Title: Two for Trouble

Aw, how cute. I'd take them home, but maybe they'd make me regret it.

A sweet family snapshot! And I can get behind the idea of the Feanorians being gossiped-about celebrities. :)



Author's Response:

I definitely think that they were constantly gossiped-about and, in my interpretation of them, spending part of their time in Formenos before the exile period means they would have had a following there as home-town celebrities. Dawn Felagund had the idea years before me that it is likely that it was one of their bases support, since a significant minority of hardcore Feanor supporters endured through the Flight of the Noldor and for centuries afterwards in Middle-earth.

Thanks so much for reading! I like bad little toddlers--they make me laugh. And, yes, they do drive me crazy also!

Title: Two for Trouble

What a lovely tale.
I enjoyed the little ones, but as a certain other recent reviewer, really liked their big brother.



Author's Response:

Hi, Scarlet! I missed this review on this ficlet until I got another one! So sorry that I did not thank you! Glad you enjoyed it.

Title: Two for Trouble

When I read your comment on Gold-Seven's image, I wondered whether you'd ever written about Maedhros and the twins and found that you had! I think I had missed this story before, somehow. What a nice glimpse of the family! And it sort of goes with your more recent story of Finno helping with the harvest.



Author's Response:

I had fun with this story! It was an early one also. Thanks for reading.

Title: Two for Trouble

Love this! And as a twin, well, I'm not sure how much trouble my sister and I were, but I imagine we didn't avoid it.

I'm glad they at least listen to Maitimo some of the time. :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I had a lot of fun with this one, imagining the little imps, Maedhros trying to be helpful, Nedanel a little harried, and the voice of the tanner bragging about his encounter with the local celebrities (almost canon!).

Title: Two for Trouble

I agree with your opinion that the 'ordinary' people of Formenos would be interested in what was going on in Feanor's family as much as modern people are interested in the comings and goings of royal families today. :) Lovely tale. Thank you very much for sharing.

Happy New Year!

Author's Response: I cannot believe I never responded to this comment! I am so sorry, I try to always respond. Someone wrote me an email about this story today and said they didn't remembered if they had reviewed it before or not, so I came here to look. Thank you so much. I am so happy that you enjoyed it.

Awwww ... okay, they may be in the terrible twos, but I can never resist wee!Ambarussa. You have such a gift for voice in your stories; the tanner comes through perfectly here. Is this going to continue? I know, I know, just what you probably want and need: another work in progress! But I'd be intrigued to read more. :)



Author's Response:
 Thank you so much. I am tickled pink that you liked it. I was worried when I had finished that the little devils ought to have been complaining about the smell. (I think tanneries smell bad or maybe I am mixing that up with a glue factory and a tannery side-by-side on the outskirts of the little town on the Ohio River where my mother grew up.) I almost continued the scene to include that element but it seemed like it would ruin the symmetry so I decided I wouldn't worry. (Or maybe those clever Noldor would have figured out a way around that problem.) It definitely was a one-shot, although if I had had months to work on the Seven in ’07 I might have been inspired to do a whole series of ficlets of the impressions of different townspeople of Formenos (as you imagined it in AMC) had of their most famous summer residents.  So I won’t rule out continuing it.

(Believe it or not. it was inspired in part by your chapter of the visit to the healer in Formenos with Feanor, Fingon, Celegorm and Maglor. I know they appear on the surface to have nothing in common at all, but made me wonder how it would have been written from her POV which you communicated remarkably well in the POV of Celegorm.)
