Don't mind Narya- Saturday is fine if you want Friday- probably easier for me to be honest.

Oh, ziggy, btw, are you happy with Friday or is Saturday easier for you? I can do either.

I managed it :-) and even got the next chapter up early! Not my best, but it was a busy day. That's my excuse.

Oh dear this story broke my heart. That's the thing with these two, it can be no other way. What a lovely snippet you offer us here, so rich and deep. Maedhros' sorrow is palapable, but ERestor, oh he broke my heart. That flash back. I was smiling like a fool reading it. Lovely!

Author's Response: Thank you! These two are forever breaking my heart and their own. Maedhros was never the same after this in my opinion. As I mentioned to Ziggy --Erestor is one of my favorite supporting characters. I've really wanted to write about the scene that comes after the golden ribbons in the flashback--the party they attend that night and the realization they have both made. But I've kind of boxed myself I'm with the flashback! I don't want to rehash it in a new fic but a new fic needs this scene as a backstory to make sense. Ugh. Conundrum.

Where have you been hiding Nelyafinwe?! Lol.

Another very wonderfully written and emotionally charged story!

Such a tearjerker, but I loved it!

A beautiful yet extremely heartbreaking look at Maedhros' and Fingon their love affair at its beginning and at its end. {Well maybe not entirely the end, because love can go beyond the grave}.

I liked how Erestor was so deeply affected; bursting into tears and having to excuse himself. I guess it showed how much others loved these two and the love they shared for each other.

I also like your take on how Fingon came to wear gold ribbons in his hair. Maedhros' idea on how to have Fingon look unique in Noldorin society. A look that became Synonymous with him.

They are so sweet together. And you write them beautifully. :)

Author's Response: Thank you--glad Ziggy convinced me to stop lurking and start posting my fics here! It is in a way the beginning and end--at least in their perception. I hold out hope they were reunited in the Halls and once they were re-embodied in Aman. I like Erestor as a close associate of the Fėanorions--it explains his later devotion to Elrond in my mind. I wanted a story of the origin of the ribbons that came from both Maedhros and Fingon--Maedhros way of showing Fingon just how unique he was and Fingon taking that as his signature look, all the while as an outward subtle message of their devotion to each other. I've wanted to write the follow up to that initial ribbon in the braids scene but not sure how as I've locked it into a flashback here! Thanks for reading--I've got more Fingon/Maedhros stories to come. And Erestor too.

I love this, story, Nelta. It made me cry whenMaedhros did- and all he has left is a golden braid. They are such a tragic couple- love how Erestor bullies him and then Maglor is so kind and takes over.



Author's Response: Thanks Ziggy. It made me cry writing it--their story is one steeped in such tragic loss. I really wanted to have the golden ribbons relate to both of them. A private gesture that became a public testament to their personal, private story. Erestor is one of my favorite supporting characters
