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.

A Cast of Silver by mira_jade
During the long journey to Valinor, Celebrían takes the time to record her story for those waiting to hear it on the Western shore.

From the troubled genius of Celebrimbor, and the vile machinations of Sauron; to the glory of Moria, the timeless wonder of Lórinand, and the birth of Imladris; Celebrían recalls the joys and tribulations of coming of age during the war-torn days of the Second Age. In the end, she finds that, perhaps, the courage to face the future lies firmly entrenched in the strength gained from the past.

captain's guerdon by eresse
Desire and fate seem to conspire against a legendary warrior when he catches the attention of one relentless soldier prince. The back story to Elladan and Glorfindel’s relationship in Chance Met.

My note: trash but so id. is it well-written? not especially. does it involve a certain amount of elves crying and emotional backmailing each other like all her fic? sure. do I sometimes long for the overdramatic slash epics of the early 00s? I do. this meets that need.

To Morning Through the Shadow by thearrogantemu
“Think about it. What if you get everything you want? What if this works? What if, in pain and in the fear of pain, I yield to your will? Where you once had a friend, you will now have a cringing slave. Then, Annatar, and only then, will we both be lost beyond recall.”

Alternate Ending for These Gifts That You Have Given Me where Sauron actually gives in as well as loses.
