Notable Fanfiction

Maglor in Fanon

Maglor is often depicted as the most soft-hearted and sympathetic of the Feanorians, probably due to his adoption of Elrond and Elros, and his unsuccessful attempt to persuade Maedhros to give up on their shared Oath. He is often seen as the moral compass of the family, although that role can be given to Maedhros as well.

Maglor is in fanon often given the attribute of wielding two swords. Sometimes in fanon he is portrayed as having magical abilities related to his music, which he uses in battle.
