Who is this Gil-galad, of Whom You Speak?

Ch. 1: Who is this Gil-galad, of Whom You Speak?

This is a neat little essay: meaty, given the subject, and to the point.

Are you asking for someone to write those tales, or is this part of your preparation to do so yourself?  Smile

Cheers--

I'd love to see more Second Age stories written.  I've written a fair amount of Gil-galad, though most of it is on another site.  (Someday, I'll get around to re-formatting - but then I start tinkering with all the imperfections... .)

I can rec a few, though:  Vorondis' 'Mortal Shores' (slash), Zimraphel's 'I Bequeath', Nemis' 'Ereinion' (all here).

Extremely interesting opinion and speculation on the character of Gil-Galad and his role in the Second Age. General points which you make here are among those which are I feel strongly about: that LOTR is so greatly enriched by its history. Pet peeve of mine is when people choose to ignore it. I am also glad that you raise the question of the parentage of Gil-Galad. Am currently working on a series of stories where I am forced to consider whether or not to assert that Gil-Galad is Fingon's son or not. Am pretty sure that I will decide for the sake of my story line that he is not.

I think that either direction leads to some interesting questions.  I left Tehta's 'Legends' off my mini-rec list because it's unfinished, but the premise of a youngish Gil-galad in semi-amicable conflict with his father's, erm, cousin is just as fascinating as the history of Sauron's conflict with Finarfin's descendants.
