Comments For Thangorodrim Triptych
A moving scene, the effort that it takes Maedhros to speak and Fingon's anxiety how to handle the situation...
I always figured Maedhros came to the decision to pass on the kingship pretty quickly once he knew Fingolfin and co. had arrived. I imagine that he knew the Oath was going to have to come first, and he didn't want to have that kind of conflict of interest as High King.
This is very effective, with the reader being misled at first as well as Maedhros--and then that end.
I was really inspired by how, in the fic I linked in the notes (Weep and Be Burned), Melkor and Mairon try to convince Maedhros that his predicament is his own fault. And I figured since he's Feanor's son, making him forge the band that holds him to the side of Thangorodrim would be the kind of think the Angband crew would do. Because irony.
Such a well-written triptych. I loved the imagery you've chosen, and I loved your Maedhros, Maglor and Fingon. (Mairon, not so much! But that comes with his job description. ;))
Thank you! I don't usually write Mairon - I think this might actually have been the first time I've written him? - so I'm glad he was sufficiently evil! :)
Lovely first chapter. This timeframe--the rescue and the aftermath fascinate me.
I like the viewpoints of the siblings and Findekano's steadfast commitment to stay by Maitimo.
The lullaby at the end was a beautiful, wistful moment.
Thank you, kind reviewer! :)
Ever such a lovely ending. Looking forward to the next.
Thank you! ^_^ I should have the next chapter done and posted soon.
