elftrash + celebrimbor   88

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.

The Most Valuable Resource by Herenortherenorfar
The children of elves die easily, for their souls are thinly bound to their bodies and their fate is to endure but not survive. So when faced with a young hostage he really can't afford to let fade away, Sauron is very careful not to do anything too traumatizing.


Luckily Feanor's grandson is an interesting child to babysit.

My note: the summary sounded very Dead Dove, Do Not Eat, and yet somehow it was clever and even touching despite Sauron remaining in character (how??) and no little Celebrimbors were actually (seriously) harmed.

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.

And What Happened After by thearrogantemu
“My dear Mr. Baggins, you cannot possibly imagine I have brought you across the boundaries of the sundered world, bending every law of gods and men, over land and over sea and through the fathomless heights, for your health? Well, I did, of course I did, and I’d do it again. But it was not for your own good only that I brought you here. I have been on this world a very long time, Mr. Baggins, and if there is one thing that I have learned about the Wise and the Great, it’s that they benefit from the company of hobbits, and it’s the wisest and greatest who have most need of them."

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.


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.

Undying by tanarill
Elves were immortal, tied to the circles of Arda until the end of time and the Second Music. Only very few ever dared to love humans, whose quick-burning lives ended with a permanent separation - unless something extraordinary occurred. And only one ever dared love a dwarf.

Something extraordinary occurred.

My note: The Legolas in the Undying Lands casually fixing all the problems and feuds of Ages past and revitalising everything with Middle Earth knowledge story I never knew I always wanted. DEEPLY HELPS TO BE SILMARILLION-CONVERSANT. Or look up 'Celebrimbor', 'Narvi', 'First Kinslaying' on Tolkien Gateway.

The walls of Nargothrond echo with whispers and plots as the sons of Fëanor begin to gather power, but Celebrimbor soon begins to realise that his feelings for its king run deeper than he had thought possible. When the quest for the Silmaril and the Oath of Fëanor clash, tensions threaten to boil over into violence. Mistrusted by Orodreth and doubting his father and all that he has ever been taught to believe, Celebrimbor must make a choice that will change the course of his life forever.
