I've unlocked my draft version for the final chapter on AO3 and posted it (links below).
The version on SWG is not updated yet.
I think maybe the summary needs a tweak, but I'm not sure what to add.

Such Great Deeds (12619 words) by Himring
Chapters: 6/6
Fandom: The Silmarillion and other histories of Middle-Earth - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Major Character Death
Relationships: Fingon/Maedhros
Characters: Beleg, Fingon, Mablung, Círdan, Gwindor
Additional Tags: Friendship, Cross-cultural, Noldor - Freeform, Sindar, Grief/Mourning

A friendship fic featuring Beleg and Fingon, from the Mereth Aderthad to the Dagor Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
With various guest appearances and a great deal of conversation on a number of different subjects.

The stand-alone version just featuring Beleg and Mablung immediately after the Nirnaeth is called "Even So the Reeds Hissed in Serech at Sunset" and is here:
It's also cross-posted to Many Paths to Tread.

Thank you very much to everyone who has already found either of these and commented!
I'm behindhand with comments and replies, but hope to catch up soon.

The results of the first round of voting for the Tree and Flower awards have been posted: http://lotr-community.livejournal.com/223332.html.

There are quite a number of my own favourites among the winners (some of which I nominated myself when nobody else had got to them first), and there are other excellent stories by well-established writers that I'd got around to reading for the first time for this.
But I'd like specifically to mention two very good writers that are relatively new to the fandom, Huinare and Alma Heart. Huin has a First Place in Favorite Crack!Fic and in  Favorite characterization of Saruman and has placed in other categories as well. Alma Heart has won Third Place in Favorite Drama  for We Shall Stand.

As for myself: Fingon for the win! Treebeard to the rescue! In other words, I got First Places in the categories of "member of the House of Finwe" and "minor canon character" for "After Rain" and "Lalme, Alalme". Fingon also assisted me to a First Place in Favorite Vignette.

Detailed results under the cut:

There is going to be another round of voting for the overall winner here:

Picking out just one story from that list is going to be really, really difficult.

Re-posting Curious Wombat's appeal below.
You can vote in only a single category, if you aren't interested in the others (and there's sure to be at least one category you are interested in), and you don't have to be a member either of MPTT or of the LJ community to vote. So don't lose your chance to vote for a story you like!
We are now up to about 27 voters, it seems...

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] curiouswombat at Please do go and vote!
The Tree and Flower Awards voting closes in a few days. The organisers worked hard to get these organised, to celebrate the anniversary of the Many Paths to Tread Archive; and so far only 23 people have voted.

So I would ask you to go to THIS POST and follow the links to the individual polls - you don't have to vote in every poll, you don't have to vote in each category of any poll (so I chose not to vote in some of the categories where I have stories competing) - but if you spot a favourite story or two, you could just vote for them. The polls will close on September 22nd - let's see if we can get some more participants before then!

The first poll (for stories categorized by Race) is just up for the Tree and Flower Awards at [livejournal.com profile] lotr_community!
This is a competition for stories posted to Many Paths to Tread by 3 August  2012 in honour of the Third Anniversary of the archive (rules are here) and for which thanks are due to the utterly heroic efforts of dreamflower02.
Voting will continue to 14 September and is open to all.

The MPTT site contains more Silm stories than you probably think. It also contains less fluff than you probably think (and who doesn't like a bit of fluff now and then, anyway?). Plus it contains a lot of other interesting stuff of all kinds worth exploring!

I've got a couple of my shorter stories on MPTT and some of these have been generously nominated:
Titles and links under cut )
I've also nominated a number of great stories and many other great stories have been nominated by others. So go and read! Or go and vote!

Tree and Flower Awards Nominee

Having taken courage from Keiliss's excellent late entry to the Many Paths To Tread Third Anniversary challenge, A Secret Gate, I went on simmering a bit and found my ideas came together after all.
Perhaps not quite celebratory enough for the occasion (and perhaps I should have ditched the Quenya names).
But I have written Artanis again! That always seems to take special courage, and this is the longest piece yet.
The original idea for the scene at Losgar actually goes back to B2MeM 2011, but I had no idea then that this was going to be about Galadriel.

Title: Galadriel: There and Back Again
Rating: Teens
Elements: Home is behind, the world ahead… The world behind and home ahead… (plus some bonus allusions to the Walking Song in the third section)
Summary: A group of three vignettes from the life of Galadriel: (i) Home is behind, the world ahead (First Age): Shortly after her arrival in Middle-earth, Galadriel visits the beach of Losgar; (ii)  Does not apply (First Age): Galadriel in conversation with her eldest brother Finrod Felagund; (iii) The world behind and home ahead (Third Age): Galadriel leaves Middle-earth, boarding ship at the Grey Havens.
Characters: Galadriel (Artanis), Fingon (Findekano), Finrod Felagund (Findarato/Ingo), Frodo Baggins, Bilbo Baggins
Word Count: 1617 words
