[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11115934/1/The-Shadow-of-Angmar The Shadow of Angmar]] by [[https://www.fanfiction.net/u/5291694/Steelbadger Steelbadger]]
* Recommended by: CubbyTBear
* Status: In Progress
* Crossover with: {{Harry Potter}}
* Comments: Slow moving but epic. Rather than returning from King's Cross to the final battle with Voldemort, Harry is summoned across the worlds by the Witch-King of Angmar, who thought he was summoning Morgoth. He is ... displeased. After being freed in the fall of Angmar, Harry travels across Middle-earth, trying to find somebody who can help him find his way home. There are excellent portrayals of elves, dwarves, the proto-Rohirrim, and many others. The author has clearly done the homework on Tolkien's mythology and writes marvelously, somehow blending Rowling and Tolkien's worlds into something that works.

* Pairings: Éomer of Rohan/Lothíriel of Dol Amroth



* 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.

* Synopsis: Fan edit of Peter Jackson's Hobbit movies that removes everything not in the book, including the love triangle, Radagast and more. The Blu-Ray version includes the Radagast as a bonus feature.
* Comments: This edit shows that hiding inside 3 mediocre movies was a 4-hour-long epic masterpiece.

* Synopsis: This series follows the friendship of Legolas and Aragorn, starting well before ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings LordOfTheRings]]'' gets started. It makes up a lot of events whole cloth - it ''has'' to - but it maintains a close (nonsexual) friendship between the two leads, and a close kinship between Elrond and his two sons and Aragorn (who was raised as their foster brother). Highly dramatic in places; the first story (of Legolas a long time ago) sets up Legolas's mistrust of humans with enslavement and (offscreen) rape, and there's torture and despair in places as well.

* This story is one of the most hilarious fanfics I have ever read. It pokes fun at all the worst fanfiction tropes, and also manages to be quite fun in it's own right. It even brings back several dead characters to make it even more insane.

** Seconded by Goodwrench. The story shows real creative imagination, and is terribly funny.

* Comments: A masterful work of humor, augmented by Young's great use of screenshots and heavy use of lampshading. It seems a little slow at the beginning, but definitely picks up. The [[http://www.shamusyoung.com/twentysidedtale/?p=615 constant tug of war between the DM and the players]] is really the highlight here.

** Seconded by Hindu Goddess. The humor is gut-bustingly funny, and no matter how many times you read it, it manages to stay funny. One of the few Mary-Sue parodies that manages to get through the entire trilogy. Warning, however, sometimes the actual characters slip into OOC moments (although some of it is the story taking affect on them).

* Synopsis: Every Tolkien fan has a "Tenth Walker" in them but Eleanor Dace hasn't read a word of Tolkien since she was thirteen and was still fantasizing about adventuring in other worlds. Now she's twenty-two, a third year English Literature student about to graduate from college; when she discovers that her teenage fantasy just got a bit too realistic for her liking. Now she's trapped in Arda, a world she has little idea how to survive in, trying to recover a missing set of memories that might help get her home. Or they might just make things go from merely life-threateningly bad; to apocalyptically worse. With little more than her hazy recall of the Lord of the Rings trilogy to draw on (and a sarcastic second personality giving cryptic advice in her head) Eleanor begins to realize that there is something sinister going on in Middle Earth, besides the return of the One Ring. Something more than mere coincidence brought her here, and only remembering what it is will get her home again. Oh, and in case things weren't complicated enough already her ears just got a whole lot more pointy.
* Tags: [Follows a mix of canon from the books and films. Rated for language and somewhat graphic descriptions.] Adventure, Fantasy
* Comments: One of the better ''Girls falls into Middle earth'' fics that I've come across. I didn't get annoyed by the main character through out the first book and I hope that remains in the sequel. Love the mystery that surrounds the main character as the plot is thicker than it seems.
