Bringing Gifts by Deborah

A wise man follows a star and finds what he least expects in this moving vignette

[Added 16/12/2003; Character Piece; <1000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maglor, Historical figure]

Captain Tinkerbell by Lipstick

Believable and almost unbearably poignant. Set in the First World War, but I won't spoil this lovely story by revealing any more of the premise -- suffice to say, it comes highly recommended

[Added 09/09/2003; Drama; 1000-2500; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maglor, Historical figure]

Chance's Strange Arithmetic by Ithilwen

Strange meetings in the trenches of the Somme. Thoughtful and profoundly moving

[Added 09/09/2003; Drama; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Maglor, Historical figure]

Lasciate Ogne Speranza? by Finch

A believable and very moving view of Maglor in not-quite-modern times. The 'Maglor in History' challenge has been extraordinarily productive, and this story is among my favourites
