Story Notes:

When I finished reading the Silmarillion for the first time, I found myself hungry for more information about Elrond, Elros, Maglor, and Maedhros: a family that, against all reason, was said to be happy. In the summer of 2015 I wrote my first two Silmarillion fics, "Cut Ten To One" and "Reflection," in an attempt to reconcile the love, sorrow, care, and horror implied in this maddeningly vague part of the Legendarium. I don't stand by everything in those fics anymore, but they became the foundation of the labor of love that would become Pieces of the Stars.

I am not the first person to write this story, and I won't be the last.

Thank you to breadprincess for the beta and the daily support and motivation, to vardasvapors for taking an extra look and being a sounding board for tricky parts, and to everyone on Tumblr who put up with my writing woes and vagueposting. I couldn't do it without you! As always, I'm on Tumblr, come say hi!
