* It's long (over 120 chapters and counting, including a happy AU where certain characters don't die) but worth it. It does contain m/m relationships and graphic medical and sexual scenes. Although the concept of OCs and the ever looming threat of Mary Sue (Sauron who?) may cause you to pause, this fic neatly sidesteps the common traps. If you want to read about the Middle Earth behind the gloss of bardic lyricism, this is an excellent choice. Tackles political intrigue, racism, sexism, education and war while promoting an endearing plot.

Four years and hundreds of leagues later, her past is about to catch up with her in more ways than one."
* Tags: Adventure, Romance, R for content. This story is an AU. With the exception of the first chapter it is set post-ROTK. It will contain heavy violence, the mention of rape though no actual depictions, and sexual content—again, no gory details, some semi-explicit sex
* Comments: I found this novel-length, finished story when I thought I was done with [=LotR=] fan fiction and almost didn't click the link. Now it has become one of my favorites in any genre. Éowyn's decisions make sense in the context of the story and build much sympathy for her character and the world around her. The world building is also really well done, giving a look at the effects of the War on the lands that fought with Mordor. I thought the pairing would feel strange but it was pulled off incredibly well.
* Comments: Complete in seven chapters, this is Éowyn as Tolkien posthumously wishes he could have written her. While YMMV on her characterisation in the context of medieval concepts of self and femininity, the modern reader will rejoice. This is the Éowyn who killed the Witch King of Angmar, who defied honour and the rules of society to seek death on the Pellenor fields. She's fragile, strong and utterly as she was before she met Faramir, settling down to the propriety of Gondorian society. The romance is in character and loving rather than hawt. The exploration of monarchic rulers and social mores, as well as the reach of Sauron's domination is fascinating.

* Pairings: Éomer/Lothíriel, Faramir/Éowyn, Aragorn/Arwen
* Synopsis: A series of short (the longest is 7 chapters) fics about Éomer and Lothíriel, following their romance from their first meeting, in the aftermath of the battle of the Pelennor fields, through their engagement and well into their marriage. The stories start with The Healer and the Warrior, and are all part of the same story line.
* Tags: Romance
* Comments: The characters are well written, and Lothíriel is an intelligent and likeable heroine. It's romantic, witty and quite a worthwhile read, though it does move slowly at times. Lothíriel's brothers are ''hilarious,'' and the author does a great job writing diologue in general and theirs in particular.

* Synopsis: My name is Lothíriel of Dol Amroth. Though my reputation for truth is somewhat tarnished I swear that every word of this tale, the most important of my life, is true...

[[DeadpanSnarker Lothíriel]] and [[BoisterousBruiser Éomer's]] [[OppositesAttract relation]][[BrainsandBrawn ship]] progresses exactly how one might imagine it would; characters are well-rounded and completely fleshed out while dealing with courtly intrigue and the realistic aftermath of the War of the Ring.

* Synopsis: Years after the War Of The Ring an injured Ranger attacked by wolves finds himself with a broken leg and an unlikely rescuer.

This is the ''real'' story behind Middle-earth's longest and most enduring marriage, that of the Lord and Lady of the Galadhrim.
* Comments: Epic doesn't even begin to describe this vast, novel-length fanfiction. 40 chapters, over 512,000 words, it spans hundreds of years during the First Age and this is only ''Part 1'' of 3. The author intends to complete two more sequels taking the reader all the way up to the end of the Third Age and the War of the Ring. The sheer level of dedication, skill, attention to detail, character building and storytelling ability that has been poured into this work is truly astounding. The story remains completely canonical to the dates and events portrayed by Tolkien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', ''[[Literature/UnfinishedTalesOfNumenorAndMiddleEarth Unfinished Tales]]'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' but fills in the many, many gaps that surround Galadriel and Celeborn's courtship and marriage, with a sharp focus on the politics of Elven culture and the coming together of the Noldor and the Sindar.

* Synopsis: A series of short (the longest is 7 chapters) fics about Éomer and Lothíriel, following their romance from their first meeting, in the aftermath of the battle of the Pelennor fields, through their engagement and well into their marriage. The stories start with The Healer and the Warrior, and are all part of the same story line.
* Tags: Romance
* Comments: The characters are well written, and Lothíriel is an intelligent and likeable heroine. It's romantic, witty and quite a worthwhile read, though it does move slowly at times. Lothíriel's brothers are ''hilarious,'' and the author does a great job writing diologue in general and theirs in particular.

