Fingon, you bastard! I can’t believe he cheated on Maedhros! OMG! What an ass! How long had it been going on? Was it the first woman? I hope Maedhros never goes back to him! Ugh! I am so emotional right now! :tears out hair: Infidelity is a THING for me (at least when it’s the kind of relationship that one of the people involved is going to feel betrayed). I have trouble reading it. And then add in that it’s THESE two this happened too! My babies! NOOOOOO! I really really can’t handle this story! It broke my heart for Maedhors! Oh, I wanted to give him hugs! I am so glad he has his brothers and father to have his back. He can get through this with them by his side!
You wrote Maedhros’ heartbreak so very well!
(Fingon, you bastard! )
Oh yes, Fingon is a bastard in this one. Especially since it wasn't a one night stand, but a row of bad desicions. Okay yes, he kind of fell out of love with Maedhros. They had been dating since Fingon was in Highschool and he didn't get much other experiences but still. Not the way to end a relationship. Especially betrayal like this ... Maedhros never suspected anything. His parents are deeply, deeply in love. Feanor and Nerdanel are DORKS, ridiculous sometimes but ... Maedhros always wanted that for himself. He thougth Fingon was IT. Hence the depths of his grief and his anger. But yeah, he has his brothers and his fathers to build him back up. Fingolfin as well, strangely. Who's not okay what Fingon did and that reflects in the beginning how he treats Gil-galad at first. Because he can't approve how that child came into the world.
And yeah, Maedhros broke my own heart while writing this. It's just not fair but I had to give him an opportunity to rage. To feel what he can't feel in canon because that's a whole different situation there.
*hugs Maedhros for extra measure*
My heart is just breaking for Maedhros right now. :'(
I always think Fëanor must have been a very lovg father to inspire such devotion in his sons.
I'm a holdy defender of the "Feanor was an awesome father" religion. I can't help myself. Hence why Feanor descends on his son like a wrathful god when he hears he's hurt.
Thank you for taking the time to comment.
Oh I liked this! And I usually don't really go for modern world fics. This is seldom addressed properly by Maedhros/Fingon fanfic writers....the fact Fingon theoretically has this son Spring out of somewhere.(depending which Gil-Galad version you choose to believe in of course)
Interesting that you have Feanor and Fingolfin being best buddies in this!
P,S. Do we get to see Fingon have a child in The World Breaks Everyone?
Thanks for your review despite Modern AU not being your thing. Here I can of had no choice since I wanted to take away the incest factor. I wanted to concentrate on how Maedhros feels about Gil-galad. In canon, ... well Elven Children are rare, especially in Beleriand so I guess the joy outweighted any hurt feelings. If they were still 'together' at that point. I always see that the relationship slowly cooled off ... vor various reasons.
So yeah, Feanor and Fingolfin became best buddies to make that "childhood friendship" happen. I hope you know that I'm very fascinated by the idea of writing a Feanor&Fingolfin best friends modern AU. One were they aren't related. I bet they would bet so much better along!
P.S. Yes we do. I think it's rather going to be in "Heaven's Reward Fallacy".
It's always great to see a Maedhros/ Fingon fic- love may they reign!! Some of these details are wonderful- the sound of the car keys, the chair scarping back.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I know that Modern AU isn't that popular in the Fandom. And Maedhros/Fingon is a pair that's written a lot, it means much to me.
