Check them out here:

"Fruition" by [ profile] edoraslass gets a special mention. Shiver-y AU featuring Thorongil, Finduilas, Imrahil, and others. Very appropriate for Halloween!

"Jackson, Where's My Paycheck?" by theharshlightofday

A hobbit in dire need of health insurance, a bumbling gardener, a senile wizard, a klutzy ranger, a prissy elf and a horny elf maiden with a speech impediment… it can only be a shameless parody of Peter Jackson’s movie trilogy!

The summary above really doesn't do this fic justice. It's quite funny at pointing out movieverse/bookverse discrepancies and the fangirl factor. I'm glad that I started reading it!

No warnings, 5 chapters so far


He pulled down his hood, and revealed a shaggy mane of dark hair, flecked with grey. His silver eyes sparkled with mischief.

“Who are you?” asked Frodo.

He smiled. “Are you frightened?”

The hobbit shrugged. “Not really.”

“Awww,” Strider pouted, “Do I not look all rascally and evil?”

"No,” said Frodo, “You just look extremely hot.”


The door burst open, and in rushed Sam, Merry and Pippin, ready for a tussle. Strider drew his sword.

“Let him go!” said Sam, fists at the ready, “Or I’ll have you Longshanks!” He paused a second. “Isn’t your sword meant to be all broken and stuff?”

“Err, no” He sheathed it in a hurry. “Anyways, what the hell do you want? This is a private conversation.”

Merry raised a hand.

“We’re here for important plot exposition.”

Is it possible that the dead might walk? Or is there a more down-to-earth (with a bump!) explanation?

"The Lap of Time" by Gwynnyd

How does an elf learn how to die when half of her is gone?

“Aragorn put his hand on Eldarion’s shoulder and said that everything in Arda has more than one purpose. If he looked around him he would see there is nothing that has one use only. When the music sounded, it already contained within it everything that Arda is, in a complexity too great for any mind save Eru’s to comprehend. He turned Eldarion to face him. Taking the rose from my hair, he pressed it into Eldarion’s hand and, smiling at him, said, ‘Eru never wasted so much as a flower or a tree. How can you think he would squander souls? Men will have a part to play, before the new beginning, and after.’”

'This is an evil door,' said Halbarad, and my death lies beyond it. I will dare to pass it nonetheless; but no horse will enter.'

'But we must go in, and therefore the horses must go too,' said Aragorn. 'For if ever we come through this darkness, many leagues lie beyond, and every hour that is lost there will bring the triumph of Sauron nearer. Follow me!'
The Return of the King "The Passing of the Grey Company"

I wonder sometimes if Aragorn had foreknowledge that Halbarad would not be at his side when he reached the throne.

"Entwine" by [ profile] alex_quine

Sequel to "Cold Pressing"

Warning for male/male slash, but this story's more about relationships than sex. Intriguing tale.

I didn't find an index to all 9 chapters yet, but they're all in the author's aragorn/boromir tag below, along with her other stories.

"To Labour and To Wait" by Gwynnyd

" ... it seemed to the eyes of Legolas that a white flame flickered on the brows of Aragorn like a shining crown." The Two Towers

Aragorn had hidden in the shadows and used other names all his life, and yet he claimed his heritage openly before Éomer that morning on the plains of Rohan. Had something happened during the long watches of the night before?

Lots of Aragorn memories! And what is Legolas making for Pippin?

I'm still not a big fan of drabbles, but I love these two by Raksha about Huan, most faithful of companions. The second is light in tone but most poignant given how the tale unfolded.

I feel sure that Aragorn and Arwen had a dog when they lived in Gondor. I imagine this as one of the simple pleasures of home life that he'd longed for during all those years of travelling and fighting.

nos. 2 and 3 in Raksha's Divers Drabbles on Tolkien Fan Fiction
chapter list here:

I've also been meaning to rec this longer Raksha fic.

“The Falcon and the Star” by Raksha The Demon

It is March 15, 3019. Aragorn craves rest after the longest week in his life, but is called by Gandalf to the City on an errand of mercy. One weary warrior meets another in this visit to the Houses of Healing and other, farther places, and their lives will never be the same. (Mostly) from Aragorn's POV.

3 chapters + prologue and notes
