So sorry to hear about your cat, Caunedhiel, and keep my fingers tightly crossed for him to be all right and come back. It's so hard to lose them, and harder still to not know what's happened.

Thanks Gabriel. It's hard to take in the things that are happening all round the world at the moment.

Thanks, Cheeky. As you've seen, I found it. I'm not long back from a few days walking a section of Offa's Dyke. So tired!

I love that it was Feanor who finally drew Maeglin out, and that he just showed up one day at Maeglin’s hut!  And it seemed completely natural that Maeglin would find the greatest comfort with the Feanorions.  I did really like that Maeglin’s family was accepting and forgiving (especially loved Fingolfin’s ride into the forest and how happy he was after!), but I bet Maeglin never felt completely comfortable with them because he was always wondering in the back of his mind if they really had accepted him/loved him/ forgiven him or it is was all pity, or something, but with the Feanorions these fears are finally eased.

I love Maeglin re-born fics!  And the Feanorions too!  So this was a treat :)  Thanks for sharing!

First, I'm pretty sure that it was Fingolfin who prompted Feanor to visit Maeglin. Just imagine, Fingolfin gushing over how magnificent his grandson is, bursting with pride so that Feanor how to see for himself. (It would be too good if his brother's line finally produced someone with a sense for craft! But Aredhel has always been the best of that bunch, so no surprise there) ... and Maeglin ... is drawn to Feanor like a moth a flame. I think he finally sees a teacher, a mentor he never had.

The rest is ... well the Feanorians know that the elvish equivalent to PSTD looks like. And Maeglin has lots of it, so he is better of with them. Fits better with them, he's too much of his parents child to exist anywhere else. Not to mention that a bunch of kinslayers are much less likely to judge a traitor like him. 

Not lets just imagine that Maeglin will spend many, many wonderful days in Feanor's house ... and the sass level multiplies whenever he and Curufin meets by a hundred.

I loved this. I have a huge soft spot for Maeglin. I think he got a very rough deal...right from the start. But the fact he was captured and tortured by Morgoth but yet when he returned, nobody even seemed to have bothered that he was gone, is quite crushing.

I especially loved Fingolfin in this. So exactly how I see him!

Author's Response:

I feels like this as well. Maeglin just deserves ALL the cuddles. With blankets and chicken soup. There's so much what worked against him, ... he never had a chance. I imagine it was the doom working in subtle ways against him, the Noldor and against Turgon in general. Because Maeglin could've just easily been the bridge between Fingolfin and Thingol, given how Eöl is rumored to be related to him.

Not to mention that Maeglin is OLDER THAN GIL-GALAD! Maeglin could've easily become High-king, had Aredhel chosen to seek sanctuary with her father.
