until the end, still driving herself, living independently, going to choir practice and her church groups. It was sad to lose her, of course, but TBH it sounds like a good way to go.

Title: People of the Ice by Fadesintothewest
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 17]
Summary: Hi I am back!!!

The Fëanorians find that their kin who crossed the Ice have been utterly changed. Fingon is utterly changed. All of them are.

This Fingon-centric story is an exploration of Fingolfin's host and the impact of the Grinding Ice on who they became as a people once they arrived to MIddle Earth. They are often portrayed as not being changed much by the Helcaraxë. This story presents a different interpretation, exploring the darker edges of elven psyche. In attempt to reconcile some gaps between canon and the length of time it takes Fingon to go out and rescue Maedhros this story explores why that time elapsed. Get ready for a not so nice Fingon, hardened by the many losses of his People and the betrayal Maedhros.

Title: Not so Valiant not so Wise by Fadesintothewest
Rated: Explicit [Reviews - 7]
Summary: *EDITED (2015)*An unlikely secret night of passion threatens the relationship between Fingon and Turgon. One possible scenario on why the relationship between Fingon and Turgon is estranged. Though I am not committed to the notion that they are, I am having fun breaking some rules. Do not expect nice elves here. They are not. The Noldor here are more akin to the decadent French aristocratic society before their downfall.

While this story focuses on Fingon, I do take the time to explore the lives and character of the female characters that we know so little about; thus I explore a bit of gender politics in Aman that is wrapped up in deeper cultural and political issues. Perhaps there is a bit of George RR Martin intrigue, sex, and the like!

These elves are fallible, complex, and oh so damn lovable!

This story contains slash so if this is not your cup of tea you might not want to read.

*I have gone through and edited the story, making the storyline tighter, and fixing some chapters that needed more organizing in the narrative. I love this story. It's my most favorite one I've written thus far.

Title: Love Always by Fadesintothewest
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 7]
Summary: Story Summary: Written in honor of Halloween/ Day of the Dead/ Samhain and other such practices that grew out of the Harvest feasts, and/or marked the beginning of winter, the earth’s slumber. Some say it is a time when the veil between worlds is thinned, and so it is in Aman. But our favorite elf finds himself put out by his growing responsibilities as a Noldorin Prince, so much so he wishes himself a lady. Ask and ye shall receive it is said, but be wary for wishes that come to pass may not be all that is desired.

The origins of this story was from a blog that requested either Maedhros or Fingon as females. This is my attempt. A silly little story I am enjoying writing. Nothing too deep. I hope it is entertaining.

Summary: Story of the Royal Family of Mirkwood and a young woman who appears mysteriously and has a great vantage point from which to observe both the light and dark moments of life in Mirkwood. Explores Silvan/Avari culture. In my mind and in this story the wood elves are what outsiders would describe as feral, but also joyful despite the great losses they endure, a glimpse of what we see in The Hobbit.
