Shadowmere by himring
There is some suggestion that Tirion continued to be inhabited after the fall of Numenor.
How did its inhabitants feel about the fact that Pharazon's army was buried so close to the city?

Calling Out (In Vain) by ncfan

What Is and What Should Never Be by kenaz
Ar-Pharazôn had been right the first count: whether in shackles or in silks, Mairon was not to be trusted. He had been very wrong on the second: it was not she who had been easily guiled. On the third...well, she would soon know for herself.

tar-miriel in valinor by simaetha
“I think it’s only proper to celebrate,” Míriel said, serenely. “My husband always so wanted to reach Valinor! I want to congratulate him. We can pour out some of the wine, even.”

Tar-Miriel picnics vengefully on the hills holding Ar-Pharazon and his men in eternal sleep.

The Embalmer's Apprentice by lyra
Faced with the choice between execution or working on the preservation of dead people, young Azruhâr finds himself drawn into the increasingly political struggle between faith and loyalty to the king, science and superstition.

My note: I'm amazed she hasn't filed the numbers off and published this as an excellent novel - Numenor is isolated enough from Tolkien's Middle Earth that not many strings would need cutting. Complete world and picture of Numenor as it was beginning its long fall and to resent elves and the Valar, to seek to conquer death rather than welcome it as the Gift.

The Eleventh by vardasvapors
To historians, in 1700 Second Age, Tar-Minastir of Númenor saved Middle Earth from the forces of Sauron. To Elrond Half-Elven, in 1700 Second Age, he reunited with his ten-times great-nephew, saw his brother's people achieve the zenith of their glory, and let slip more than he ought about his choice of immortality.
