Narya, they're constantly touring through Europe and the USA, and sometimes even farther abroad. You might be able to find a concert close to you eventually. And I totally agree about the concert!

Ysilme, that does sound wonderful, I am so jealous. There's something magical about a really good concert.

I've been to the most wonderful concert yesterday, Swedish Folk string trio Väsen. The music was so beautiful, and it felt so much like Middle-earth, too. (now I need to figure out

Sign of a good fic, if you ask me :)

Summary: How do you pass the time when you know you're facing eternity?

Maglor agrees to appear in a student production of The Pirates of Penzance, and gets more than he bargained for.

A shamelessly fluffy love letter to my alma mater, to student life, to Maglor (of course), and to the joy of friendship in unexpected places.

Story notes:
A couple of people have asked me if I have more stories about Maglor and Claire (who appears in Nocturne and Of Lapwings, Hares and Speckled Eggs). The answer is yes – although both of those fics and this one are intended to stand alone, so don't feel like you can't start here.

A word of warning: this fic is both self-indulgent and, in places, tooth-rottingly fluffy. Even so, the idea has been floating around in my head for a while, refusing to go away, and over the months it has accumulated in scraps and snippets in my notebooks. Today in particular I'm missing wonderful St Andrews, where I spent four years as an undergraduate, and this seemed like the perfect thing to start polishing up and posting.

Rated Teen for language. Allusions later in the story to grief and mental health issues.

7. Ah! Leave Me Not to Pine Alone by Narya [Reviews - 4] (4772 words)
Well, this chapter was a bit of an effort. Turns out that having a scene in your head for nine years is no guarantee of it being easy to write. Thank you to Gabriel for being honest about what wasn't working, but I think it's there now, or as close as it'll ever be.
8. Take Heart by Narya [Reviews - 4] (5881 words)
This chapter got a little heavy. Warning for references to acute stress and thoughts of self harm/suicide.
9. The Paradox by Narya [Reviews - 4] (4016 words)
Credit to Spiced Wine here - there is a conversation between Rosie and Claire in this chapter that is very like the one they have in Summerland. I didn't realise how alike the two scenes are until I re-read this chapter ahead of posting, it must have been a subconscious thing; I hope you don't mind!! :)
