  1. Summary

    A series of stories about Elrond's return to Aman at the end of the Third Age. All these assume that Maglor son of Fëanor was one of the other unnamed Elves who accompanied Elrond, Galadriel, Gandalf, Frodo and Bilbo on the ship when they left Middle-earth. Point of view is usually either Maglor or Elrond, but occasionally someone else (Celebrian, Lalwen, Nerdanel...)

    The first story, And the wind as sweet as honey in the mouth, is about Maglor and Elrond meeting again in the Second Age, rather than in Aman, but fits with the overall series otherwise.

    This series is connected with the Mandos series, about the experiences of Feanor, Fingolfin, Fingon and Curufin in the Halls of Mandos, but it can stand alone.

    All are welcome to remix, translate or reinterpret these works as they like. They are not my characters!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Beautiful writing as usual, and not quite as fluffy as you might think, there's a sharp bitter-sweetness to this story and a sense of mortality

    Summary

    As the Ringbearers prepare to depart from Middle Earth, one last question still weighs on Elrond's mind. Gandalf is not sure how to answer it. Six thousand years ago at the Havens of Sirion, the twin sons of Feanor found an answer for themselves: one that spoke of little pity and of no hope at all.

    Elrond is not willing to accept it, and Gandalf wonders.

    Amras's diary going down to Sirion, and then very much later, Elrond, Gandalf and a faint hope. I so love it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A modern-day Maglor story. This is beautifully written with some very engaging original characters, a lovely setting and is filled with a wonderful aching sense of nostalgia.

    Summary

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