Aglarrâma by Zimraphel

This engaging vignette gives a rare glimpse of the last days of some of the ordinary inhabitants of Numenor, blithely going about their business as history prepares to overtake them

[Added 13/06/2005; Drama; 1000-2500; The Silmarillion; Characters: Tar-Miriel, Ar-Pharaz˘n, Sauron, OCs]

Confessions of a Queen Downfallen by Jen Littlebottom

The regrets of Tar-Miriel, last Queen of Numenor. Bleak, beautifully written and very believable

[Added 25/01/2004; Character Piece; <1000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Tar-Miriel, Ar-Pharaz˘n, Sauron]

Eleventh Hour by Zimraphel

Zimraphel's answer to why Tar-Miriel remained behind when Numenor fell. Eleventh Hour successfully lends flesh to the bare bones of Tolkien's narrative, and creates a sympathetic character for the doomed Queen

[Added 09/09/2003; Drama; 6000-20,000; The Silmarillion; Characters: Tar-Miriel, Ar-Pharaz˘n, Sauron, Elendil, Isildur, OC]
