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?

The Cat Among the Elves by Lepidopteran (lepi)
Maitimo, as all the sons of Fëanáro, is not so easily forgiven. As his brothers are slowly reembodied after the end of the Third Age, Maitimo is given a different fate: his soul is placed in the mortal body of a cat. Unable to speak and trapped in a body foreign to him, Maitimo slowly begins to reconnect with his family— especially his beloved cousin Findekáno.

my note: follows Tolkien's earliest idea of how elf rebirth functions, which I find an uncomfortable concept

abundance (nerdanel) by lordnelson100
Of artistry, women's bodies, and loss.


Week after week, she worked at it, chisel in hand. Her hands were worn and bruised, the skin dry and cracked with stone dust, her nails broken. Her boots and leggings were covered in a thick paste of slurry, and even her tunic and other clothes were frankly unclean. Her hair was stuffed carelessly into a rough cap, from which it escaped in ragged ends.

In Darkness Crowned by avanti_90
It is written in the histories of the Noldor that when Finarfin son of Finwë became King in Tirion, he placed the crown upon his own head; that none of the Powers gave their blessing on that long night, and no other of the royal House stood beside the king; that in the square of Tirion the people wept in grief, and that the king wept with them, for their losses and his own.

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.

On the Mountain, Dark and Red by mirandatam
The stories – that’s what they have to be, for Nerdanel to not shatter like a piece of marble hit in the wrong place – the stories come out slowly. Alqualondë, the blood of the Falmari that stained the docks and the waves; the smoke rising over the horizon, the ships, the ships they had killed to obtain, burning to ash on the wrong side of the sea; Ñolofinwe, Findaráto and Artanis and all the rest, turning north to the Helcaraxë.

“Nobody blames you,” Arafinwë says when he sees her. “We all know how Fëanáro gets, how he can’t be turned away, no matter what. Nobody blames you.”

My sons are kinslayers, Nerdanel wants to say.

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.
