The main story arc of this series goes from just after the rescue from Thangorodrim to Maedhros's death. However, the narrative is not strictly chronological - there are flashbacks, flashforwards and recounted memories. These span from Maedhros's childhood in Tirion to his release from Mandos just before the end of Arda. The individual stories are told from different points of view: Maedhros himself, Fingon, Maglor and Elrond. Although the upshot of the series is that it is pretty tough being doomed all the time, some bits are a lot more gloomy than others. All the dialogue was even wittier before being clumsily translated from Quenya. Considering the subject matter, very little blood and gore (I think). The ratings and warnings for individual sections differ greatly from the overall rating: see the individual stories.

ETA: Since I wrote this description of the series, it has snowballed in all directions. I feel that the description ought to be revised, but it is difficult to know exactly how to tweak it. You may wish to compare the more recent description of the series (with notes)  on AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/series/36091

The Library of Tirion by Angelica | [Reviews - 93]

Summary:

As the Silmarillion Writers' Guild turned five and reached its 1000th story, we thought it was a good time to look back on the authors who were active before our Archive opened in 2007. So we asked our members to suggest names of writers they had enjoyed reading in order to try to contact them. In this series you will find a collection of stories selected by these authors as their favourite or most representative productions.

We sincerely hope you enjoy rediscovering these wonderful authors. Do review their stories! They are willing to receive new opinions and different points of view!

Special thanks to Ithilwen, whose help to launch this project was invaluable.

Ratings and warning will vary: please check each story.

If you'd like to suggest an author for inclusion in the Library of Tirion project, please see our Library of Tirion page.
