Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Well this is a charming encounter and I do hope you come back for more.



Author's Response:

Oh yes, I'll. I can't leave such an interesting setting alone for long, I promise

What a strange story! If there were two characters I never thought I would read about having a conversation these two would be it!! 

You wrote Aragorn...I don't know why I am surprised at that, but I am. I spent a long time trying to figure out what time this was set in, (Aragorns time....not Maedhros') but it's obviously pre quest....right? Aragorn seems on the young side—and yet at the same time not young, if you know what I mean :-) 

Sad that he never got to tell Maedhros who raised him... And that Elrond spoke of him with love. 



Author's Response:

I admit that I got those two from my random prompts, which came up with Aragorn, Maedhros and faith vs doubt. It felt like it fit, even though they never met. It's rare that Elladan and Elrohir get to meet their grandfather(s). But Aragorn never does. Even though he's a Son of Elrond. And I don't think that Maedhros or Maglor would make a difference between them. They'd love him just as well and fiercly. Especially since Aragorn is young-ish in this fic. Past being Thorongil, supporting his own people but also still a little unsure of his place in the world. I see Aragorn as someone, who long stopped putting himself first, because there's always someone needing his help. Always someone depending on his strength.

In my eyes Aragorn and Maedhros have a lot in common, in their core personality.

And who know, I tagged this as a wip for a reason. Might write a second part one day.
