Well this was certainly unexpected, but an interesting read!  I can’t say I like this pairing (as you know I don’t like Manwe), but your writing of it was fascinating.  As always you bring original prospectives and ideas to things!  I liked the way Manwe learned what was happening in the world through prayers to him, or even curses in his name, and I liked that he wore a human-like from so little he forgot to put clothing on!  I also liked that Feanor’s motivations were very control/power based.  I could actually see it once you wrote it :)

As for a difference in the writing which you asked for comments on, well there were still sentences missing words/using slightly strange ones in certain contexts, but I’ve always been able to understand what you meant to say, and it doesn’t take away from my reading experience :D

You took a pairing I’ve never seen before (and frankly wouldn’t have read if it wasn’t an author I like writing it!) and made it interesting for me!  Nicely done :)



Author's Response:

I wrote Manwe because I got curious after "A little black spot on the Sun." When Manwe reembodied Maedhros, I realized he too has made a journey. Like Namo in "Scars of Tomorrow" but i wondered how Manwe got from the vast oblivious god to someone who can actually feel. Not like normal person, but as close as he will ever be able to get. Here he has feelings for Feanor since the very beginning. Perhaps he sees the earlier Melkor in Feanor and worried when they met. Tolkien once wrote Manwe had to release Melkor, because he promised it once and breaking it would've been far more disastrous than anything Morgoth did.

Feanor. I remember an article how sex among men is sometimes less about love and more about domination. Feanor certainly gets off on controlling Manwe, a Vala he has no good opinion about. But he still sees how helpless Manwe is to the everyday things. Knows (as in suspects, depends if and how rape is acknowleded in Aman) Morgoth could do to Manwe.
