Oh my dear Ziggy! What are you doing to yourself. I hope you heal quickly and you're back in the saddle, so to speak, as soon as possible. :)

The really nice thing is that I actually have some time to read and write after working for home all day- instead of working at work and then working at home!

You did not see them burning in the West, my friend. There is some fell and terrible power trapped inside those jewels, and it is not the light of the Trees.”

Beautiful -and perfect.

 

This is a lovely scene, Narya- you say so much is such a short scene - and it is all rather gorgeous (I know I owe you a Finrod. Must try and get that done this holiday!!)



Author's Response: Thank you! :) I'm glad you like it. I have got very attached to this version of Finrod - and Celegorm. Haha, don't worry about "owing" me one; more Finrod is a good thing, whenever the muses happen to strike!

No matter how honorable, no matter how forgiving and no matter how impossibly nice Finrod is about the whole affair with Beren, no woman, no matter how fair or divine, is worth getting tortured by a dark lord over, especially magnificent Finrod.

Call me an Elf lover if you will. I just thought it was a complete and utter waste. Very VERY honorable, but a complete waste of a gorgeous being and a great and wise King.

The world was lesser for him not being in it.

I love how even after betrayal and the knowledge that his Cousins seize his throne even as he sits by the pool, Finrod shows utter love and loyalty to them. What a guy! His honor knows no bounds.

And no matter how terrible the crimes of Celegorm and Curufin against him, I still cannot bring myself to hate them. Neither can Finrod. I still love them as much as I did at the beginning. I guess we just understand what drives them.

Love him. Absolutely love him for his sacrifice. So sad. :(

Really love and enjoy every moment of these lovely stories and how you've kept this theme going, Narya! :D

Author's Response: I agree - not worth it at all! And you may be an Elf lover, but you're in good company here ;) interestingly, in my head I didn't have him being quite so pitying and forgiving; he just kind of wrote himself that way. And I can't bring myself to hate Celegorm and Curufin either. Such a tragic mess :( but I'm really pleased you enjoyed it, Gabriel, thank you so much for commenting.

Lovely moment here , Narya. On my latest reading of the Silmarillion I really focused on the Nargothrond arc and poor, dear Finrod. I hate the fact that he went with Beren. I don't think it was a worthy cause and certainly not worth Finrod's life. Just elope with her and leave your friends out of it Beren! And much as I despise what C&C did to Finrod in Nargothrond (he deserved better from family!) the involvement of a Silmaril made the situation unbearable. I love your scene here with Finrod and how he gets that the Oath has completely enmeshed his cousins. And being Finrod he pities them rather than resents them.

Author's Response: Thanks, Nelya! I hate it too; it was definitely not worth it. The more I re-read the Silm, the more I feel sorry for Celegorm and Curufin, hence this current patch of vignettes and one shots. I'm really glad you enjoyed it :)

No, it wasn’t worth it, and I have always grieved for Finrod. I think Beren was ignoble to ask him for help for some woman, no matter how beautiful. he was acting like a complete mooncalf as they say *rolls eyes*. Myself, I’d have killed him and dumped him in a hole somewhere, because I’m ignoble too ;)

Finrod deserved so much more, but I do think he did understand what drove Celegorm and Curufin, an Oath unbreakable, and that makes it so much worse, somehow.

Lovely vignette, Narya. So sad.

Author's Response: I agree - Beren should never have asked!! But Finrod was too honourable and couldn't say no. I'm really glad you liked it; this is one of the saddest parts of the Silm for me. Finrod's death is the one that makes me saddest because it felt utterly futile, and Beren and Luthien don't even seem that grateful afterwards!
