Sans没kh

Cover of Sans没kh.

Sans没kh is an incredibly well-researched, detailed, well-written Lord of the Rings fanfiction, telling the whole story from the perspective of the dead dwarves keeping watch over their relatives. Its protagonist is Thorin Oakenshield, and in addition to all the plots told by the primary books, it also features Erebor and Mirkwood. The writing is very appropriate and well-done, and I enjoyed every part of it tremendously. It’s funny, and it’s epic, and it’s very much as it should be.

Additionally, there are a ton (>300) of adorable artworks, an audiobook of good production quality, the beginnings of a graphical novel, and a SOUNDTRACK, including sheet music. The soundtrack is linked in the appropriate sections of the story, and it’s amazing. This page lists sub-pages which link to all the additional content.

If you want more fanfics in this general direction (though none as good), look at determamfidd’s recommendation document.

Quotes

Don’t take on the burdens that are others’ to bear. No-one is strong enough for that.

Everything yearns. Everything has beauty inside it, and it longs to be let free. The meanest of stones struggles to become, and we cannot help but sense it.

It matters not whether you are weak or strong. That is nothing. What matters is that you must manage with what you have been dealt.”

We are all flawed, one way or another. It is for us to choose the manner in which we mend.
