Title: Elegy for Númenor - Volume 1: Journey to Umbar by elfscribe New!
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 17]
Summary: Feature

The Númenórean King Ar-Pharazôn thinks he has won an easy victory when Sauron surrenders to him and becomes his prisoner. But the march back to Umbar with the conniving Dark Lord turns out to have many unanticipated twists and turns through a nest of politics and intrigue, including Sauron's attempted seduction of Ar-Pharazôn's favorite male courtesan.

This is volume I of a planned trilogy. An epic tale of political intrigue, the desire for immortality and love, sorcery, hubris, loyalty, lust, and catastropic amounts of water.

Title: Where the Shadows Lie by ziggy New!
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 137]
Summary:

Not only the Three survive Sauron's fall, and not all darkness is vanquished. Sequel to Sons of Thunder. Warnings: loads of slash, dark lust, non-con/dubious consent, Sons of Feanor, dodgy Science.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

The One Ring has been destroyed and Sauron banished to the Dark with his own Master, Morgoth. But not all the Rings were destroyed with it; the Three made by Celebrimbor to counter the One are free now and there are artefacts still in the ruined cities of both Mordor and Eregion. And the fate of those lesser Rings is not known...yet. Against this, Legolas and Elrohir struggle in their new found love and not all is smooth. By any means.

Title: Summer Heat by Glorfindel
Rated: Explicit [Reviews - 44]
Summary:

A modern day, elves who never sailed, detective story in the style of film noir.

Erestor was the most evil elf in Gondolin and Imladris, yet he managed to hide it so that only a few saw him as he really was.

Glorfindel was his lover who thought that he had escaped Erestor forever after the ringwar.

Neither elf sailed and by chance they meet up in modern time. Glorfindel is a detective, constantly creating new identities for himself, and Erestor was until five years before, a hardened criminal who killed for fun. Now he seeks Glorfindel again with promises that he has changed.

A puzzling trail of bodies appear over the next few days and it seems Erestor is to blame for killing them, but exactly how many murders did he really commit, and also, who tried to kill Glorindel? Finally, how will Erestor flee when he hears the call of the sea with the police chasing after him?

Title: Melpomaen the Elfling by Glorfindel
Rated: Explicit [Reviews - 156]
Summary:



Melpomaen is a reborn elfling. He has two fathers because Saruman cursed one of them to fall pregnant to the next elf they saw - that unfortunate elf was Legolas. Mel was born with all his father, Erestor's, memories and intelligence and causes mayhem wherever he goes. He is probably the cutest, naughtiest and baddest elfling anywhere and yet he steadfastly refuses to believe he is anything but well behaved. Erestor is the only elf to have ever suffered a migraine; he hopes they will go when Mel is fifty and leaves home.

Wherever Mel goes there is uproar. Things become worse when he finds out that the Valar have already assigned him a soul mate and that a new baby brother is on the way, who is also reborn. Who are Mel's first set of parents and why does Saruman want to capture him. How did Mel manage to stab the wizard in the eye with an arrow and why is Sauron so interested in him? Also, why have the Valar assigned Gandalf to be his guide?

The story follows Mel through his, not always easy, childhood until he becomes an adult, finding out about his true origins on the way. Will he choose to be good or will he embrace evil? It could go either way.

Title: Dark Judgement by Glorfindel
Rated: Explicit [Reviews - 60]
Summary:

Told completely from Sauron's point of view. His recollections blur the lines between who is good and bad, and he is gleefully and brutally honest about his deeds as he recalls events from the past and present and gives his opinions on them.

This story begins before 'Summer Heat' and tells how Sauron became the Valar approved psychiatrist for all the elves damaged by him in Middle-earth.

The tale starts with Sauron being defeated in Middle-earth during the Ring War. He is removed to Valinor for judgement by the Valar and looks forward to spending eternity with Melkor in the void, but his time there does not go as planned and he desperately seeks to leave the horrors of his new existence. The Valar release him, but his punishment is far from over as they force him to re-evaluate his hopes for the future and explore how it feels to love another.

Then the Valar give him the evil, murderous, psychopathic Erestor to cure. Has Sauron finally met his match?

Title: House of Secrets by Glorfindel
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 5]
Summary: The orphaned Lindir is taken to live with Elrond and Celebrian, who raise him as their son. When Celebrían sails twenty years later, he feels her loss just as keenly as Elrond's children. Lindir's siblings are horrible to him but he has powerful friends. Plus, Lindir doesn't help the situation - he does magic research experiments on his siblings and sees no reason not to continue. Maybe that was why Gandalf sent him an amulet of protection, or maybe not.

On the way to Lothlórien, Lindir meets Radagast the Brown, who hints at secrets in Lindir's past. They are attacked by killer plants and spiders, and escape, only to find themselves deep in a dark part of the forest, facing the Witch King and his Nazgul.

How will Lindir survive?

Will help come in the nick of time?

What part will the mysterious amulet play?

Lindir's fate forces the family to confront two explosive, painful and unspoken secrets: the huge deception around Lindir's birth, twenty-five years previous, and his part in what happened to Celebrian.

Will the family survive or will it be blown apart?

Lindir tells it all, leaving no stone unturned, and as unrepentant as ever!
