woman into bird by arriviste
Elwing the White, her Flight; an image for story, for song, for painting and for stained glass. A woman on the edge of a cliff, a woman suspended in the air, a woman diving into the water like a silver knife.

The Captured Prince by adlanth
He paced and prayed, he screamed and sang to himself, he slept and woke; he marked the passing of days and hours by the motion of a single square shaft of light across the stone floor of his cell; he hoped and despaired with every cycle that it made, until one day the pattern was broken, and a shadow fell unexpectedly; and he looked up, and saw, crouching on the wide stone sill of the one, high barred window, a child.

Thranduil in Amon Ereb.

And by their blazing signify that a great princess falls, but doth not die by TheLionInMyBed
Elwing was a scion of Luthíen who braved gods and death itself for love. She was the daughter and granddaughter of murdered kings, a refugee and ruler, mother, wife and, once, sister.

When her father's killers asked, begged, commanded that she give them the silmaril, everything she was demanded refusal.

She knew that there would be a price for that though she did not, perhaps, realise quite how high it would be.

Quenta Narquelion by bunn
"...[Fëanor] died; but he had neither burial nor tomb, for so fiery was his spirit that as it sped his body fell to ash, and was borne away like smoke; and his likeness has never again appeared in Arda, neither has his spirit left the halls of Mandos."

What if his spirit has never left the halls of Mandos because it never went there in the first place?

Fëanor, dead, watches the First Age unfold, and his children endure. A detailed account of Maedhros and Maglor's time on the Eastern Front of the War of Wrath, with Elrond and Elros growing up.

The Starless Road by Emilyenrose
"Maedhros sought destruction body and spirit, and found both. When Mandos summoned him, he refused, and first of them all he has been taken by the void that they swore themselves to. He is not in the world, and will not come again. Deeper darknesses are there than that which Morgoth made below Thangorodrim!” Fingon paused and looked at Finrod. “Should I not then have killed him as he asked me?”

“No!” said Finrod, but Turgon said nothing.

Sam grew even more upset. “Now that’s not right,” he said, “that can’t be right! Just or not – and I don’t know that it is, begging your pardon, sir – still, no story should end that way!”
