The Price of Vengeance universe by encairion
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.

The Revolutionary and the Usurper by encairion
The tale of the boy who stood up to change the world, and the half-brother who wanted to stand at his side, but if he couldn’t have that, let him have everything else.

The tale of Fëanor and Fingolfin.

My note: I nearly threw my phone when it ended where it did but turns out there's a million plus words of sequels on faerie.net.
