Story Notes:


The violence of the Third Kinslaying and Sauron's devastation of Eregion are both more than merely moderate, of course, but are here shown reflected in dream and memory rather than directly.

Also, between the first and the second chapter, Maedhros commits suicide, but this is not shown.

Beleriand: A dreamscape.

2. Chapter 2 by Himring [Reviews - 0] (3863 words)

Eregion: Another dreamscape and more imaginary corpses--but considerably more conversation and a complete change of mood.

3. Chapter 3 by Himring [Reviews - 1] (1657 words)

Valinor: No dreams, no corpses, but a double flashback.

Glimpses of Fingon and Celebrian.

The whole story was originally conceived to fulfill a prompt by Alasse: Elrond visiting Maedhros after his reincarnation in Valinor--which the third and final chapter has now delivered...

4. Appendix: Sirion Lullaby by Himring [Reviews - 2] (183 words)
