@Rina: I'd agree with Wombat. To write a story you need to get to that place where you have to write down your ideas - or explode. That's the way it works for me.

@Rina - it depends on the era and people you are interested in. A good idea is to think about what you would like to read - and if it doesn't exist, write it!

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.”~



(Vanimórë look-a-like by Kir Tat.)

Vanimórë'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 Ljósálfar 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-Fëanor 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 Tindómion and Gil-galad's story, but it overlaps with Vanimórë'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 Fëanor 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 Númenor 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 Pandë!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.

Title: ~ Magnificat of the Damned. Book III. Fire ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 336]
Summary:

They had been damned for their pride.
Damned for their passions.
Damned by the Valar and by Morgoth Bauglir.
Hated and envied by both.

~~~


Reborn into an older world and freedom, they had discovered that the jealousy of Gods does not fade, and that damnation has an agelong reach.

~~~


In dark Angmar, the Mouth of Sauron feeds his ambitions with unspeakable acts. Coldagnir the Balrog begins to learn what freedom is, whilst in New Cuiviénen the Noldor battle with their own pride and passions.

~~~


Every inner eye in the encampment was bent on the drama unfolding to the south, but Fëanor's mind seemed to focus all of them like a lens. There was no sound. This was the center. Fëanor's eyes were blank and blazing with impossible, unearthly light.

Summary:

A gift for Elfscribe, on the occasion of her 10th anniversary in fandom.

This is set within her wonderful Elegy for Númenor, which I highly recommend, and crosses over into my Dark Prince 'verse, although it is not necessary to know my work to read this.

Elements of the storyline come directly from Elegy. Sûla and Tigôn are elfscribe’s original characters, used with her permission. It is, however, AU to Elegy.

The summer after events in Elegy Sûla, once the King's courtesan, considers how his life has changed as Annatar's servant, not realizing the greatest change is yet to come.

It should have been a peaceful summer ride from Imladris to the High Pass to meet a small party from Mirkwood.
The Watchful Peace had ended, but the mountains still seemed safe enough for Melpomaen to be included among the warriors performing a mere courtesy.

Melpomaen had not left Imladris in many years, and anticipated an enjoyable excursion that hot and sultry summer. Instead he found himself facing danger, death and a mysterious personage he had heard of only in tales.

This story is for Dapperscavenger, who asked for a Vanimórë and Melpomaen story on my offer of a 5000 words or less slash fic on the Live Journal Help Pakistan Fandom Auction.

Title: ~ Earthblood ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 15]
Summary:

~ After the Last Alliance, Vanimórë traveled deep into the Harad, to the great desert trade-city of Sud Sicanna. He took the throne with violence, slaying the corrupt Sultan; he meant to rule until Sauron took form again and called him back – as Vanimórë knew he would.

Nowhere, even in the South, whose people worshiped Morgoth and Sauron, were women treated so brutally as in Sud Sicanna, almost, Vanimórë thought, as though they were feared.
In the temple, overlooked by a statue of Melkor, lay a great stone used as an altar of sacrifice in blood rituals dedicated to the world's darkest, oldest God. The Azanti tribe said that before Men awoke he, whom they named the Black One Whom Enslaves, murdered the Mother of the Earth upon it.

Vanimórë came to know that something had indeed happened in that place, something so terrible it echoed through time.

Nothing in Vanimórë's fated life was chance. Something had drawn him to the wealthy, vicious city, something that knew whom and what he was...

A great horse leaped past them, galloped straight toward the altar, straight at Mokar. The rider's hand brought the stallion back on it's haunches, steel-shod forefeet raking air, before they came down with a clash on the stone.

Rated: Mature [Reviews - 80]
Summary:

Vanimórë's Imperium rises in the south, bringing order in the wake of conquest, and beyond it's might the Re-united Kingdom thrives in peace. Gil-galad returns to Lindon with a youthful Fëanor who has his own power and destiny. Yet an evil undermines Vanimórë's rule, and taints the kingdoms beyond. His subjects believe their Emperor demands blood sacrifice and name him the Dark God.
And at the end there will be sacrifice indeed, and a breaking of the heart...

Although he no longer possessed physical form he felt a hand, strong as steel grip his, the touch of a mind filled with fire.

I am with thee! Fëanor, shining like the Silmarilli.

I have thee! Glorfindel's golden storm-aura.

Now the darkest of powers seek to show Vanimórë that his path was laid before him long ago, and that his destiny is to aid Morgoth's return before the Dagor Dagorath, the Last Battle at the end of the world.
If he falls, there is no way back.

Fëanor's eyes glowed in the red-black which emanated from the figure. His sword shone white as he stepped forward.

''I have – long desired this, Jail Crow!'' The words were exultant, his smile beautiful.

Title: ~ Magnificat of the Damned Book I: Starfall. ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 88]
Summary:

Tears unnumbered they would shed, yet still they would live, and love and defy Darkness.
And they would die. Yet as Fëanor prophesied, their deeds would “be the matter of song until the last days of Arda.

The Arc of Fire, the blazing thread of forbidden love and desire which began with Fëanor and Fingolfin spanned three generations and thousands of years.
I Will Lead And Thou Shalt Follow. told of the birth of that passion. This story continues the Arc, telling of the ultimately doomed love between Fingon and Maedhros, Fingon's son Gil-galad and Tindómion, son of Maglor, in an Arda where the love of one's own gender was seen as an offense in the eyes of the the Valar – and punished by banishment into the Everlasting Dark.

“I, Tindómion Maglorion do so swear, sire.” His voice shook a little. “My fealty and all my service is thine, Gil-galad of House Fingolfin. From now until the day of my death.”

“Or mine,” said Gil-galad, quite softly.


Book One of the Arc of Fire, and set within the Dark Prince AU, this story also includes Vanimórë, son of Sauron, parts of his earlier life, and the forging of the bond between himself and the Elves which would last for eternity.

Title: ~ Magnificat of the Damned. Book II. Resurrection ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 80]
Summary:

~ At the end of the Third Age, Glorfindel and Vanimórë, son of Sauron, are the supreme Powers on Arda, having passed through Fos Almir, the Bath of Flame.
~~~
The mighty dead have returned, and Glorfindel leads the Noldor to a haven in the east of Middle-earth, which they call their New Cuiviénen. Fëanor, released from the Void, will rule there as High King.
~~~
But the ancient loves, hates and feuds of the Noldor have not dimmed or been forgotten with the ages, and their new life becomes a tinder-box of passion, pride and power. Ancient dooms and betrayals arise, and both new and ancient notes of the Great Music are played across the Fourth Age of Arda.
~~~
Fëanor felt his sons' arms restraining him, heard their voices, but his eyes remained locked on those of Námo.

