Author note: I recently did a series of 100-word drabbles about Maedhros (No Flame Burns Forever). It was a good exercise so I thought I would try a similar idea with Fëanor as the central character. I have been reluctant to utilize him as a character in my works, as I am somewhat intimidated when I think about writing him. These short glimpses into his life gave me a better sense of how I think of him in my head canon and made me more comfortable with his character in general. So here is a series of 100-word (occasionally more than 100 words!) drabbles from the point of view of Fëanor.
Characters: FŽanor, Finarfin, Fingolfin, FinwŽ, Maedhros, Maglor, Mahtan, MŪriel SerindŽ, Nerdanel, Sons of FŽanor
Chapters: 85 Completed: Yes

I have based the timeline more on the information in 'The Shibboleth of Fëanor' rather than the published Silmarillion, as I prefer to imagine he had some time with Miriel before her death, which is why he was so affected by it and by Finwë's subsequent marriage to Indis. I also think it gives his mother time to realize more about his character, so that she aptly names him the "Spirit of Fire." Miriel is described as dark eyed and silver haired, which was unusual for a Noldo. I have retained that appearance here.
thanks to nyx thranduillon and Cheekybeak for their encouragement to try this character.
Please look at this lovely artwork of Fëanor by Irsanna--I think it complete captures Fëanor and his feelings for Miriel. She has given permission for me to link it to this story.
