A Boy, A Girl & A Dog: The Leithian Script Project. Act I: An Appointment in Menegroth, Act II: The Sojourn in Nargothrond, or Houseguests from Hell, Act III: Tinuviel at Bay: A Caccia of Beleriand by Philosopher at Large

A unique blend of humour & drama, cast in Shakespearean form with modern informal English and priceless anti-fanon characterisations -- P@L's take on Luthien & Beren's tale has simply got to be read to be believed. Acts I-III are complete and stand alone; Act IV languishes incomplete

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