* Pairings: Éomer/Lothíriel
* Synopsis: My name is Lothíriel of Dol Amroth. Though my reputation for truth is somewhat tarnished I swear that every word of this tale, the most important of my life, is true...
* Comments: The characters (and their interactions) were such a pleasure to read that this troper has no qualms with imagining that this story was a continuation of canon. [[DeadpanSnarker Lothíriel]] and [[BoisterousBruiser Éomer's]] [[OppositesAttract relation]][[BrainsandBrawn ship]] progresses exactly how one might imagine it would; characters are well-rounded and completely fleshed out while dealing with courtly intrigue and the realistic aftermath of the War of the Ring.

* Comments: Well characterized slow burn Romance. It does a good job filling in Orcish society without whitewashing their brutality (when she finds him she seriously considers eating him, she rescues him out of loneliness as she has been on her own for so long.)

* Recommended by: PF_Fan
* Pairings: Galadriel/Celeborn, with others such as Lúthien/Beren sprinkled in.
* Synopsis: ''"He has dwelt in the west since the days of dawn, and I have dwelt with him years uncounted; for ere the fall of Nargothrond or Gondolin I passed over the mountains, and together through ages of the world we have fought the long defeat."'' This is the ''real'' story behind Middle-earth's longest and most enduring marriage, that of the Lord and Lady of the Galadhrim.
* Comments: Epic doesn't even begin to describe this vast, novel-length fanfiction. 40 chapters, over 512,000 words, it spans hundreds of years during the First Age and this is only ''Part 1'' of 3. The author intends to complete two more sequels taking the reader all the way up to the end of the Third Age and the War of the Ring. The sheer level of dedication, skill, attention to detail, character building and storytelling ability that has been poured into this work is truly astounding. The story remains completely canonical to the dates and events portrayed by Tolkien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', ''[[Literature/UnfinishedTalesOfNumenorAndMiddleEarth Unfinished Tales]]'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' but fills in the many, many gaps that surround Galadriel and Celeborn's courtship and marriage, with a sharp focus on the politics of Elven culture and the coming together of the Noldor and the Sindar.
** The sequel, ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11950343/1/Canticle-of-the-Haunted Canticle of the Haunted]]'', is currently being written.

* Pairings: Éomer of Rohan/Lothíriel of Dol Amroth
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: "The year before the Ring War, Princess Lothíriel of Dol Amroth is sent to Rohan by her father to seek shelter from the storm brewing in Mordor. There she meets Éomer, Third Marshal of the Riddermark. Unfortunately they do not hit it off... at first."
* Comments: A compelling novel about the romance between Éomer and Lothíriel in the last days of the Third Age, with incredible attention to canon detail. It's another candidate for 'this could have really happened', with well-drawn Rohan OCs and an absolute refusal to turn hero, heroine, and supporting cast alike into Mary Sues.

* Pairings: Eowyn/Legolas
* Synopsis: "In the aftermath of the War of the Ring, Éowyn comes to the painful realization that the wounds of the heart she still bears cannot be healed by going back to the cage, however gilded, however loving the master. Four years and hundreds of leagues later, her past is about to catch up with her in more ways than one."
* Tags: Adventure, Romance, R for content. This story is an AU. With the exception of the first chapter it is set post-ROTK. It will contain heavy violence, the mention of rape though no actual depictions, and sexual content—again, no gory details, some semi-explicit sex
* Comments: I found this novel-length, finished story when I thought I was done with [=LotR=] fan fiction and almost didn't click the link. Now it has become one of my favorites in any genre. Éowyn's decisions make sense in the context of the story and build much sympathy for her character and the world around her. The world building is also really well done, giving a look at the effects of the War on the lands that fought with Mordor. I thought the pairing would feel strange but it was pulled off incredibly well.
* Comments: Complete in seven chapters, this is Éowyn as Tolkien posthumously wishes he could have written her. While YMMV on her characterisation in the context of medieval concepts of self and femininity, the modern reader will rejoice. This is the Éowyn who killed the Witch King of Angmar, who defied honour and the rules of society to seek death on the Pellenor fields. She's fragile, strong and utterly as she was before she met Faramir, settling down to the propriety of Gondorian society. The romance is in character and loving rather than hawt. The exploration of monarchic rulers and social mores, as well as the reach of Sauron's domination is fascinating.

