Reviews For The Song

A poignant moment - and as always, perfectly told. Love the fact that it's Fingon who falters and Meadhros who keeps going and there is that absolutely tender and trusting moment at the end.



Author's Response:

Thank you very much!

I later wrote about a similar moment between the two in another story, which is rather longer.

If you'd like to have a look, it's called A Length of Ribbon and so far only posted here:

Lovely moment, very nicely done.  Sometimes you want to relive something painful, just to get it out there.  I wonder about Maedhros, what he was thinking when he made the request.

Oh, also it just hit me, how foresighted of Fingon to have brought his harp with him on a rescue mission.  lol.



Author's Response:

Thank you very much, Elfscribe!

When I originally wrote this, the idea was partly to do it in a way so that it would slot into a lot of different readers' head canon (so not necessarily slash, etc.). My summary on SWG was so vague that I believe it confused some people.

When read as part of my Maedhros series, though, the backstory is as follows: they've never really quite discussed that rescue--and some of what passed between them in Mithrim was rather unhelpful. Now, a long time afterwards, they understand each other better (and have become lovers). Maedhros is trying to deal with the subject without uttering any comforting lies. (Really restraining myself here! I've since written a couple of stories in which all this is spelled out in much more detail, you see.)

Yes, the harp! I wrote a story explaining the harp when Angelica raised the question. I've read at least two other explanations since. They all do work in the context of their stories, but the harp does remain one of the more unlikely features of that rescue!
