Silm/LOTR Fic Recs
1. Yes, I'm still alive. I realize I've been neglecting my journal, but I'm hoping to start rectifying that.
2. It's been a long long time since I did any of these, huh. ^_^
The Game of the Gods, by Limyaael Silmarillion fic, humor parody, multi-chapter This is a entirely hilarious fic featuring mainly the Valar and certain First Age elven personages (I think ossian should really get a kick out of this one). Almost each chapter features a hilarious and unique Sue-bashing of a particular LOTR-sue archetype, but the entire work as a whole resolves into a rather cute statement on how to write well in general (play on the redemption theme, entirely tongue-in-cheek). Some characters are OOC, but certainly excusable for reasons of parody. And it's probably the few times that I'll sincerely say - Poor Morgoth! Hee. ^_^
The One Ring Reforged, by Cirdan In the Land of Mordor Where the Shadow Dies, by mirielle These two LOTR/Silm xovers have one theme in common, and that is the resolution of the Ring quest at the critique hands of the original master-smith of Arda. Somewhat whimsical humor-fics with not much plot consistencies attached. One-shots both.
Should've Thought of That One, Bori, by Eggo Waffles Another humor/parody. This one's a multi-chapter WIP, movie-continuity (what there is of continuity) starting off from the aftermath of Parth Galen, based on the premise of Boromir not having died then. The humor may be a little heavy-handed in some scenes, and there's rampant breaking of the fourth wall, but there were several parts which had me laughing so hard I couldn't breathe.
Until the World is Changed, by fanged geranium This one's not quite a humor fic, and I suppose it technically is a xover between LOTR and Harry Potter. However, the whimsical tone and light humor makes it stand out for me as a much better work than most xover fics of the genre. One shot, not too long.
