And I was excited to see YOU had posted, Narya. A beautiful piece of writing -reminded me of my first reading of LOTR.

Your fabulous descriptions:

 

A street, snow, street lamps, pretty houses, colourful storefronts, the blur of car headlights. 

‘Vermont.’ 

 

And now in quick succession images of a man walking. He was dressed for the cold, but there was a suggestion that it did not trouble him overmuch: his long, dark coat was unbuttoned, the scarf loose. Dark hair tumbled from under a hat. His face was pale as a cut pearl. Vanimórë had always found it interesting that even a camera could not see through the glamour, but with that firmly in place, still Maglor Fëanorion was too astonishingly beautiful to walk the streets of a Mortal town. He looked remote, troubled, too much like the face of the man Vanimórë had seen in Barad-dûr. 

 

Love the idea of Vanimore going 'in disguise' as himself!!

And I assume it's Vanya as Madam. Love the setting in Venice.



Author's Response:

Thank you, Ziggy :) 

 

Lol, yes, both he and Maglor were ‘disguised’ as themselves lol! 

 

Madam is the lady mentioned earlier when Van and Howard were talking, Héloïse :) But Van has known her for a long time.

ooh! The image of Maglor, at the Carnival, decked out in his Fëanorian finery, was glorious! and likely the only place he can display that legacy so openly!

Author's Response:

I loved writing that :D And yes, very few places that he could openly array himself as a Fëanorion prince :) 

 

Thank you Nelya :)

This is fabulous. Such amazing description. I guess my favorite is the magnificent visual of Maglor.

Maglor was dressed as a Fëanorion warrior prince. With the mist glowing around him, he looked as if he had stepped out of the remote past, a figure of legend.

The delicate mail shimmered; overlapping bands of mail gleamed. The great helm, curving inward and upward was surmounted by plumes that added over a foot to Maglor’s already impressive height. Upon his breast, incised and set with gems, bloomed the flaming star of the House of Fëanor.


And Vanimore's reaction to him:

Vanimórë’s heart exploded with pride. He wanted to exclaim: ‘Bravo!’, to burst out laughing. There was a flash of silver eyes as Maglor tilted his chin in an oh-so-familiar, arrogant gesture; it showed the line of his jaw marble-hard as statuary. Under the line of the straight nose, his scrolled mouth was shut hard.

Just perfect!!!

Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Oshun :) I really enjoyed writing Maglor dressing as ‘himself’ for the Carnival :)

I just love the sense of danger that surrounds Maglor in this, and the hints at what he's done in the past to keep himself hidden and safe. And I do feel sorry for Jason in a way. I think most people would be taken in :-( and that he couldn't let go at the end, even to save his own skin...

The depiction of Venice at carnival time is luscious - all those colours and silks and tulles - and yet sinister too, with the masks and the mist and the blurring of time periods together. Wonderful.

Author's Response:

I loved writing dangerous! Maglor :) And his amour! Well, I feel a bit sorry for Jason, too, but Vanimórë has seen this process before and although this is nowhere near a strong, it’s only going to get worse and turn him quite insane. 

 

Thank you, once I had looked into Carnival, it was lovely to write it!
