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.

The Guardian of the Walls by deborah_judge
When Aredhel set off from Gondolin to find her cousin Celegorm, she did not know if she intended to tear his clothes off or beat him senseless. Or both, in no particular order.

She had learned how to curse his name while crossing the Grinding Ice without even the supplies that were on the ships he had burned, and had done so since at every opportunity. Almost as often as she made love to him in her dreams, or remembered the sweetness of his touch long ago in Valinor, before the ships burned, before the blood of Alqualonde reddened her sword.

Calls Every One Home by lise
He had sent his squires away to ready themselves and was just now fitting the last pieces of armor to himself, clasping the greaves over his forearms, looking at the full length mirror perfect reflection of himself as he let his arms fall. The Nauglamir glittered around his neck.

A Boy, A Girl, And A Dog: the Leithian Script by Philosopher at Large
The Tale of Tinuviel, dramatized script version. Originally by Philosopher at Large, acquired from rustbucket.net, now formatted and reposted here by me, notes and cast list intact.

My notes: I hated this so much, why am I linking it? I usually only pin things I might want to reread. partly because it was so long. recognise my hatereading accomplishment. that is time I will never get back that MIGHT have been spent on useful things. partly because the Beren/Luthien pickings are slim. partly because it is a Silmarillion fandom classic and it ought to be represented here, I suppose.

why did I hate it? everyone is awful. there is none of the magic of Tolkien. the writer is so extremely a self-conscious male ~intellectual~. none of the actually good parts of leithian appear: did you want Beren and Luthien falling in love? Thingol's ultimatum? Beren and Finrod and the Ten fighting Sauron or in the dungeons? Luthien saving Beren and casting the Tower down? ANY of the silmaril quest or lulling Morgoth or fighting thuringwethil or their costumes? any of their brief marriage the first time around? beren's sick silmaril burn to thingol? Beren fighting Carcaroth and dying?

NONE OF THAT IS IN HERE. This is just endless quarrelling conversations that the writer thinks are cleverer than they are where people talk about these events after they happen. it is hell. most of this fic occurs in a waiting room in the halls of Mandos and really. that's all you need to know. this fic is the equivalent of sitting in the waiting room somewhere. forever. while wanting to kill everyone else in the room because they're all unbearable.

After the Fire by lise
The Dagor Bragollach is lost, the Pass of Aglon has been breached, and Curufin and Celegorm are fleeing south to an uncertain destination.

And if that's not misfortune enough, it can always get worse.

The Long Road by kaz
Elladan really wasn't planning to get thrown back in time to Beleriand, but the world didn't bother asking his opinion. Now, he struggles to find a way back home as the First Age unfolds around him. The host of newly acquired relatives, including a great-uncle with a flair for dramatics, sons of Fëanor who insist on being people rather than historical villains, and a several-times great-grandmother with some unexpected skills, just make it more overwhelming.

Full Brother In Blood by oshun
Written to satisfy the following prompt: "Fingon and Turgon, younger, in Valinor. You hint about their relationship--or lack thereof--a lot, and I find myself thinking on this a lot when reading your stories. So I'd like to see a scene between them. It doesn't have to be serious or even revealing; just a hint of what there was between two brothers in Aman."

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 Sovereign and the Priest by DawnFelagund
Long ago in Valinor, Finrod and Celegorm faced opposing expectations, one a symbol of Eldarin potential and the other abandoned to a life of leisure, and neither fully certain of his place among the Noldor. Now, after the Dagor Bragollach, their fates collide when Celegorm and Curufin, fleeing the destruction of their realm, take harbor in Nargothrond. As both work to mend the myriad hurts between their houses, each discovers a secret about the other and, most surprising of all, the desire that grows between them. But as each of their oaths begin to call, their growing love might not survive the inevitability of their fates.

Celebrimbor considers, briefly, whether he might go and live on the Helcaraxë, which he has never seen but is given to understand is empty of people and full of bears. Maybe one of them might like to eat him. Maybe then he will never, ever have to think about his father asking his uncle to talk to him about "the way of things" in a tone that suggests he is clueless about them ever, ever again.
