Reviews For Brothers

Wow! How far from grace they have fallen!

So much of themselves are lost. I hardly recognize Maedhros aside from the reddish locks.

Even if it wasn't why they originally took the twins in the first place, it became about family. Having that little piece of family close, accessible and safe. They believed they were giving Elrond and Elros a better start in life. Righting the wrongs and not just of Sirion. It is just so very sad. And Maglor falling in love with them isn't going to make things any easier.

In some instances even some members of their family have become a dirty word to them. *Orodreths whelp* I would hope that any family would be important to them, especially since they have lost all of theirs.

I would really like to know why Elwing and her family have kept a silmaril from the Feanorions, when they know first hand that they will fight and kill any who get in the way of retrieving it? And why in all of Arda, did she choose a crystal over her boys?

So heartbreaking. But a great and interesting read. :)

Author's Response:

Taking the twins originally was purely a strategic move on their part, though of course time goes on and raising children takes on its own spirit, especially when those children are blood kindred.  And as the bulk of raising and educating them seems logically to fall to Maglor, it makes a lot of sense that they'd beome almost like his own. It was a hard decision.

Elwing -- oh, that is a long story I cover in all sorts of other fics, usually briefly, but what I've always believed is that she jumped out of pure terror when faced with the men who killed her parents and whose people left her brothers to starve. I don't think it had much to do with the jewel or not loving her sons - just a moment of mind-breaking fear. As to why she didn't hand it over tamely? She was very young, I doubt any of her advisors favoured it and she had been raised to see it as her heirloom. Also what I've read is that the people of Sirion regarded the Silmaril as a force of protection and goodness for them, so --- lots of reasons to try and buy time till her husband got home. And then time ran out.

Sorry, running on there, lol. Anyhow, thanks very much for reading :) And I'm sorry I'm only resonding now, seems efiction saw fit to turn off notifications in my preferences.

I really like this! Having just written and posted a fic about Maedhros and Maglor sending the twins away during the War of Wrath this really resonated with me.
I see Maedhros being the instigator too. He's rational and realistic about it. It is hard for both of them to give them up but I don't think Maglor willingly would have without Maedhros' influence.
Such a wrench for both of them--I see their time with the twins as their best time since before the Nirnaeth

Author's Response:

*I see their time with the twins as their best time since before the Nirnaeth* This, yes. Exactly. Some touch of warmth and family, a sense of normalcy in amongst all that darkness. I admit I don't write either Maedhros or Maglor often, but that was very much what spoke to me when I started this. The fact that you liked what I did here after having just written the same character mix and theme yourself is a great compliment - I know finding someone else's version soon after doesn't always work. I want to read your fic now - it is actually on my 'to read' list for SWG - but I'll leave it till tomorrow when I'm properly awake. 

Apologies for the late response too. Somehow 'notifications' got turned off in my preferences. I have no idea how, other than the fact that efiction sites always hate me, lol. Again, thank you :)
