Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Warrior's Proud by Ellfine Rated: Teen [Reviews - -5]
Summary: Getting cut down during the Battle of Helm's Deep was only the beginning of Haldir's problems
Recommended by: Quantumphysica
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! :)

Carmina Brethilia by Robinka Rated: Mature [Reviews - -17]
Summary:

Or an account of the battle in the forest of Brethil as seen by Beleg Cúthalion, told in two parts.


Recommended by: Himring
Recommender's comments:

This story is an unusual take on an unusual subject--and as such highly interesting!The protagonist, as often in Robinka's stories, is Beleg. But not necessarily the same Beleg  we  already know: this, I suspect, is one of the toughest Belegs around.  Although very much a Sinda and in touch with nature, he seems unusually robust and soldierly. (So does Robinka's Mablung.) This is definitely a Beleg who has spent a lot of his time patrolling the borders against orcs and other malefactors, dealing with a merciless enemy. Yet Robinka's Beleg by no means lacks a heart; he has a knack with children and is ready to sympathize with the young and weak. The Battle of Brethil is an episode in the history of Beleriand that is often overlooked--and yet it is not only the exception to the rule that Thingol withdrew his troops from any major involvement in the struggle against Morgoth after the first battle of Beleriand: if we believe what the Silmarillion text says, this was in fact the battle that stopped Morgoth's troops advancing further into Southern Beleriand at the time of the Dagor Bragollach and therefore an important event at a time of great turmoil in the history of Beleriand.The battle of Brethil--or rather the friendship between Doriath and the Haladin of Brethil more generally-- is also the exception to Thingol's general rule of non-involvement with Edain (before his daughter took a hand, that is). It is not often one sees a lot of the Haladin, except for Haleth herself. Robinka devotes considerable attention to the Haladin community, as observed by Beleg as a friendly outsider, and to the characters of Halmir and Haldir. We also get a glimpse of young Hurin and Huor. This all might sound like a very masculine proposition. But in fact the story features not one, but two strong original female characters. Beleg's love interest may be involved in the gentler pursuits, such as cooking and library work, but she is still headstrong and independent-minded. And Beleg's female colleague Sullinn is a formidable Ranger, who is capable of giving Beleg a run for his money!Chapter One deals with the run-up to the battle. As such it begins cheerfully, even humorously, but the tension mounts and in the description of ugly incidents such as happen in real war, Robinka pulls no punches. She should be strongly encouraged to write the next chapter and give us the battle itself.
