  1. Summary

    Stories about history and transmission of story in Middle-earth focussing on Bilbo Baggins in later life; his role as a scholar and Elf-friend after his adventure, and the writing that he did in Rivendell: 'Translations from the Elvish'; a work of great scholarship, compiled with the help of the Elves of Rivendell, which later passed to Elanor Gamgee and from there to Gondor. Some of the stories from the Silmarillion and the History of Middle-earth series are here re-told in a more hobbitish form.

    This series has no overall arc and will probably never be marked complete. Each of the stories is designed to stand alone, and I endeavour to make them canon-compliant in so far as that is possible.

  2. Summary

    Maglor’s fate as per the published Silmarillion was to wander alone along the shore, singing in pain and regret. That version is the one that Christopher Tolkien created by making a slight amend to reconcile Elrond as a child with the Sons of Fëanor, with Elrond from Lord of the Rings, the Herald of Gil-galad.

    This series occurs in an adjacent shade of Arda, and tells the story as per Tolkien’s version of the Silmarillion from 1937, which is slightly different to the published Silmarillion:

    Yet not all the Eldalie were willing to forsake the Hither Lands where they had long suffered and long dwelt; and some lingered many an age in the West and North, and especially in the western isles and in the Land of Leithien. And among these were Maglor, as hath been told; and with him for a while was Elrond Halfelven, who chose, as was granted to him, to be among the Elf-kindred.

  3. Summary

    I have plans to write more about the War of Wrath. Quenta Narquelion covers the Eastern front, the Feanorians and Belegost in some detail, but I have not included it in this series as it is slightly canon-divergent, being narrated by Ghost Feanor.

  4. Summary

    The main story in this series is Quenta Narquelion, which tells the story of how Fëanor, dead, refused the call to Mandos and watched his children endure the First age and the War of Wrath.

    However, since that story is from Fëanor's point of view, it doesn't cover all the possible viewpoints, so this series is just to bring together a few other stories that fit within the same universe but are seen through other eyes.

    The other stories are not essential to one another or to Quenta Narquelion, and I hope can also stand alone, but I thought some people might find it useful to have them collected together.

  5. Summary

    Stories about the House of Fëanor and the House of Fingolfin in the Halls of Mandos after their deaths.

    This series connects with the Return to Aman series about Elrond and Maglor coming back to Valinor after the fall of Sauron, but does not require it.

    Summary

    Fingolfin's son has given Hador Lórindol a kingly gift. Such a shame about that.

    A star falls from the sky, Belladonna Took finds a pretty mathom that will make a lovely souvenir, and Elrond gets some extremely unexpected guests.

    These are not unrelated events.
