the art of losing by havisham
“He will be better off away from here,” Maedhros offered. “His is the future we’re fighting for.”

“Not another slogan, I beg you,” Fingon said with a small smile. “But I know it.”

Entrapment by dorwinionwhining
As the enemy presses their advantage, Maedhros is wounded, and Maglor is hurt. The twins are smart enough to duck out early.

Alternate summary: The comfort part of hurt/comfort is difficult to pull off when everyone, yourself included, is kind of an asshole.

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.

annunciation by elftrash
Eru moves to make light out of darkness, to take wrong and make right, to weave new harmonies out of dissonance.

Or: Beleriand has driven them all a little mad, Angband or not.

I knew already that I would do anything Maedhros asked of me. I had found that out in Angband.

Fight me, by nibeneth
It is twenty-eight years, three months, one week, and six days from the date of Maedhros' rescue, meaning that starting today, he has been free for longer than he was a prisoner.

cliffs of fall by arriviste
The day Maedhros leaves the halls of Mandos, Fingon is waiting for him.

He had not imagined anyone would be. Perhaps his mother? But not Fingon, not after so long. Not after the long years after Fingon died, and what Maedhros did in them.

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

The Monster by thegreatpumpkin
Children do not laugh when Maedhros Fëanorion draws near. But when he turns—slowly, idly, as if he is only observing the horizon—that is what he hears: the delighted, disembodied laughter of children.

Boundaries by dawn felagund
No, I could not ask Grandfather Finwë. He would want first to know why I didn’t know Nelyo’s whereabouts—if anyone else were seeking him, I’d be the first asked—and next to know why I wanted to know. It was already felt that Nelyo and I monopolized each other’s attention. “Your friendship with him,” my brother Turukáno told me once, “sucks all of the air out of the room. No one can get a word in with either of you if the other one is there.”

The Captured Prince by adlanth
He paced and prayed, he screamed and sang to himself, he slept and woke; he marked the passing of days and hours by the motion of a single square shaft of light across the stone floor of his cell; he hoped and despaired with every cycle that it made, until one day the pattern was broken, and a shadow fell unexpectedly; and he looked up, and saw, crouching on the wide stone sill of the one, high barred window, a child.

An intense dislike of elves by himring
Amlach seems to be the only one of the early Edain who is explicitly said to have entered the service of Maedhros, so he may have been the first of Men to do so and he may have gone to Himring alone. This story imagines the feelings of an Adan who originally opposed the Eldar and now finds himself spending his life among them, all on his own.

It also tries to answer the question why he picked Maedhros specifically as his prospective leader and whether Maedhros fulfilled his expectations.

my note: stands alone.

Uldor by himring
This is the story of the unequal friendship between Maedhros and Uldor and its bitter end in betrayal and death, told from Uldor’s point of view.

It does not say anywhere that they were friends that I know of, but it seemed a reasonable explanation to me of what happened before Nirnaeth Arnoediad. Otherwise, wouldn’t the sons of Feanor have to have been a bit slow on the uptake or the sons of Ulfang fiendishly clever?

my note: stands alone. don't make me sad for the betrayer :(
