Holding Back the Flood by shirebound
Frodo is safe in Rivendell, or is he? When one of the Nazgûl makes a last attempt to reach him, Sam, Legolas, and Gimli are also caught in his snare... and Elrond’s powers are tested to the limit. Book-verse AU, h/c, and plenty of hobbityness (of course). The canon timeline has been altered to allow Aragorn to play a major role.

Hollow, a Lord of the Rings fanfic - FanFiction.Net
This was written for the October Challenge: "Believe it or Not" over on the LotR Genfic livejournal community. My element was the word "mysterious," and I immediately thought of the Paths of the Dead. Specifically, I thought of those trees that even Legolas couldn't tolerate, which have always presented something of a mystery to me. So this is my reasoning on why those trees were so bothersome.

It Is Custom by Mar'isu - Stories - Henneth Annûn
A stray comment by Boromir leads to the Fellowship discussing ways of finding comfort. Warning: Frank discussion of sexual customs. Nothing explicit, or even very physical. If you're old enough to know what they're talking about; you're old enough to be thinking about the topics discussed.

I Return by Conquistadora
The homeward journey for Legolas, from Gondor to Greenwood and beyond. Some insight into what the War of the Ring must have meant to the quietest and oft neglected member of the Fellowship, together with his and Gimli's subsequent efforts to achieve acceptance in opposing worlds.

The River Chapter 1: To the Crossing, a Lord of the Rings fanfic - FanFiction.Net
This story is a gap-filler, containing a "side adventure" before the Fellowship reaches Hollin. The River Feinduin is my own creation; it runs from the Misty Mountains to the Bruinen, and lies between Rivendell and Hollin. The "T" rating is for perilous situations.

Knife Work, a Lord of the Rings fanfic - FanFiction.Net
While perusing one of my favorite sections from The Two Towers, I stumbled across a passage that had bothered me for some time. Those of you familiar with the books will recall that Gimli and Legolas have an Orc-killing contest at Helm's Deep, a contest that Gimli wins by one Orc. About halfway through this little game, while comparing tallies, Gimli reports that he has killed twenty-one Orcs while Legolas responds with a number of twenty-four Orcs. However, just before this, Legolas had twenty Orcs to his tally while Gimli had two. How did Gimli manage to come up with nineteen Orcs while Legolas dispatched only four during the same interval of time? I thought about this for a bit and then decided to write an answer to my self-imposed question. And for those interested, here is my theory on this little puzzle…

Lost and Found by Beregond5 - Stories - Henneth Annûn
Set two years after the War of the Ring. Arwen returns to Minas Tirith after a visit at Emyn Arnen. On her way and after a misfortune that deprives her of horse and her military escort, she finds herself in the company of someone whom she can't tell if he's a friend or foe. Drama/ Angst/ Action. I stress the term AU. Warning: For some of the story elements to make sense, you will have to read the other multi-chaptered stories I've written so far (except Thicker Than Blood), because it follows the thread of those stories.

Awakened Memories by Beregond5 - Stories - Henneth Annûn

Return Us The Children Chapter 1: Those Who Weep And Mourn, a Lord of the Rings fanfic - FanFiction.Net
sequel of sorts to "A Charge To Keep" and "Coming Home," and it is also something of a bridge between that and stories set later on in the Fourth Age. I had a set of characters who made a significant transition in their lives, and this story is an attempt to show how they came to make this transition.

It is set over the autumn and winter from 3019 to 3020. This is a period of recovery for Middle-earth. Sauron has been defeated, and the King has returned to Gondor, but the Third Age has not yet ended. Lingering effects of the Shadow and the War still remain.

A Bit of Rope by Aiwendiel - Stories - Henneth Annûn
What would have happened if Gandalf hadn't fallen in Moria? Would the outcome have been better, or worse? Here's a darker-than-the-original but not-as-dark-as-some AU version of how things might have turned out differently...and the same...if Sam had remembered to bring a bit of rope. 2010 MEFA winner, 2nd place, AU Longer works, Incomplete.
