Across Dark Waters by Zimraphel

Maeglin meets his match in this unique take on the Halls of Mandos, with a decided Greek flavour. Highly recommended

[Added 24/06/2004; Drama; 2500-6000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maeglin, Fëanor]

Confessions of a Sharp Glance by Maura Mellon

An excellent version of Maeglin's voice, and some very plausible insights into his character

[Added 06/07/2004; Character Piece; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maeglin, Eöl, Aredhel, Turgon, Idril Celebrindal, Tuor, Morgoth]

The Prince by Tyellas

'There were moments, Maeglin reflected, when it was mightily annoying to be the prince of Gondolin.' One of the most convincing views of Gondolin I've encountered, as Tyellas deftly creates an entire city, with politics & gossip, romance & rivalry, to surround her Machiavellian Prince

[Added 06/07/2004; Drama; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maeglin, Tuor, Idril Celebrindal, Turgon, Minor]
