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.

Constellation by dawnfelagund
Upon the black sky of night, Varda scattered her stars, and we—the Eldar—held our hands to the sky and, with our fingers, made our first drawings to connect the constellations. I have heard him called dark, sullen, but when I look upon his face, I cannot see the darkness for the light in his eyes.

Caranthir and Rùmil speak without words. In the universe of Another Man's Cage.

Discretion by dawnfelagund
Privately, I sometimes thought that they must secretly despise each other. Here, each had been given so many special gifts, only to find them precisely replicated in the other. Beautiful, gracious, learned, and wise, such a fortunate accident should happen only once to any single family, and I often imagined that our family's boon that it happened twice in ours must be their most profound mischance.

The Choice of Spirits by dawnfelagund
Unlucky in love, Caranthir has settled into his lonely life in Middle-earth when love comes from the most unexpected of places: a mortal woman leading a band of refugees upon his land. In the love that grows between Haleth and Caranthir, the two cannot quite overcome the expectations of their people to be together fully, as they wish, and they face the inevitability of separation after death.

Another Man's Cage by dawn felagund
The fandom classic, pre-Silmarils, House of Finwë familydrama novel. Probably the most influential Silmarillion fic of all time, in terms of setting up Finwean family drama. Unfortunately the updated version is at SWG (linked), and the version on Ao3 is the unedited original from c.2005, so it should be read on SWG. I really do love this but in my head it's a prequel to later Beleriand-era Fingon/Maedhros.

The Republic of Tirion by Dawn Felagund
It is Valinor. It is the Fifth Age. Finally left to his own devices, Finarfin has decided to show his own radical streak, unkinged himself, and established representative democracy in Tirion against the will of the Valar. Adding to the crazy, all his exiled, slain relatives are beginning to return from Mandos. Tirion has developed suburban sprawl, and psychotherapists are in high demand.

NB: all names are in Quenya not Sindarin, so Fingon = Findekáno, Finrod = Findaráto, Caranthir = Carnistir, Maedhros = Maitimo or Nelyo, etc.

“Close in Friendship”: Homosocial Relationships in the First Age by Cinaed
"The collection gathers diaries, essays, and letters that span over a four thousand year period, beginning with Faramir of Ithilien’s private musings on the relationship between Maedhros and Fingon, and ending with a modern essay concerning a cache of letters recently discovered in the Gondorian Archives that sheds further light on several homosocial relationships, particularly amongst the Haladin."

Age Before Beauty by Emilyenrose
He seemed to feel her staring. He rolled over and regarded her, heavy-lidded. The eyes beneath the long lashes were glittering dark and knowing, the eyes of a grown man in the face of a beardless youth fair as a girl. It was the face of a young god or a dream-vision. Were they all like this, the Elves of this west country? Ye gods! This ill-spoken prince hadn’t even been the prettiest one at the party.
