Aragorn can't join - by emotionally blackmailing Legolas to accompany him on the Paths of the Dead, he's firmly on my blacklist!

SPCL? Society for prevention of cruelty to Legolas? RSPCL if Aragorn joins!

Yay, Nelya! We can be founder members of SACL. I tried to think of something with a better acronym - I'm open to suggestions!

Naledi I'm with you on the Society Against Cruelty to Legolas (SACL)!! ;-) but who are we kidding--we read it all and love it anyway, despite the misadventures of our dear Elf!

I think it’s a sensible choice. Aragorn has a large backstory going back many years, so it was always going to be one of their first choices.

It's an expensive gamble they have taken--they have to nail this first season. Also the TolkienEstate is far more involved in this one I hear.

A quite big "if", I'd say. Just look what mess was made out of the Hobbit movie. Nowadays I tend to be a bit cynical. So I say the series is good if it will be at least not cringeworthy.

As well as Elladan and Elrohir and the Rangers of the North. It could be a hit if done right. Plus the Arwen love interest.

I am actually relieved the Amazon series is starting with young Aragorn. There is much canon content to work with, he's a familiar character and chance to see Glorfindel, Gilraen

And that's how they learn about the weaknesses of dragons! From the little guy Aegnor adopted.

Story notes:

Author's Note: Hey, there. This might be part of a series but you are not required to read 'The World breaks Everyone' in order to understand this story since it'll evolve around Fingon and the people in his life. All what you need to know that Maglor isn't the sanest person around but he tries at least. What you should know beforehand is that Aredhel is going to Fingolfin's second child, not Turgon. The changes are subtle, but important. Now, please read the warnings and then enjoy the fic.

Stuff that could make you uncomfortable: Incest! So much incest. Mainly between Fingon and Maedhros which is why you need to be prepared for some underage, at least in the beginning. There are also mentions of violence and torture later on (well, aftermath of Angband, you know the deal) and Maglor's own brand of insanity. Biggest issue might be Fingon being a minor at the first chapter. Sex is mentioned and while Fingon gives his enthusiastic consent, Maedhros is an adult here and basically taking advantage. No that Fingon cares, but still.

I've also taken the liberty to use Fingon's Sindarin Name in the text flow. I know that not all readers are used to the Quenya Names but they'll appear on occasion. And finally: the title is actually the name of an existing cognitive distortion.

6. VI. Princes by mangacrack [Reviews - 2] (5387 words)

I'm baaack, finally. Insane summer work is done and I can go back to writing. Thanks you cheekybeak and Encairion for being patient and supportive as always. Go ahead and enjoy the chapter. Which is titled 'Princes' but really be called 'Politics' ... I've made a chart to keep track of all the government stuff I keep mentioning. Just call out, if you want to take a look at it. Same goes for the family, since Findis and Irime's children will pop up regularly from now on.

Reminder: Angrod is called Angaráto and the eldest son of Finarfin in the universe.
Warning: this chapter isn't beta read. I'll go over it once I've patience for it but since I kept you waiting since March I thought it best to post the chapter as soon as possible.


7. VII. Lovers by mangacrack [Reviews - 1] (6263 words)

Sexy times ahead. I suggest you to read it at least once, this is more about Fingon's psyche than author loving to write smut. In addition .... I've reached the point were some stuff are certainly not canon anymore, but I hesitate to slap the label 'canon divergence' on it because it'd be misleading. While the timeline in this fic may wobble and tends to take detours it rejoins book events eventually. Just saying.


8. Interlude: Behind the Mirror I by mangacrack [Reviews - 0] (2707 words)

I swear I just wanted to write fills for my bingo card! No idea what happened, but at some point I made the mistake of keep writing from Maitimo's POV. Also be aware of slight dub-con. It's off-screen, but an allusion to Chapter 3, beware. In the end you get this interlude, because Fingon's perspective is so truly fucked up. Well, not that Maitimo's is better, but he deserves to get a voice.


9. Interlude: Behind the Mirror II by mangacrack [Reviews - 1] (3236 words)

Warning: off-screen dub-con sex (Fingon/OMC, hurt/comfort


10. Interlude: Behind the Mirror III by mangacrack [Reviews - 0] (3047 words)

I swear I was already halfway through with the next chapter as my muse demanded that I write another interlude before going back to the main story. I fear it's mostly porn, but there can never be enough of that. Never, because I recently stumpled over an entire list of idea with Maedhros being in control and Fingon getting all tingly because of it.

Warnings: explicit sex, porn with feelings, dom/sub undertones
