifted his head and looked him up and down: the slender frame, the tension in his bearing, the features whose fineness bordered on delicacy.

“Curufinwë Atarinkë,” he said at last, giving each syllable of the name its full weight. “You look awful.”

Curufin and Finrod finally have it out, thousands of years after Nargothrond and their deaths.

I am no summer friend by liveoakwithmoss
Take counsel, sever from my lot your lot,

in joy and in tragedy by raisingcaiin
Perhaps Finrod was foolish to imagine that the actions of a single Noldo would be enough to counteract the Oath his cousins swore.

Though to hear others talk, there is no "perhaps" about it - he was definitely foolish.
