Most of my teachers were lovely - there were just a couple that were not nice.

I hate hearing about teachers who ruined a child's interest or confidence or curiosity- as a teacher myself, it actually hurts to think how someone has done that. It doesn't happen much now.

I was a very quiet student, easily cowed and very much a loner, nevertheless I was a good student, but he was not a nice teacher :(

Spiced, what a horrible experience about that teacher! That would drive anybody off the subject, I'd imagine.

To Wait For You by Ryo Rated: Explicit [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Be careful with what you ask of the Valar for your wish can be granted.
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.)

Lost Tales From The Silmareillion: Morgoth In Equestria by Imperius Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -3]
Summary: The reign of Morgoth in Arda is over. He has been defeated by the Host of Valinor and the Valar have bound him once more in the chain Angainor and cast him through Doors of Night into the Void. There he has drifted for many long ages, pondering his deeds and his defeats until Il
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!

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! :)

Labyrinth by GreeneKangeroo Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - -6]
Summary:

As his father rides to defend his small fiefdom, Maeglin creates beauty. Silmarillion oneshot.


Recommended by: Urloth
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.

To See A World by Nightwing Rated: Teen [Reviews - 0]
Summary: Pre-LOTR. Injured and alone, Legolas and Aragorn are forced to take refuge in a wintry foreign land. But when darkness encroaches from within and without, they learn that refuge can become a deadly trap.
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments: A beautiful Aragorn/Legolas adventure/friendship. Nightwing is a truly wonderful writer; this story is filled with pathos and danger. One of the first fanfic stories I ever found, and one which made me like Aragorn more than decades of reading the books (or seeing the films. he's just not a favorite of mine.)
It is the one genfic I can keep reading, probably because the relationship between Aragorn and Legolas is so lovely. Unfortunately, it has not been updated in years, (although I recently heard from the author and hope she will return to it.) but it is still well worth the read, as it is a long story and about two-thirds complete.
