Leaving Bliss by Penknife

'Grandpa Finny (and if you're confusing him already with Uncle Fenny and his brothers Fin and Little Finny, you aren't from Bliss yourself) was always keen on having sons. Definitely sons plural; he had his heart set on populating our little corner of Bliss all by himself.' Southern Gothic retelling of The Silmarillion, with Galadriel as a small-town Southern girl. It works amazingly well

Oak and Willow by Marnie

Detailed scene setting and solid characterisations make this tale of Galadriel & Celeborn's courtship a winner. But it's more than just a romance -- Marnie sets the budding relationship against the interracial tensions seeded by the Noldor's arrival in Beleriand. The sequel, Seeds of Old Trees, tells the other end of their story

One Ring to Bind Them by Tyellas

An unusual and well-thought-out take on a strangely underwritten corner of canon, the making of the Rings. Consistently strong characterisation and gorgeous details make this a classic

[Added 09/09/2003; Drama; 20,000-50,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Celebrimbor, Sauron, Celeborn, Galadriel, Elrond, Minor; Adult]