* Synopsis: Eowyn's growing friendship with Merry in the Houses of Healing begins to unthaw other feelings in her heart as well. A detailing of the Eowyn & Faramir courtship. Expands on Éowyn recovering in the House of Healing. The main focus of the story is of her growing friendship with Merry and how it influences her decision to hook up with Faramir.

* Comments: If there's one aspect of the original books that I wish Tolkien had devoted more time to, it's Éowyn and Merry's relationship. This fic not only does that, but the writing style and characterization manage to have the feel of the books. From the charm of Éowyn eagerly learning about Merry's childhood and Hobbit culture, to the absolutely heartbreaking scene where she confides in him about all the [[AndIMustScream inner turmoil she had to endure]] at the hands of Gríma, this fic's tone is all over the place (and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible).

The stories start with The Healer and the Warrior, and are all part of the same story line.

* Synopsis: "The year before the Ring War, Princess Lothíriel of Dol Amroth is sent to Rohan by her father to seek shelter from the storm brewing in Mordor. There she meets Éomer, Third Marshal of the Riddermark. Unfortunately they do not hit it off... at first."
* Comments: A compelling novel about the romance between Éomer and Lothíriel in the last days of the Third Age, with incredible attention to canon detail. It's another candidate for 'this could have really happened', with well-drawn Rohan OCs and an absolute refusal to turn hero, heroine, and supporting cast alike into Mary Sues.

Now it has become one of my favorites in any genre. Éowyn's decisions make sense in the last days context of the Third Age, story and build much sympathy for her character and the world around her. The world building is also really well done, giving a look at the effects of the War on the lands that fought with incredible attention to canon detail. It's another candidate for 'this Mordor. I thought the pairing would feel strange but it was pulled off incredibly well.
* Comments: Complete in seven chapters, this is Éowyn as Tolkien posthumously wishes he

While YMMV on her characterisation in the context of medieval concepts of self and an absolute refusal to turn hero, heroine, femininity, the modern reader will rejoice.

* It's long (over 120 chapters and counting, including a happy AU where certain characters don't die) but worth it. It does contain m/m relationships and graphic medical and sexual scenes. Although the concept of OCs and the ever looming threat of Mary Sue (Sauron who?) may cause you to pause, this fic neatly sidesteps the common traps. If you want to read about the Middle Earth behind the gloss of bardic lyricism, this is an excellent choice. Tackles political intrigue, racism, sexism, education and war while promoting an endearing plot.

* Pairings: Eowyn/Legolas
* Synopsis: "In the aftermath of the War of the Ring, Éowyn comes to the painful realization that the wounds of the heart she still bears cannot be healed by going back to the cage, however gilded, however loving the master. Four years and hundreds of leagues later, her past is about to catch up with her in more ways than one."
* Tags: Adventure, Romance, R for content. This story is an AU. With the exception of the first chapter it is set post-ROTK. It will contain heavy violence, the mention of rape though no actual depictions, and sexual content—again, no gory details, some semi-explicit sex
* Comments: I found this novel-length, finished story when I thought I was done with [=LotR=] fan fiction and almost didn't click the link. Now it has become one of my favorites in any genre. Éowyn's decisions make sense in the context of the story and build much sympathy for her character and the world around her. The world building is also really well done, giving a look at the effects of the War on the lands that fought with Mordor. I thought the pairing would feel strange but it was pulled off incredibly well.
* Comments: Complete in seven chapters, this is Éowyn as Tolkien posthumously wishes he could have written her. While YMMV on her characterisation in the context of medieval concepts of self and femininity, the modern reader will rejoice. This is the Éowyn who killed the Witch King of Angmar, who defied honour and the rules of society to seek death on the Pellenor fields. She's fragile, strong and utterly as she was before she met Faramir, settling down to the propriety of Gondorian society. The romance is in character and loving rather than hawt. The exploration of monarchic rulers and social mores, as well as the reach of Sauron's domination is fascinating.

