maeglin   28

sunlight scattering by dorkangel
A chance encounter in the woods, a friendly face, an opportunity for redemption. The smallest intervention can change a lot.

In Courts Of Living Stone by ncfan

Decisions and Revisions by lise
Maeglin manages to tell someone what he did. Gondolin still falls. Maeglin doesn't.

Or, when you attempt self sacrifice and it doesn't go the way you planned.

my note: at last, a Maeglinwife who will do the work to redeem him

The Cat Among the Elves by Lepidopteran (lepi)
Maitimo, as all the sons of Fëanáro, is not so easily forgiven. As his brothers are slowly reembodied after the end of the Third Age, Maitimo is given a different fate: his soul is placed in the mortal body of a cat. Unable to speak and trapped in a body foreign to him, Maitimo slowly begins to reconnect with his family— especially his beloved cousin Findekáno.

my note: follows Tolkien's earliest idea of how elf rebirth functions, which I find an uncomfortable concept

outsiders of gondolin by himring
A series of ficlets about Maeglin and Salgant.

By some people's mileage, perhaps slightly AU. At any rate, interpreting these characters' motives less negatively than the canon account might suggest.

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.

No One by dawn felagund
Idril sits down to dinner with her cousin Maeglin shortly after the deaths of his parents. What begins as an uneventful meal dominoes into resentment and defensiveness as her own traumatic memories of her mother's death surface.

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.

scraps from gondolin by thegildedmagpie
Moments from everyone's favorite doomed city. Visit soon - and bring the kids!

This is a repository of Gondolin-related snippets, moments pulled out of more ambitious fics I probably won't finish, and suchlike detritus that I do not deem fit for separate-fic status. Most of it is (at least slightly) angsty. The vast majority will involve Maeglin, Turgon, or both.
