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.
Eregion: Another dreamscape and more imaginary corpses--but considerably more conversation and a complete change of mood.
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...
Rough translation of the incomprehensible Quenya that Maedhros is described as crooning over Elrond as they rode from Sirion in Chapter Three
Small gestures can sometimes amount to major decisions.
Elrond knows this.