The story remains completely canonical to the dates and events portrayed by Tolkien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', ''[[Literature/UnfinishedTalesOfNumenorAndMiddleEarth Unfinished Tales]]'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' but fills in the many, many gaps that surround Galadriel and Celeborn's courtship and marriage, with a sharp focus on the politics of Elven culture and the coming together of the Noldor and the Sindar.

* Recommended by: {{firerose}}
* Status: Complete
* Pairings: Éomer/Lothíriel, Faramir/Éowyn, Aragorn/Arwen
* Synopsis: A series of short (the longest is 7 chapters) fics about Éomer and Lothíriel, following their romance from their first meeting, in the aftermath of the battle of the Pelennor fields, through their engagement and well into their marriage. The stories start with The Healer and the Warrior, and are all part of the same story line.
* Tags: Romance
* Comments: The characters are well written, and Lothíriel is an intelligent and likeable heroine. It's romantic, witty and quite a worthwhile read, though it does move slowly at times. Lothíriel's brothers are ''hilarious,'' and the author does a great job writing diologue in general and theirs in particular.

* Pairings: Éomer/Lothíriel
* Synopsis: My name is Lothíriel of Dol Amroth. Though my reputation for truth is somewhat tarnished I swear that every word of this tale, the most important of my life, is true...
* Comments: The characters (and their interactions) were such a pleasure to read that this troper has no qualms with imagining that this story was a continuation of canon. [[DeadpanSnarker Lothíriel]] and [[BoisterousBruiser Éomer's]] [[OppositesAttract relation]][[BrainsandBrawn ship]] progresses exactly how one might imagine it would; characters are well-rounded and completely fleshed out while dealing with courtly intrigue and the realistic aftermath of the War of the Ring.

* Pairings: OC(Orc Female)/OC(Human Male)
* Synopsis: Years after the War Of The Ring an injured Ranger attacked by wolves finds himself with a broken leg and an unlikely rescuer.
* Comments: Well characterized slow burn Romance. It does a good job filling in Orcish society without whitewashing their brutality (when she finds him she seriously considers eating him, she rescues him out of loneliness as she has been on her own for so long.)

* Recommended by: PF_Fan
* Pairings: Galadriel/Celeborn, with others such as Lúthien/Beren sprinkled in.
* Synopsis: ''"He has dwelt in the west since the days of dawn, and I have dwelt with him years uncounted; for ere the fall of Nargothrond or Gondolin I passed over the mountains, and together through ages of the world we have fought the long defeat."'' This is the ''real'' story behind Middle-earth's longest and most enduring marriage, that of the Lord and Lady of the Galadhrim.
* Comments: Epic doesn't even begin to describe this vast, novel-length fanfiction. 40 chapters, over 512,000 words, it spans hundreds of years during the First Age and this is only ''Part 1'' of 3. The author intends to complete two more sequels taking the reader all the way up to the end of the Third Age and the War of the Ring. The sheer level of dedication, skill, attention to detail, character building and storytelling ability that has been poured into this work is truly astounding. The story remains completely canonical to the dates and events portrayed by Tolkien in ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', ''[[Literature/UnfinishedTalesOfNumenorAndMiddleEarth Unfinished Tales]]'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' but fills in the many, many gaps that surround Galadriel and Celeborn's courtship and marriage, with a sharp focus on the politics of Elven culture and the coming together of the Noldor and the Sindar.
** The sequel, ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11950343/1/Canticle-of-the-Haunted Canticle of the Haunted]]'', is currently being written.

* Pairings: Éomer of Rohan/Lothíriel of Dol Amroth
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: "The year before the Ring War, Princess Lothíriel of Dol Amroth is sent to Rohan by her father to seek shelter from the storm brewing in Mordor. There she meets Éomer, Third Marshal of the Riddermark. Unfortunately they do not hit it off... at first."
* Comments: A compelling novel about the romance between Éomer and Lothíriel in the last days of the Third Age, with incredible attention to canon detail. It's another candidate for 'this could have really happened', with well-drawn Rohan OCs and an absolute refusal to turn hero, heroine, and supporting cast alike into Mary Sues.