“Didst thou truly believe – any of you – that thou couldst judge me?” He burned fire back at their stainless chill and then, scornfully, he laughed.

Title: ~ I Will Lead And Thou Shalt Follow ~ by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 10]
Summary:

~ It was said that Fëanor had little love for his half-brothers, yet Fingolfin followed him to betrayal and, ultimately, to death in single combat against Morgoth.

There were many lies handed down through the ages, and this lie covered something so forbidden and irresistible that no law could forbid it, neither could death or doom destroy it.

The Arc of Fire, the blazing thread connecting the houses of Fëanor and Fingolfin encompassed three generations and thousands of years. It began in Valinor, in the Years of the Trees.

This is a prologue to Lords Of The Light, and set within the Dark Prince verse.


Fëanaro's aura was hard and as brilliant as forge-heated gems.

“And wilt thou indeed follow me?” he whispered.

Title: Dark Prince ~ The Darkness Has Its Own Light. by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 121]
Summary:

~ Lúthien was not the only offspring of Maia and Elf born in the Elder Days, but Vanimórë's tale was never to be sung in glittering halls.

His mother was Elven.
His father was Sauron.
His birth was accomplished by the blackest sorcery of Morgoth Bauglir.
He was forged as a double-edged sword is forged, as lethal and as beautiful.
And they tested him to breaking-point.

He would not break.

"Until the sky breaks and the mountains fall into the Great Sea, and the End cometh, there is no world for us." ~ Vanimórë Gorthaurion.

The first of the Dark Prince series, the story of Sauron's son, born to be a weapon, a warrior, a servant of the Dark – or its eternal enemy. ~

First Age to the War of the Ring.

Title: A Light In The East by Spiced Wine
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 99]
Summary:

A crossover gift-story between Esteliel's Ethuil'waew and my Dark Prince verse.

What would have happened had Legolas not been able to flee to Imladris and Glorfindel when he found he was pregnant? What if he fell into entirely different hands?
~~~
After the Last Alliance, Vanimórë, freed for a time from Sauron's control, made himself the ruler of a Sud Sicanna, a wealthy city in the Harad. Five hundred years later, he journeys to Szrel Kain on the Sea of Rhun where rulers of the East are meeting to discuss renewing their attacks upon Gondor. Vanimórë goes to gather information, to keep his finger on the pulse of events.
~~~
Legolas, banished from his home, wanders into the hands of a clan traveling back to Rhun after a summer of trading. The Men, afraid he will bring ill-luck on them, mean to sell him, and in lands where the Dark Gods are worshiped Legolas' uniqueness would mean sacrifice, the death of both himself and the child he bears: Glorfindel's son.
~~~
He falls instead into the hands of the Dark Prince, the son of Sauron, who understands neglect and abuse only too well...
~~~
Glorfindel felt anguish as deep as a crack in the world in Vanimórë's soul.

“I know how Legolas feels better than thou canst imagine. Thou didst name me Vanimórë. That is my name in truth. Thou hast penetrating sight, or did. Vanimórë Gorthaurion. The son of Sauron holds and will protect Legolas Thranduilion and
thy son. Is that not wonderfully ironic, Glorfindel?”
