Title: Chapter 1

This is a fabulous story which I read when it was first posted on AO3. There is just so much to love about it! The map work is terrific! I love stories which carefully consider canon and then expand it! Of course, as you already know, it plays to all my canon preferences!

Sorry to repeat things I have already said, am thrilled to have to story here on my home site (!!) and really want to support it, while not feeling terribly alert or creative at the moment. But, anyway, . . .

Really like the oaths and the discussion around them. Great characterization of Elrond, Elros, Celebrimbor and Gil-galad. Enjoying the handling of politics and the politics of relentless complicated relationships among and between kinsmen in the First Age and their varying degrees of distance and closeness.

Those description of Feanorian stars on clothing and armor and the loyalty of hardcore, long-time supporters of the House of Feanor under the leadership of Maedhros (and Maglor as I read it).

I love the ending--believable and heart-wrenching. I am willing to receive and adopt your extrapolation on the very scanty canon which we have for the War of Wrath. Your interpretation shows an immerse amount of detail work and consideration, which I greatly appreciate. Once again, enjoyed this so very much.

Congrats on a beautiful piece of work. I am envious.
