Lovely! All I could think about reading this was of the helm Fingon wore when he met is end: "Then Gothmog hewed him with his black axe, and a white flame sprang up from the helm of Fingon as it was cloven. Thus fell the High King of the Noldor; and they beat him into the dust with their maces, and his banner, blue and silver, they trod into the mire of his blood."

but knowing that he passed it on to Hador. Ugh. This is just heartbreaking but you managed to bring a little bit of light, and warmth, to the story of the Dragon helm. Lovely, thank you for writing this!

Author's Response: Thank you. That passage you highlighted always brings me to tears. If only he had the dragon helm. :( They have such little happiness that I just have to give them stolen moments here and there where they can just enjoy each other and the moment.

I'm so glad Ziggy convinced you to post here, Nelya!

Even though you only have two stories up, they're fantastic!

I loved this! To weave a story around the gifting of the Dragon Helm!

You write Fingon and Maedhros as if you know them personally. As if you are a part of their intimate moments and conversations. A fly on the wall so to speak.

I had always imagined Fingon being Maedhros' rock. Someone to balance him, to bolster him when the nightmares and memories of Angband consume him. It just seems natural for Fingon to be the caring, nothing appears to phase him type. And in my eyes that is one of the many traits that makes him such a loved and great King.

Oh! And I also like Curufin's plan for under floor heating. I always imagine him coming up with the most advanced ideas. :)

Author's Response: Thank you Gabriel! The Dragon helm has always been an issue for me--it purportedly kept the bearer from harm, including death, and I just cannot forgive Fingon for giving it away--a part of me often wonders if his fate would have been different had he worn it in the Nirnaeth. I think Maedhros would wonder also. I love the fact that it is canon in Tolkien that Maedhros and Fingon periodically exchanged gifts. That Tolkien mentions this fact specifically. They never seem to have enough happy moments, these two, so I felt we needed a bit of happiness in Himring for them. Your fly on the wall comment just made my day!! I am so glad their dialogue and characters ring true! They are old friends in a way--I write about them so often and think of them a fair amount when I am brainstorming ideas. Yes I see Fingon as Maedhros' rock also--his safe space. Curvo has lots of ideas and it's just not fair that his brothers don't let him experiment more! Fëanor was very much an Elvish Leonardo da Vinci in a way--his creativity spanning so many fields of study. Curvo follows that to a lesser extent.
