Oh! Narya!

This was so very sad. Especially learning what became of the 306 soldiers in WWI. How terrible. 306, wow! :(

And this story just makes me love Maglor even more than before.

I loved the end where she gripped his hand so hard in shared understanding and grief. It doesn't matter where Maglor received his scars. War is war.

Very sobering.

Author's Response: 306 is just the figures for Britain and the Commonwealth; I don't have stats for the rest of the allies, or for the central powers. Sobering indeed. I'm pleased that the story spoke to you, and that it made you love Maglor more (is that possible, at this point? :) )

Absolutely chilling, Narya. So unfair and cruel--the lack of understanding of the trauma.

Maglor, even in his few words, is am arresting presence here. His familiarity with the PTSD--his own and the years he lived it day by day with Maedhros--the scars that are not just on the surface, the devastation of the trenches. Very poignant and devastating.

Author's Response: I know. What makes it even worse is, it isn't as though they didn't understand it was a genuine condition. Nobody would have been expected to go on with a wounded arm or leg, but because it was in the mind it was somehow considered "lesser," and it's a stigma people still have to deal with. Of course, Maglor understands completely :(

This is really poignant and affecting, Narya. Disgraceful that it took so long to pardon those poor boys. Well done for writing it.x



Author's Response: Thanks, ziggy. I know - almost 90 years. Unbelievable. x

Oh, god this is so sad. My great grandmother was married twice and lost 3 sons in WWI. And at my first school in Uffington, the Janitor suffered what they then called ‘shell shock’ Of course Maglor would understand, he suffered PTSD himself, I’m sure.

I sbolutely love how you portray Maglor in the modern age!

Author's Response: It's astonishing - even now, so many people remember someone who suffered from it, or have family stories. And yes, I believe you're right; I think he did.

He writes himself, really; I just watch and listen, and try to keep up. Thank you so much for your kind words.
