I found a Silmarillion fanfic by accident that it infinitely brilliant -- an apocalyptic thriller about Elves in modern times! It pitches the two most Doomed families of Tolkien's canon against each other -- at least so far, perhaps they learn to cooperate eventually. Amrod and Túrin managed at least one sensible conversation already, at this point.

Summary:

A drilling rig off the coast of Norway breaks down under mysterious circumstances. A petroleum engineer in North Dakota gets called off a major discovery because there's trouble back at home. It's the Dagor Dagorath, as apocalyptic fiction set in modern Earth starring the reborn Children of Húrin, and anything else I say would be a pretty major spoiler.

My additional blurb for this is slightly spoilerish the way blurb for for-pay books usually is )

Here is a small preview of my two favourite ones (linked to the sites again, in case anybody missed how great the pictures are, and that they absolutely need to go and look at them):


Maglor, son of Feanor, by Jenny Dolfen

(Yes, she laid down precisely how one can use those pics on one's own site, and I strictly kept to those guidelines...)
