I am nit surprised, Narya, they were wonderful ideas

It's literally just for the exchange, there's no expectation on anyone else to write anything for it :) I'll leave it up though. I gave myself some ideas when I was writing it, tbh...

I don’t think yours are ‘out there’, just quite deep :)

Or if I am over with her and the internet there is often spotty

But at some point. Sometimes I write in the hospital if I am waiting for Mum, but often I can’t get internet so I just do some writing

Well, if you keep your letter up, Narya, I can look at it, and see if I get any ideas, I don’t mean for this exchange

And in all fairness, the only obligation on the writer/artist is to produce something with the characters matched on and avoid DNWs, not to follow the prompts and worldbuilding tags.

Some of mine are a bit out there, I doubt I'll get matched on any of the obscure stuff.

Oh gosh, Spiced, I wouldn't expect you to <3 you have so much going on! Although it was your wonderful Coldagnir who prompted me to ask for original Balrog characters ;)

Your requests were interesting though, Narya, a bit beyond me, though!

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.
