The King's Commission by larner
The King Elessar wishes to commission a memorial to the Pheriannath who helped win the War of the Ring. But how to do one of Frodo, who is no longer in Middle Earth?

My note: amazing how some of the young frodo backstory clearly comes from a neverending million word wip I followed in high school. It can't be found anywhere but by wayback now, but apparently it lives on.

This fic is about 200k too long. If it stopped after the Shire it would be good, but it NEVER STOPS and the sculptor's interest in Frodo gets creepy and there is Easterling politics and a deranged pedohile sculptor raping all his boy apprentices and burying them in the garden, and look, I love French ancien regime court etiquette more than most people, but I DO NOT BELIEVE that Arwen would have to give birth in front of a crowd, or that Aragorn would pause while she's crowning to lecture a midwife on hygiene. And yet up until the OC leaves the Shire this is a very good fic! It falls off SUCH a cliff.

The Question by eyebrowofdoom
Elves, you know?

My note: I don't ship it because I love Legolas/Gimli and Aragorn/Arwen too dearly, but this is not romantic. Also, I'm weak for anything tagged 'snooty elves'.

Let The Memories Be Good by lotrfan
"Gimli, I have an idea."

He couldn't remember when he had first heard the Elf say those words or at what time point hearing that phrase had first brought a twinge of misgiving.

It was long ago, of that he was sure.

Sansûkh by determamfidd
The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors. The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.
