  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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 for the first time 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!

    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    Here is the thing about grand cosmic plans laid out in song: they are difficult to follow, no matter how painstakingly you follow the steps, no matter how carefully you choreograph your every action.

    Here is the thing about young godling craftsmen: you can teach them to form mountain ranges with the sheer force of their will, or you can hover over their shoulder and watch every stroke of their hammer; you cannot have both.

    Here is the thing about admiration: his name is Admired, but nobody ever said who would admire him.
