Books Should Have Good Endings by bunn
Bilbo goes here, there, and all around, but never back again to the lands of mortal men. A visit to Old Gondolin, a visit to Hithlum, and much discussion of very ancient history

note: not just in continuity with Undying Lands as a series but also needs to be read after the Halls of Mandos/Return to Aman series

From Ashes, Rise by Marchwriter
He'd faced a Balrog on the cliffs of the Cristhorn. At least then he had had a sword, and, at the time, no particular need to live beyond that moment. Glorfindel returns to Middle-earth and journeys to find the one who might bring him absolution.

Under Strange Stars by Idrils_Scribe
Barely a long-year after the Last Alliance, all is not well in Imladris. Elrond's household has been dealt a crippling blow: a very young Elrohir has disappeared. After decades of false leads he is found in the Far South of Middle-Earth. Can Glorfindel rescue the House of Earendil once more? His task is not an easy one: Elrohir has no memory of who he was, and little interest in leaving his people's fight against the Black Númenóreans of Umbar ...

My note: definitely enjoying the third story in the series the most, but the first two are good. I like stories that look at the strangeness/uncanniness of elves, and a Peredhel living among humans and finding out that he's half-elven and returning to that culture is really neat. Plus the body horror of regrowing teeth, etc.

You Live Your Life In The Shadow Of The Mountain by darth fingon
At the end of the First Age, religious feuds and civil unrest threaten Valmar and Tirion. A 'What-If' AU.

My note: Essentially an au of Darth Fingon's Glorfindel cycle, with all that implies: fascinating world-building, deep consideration of the Vanyar and their religion/closeness to the Valar, language nerdery, a certain lol edgy realpolitik darkness. Here Darth Fingon's Glorfindel never leaves for Middle Earth but stays on the Mountain, becoming a priest within the Vanyar Manwe cult. Only makes sense if you've read his other fic.

The Mantle of Power by potboy
Slowly, very slowly, but far too fast for the time sense of one from Valinor, towards whom the changes of Middle Earth reeled with shocking suddenness, the valley was falling back into wilderness.

why don't we join the masquerade by anon
Maeglin is almost completely unknowing of the ways of Gondolin when he arrives, so Glorfindel offers to become his teacher. It leads to far more than Glorfindel had bargained for.

The Boys of Summer by keiliss
This does not pretend to be the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. That is a vast tale of a battle to rival the Battle of the Somme in our own time, with all its moments of terror and heroism (plus dragons, balrogs, and the death of a king). This is just about Gildor, son of Lalwen, and Glorfindel of the House of the Golden Flower (which Gildor assures me sounds better in Quenya) and a little of their experience during those six days of horror.

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.

Something Stronger by tehta
Few could frown as well as Aikanáro. His narrowed eyes were truly piercing, an impression reinforced by the spiky ends of his hair. “As a prince of the Noldor, I have real responsibilities. My actions should have purpose, and this seaside interlude has none. Perhaps that is why I am so… restless.”

Return to Me by peasantswhy
Sometimes, however—when he nestles down for the night and stars splay out like a banner overhead—he allows himself to remember. Gondolin. He remembers a different sky, remembers the smell of flowers drifting through his open window. Crushed herbs from his garden between his fingers, their oil smearing into the delicate skin over his pulse. The weight of another cleaving tight against him. Coal-black hair falling through his hands.

Glorfindel returns to Middle Earth.
