Enismirdal's Choice

I’ve read plenty of fics; some good, some truly appalling, and some kind of in between. These are some of the outstanding ones which really took my breath away (alphabetically by title):

Another Man's Cage
Go here for chapter 1
By Dawn Felagund
Rating: R/NC17
Warnings: A bit of het
I discovered this fic by chance and it took my breath away. The depth of detail in the descriptions and characterisations is amazing, and the characters are instantly endearing.

Away With You
By Tuxedo_Elf
Pairing: Elladan/Elrohir, Eluréd/Elurín
Rating: R
Warnings: Twincest and a rather OOC Elrond; WIP (but NOT underage)
I have a passion for Eluréd and Elurín, and Tux managed to capture them perfectly in this fic. It's a very sweet and touching story and I am following it enthusiastically!

Feral Form (archived)
By Ezra’s Persian Kitty
Pairing: Glorfindel/Erestor
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Language, violence, some torture, 'yucky stuff'
This is not your usual Glorfindel/Erestor, but by the Great Dragon, it’s good. Prepare to develop a tail-fetish that will last for the rest of your life…

The Flower and the Fountain
By Aduial
Pairing: Glorfindel/Ecthelion
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Char. death (canon), WIP
This fic needs tissues! This is like a never-ending story; Aduial has added many extra chapters and side-stories since she completed it, and I love them all. If you don’t fall in love with Gondolin by the end of this, I think there must be something wrong with you!

Memories of Findekáno
By Ford of Bruinen
Pairing: Maedhros/Fingon
Rating: R
Warnings: Char. death (canon), angst
OK, so I admit that I am rather biased, having beta'd this fic, but I loved it. This is one of Uli's best, incredibly emotive and intense and absolutely beautiful in the emotions it depicts.

Recalled to Life - Alqualondë
By Anna Wing
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Another fic I found by chance, and another really beautiful one. A lovely poetic style with lots of depth.

The King's Vineyard
By MaryA
Pairing: Thranduil/OFC
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Het, very long fic!
This is a long fic - 50-odd chapters - but it is really good. The OFC is likable and interesting, Thranduil and Legolas are just lovely and the pace of the story is excellent!

This Silence (archived)
By Ezra’s Persian Kitty
Pairing: Glorfindel/Erestor
Rating: PG
Warnings: None
This Silence has the same effect on me as Titanic used to have on all those obsessed fangirls who would watch it over and over again and cry every time. Bring lots of tissues; this will break your heart, but it’s sooo lovely.

This Was My Choice
By Ford of Bruinen
Pairing: Glorfindel/Erestor
Rating: NC17
Warnings: Angst, mild twincest
I beta'd this fic too, so may still be biased! Still, it's excellent! The tale is so rich and sad, the characters so believable... When it was finished, it almost felt like the end of an Age for Uli and me!

Under the Curse
By Finch
Pairing: Maedhros/Fingon
Rating: R
Warnings: Char. death (canon)
Another tear-jerker, absolutely beautiful ending. Will leave you much more pleasantly disposed towards the eldest son of Fëanor.

Unspoken arc
By Rune Dancer
Pairings: Glorfindel/Elrohir, Elrond/Erestor, Elrond/Haldir, Haldir/Gildor, Elladan/Orophin, and several more!
Rating: NC17
Warnings: BDSM, a teeny bit of het. Quid Pro Quo is something of a PWP
Something less angsty; this sequence is original and absolutely hilarious…and for once Erestor doesn’t get abused!

Vanilla Elf slash
By Master Erestor of Rivendell
Pairing: Glorfindel/Erestor, Orophin/Elladan and others...
Rating: PG13
Warnings: AU, some implied het but nothing disturbing :p
OK, so I'm cheating - this isn't just one story, it's a whole alternate world! It's very very funny and very touching at the same time.
