orodreth   5

The Sandglass Runs by dawnfelagund
In Fifth Age Tirion, Caranthir has been reembodied into a changed world: his uncle has unkinged himself and turned Tirion into a republic, Elves live in suburbs and seek psychotherapy, and the Noldor born after his exile have invented all kinds of wondrous things. One day, Caranthir receives a letter that he is being entrusted to mentor his newly reembodied cousin Orodreth. They must not only resolve their old enmity but achieve a tenuous friendship--maybe even more?--as both seek the peace and acceptance they never found in their prior lives.

Continuation of her Fifth Age series; works best if you've read her 350k epic, too, and the Finrod/Celegorm fic in Nargothrond, in terms of backstory.

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 rustbucket.net, 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.

Later, he touched Finrod’s chest, lightly enough to startle. “You will not regret this,” he said.

That was his first lie.
