I am perfectly happy for people to remix, write fic, make art, podfic etc. Just link back to here so that any-one can see I have given permission.
Thank-you :) (Obviously this does not apply to taking the work, making it into an o-fic, and selling it, but rather in the realm of fandom!)

Dark Prince


Banner by Esteliel.


~The Valar will never act, never see justice done. Even I can show more mercy than they. And I have nothing left to lose.~



(Vanimr look-a-like by Kir Tat.)

Vanimr's Arda is a canon-based AU, which in this case means that Middle-earth history and canon characters written of are taken from the Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales, very occasionally from the History of Middle-earth books, and Lord of the Rings. My interpretation of the events and people are non-canon, as, of course, are the OC's. The Silmarillion is the main reference for events before the Third Age.

It may be worth saying here, that I do know canon, and have read Tolkien's works for many years, but my love is for Middle-earth and the Elves, (not particularly the way Tolkien wrote them) and I wanted to write what I believed lay behind the events in Tolkien's stories, and into the Fourth Age and beyond. I've developed my own fanon that I explore through my series. I see no point in 'penance-writing', following canon because it's canon. I know canon, and do not want to be straight-jacketed by it. My imagination takes me on different paths. Do not, therefore, expect canon Elves or adherence to LACE. I would like to eventually make my AU Elves more like to the dangerous, ambiguous Ljslfar of myth, living in some parallel dimension. I started writing when I was about ten, and wrote o-fic until the early 2000's, and moved on into fanfiction. I wanted to write within Middle-earth from age sixteen; nothing else really satisfied me.


I am pro-Fanor and have been for decades, and I love the Noldorin Exiles fiercely. This is shown in all my works.


Please heed the warnings and rating. This is Adult-rated slash AU darkfic (at least so some people tell me.) and incest is a thread throughout the stories.


I am not a good writer. I write a lot, which is not the same thing at all. I hope that if I keep writing, I may improve a little, but I believe writing is a gift, and if one does not have that gift, the best to be hoped for is to be able to produce something 'workmanlike'.I apologize in advance. I do go back and edit all the time, but I am trying to do that in sequence. Please do check out my recommendations, though. There are some wonderful authors on it.

