As Little Might be Thought by Deborah

Deborah's interpretation of the aside from The Silmarillion which contributes the title. Strong characterisations make this story compulsively readable. The tale is continued in When I am Wise, Naming the Stones & In the Seventh Age, also all well worth a look

[Added 16/12/2003; Drama; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maglor, Maedhros, Elrond, Elros]

Choices by Vorondis

Elrond and Elros debate their destinies. Of the many variations I've seen on this premise, this struck me as one of the most profound

[Added 18/10/2002; Character Piece; 1000-2500; The Silmarillion; Characters: Elrond, Elros]

If We Fall Anew by Le Chat Noir

Complex relationships in the aftermath of war. Convincing characterisation and very moving

[Added 18/10/2002; Drama; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Elrond, Maglor, Maedhros, Elros]

Leavings by Honesty

The One Ring and the sundering of bonds between elves and men. A compelling story with solid characterisations

[Added 18/10/2002; Drama; 20,000-50,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Elrond, Isildur, Cirdan, Glorfindel, Thranduil, Minor, OCs]

Of Bombadil and Peredhel by Meir Brin

Not many authors dare to attempt Tom Bombadil's voice, but Meir Brin succeeds amazingly well here, and the reader is treated to Entwives as well. A real hoot!

[Added 06/07/2004; Humour; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Elrond, Tom Bombadil, Goldberry, OCs]

Starlight by Tyellas

An interesting peek at life in Maedhros & Maglor's camp through the eyes of a youthful Elrond. Tyellas has a gift for creating rich and plausible details which make this story memorable

[Added 16/12/2003; Drama; 2500-6000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Elrond, Maglor, Maedhros, Minor, OCs]
