Camp Glingal

Everything About Fiction You Never Wanted to Know.

Camp Glingal is an utterly beautiful Greater Tolkien Canon fic by Araiona Dubois. If you like WAFF, escalating prank wars and just plain simple CRACK, this is for you.

Basically, Gwen and Kisha are the only counsellors left at the titular camp after a bizarre occurrence of the Northern Lights at Daytime. All they have left are Rangers, Valar and Valier, Hobbits, and every character you ever wanted to meet and some you didn't are in it! So, we have Feanor teaching ring making, Ulmo becoming a volleyball champ, and Manwe/Morgoth sibling rivalry!

Tropes used in Camp Glingal include:
  • Big Damn Heroes: Melkor at the end.
  • Deus Ex Machina: That's how the people get transported! That's how the camp was saved twice!
  • Gorn: In two chapters.
  • Happily Ever After: At the end, the entire Isle of Numenor is raised again, renamed Camp Glingal, and anyone who was there with the Tolkien characters (including said characters) can go there after death.
  • Deadly Change-of-Heart: Happily subverted. Morgoth turns good, Gwen manages to get sent to the Void after death, resurrects Morgoth's good side, breaks the both of them and Sauron out, and they live at Camp Glingal for the rest of their days.
  • Heel Face Revolving Door: Sauron.
  • Heel Face Turn: Morgoth.
  • The Power of Love: And how! Varda leaves Manwe, Morgoth bonds with Manwe, becomes Melkor again, pretty much adopts Lalaith a girl who's family he basically ruined, has two kids with Gwen, and definitely earns his' happily ever after.
