    Summary

    Better to remember them in their summer when they possessed the tender hearts of children who loved so easily. Better to remember them in their autumn when they burned bright and laughed their defiance in winter's face, too full of fire to feel its coming bite. Better to remember them when the light in their eyes had been the ardor of their hearts, not the fever-light of a despair so deep it birthed monsters.

    But the deeper the darkness, the brighter the dawn.

    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, Curufin and Celegorm in the Halls of Mandos, but it can stand alone.

    Summary

    "Men..should have a virtue to shape their lives, amid the powers and chances of the world, beyond the Music of the Ainur, which is as fate to all things else" (Quenta Silmarillion, Chapter 1). A mortal woman is brought to Rivendell for healing in the summer of 3018, and thus becomes entangled with both Men and Elves in the events of the War of the Ring. How will destiny and choice shape the lives of the two Kindreds?

    This novel-length story travels from Rohan via Rivendell to Gondor and back again, twining itself in and out of the canon events of LoTR as it goes. Gap-filling, drama, humour, a dash of angst and - eventually - romance between the OFC protagonist and a canon character (so don't say you weren't warned!)

    Rated General rather than Adult, but should be considered PG-13 for, in later chapters, some fairly explicit descriptions of the aftermath of battle and for some (non-graphic) sexual content.

    Thanks to the kind offices of Altariel, e-book versions are now available; [links no longer active -- Archivist]
