A Copper Band by Himring

[Comments - 2] Printer

Summary:

The copper circlet that Maedhros wore in Valinor had been made by Curufin.  After their arrival in East Beleriand, Curufin offers to replace the lost circlet by a new one. The ‘copper band’ is also Maedhros himself, trying to tie people together with varying success.


From the viewpoint of Curufin, because in previous stories I’d basically written him off as ‘hard to read’. He and Maedhros agree to disagree about the abdication business.


With a brief glimpse of Celebrimbor and some foreshadowing of later events.


This story has been nominated for the MEFAs 2010 by Hallbera. Thank you very much!

1. Chapter 1 by Himring [Comments - 2] (2425 words)

 

(Names: Curvo=Curufin, Tyelpo=Celebrimbor, Nelyo=Maedhros, Tyelko=Celegorm, Macalaure=Maglor, Carnistir=Caranthir, Nolofinwe=Fingolfin, Findarato=Finrod; Atar=Curufin or Feanor, depending on whether Celebrimbor or Curufin is speaking)

There are a number of competing explanations for Maedhros's Sindarin name. As far as this story is concerned, the name is made up out of the first two syllables of two of Maedhros's Quenya names, Maitimo and Russandol, tacked together and Sindarinized in sound without regard to meaning. That is why Curufin describes the name as 'chopped-up'.
