in the family by elftrash
Celebrían’s parents were horribly in love, and difficult to divide on matters like bedtime and how far up a tree one should be allowed to climb. They didn’t agree on things like whether Celebrian should be allowed to learn things from Cousin Celebrimbor in the forge, or whether Dwarf friends should be invited to dinner, but they never argued about it in front of her. They had conversations with each other with their eyes, and in their heads, their faces calm, and then they always gave their answer together.

Hold Back the Dark by keiliss
Celebrian married Elrond because 1) her mother thought it was a politically astute move, 2) she was very fond of him and thought they could be mutual support, and 3) love, given time, can grow.

The Gathering Storm by idrils_scribe
A nameless evil spreads through the North, and the Elves must fight or be destroyed. When the Hidden Valley comes under siege, Elrond and Celebrían's children face wars of their own. Elladan bears the burden of his father's secret, Elrohir fights his greatest battle yet, and Arwen seeks her purpose in a darkening world.

The tale of the fall of Arnor and the rise of the Witch-king, as seen from Rivendell.

my note: ch. 1&2 of a new story in her Elrohir arc

undying by ecphrasis
Elrond Peredhel has finally arrived on the shore of the Undying Lands, but he cannot help but feel that he is a failure, as a lord, as a husband, as a father, as a man. He is content to live the rest of his days in obscurity, but when Maglor arrives, shipwrecked and half-starved on the shores of Valinor, Nerdanel and Maglor's wife beg him to advocate for the last of the Fëanorians, to prevent him from suffering the punishment of the Kinslayers. As he reveals his memories of Maglor, he reconciles with his wife, but will he manage to save Maglor from the vengeance of his kin?

And Fair She Was And Free by herenortherenorfar
"You are the forest, Nimrodel. The light that filters through the leaves, the starlight in the pools, the flowers. I look at you and I see the earth, black and red and white. I see the flowers, elanor and niphredil. The strength of stone and the transparent delicacy of the spring tadpoles. I did not think much of being a prince of this place before you taught me how to love it.”

my note: like some of her other fic, a little clumsy but always thoughtful about canon and with beautiful imagery.

Cornflowers in Belfalas by bunn
Just after the fall of Eregion and the death of Celebrimbor, Celebrían came to Imladris and met Elrond for the first time. Elrond first saw Celebrían then and loved her, but 'said nothing of it'. But how did things seem to Celebrían ? And how did things go, over a thousand years later, when Elrond finally told Celebrian that he loved her?

Sequel to 'Coming to the Valley', itself following on from 'Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens' which is a sequel to 'Quenta Narquelion'. They're each close enough to canon to stand alone but this one does benefit from having read 'Coming to the Valley'.

Under Strange Stars by Idrils_Scribe
Barely a long-year after the Last Alliance, all is not well in Imladris. Elrond's household has been dealt a crippling blow: a very young Elrohir has disappeared. After decades of false leads he is found in the Far South of Middle-Earth. Can Glorfindel rescue the House of Earendil once more? His task is not an easy one: Elrohir has no memory of who he was, and little interest in leaving his people's fight against the Black Númenóreans of Umbar ...

My note: definitely enjoying the third story in the series the most, but the first two are good. I like stories that look at the strangeness/uncanniness of elves, and a Peredhel living among humans and finding out that he's half-elven and returning to that culture is really neat. Plus the body horror of regrowing teeth, etc.

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.

A loss of something ever felt I by arriviste
It was the Silmarils that had sent Fëanor on his mad way to Beleriand like a falling star, pulling all the youth and brightness of my life in a long tail after him; and the very Silmaril Elwing and Ëarendil brought here now had drawn Finrod my son into darkness and death, and torn him to pieces.

"To be fair, that was the wolf,” Finrod said.

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.

ONE AND A HALF MILLION WORDS

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.
