Faithless Is He That Says Farewell When the Road Darkens - bunn - The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
“Gil-galad and Finarfin think it’s worth the risk,” Elros explained. He nodded to some Men who were loading tools from a workshop onto a donkey cart. “With luck the shock will be the breakthrough that Finarfin's part of the Host of Valinor needs to make it across the River Sirion at last. And we do at least know what we’ve got to prepare for, this time. Ulmo has promised the Falas will be safe, but the Isle of Balar is right in the way. It’s bound to sink.”

They turned a corner and went through a high, finely-carved archway into a quiet paved courtyard. As soon as they were around the corner and out of sight of the crowds, Elros whipped around to face his brother.

“What are you doing here?” he hissed. “We drew straws. I’m looking after the Edain. You were supposed to be looking after them!”

Elrond looked at his brother unhappily. “Not any more.” he said. “I had to leave. There was no choice. They gave me a warning. You know they always give a warning, first. I wasn’t going to make the mistake of ignoring it.”

So Shall The Rightful King Be Known - bunn - The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
“There’s flame and shadow in your eyes.” he said. He unfolded onto his knees and looked hard into his brother’s face. “And something looking back at me.”

“Well of course there is,” Maitimo said. “I’m still in here, fool! I can’t get rid of flame and shadow that Morgoth forced on me. But I can use it against him. Everything he did to me, I shall turn back on him.”

Makalaurë grimaced, and then nodded and sat back down. “All right. What do you want me to do?”

“I need you to help restrain our brothers. I’m going to waive the claim of our House to the kingship.”

Makalaurë came to his feet in one swift outraged motion. “ What? But Father would...”

Maitimo interrupted him. “Father left us his Oath to fulfil. We have no hope of fulfilling it if we try to cling to anything we don’t need. We don’t need the kingship. We need the Silmarils, and revenge. To get that, we must have unity. The Noldor won’t unite behind a king that left most of them in Araman. I need guards, here, to protect me from my own people.”

Common Counsel - bunn - The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
Dear Maedhros

I did not get butted by a goat because of my extreme agility and enormous supplies of dignity. So there. I have sent three goats to Turgon in Vinyamar though, and will let you know if he shares my talents.

I am back from Dor-lómin and about to set off on patrol (wearing the scarf made from the wool of your warlike sheep) so I’ll keep it short.

My father asked me to find out if you might be persuaded to come to Hithlum to take counsel this autumn. He’s not sending you an official letter because that would look like an order and it isn’t one. Only if you are well enough and can reasonably leave Himring for a while.

I know it’s a long way, but surely your brothers can cope without you for a while? If this is possible, let me know when and I’ll come out with an escort to meet you.

I miss you too.

Love, Fingon

Feast - emilyenrose - The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
“I am tormented,” Maedhros said confidingly to Fingon. “The Enemy’s table was atrocious and now they won’t give me anything but soup. You owe me for many years of sweets slipped under the table, cousin - will you be my rescuer again? I will trade you half the kingdom I don’t have for a loaf of bread and a bowl of stew.”

“Don’t let him wheedle you into it,” said Maglor. “He will be sick. It’s a waste of stew.”

“I have starved, and now I would feast,” Maedhros said. “Will you deny your king?” He grinned. “Or is this just a decorative hat after all? In that case I would prefer one that keeps the rain off. Tell Curufin.”

Laundry Day [Tolkein fic by lintamande, on tumblr]
Nerdanel usually continued sculpting right up until the moment she went into labor. Other chores, though, she happily handed off to her husband and her children in the sixth month of her pregnancy. Laundry, cooking, cleaning…

“It’s counterproductive,” said Tyelkormo to Maitimo, because that was how you had to phrase arguments if you wanted Maitimo to be convinced. “Instead of eagerly awaiting the arrival of our new brother, we resent him for having already been an enormous amount of work. And then when he arrives and inevitably keeps us all up screaming and crying, there’s even more work. And after that, when he’s been nothing in our lives except an outrageous imposition, we’re expected to do the tour of important people and coo about how much we like him!”
