Wow! Congratulations to Alpha Ori, Spiced! I didn't even know she'd written a book. Good for her! Here's hoping she wins many more. What's the name of her book(s)?

Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 1]
Summary:

Tolkien wrote the long conversation between Finrod Felagund and Andreth of the House of Beor about the fates of elves and men that is called "Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth".

Title: Timeline of Himring 'Verse (I) by Himring
Rated: General Audiences [Reviews - 2]
Summary:

Because my long Maedhros saga (Gloom, Doom & Maedhros) is a chronological mess, I have occasionally thought of compiling some kind of timeline or plot overview.

Here is a quick dirty list that I started compiling at the end of 2013, but I only got up to Feanor's death before I started flagging. I've been meaning to continue and update it, but haven't managed to do so, although I haven't given up on it either.
