For Havisham (Agelast)
This story is set in the same 'verse as my Maedhros saga, but can for the most part be read independently.
(Fingon/Maedhros implied only)
The text is the same as posted on AO3, but I have readjusted the chapter division in the section set in Eithel Sirion. (It spans three chapters here rather than four.)
Officially, it seems, Beleg was not among the emissaries that Elu Thingol sent to the Feast of Reuniting.
But perhaps he was there, anyway, briefly...
Beleg and Mablung arrive in Barad Eithel in order to join Fingon's army. They are late arrivals, trying to find their feet and assess the situation.
Features a short appearance by Cirdan.
Beleg encounters the contingent from Nargothrond, including Gwindor.
One night, his intervention is called for.
Fingon and Beleg finally get around to having their private conversation.
It touches on many subjects, past and present.
Eventually, they return from their nocturnal walk to the castle.
It is a peaceful scene--nevertheless the stage is now all set for the Fifth Battle...
How it ends, was always going to end...
Beleg and Mablung escape from the Battle of Unnumbered Tears.
Mablung's last stand before the Treasury of Menegroth during the Battle of the Thousand Caves.
Warning for character death, but no explicit violence.
