He found Maedhros stroking Elros’ head while he slept and a thick fog of despair was drawn about Maedhros like a cloak. Even then Elrond perceived it. He had reached out to the stump with its soft skin, like something unformed or unfinished, and stroked away the dull ache he knew was in the bones of the man who had driven his mother to the edge of the window, had leaned put after her screaming revenge, had scooped him up out of the flames and blood and screaming and taken him away. And then he had told Maedhros Nelyafinwë Feänorion, Scourge of the Gap and Hammer of the West, kinslayer, kidnapper, murderer, that he should stop scratching it.

 

It's one of the things I find very hard to read in any fic: Maedhros and Maglor's feelings and despair toward the end.

 

Beautifully written, Ziggy 



Author's Response:

Thank you so much, Spiced Wine. I have been so busy with work and this cv19 crisis that I have had no time really for writing, or reading for that matter. I had this sitting on my laptop and it's ust given me the kickstart I needed. Yes- their tragic story is very hard- Tolkien really punishes Maedhros, it's strange because he makes him heroic AND punishes him nevertheless. The idea that the SIlmarils burn them is a huge sanction and rejection. I like to think they didn't.
