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.

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!

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.

This was always very incomplete and is basically just a snapshot taken in 2010/2011, but I thought it might interest some Maedhros fans out there.
