Reviews For ~ Blood Kin ~

“And so, we will be damned together!”

That was such a beautiful line to read

Author's Response:

Thank you, Astorey :) That was a deliberate hearking back to Fëanor saying the same to Fingolfin.

Absolutely fair argument!
I really feel for Tindomion, but fortunately have read Magnificat, so know there will be a happy ending in a few thousand years time!
Thank you - I love this universe.

Author's Response:

I think there were arguments on both sides. Of course the One Ring should have been destroyed then, and perhaps if Glorfindel or Elrond or Tindómion had been the ones to take it, it may have been, but forcing Isildur to give it up, or worse, would have had repucussions. Tindómion, however, being Fëanorion, and having lost Gil-galad will never really forgive Elrond, although he will be absolutely loyal to Imladris. And yes, eventually the ending will be happier. 

 

Thank you so very much, Jules, that's so kind :)

It was Tindómion broke the tableau of quiet. Moving suddenly, swift and fluid, he drew his dagger, went down on one knee before Glorfindel and cut the blade across his palm. 

‘Blood-oath, Prince Glorfindel Finarfinion. My service to thee.’ 

 

Glorfindel experienced a shock like a bared nerve. In Middle-earth some knew who he was, and tacitly ignored it: disowned son of Finarfin, preferring to remember him as Glorfindel of Gondolin, Lord of the House of the Golden Flower, who died at Cristhorn, and to call him that. But Tindómion gave him back his name. 

 

Taking his own dagger, Glorfindel repeated the cut, clasped Tindómion’s hand and raised him. Their blood mingled, as did all the blood that flowed between them. 

 

‘I accept thine allegiance, Tindómion Maglorion Fëanorion.’ Their eyes met, clashed and held. If Tindómion could name, so could Glorfindel, and just as true. Thou wilt accept thy birth and blood, my friend. 

‘Allegiance, but not service,’ he said. ‘We fight as blood-kin.’ 

 

Long black lashes dropped over the silver eyes, then rose again. 

‘As blood-kin,’ Tindómion repeated. ‘Until death takes us, or the High King comes again.’ 

oh god- that was SO THRILLING!!!! I did feel a bit sorry for Elrond that Tindomion called him out but he is right and Elrond could have just slipped him into the fire with the Ring:) wonderfully visual and textured descriptions, as always!!! Beautiful.



Author's Response:

Thank you, Ziggy, this is the sequel to 'Fire in the Night' one-shot. I always wrote that it was Glorfindel who persuaded a grieving Tindómion to come to Imladris, but also (and so have you) that Tindómion was never happy with Elrond, after. (Although he did love Elrond's sons :)
