Title: Chapter 1

Never had the idea of Erestor and Maglor before, but I am a great fan of the Feanorians,  and especially Maglor and Carnistir are my favourites,  because they somehow don't fit to the *normal * standards of this heritage.

I suppose Maglor for the most emotional and perceptiv of all his siblings, and your story suits this very well.

Yes, please write and publish the further envelopmemt, I really would appriciate it...



Author's Response:

Thanks for your review! I see Maglor a bit like you do, since he is a musician I think he is quite poetic and sensitive And perhaps not as comfortable with the harsh role of leadership although obviously he has to do that so he struggles with it. I have already written the ending of this relationship......well, the first age ending. I think Erestor spends the rest of time pining and regretting the loss of Maglor.

i will try and put that story up here for you later today!

Title: Chapter 1

This was a very sweet story! I was an Erestor once, longing from afar for someone above my social status, and twenty years later, he is my husband, so I have a soft spot for stories like this. :) I particularly liked how "Feanorian" your Maglor feels. Maglor is very often written as a kinder, softer Feanorian who doesn't quite fit in his father's house, and I loved the fire and spirit you gave him in this story.



Author's Response:

Thank you! I am so glad Maglor felt Feanorian to you. I don't really write Silm stories mainly because I am a bit intimidated by the idea of writing the Feanorians. They need to be so much "more" than everyone else and I doubt I can capture that.....so I stay away from them! So pleased I did manage to convey a bit of that in Maglor. I guess because he is a singer and a poet people think he is soft and sensitive, but you can be sensitive and still strong and fiery which was kind of what I wanted to capture. Unfortunately Maglor and Erestor end very badly. I might post the story of that disaster here one day.....and Erestor ends up in the fourth age full of regret. I wrote about that too but can't post it here, It is fourth age and Maglor is only spoken about, not actually there.....in fact I don't think Erestor even names him but it is known who he is speaking about. So not Silm enough for here! Thanks so much for the review.