The Dark Prince series is much faster-paced than Magnificat or Crucible. There's a reason for that: I wanted to write an AU that spanned thousands of years and then be able to go back and write within it, exploring it at my leisure, which results in more sprawling and longer stories within that framework.

~~~
Order of reading


The Dark Prince series:


Dark Prince, Dark Lands, Dark Blood, and Dark God.


Child Of Storms is Anwyn's story, in which I wrote a little, and takes place before Dark Lands.


The first story chronologically is: I Will Lead And Thou Shalt Follow, set in Valinor in the Elder days.


Magnificat of the Damned Book I: Starfall is First and Second age, written primarily from the point of view of the Noldor, and telling Tindmion and Gil-galad's story, but it overlaps with Vanimr's story, as they are the same 'verse.


Magnificat of the Damned: Book II. Resurrection, and Magnificat Of The Damned: Book III. Fire take place directly after Dark Prince, and tell of events that take place in the twenty-five years between Dark Prince and Dark Lands. They will probably overlap. (I changed the title of book 1 from The Power and The Passion, as I think this story may be four books long, so I wanted to split them under the same name and make them into a separate series.)


A Light In The East, and A Far, Fierce Sky are the first two stories in A Crucible Of Stars, a crossover between my Dark prince 'verse and Esteliel's Ethuil'waew, book I of her Anestel series. The timeline is changed, however, and it takes place approximately 500 TA, when Mirkwood was still the Greenwood.

Esteliel has very kindly created a Dark Prince Fanlore page for me.

I started reading Tolkien in the late 80's, and I write and love slash; I see it in Tolkien canon and always have. Reading the Silmarillion, I found myself thinking that between certain characters the UST simply seethed. Fanfic gave me a chance to explore my beliefs. (My absolute One True Pairing all these years is Fanor and Fingolfin.) I also love incest, twincest, angst, darkfic, conflicted relationships, BD/SM, kink and erotica, drama and mystery. Above all: passion. I

Please note: Y!Gallery contains Adult M/M imagery.






I cannot thank these authors enough for all the immense pleasure their works have given me. They have stirred me, twisted me into knots, saddened me to tears, made me shout at the screen in approbation or abuse, made me think deeply about the characters and their personalities and motivations. These writers have given vivid life to both canon and original characters to a degree that is rarely seen in published works.

Recommended fanfiction master-list is here.


These are mostly long works or series with the exception of a couple, as these authors excel in creating their own world within Middle-earth and fill the breadth and space longer works permit with the power of their stunning imaginations and wordsmithing.

The links go to the authors bio or home-page, as their works have different ratings. Please heed these.


Esteliel.


Esteliel has hooked me completely from since first reading her. Her series is not all about sex, despite the warnings and ratings, in fact it is a very skillful and thought provoking look at what is basically Stockholm Syndrome and how and why that can develop into love. The way the characters relationships develop from a terrible beginning is enthralling, deeply moving, and sympathetic, steamy and addictive. Any-one perceiving at this as just a kinky slash fic has missed the point entirely. I love this series. Highly recommended.


oshun

To me A New Day, (MEFA 2008 First Place, Longer Works: General) is the ultimate Maedhros and Fingon' story. It's the story I wanted to read about them when I was still in my teens. She has a talent for writing characters and settings which make me think I open a door into that time and place and just sit and watch the tale play before me.

Elfscribe


Elegy For Nmenor is superb.

Dawn Felagund.
A superb writer, coiner of the phrase 'Tolkien Heretic', founder of
The Silmarillion Writers Guild.

Ziggy

I am such a fan of The Sons Of Thunder, which takes place during the War of the Ring. All the characters are excellently written, beautiful descriptions, but her guilt-lust-grief tormented Elrohir naturally draws me. I love tormented characters and this story is rich in pathos.

Anarithilien

Dark Forest.

Rating M. Genres: Drama, Angst. Slash.

When Legolas and Gimli venture into Fangorn, little do they realize the danger they are about to meet or the wretched secrets they will uncover from ages past.

Darth Fingon


Silmarillion based fanfiction, such as You Live Your Life In The Shadow Of The Mountain.


Pink Siamese.


Pink is a phenomenal writer, frighteningly talented. She also writes the steamiest het erotica I have ever read. Reading her over a year ago confirmed in me that some of the best writing is on the net, not published and on bookshelves.

< Pandemonium_213

Tolkien's science does not work. :) In the Pand!verse it does. :D
Some stories take such a different approach to Tolkien that they force those of us who like reading outside the box to stretch the boundaries of our imagination even further; to lay aside the 'absolutes' that we *know* within Tolkien's writing. Pandemonium's works portray Sauron in a way that is impossible to reject, a creator, a scientist, a genius. Her science is written in a way that even I can understand and both her original and canon characters characters are vivid and human and *real*.(Sauron/Marc Remillard. That is so perfect I don't even know where to begin !)



Alpha Ori


I am reading The Protege a slash story that is beautiful and unusual, feeling like myth.




Aislynn Crowdaughter

Slave-fic, an evil Elrond, a sadistic Aragorn, Legolas bound by a frightful spell? How does it work? It works because the AU constructed by the author ticks like a Swiss watch. It is reasoned and logical - and very disturbing.


Ignoble Bard.


I love Ignoble Bard's slash. It is elegant, erotic and beautiful. His Fait Accompli had me gaping at the screen at the end, I was so floored. He simply never fails to produce profoundly lovely erotica.


Beruthiels_Cat's stories, and some which were part of my Dark Prince, are or will be available on her Deviant Art account in the future, I believe. Certain ideas, pertaining to embodiment of the Flame Imperishable, the Great Music and the latter fate of the Silmarils are the intellectual property of Beruthiel's_Cat, who has been kind enough to allow me to use them, as they fit in with earlier hints and ideas in the stories. Thank-you so much.


Esteliel, Loesvalthen, BeruthielsCat and myself also co-mod the Tolkien-Elfslash Group on Deviant Art, for both art and fanfiction.


I'm posting things in memory of my Grandmother, Edith Mary Lloyd who wanted me to try and improve and write a novel one day. Well, I have, in a sense, with the Dark Prince stories, at least it is something which I finished for the first time ever.
God Bless, Nan.

MEFA 2009 First Place winner in Genres: Longer Works: Incomplete.
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments: Occupying a 'niche within a niche' in the Silmarillion fandom, this incredible story tells of Sauron's capture by Ar-Pharazn, last king of Nmenor. Elfscribe's Sauron is brilliant, manipulative and beautiful, and the emerging story between Ar-Pharazn's lovely male courtesan Sla, and the king's page, Tign is filled with poignancy, danger and sensuality. These two young characters are Elfscribe's original and the best OMC's I have ever read.

To See A World by Nightwing Rated: Teen [ - ]
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.

After a Lifetime by December Rated: Explicit [ - ]
Summary: When it all began, you simply took a blind dive into the unknown. But would have you offered your love to the one you worship, had you known the price he would have to pay for loving you back? Would you trust yourself to know between right and wrong? If you could see the hopeless end of your journey, would you still take the road? And when all was over, would you be blind to see a new road lying at your feet? Would you dare follow it? Would you, Faramir?
Recommended by: Spiced Wine
Recommender's comments: I really appreciate the way December consider the complexities of emotion inherent in an incestuous relationship. It's not something I see very often, and when it is written, people seem to overlook the emotional coils and prohibitions of such an attraction, when that is actually what they should focus on the most. It's really well done in this story.

The sex is revelatory and savage and beautiful, and the two brothers -- well, they go a long way to making me forget how they were in the films. This is Boromir and Faramir from the books.

Summary: FeatureThis does not pretend to be the story of the Nirnaeth Arnoediad. That is a vast tale of a battle to rival the Battle of the Somme in our own time, with all its moments of terror and heroism (plus dragons, balrogs, and the death of a king).
