Story Notes: Written for the January 2017 challenge, Taboo. Quite likely AU, although I guess we can't really be certain.
No actual graphic on-screen violence, but some gory stuff in Chapter 2.
1. I. by Lyra [Reviews - 2] (906 words)
Touching upon O4 (religious taboos) - naming the Name (implied in the Oath and sort of played straight later). Also possibly mild B4 (sexual deviance), since angry violent noisy break-up sex would probably be frowned upon among the Noldor.
Warning for, um, angry violent break-up sex (though not particularly graphic), possibly AU.
2. II. by Lyra [Reviews - 1] (991 words)
This one covers N2 (unclean things) and G2 (weddings and funerals). Funerals, to be precise.
Violence warning for gory details about decomposition and the animal life related thereto. Tread with care!
4. IV. by Lyra [Reviews - 1] (1603 words)
Dealing with B2 (violate Laws and Customs among the Eldar) - not really, as it happens, but assumed by other characters. Also sort of covers G3 (curses). And kind of breaking a fandom taboo, I guess. Therefore, probably AU.
Warning for vague descriptions of the kinslaying. And also for unplanned pregnancy and for fleeting thoughts of suicide, I guess.
