It's bad enough that I'm pained by arthritis, but now my back has been bothering me for the past few days. Oh! the vicissitudes of old age! I am so very tired. Come, Death. Draw the final curt

Reviews For Of Gems And Jewels

I think the reasoning about the Shine and the Silmaril having a hive mind, is pretty solid. What makes a upset a little bit is the lack of interaction with other people. There's only Alexander to compare to, which makes referencing the interaction difficult.

Author's Response:

Thank you for reviewing and pointing this out; the lack of minor character interaction is a recurring issue in things I write (and Agnes has even less experience with many-person fics so she can't exactly help out there...)

I'll try my best to fix this. This is a WIP after all ;)

This chapter is so great, I had to sketch Maedhros feet: http://jumclia.tumblr.com/post/71963488237/feanorians-reloaded-maedhros-used-the-sofa-for

I dearly love the Feanorians and the thought of them trying to live in London is hilarious. Six people in one flat ... I just wonder how long it takes until Curufin breaks a car apart? (driving Feanorians, meep...)

But it's just sad and unfair that they suffer from the oath again already!

Author's Response:

LOL! That is exactly how imagined it to look! xD Maedhros is already tall by elven standards, he is really huge compared to most humans... They just don't make sofas that size... (it's one of the reasons he hasn't gotten a job; he is not exactly inconspicuous with his fiery red hair, missing hand, and incredible height)

Six people in one flat is complete overkill indeed (but Caranthir is nothing if not frugal, so the cheapest option it is...) and as for cars... it won't be long before Curufin gets is hands on one. Not at all, even. (Everybody, brace yourselves...)

Right now they're doing quite well still, there will be more suffering by far when they actually come in contact with the Silmarils... (I am such a cruel person...)

Thanks for reviewing, and for the drawing too :D

Did the Silmaril pick up characteristics from Maedhros and Maglor? Holy hell, my heart. It aches.
The rhymes are good, but they do have a vibe of sexual frustation? Would make sense, after so long. But even if not, the SoF will love them. They are the sisters they never had.

Author's Response:

Thanks a lot for the review! I'm really glad to have a regular reader for this story ;)

Sexual frustration is an understatement. There is hardly anything that the Silmarils can't/won't turn into innuendo. And they have an unexplainable love of all things offensive and rude. Rebels without a cause much xD 

As for them picking up characteristics, you are right on to it. Back in their gemstone days, the Silmarils picked up characteristics from everyone they burned, because the burning wasn't just physical but also wounded the fëa of the person involved. (This is -in this verse- also the reason why the burns continue to hurt after having scarred over) Through this involuntary contact of fëar they absorbed information that became the basis for their own characters as people.

The Fëanorions will come to love them indeed, in time... Although there will be trouble first, of course xD

Much love,

You are incredible! I love your acronym for SILMARIL. Can I use it if it ever get so far?
For the story: XD .... it is bound to become hiliarous. the Feanorians have a built in dector. And I doubt Feanor will stay where he currently is right now.

*hopes for more*

Author's Response:

Thank you! You certainly can use the acronym, I would be honoured ;)

And yeah, it's the whole "inescapable doom" thing they have going on that makes sure they just can't avoid finding the Silmarils xD They are in for a mighty surprise; at this point they have no idea that the Silmarils aren't exactly gems anymore... (and neither do the Valar, actually... ehehehe) 

More will come soon, as soon as QP gets my wicked ideas shaped into the form of a grammatically correct story! ;)

Much love and thanks for reviewing,

This sounds very interesting. I'm glad I could be of help. Let's where will head this :)

Author's Response:

I hope it won't disappoint! It's very different from everything I've done before; Agnes had never written anything other than NSFW one-shots, and I usually write multi-chapter humor fics with a moderate rating, so combining both our ideas is sort of a challenge...
