Rec List: Short Poems by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 0]
Summary:

Rec list originally compiled for B2MeM 2017, featuring short poems from earlier B2MeM events.

These are serious poems, that is, poems not intended to be humorous (B2MeM has also produced a splendid crop of humorous pieces).

Some of the poems are based on Lord of the Rings, others on the Silmarillion.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

The link list was originally compiled when B2MeM was still only on LiveJournal.

The community was later imported to Dreamwidth (with all entries, including the poems) and is set to continue on Dreamwidth.

The linked version above is on my Dreamwidth journal, with links still going to Livejournal.

Extracts from Erestor's Library Catalogue by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 0]
Summary:


Erestor tries hard to keep track of Rivendell's growing number of books. It can be a bit of a struggle, especially in March.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

This is a catalogue of fictional books added to Rivendell's library in fan fic, with names of authors and links to the stories, as well as details on the books (and a little snark by Erestor).

So it's basically a rec list for stories that feature invented books!

Most of the stories are from Back to Middle Earth Months 2015 and 2016, but it's a WIP.

Recommender's comments: One of my favourite writers and friends, Zoe Perdita, is currently writing a smutty fic between Thranduil and Bard. It's got a very cute storyline, too, and she's told me that a lot of sexy time is to follow, which in my opinion only makes me like it even more. Very well-written super angsty, I thought you'd perhaps enjoy it :-)

Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments:

A beautiful romance between Gildor Inglorion and Haldir of Lorien... Difficult characters, painful pasts, promises made long ago and wishes made not entirely from the heart complicate matters. The story has a sequel named "If You Go Away" and I truly recommend you reading that one too even though the story has a happy end in the first part already. All the angst and drama is simply too awesome to miss out on! 

(Also, this story features what is possibly my favorite characterization of Thranduil ever. And if you ever thought of him in a tub full of wine, do read this.)

The Boys of Summer by Keiliss Rated: Teen [Reviews - 0]
Summary: FeatureThis does not pretend to be the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. That is a vast tale of a battle to rival the Battle of the Somme in our own time, with all its moments of terror and heroism (plus dragons, balrogs, and the death of a king). This is just about Gildor, son of Lalwen, and Glorfindel of the House of the Golden Flower (which Gildor assures me sounds better in Quenya) and a little of their experience during those six days of horror.
Recommended by: Spiced Wine

Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments: The utter and completely unexpected awesomeness of this story hit me like lightning. It's about the most surprising crossover I've ever seen, and it's not half as cracky as it looks. It will coax a good laugh from anyone, that's for sure... but it's also really silm canon complaint (for as far as crossovers go) and it has quite a few really touching and insightful moments.
If you ever wondered what it would be like to drop the darkest of dark lords into the happiest place of the multiverse, disguised as a sarcastic white pony... then this is your read! Also, there are cameos of all Morgoth's "favorite" enemies, who get to happily watch everything from the Halls of Mandos...
(little note; the "sil-MARE-illion" spelling in the title is on purpose.)

Escaping Isengard by Zoop Rated: Mature [Reviews - -18]
Summary: At the end of despair, when all hope has faded, a woman facing the last moments of her life finds the will to survive rekindled by one whose kind robbed her of it to begin with. Now she must decide which evil is the lesser: stay with the beast, or risk worse by leaving him. She soon finds that the horrors she faced in Isengard were not reserved for those in the breeding pits alone.
Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments: This story is awesome and refreshingly original...
Featuring a Rohirrim woman enslaved by Saruman to serve in the "Breeding Pits" for the creation of his Uruk-Hai, and an Uruk who turns out to be far more than a monster, it has an unlikely cast but tells a surprisingly touching tale...
Also, I have to note that this story features a good amount of Black Speech expressions, for which I am the author eternally grateful. ;)

The Fire Dance by DarkDreamer Rated: Explicit [Reviews - -4]
Summary: Trust is not always easy to earn.
Recommended by: Quantumphysica
Recommender's comments: This is an amazing AU, addictive like a soap series and at least as dramatic!
"The Fire Dance" is mostly centered around Glorfindel and Erestor, but in fact it gives us a peak in the lives of all our favorite elves, who are conveniently heaped together in Imladris for the sake of storyline.

There is loads and loads of slash to be had, MPreg in all sorts and sizes, old traumas, lost loves, feuds unsolved, cultural differences, and a heap of Valar with odd habits to finish it off! This story combines beautifully as many genres as you can think of without coming over as unnatural; it's one of the best I've ever read.

To entice any future readers: ever wanted to see Elrond in a dress, or Child!Namo involved in a food-fight? xD
As you may suspect, this is as AU as it gets... but I promise you that it's worth it, and once you start reading you'll get sucked into the story right away!

Recommender's comments: Somehow, Haldir doesn't go to the halls of Mandos after dying at Helm's Deep... instead he gets transported through time to the First Age settlement Celos Galen in Beleriand.

This story features a period that -in my opinion- doesn't get enough fanfiction love most of the time, and the author combines good canon knowledge and writing skills to create a tale full of sympathetic and believable characters, touching moments, hilarious "culture shock" type situations, and a good dose of mystery. I love it! :)

Silm fic recs: review re-post project by Himring Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -3]
Summary:

Master list of a review re-post project on LiveJournal I completed in January 2013, which doubles as a list of Silm fic recs.
I re-posted one of my longer reviews per author. The earliest of these reviews are from the MEFAs in 2010, which means that the work reviewed is all fairly recent. The selection is rather idiosyncratic and a couple of the stories are perhaps only marginally Silm fic, but I can vouch for it that the stories are all excellent!

Recommender's comments:

An alternative take on Eol Moriquendi, Aredhel, and Maeglin. The same writer I recced before and for the same reason. I must quote from her again:

 the Silmarillion was written from the point of view of Noldorian scholars and translated centuries later by Bilbo Baggins. The Noldor were not the biggest fans of Avar elves like Eol.

Suspicious historial account is very suspicious.

Recommender's comments:

As said by the author: featuring a Maeglin who is not yet evil or crazed, and a father who loves him.

Becuase the popular fanon of unloved-father issue Maeglin can get to be a bit much. A beautiful introspective piece about Maeglin and what his life might have been like in Nan Elmoth growing up.

I like this version of Maeglin. I'm sticking with him.

Recommended by: mangacrack
Recommender's comments: It is the first story of a series, set in the Third Age while the Ring War is resurfacing. The absolutly lovely twist in the storyline: Maedhros survived, managing to stay in contact with Maglor and Elrond. Due to his status and his history it is still not a happy fic (or a slash one, only gen) but there beginning's of healing in the Feanorian's hearts and some endearing hurt/comfort moments.

I recommened the series (three stories so far, but ongoing) especially to those who like what-if fanfictions and those who love Maglor and Maedhros. Fans will get their share, simply for the fact that they are not dead for once and with the author's writing style the series leaves defintely an impression. Certainly I one could get addicted to.
