I am primarily a writer of First Age Elves and their relationship with the Valar, although I do also delve into the Second and Third Ages on occasion. I've been a Tolkien fan for almost forty years but I've only been writing Tolkien fan fiction since 2006.

Biblical Motifs in Tolkien’s Silmarillion by Fiondil

Rated: General | [Comments - 4]
Summary:

The Silmarillion sometimes reads like something from the Bible. That was deliberate on Tolkien's part. This essay explores three biblical motifs — Creation, the Fall, and what can be called the Saving of the Remnant — and how Tolkien uses them to weave his own unique story of Middle-earth.

In Darkness Bound by Fiondil

Rated: Teens | [Comments - 5]
Summary:

In the aftermath of the Darkening, three kings search for meaning in the midst of tragedy. One seeks absolution; another, vengeance, while the third merely endeavors to salvage what he can from the disaster and protect his people from future harm. All may find what they are looking for, though not necessarily in the way they expect, for, as always, the Valar have their own agenda. Many thanks go to my betas, Alassiel and Ellie.
