We Keep Living Anyway by StarSpray
Finally, Gil-galad said, "Why did you come out here alone?"

Elrond didn't answer right away. He picked up a seashell and turned it over in his fingers. "I was—angry," he said finally. "It would not be befitting for the lord of Imladris to stand in the middle of Mithlond and scream at the sky, I thought."

There would be no stone for Ereinion Gil-galad, no stone for Finduilas. That was fine. Her mark was not a monument.

Elrond Peredhel has finally arrived on the shore of the Undying Lands, but he cannot help but feel that he is a failure, as a lord, as a husband, as a father, as a man. He is content to live the rest of his days in obscurity, but when Maglor arrives, shipwrecked and half-starved on the shores of Valinor, Nerdanel and Maglor's wife beg him to advocate for the last of the Fëanorians, to prevent him from suffering the punishment of the Kinslayers. As he reveals his memories of Maglor, he reconciles with his wife, but will he manage to save Maglor from the vengeance of his kin?

a revelation and a half by esmeraldablazingsky
Gil-galad is injured, and he’s definitely hiding something. Elrond can and will find out.

Chieftain of the village by himring
Fingon wanders in Eastern Beleriand and comes across a long-lost relative.

my note: standalone story explaining Gil-Gilad. All you need to know from the overall arc is that Maedhros is pining and Fingon still oblivious. I like this Lalwen/Írimë.

By Any Other Name by dorkangel
A monarch cannot be a private person. In many ways, they exist only as a public persona - and more than one prince might assume that persona. In times of crisis people are not particularly inclined to question such things. After all: there must always be a king.


Tuor had laughed outright, when this suggestion was first made to him. He had stopped only when he realised Círdan had not intended it to be a joke.

“We can’t just pretend that Artanáro is still alive.” he objected. “People will notice.”

“They will accept it if it comforts them,” countered Círdan, refusing to acknowledge that he well knew how ridiculous this charade would be. “Besides,” he went on. “I suspect it would not be the first time.”

Cornflowers in Belfalas by bunn
Just after the fall of Eregion and the death of Celebrimbor, Celebrían came to Imladris and met Elrond for the first time. Elrond first saw Celebrían then and loved her, but 'said nothing of it'. But how did things seem to Celebrían ? And how did things go, over a thousand years later, when Elrond finally told Celebrian that he loved her?

Sequel to 'Coming to the Valley', itself following on from 'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens' which is a sequel to 'Quenta Narquelion'. They're each close enough to canon to stand alone but this one does benefit from having read 'Coming to the Valley'.

The Art of Losing by havisham
Both versions of Gil-galad's parentage are true.

(Or, how fighting for the future may not be as inspiring as all that.)

Between Two Worlds by potboy
Wonder came over Ereinion at the enigmatic words - because he understood perfectly what the Sinda meant. Here was a foreigner who spoke the same language as he. "Yes," he said. "Yes it does. Deep in me. My bones are formed of this same rock of Middle-earth, and yet I am a Noldo. How can you say that my people are 'fortunate in me' when I am sundered from everything they care for? I am Noldor, but I am Umanyar, and I do not know how to choose between the two!"

The Long Road by kaz
Elladan really wasn't planning to get thrown back in time to Beleriand, but the world didn't bother asking his opinion. Now, he struggles to find a way back home as the First Age unfolds around him. The host of newly acquired relatives, including a great-uncle with a flair for dramatics, sons of Fëanor who insist on being people rather than historical villains, and a several-times great-grandmother with some unexpected skills, just make it more overwhelming.

The Price of Vengeance universe by encairion
In order: The Revolutionary and the Usurper (170k), The Secret Language Brother (27k), The Price of Vengeance (540k), Earendil on the Purchasing of Whores (14k), The Price of Duty (170k), The Vanyar's Rebellion (17K), The Price of Memory (140k), Lost Children of the Sun (61k), The Price of Vengeance II (400k), and Heralds of the Dawn (130k and counting).

My note: hopelessly addictive, surprisingly interesting worldbuilding and race/colonialism work, but also very old school slytherfen (elftrashfen?) in that many Good Guys are now Bad, and vice versa, and everyone is gay, also there's way more incest than I bargained for, and I thought I was in for a ton (why would you make unrelated characters super related to make them bang?), and certain female characters are Shrill/Bad/Mad (but there are redemptive arcs for most of them paying off by now admittedly. STILL. YOU COME AT GALADRIEL YOU BEST NOT MISS). Would I rec this? No. Would I admit to someone who respected me that I'd read it? No. Did I lose a week to this and gasp like a fish on dry land when I ran out of story? I did.


It's like the Saving Connor of elftrash only longer and it drags much less. And instead of everything being child abuse and torture everything is incest.

beyond the sea by keiliss
Erestor sails with Elrond and Galadriel, hoping to make a new life in the land promised as Elvenhome; strange, eerie, changeless, a place where the dead are reborn or rehoused or never return at all, the living become spirit, and no one walks on the beach.
