Fëanorian marriages

This is where I collect in chronological order all those fics that I've written about the love lives of the sons of Fëanor which are loosely linked to one another, by employing the same characterisations and the same takes on the canonical yet completely unknown wives of Curufin, Caranthir and Maglor.

All of these work as independent pieces but might be more enjoyable when read in order.


Tolkien mentions that Curufin, Caranthir and Maglor were married (HoME XII) but he tells us nothing about their wives, not even their names. I'm filling in the blanks by giving these 'textual ghosts' names and voices and writing both happy and sad stories about their marriages.

I will add more fics to this series as I write and post them. I often don't write in chronological order, but I arrange fics chronologically in this series. Some fics are one-shots whereas others are much longer, but they all share the same characterisations, headcanons about family dynamics in the House of Fëanor and take on Noldorin society.

In the 'universe' of this series, Maglor marries first, then Caranthir and lastly Curufin. Maglor's wife is called Tinweriel and she is a musician, Caranthir's wife is Tuilindien, a linguist, and Curufin marries Netyarë who is a painter. Other members of the House of Fëanor also feature in the stories.

I use Quenya names in all of the stories that take place in Valinor. Reminders of the names can be found here.
