I have decided to make a new thread for this so that each story can be voted for separately, and more than one option can be chosen. I moved the old one to the Archives. I voted for The Istari in the previous poll, and though it remains a close second, my favourite one actually is The History of Galadriel and Celeborn. I could group the stories into four categories, according to how much they interest me: Very high (a.k.a. gobble-'em-up-in-one-quick-go-and-hunger-for-more): The History of Galadriel and Celeborn The Istari High: Aldarion and Erendis The Palantiri The Druedain The Hunt for the Ring The Quest of Erebor Medium: Of Tuor and His Coming to Gondolin A Description of the Island of Numenor The Line of Elros: Kings of Numenor The Disaster of the Gladden Fields Low: Cirion and Eorl and the Friendship of Gondor and Rohan The Tale of the Children of Hurin The Battles of the Fords of Isen Note that even though I've branded some stories as being of low interest to me, that does not mean I think them "bad writing" or anything like that (I actually think even those are better than the majority of literature out there), merely that they are of less appeal to me personally. What are YOUR favourites?
