Yes, the world felt all clean and fresh today - we had a bit of a storm last night but not as dramatic as I was hoping!

We had two storms, late evening and about 1.15, really energetic, incredible lightning! It’s nice this morning though!

Title: People of the Ice by Fadesintothewest
Rated: Mature [Reviews - 17]
Summary: Hi I am back!!!

The Fëanorians find that their kin who crossed the Ice have been utterly changed. Fingon is utterly changed. All of them are.

This Fingon-centric story is an exploration of Fingolfin's host and the impact of the Grinding Ice on who they became as a people once they arrived to MIddle Earth. They are often portrayed as not being changed much by the Helcaraxë. This story presents a different interpretation, exploring the darker edges of elven psyche. In attempt to reconcile some gaps between canon and the length of time it takes Fingon to go out and rescue Maedhros this story explores why that time elapsed. Get ready for a not so nice Fingon, hardened by the many losses of his People and the betrayal Maedhros.

Really great start--I am intrigued to see where this will go. I really like the idea of haggard and hardened Noldor--the Helcaraxë was a bitterly difficult path and you have made that clear with their appearance and their anger.
The mention of Findarato's lost beauty just confirms it. The loss of Arakano is fresh for them also.
I am curious as to what compels this version of Findekano to go after Maedhros because Ma

Author's Response: Thank you for the review. I often wondered about how the Helcaraxë would impact FIngolfin's host. More than that I imagine it had to have some profound shift in who they were individually and as a people. It will hopefully makes sense when Findekano goes after Maedhros, and hopefully the sacrifice will be more apparent! Thanks again!

This is such a fascinating Findekano--although I must call him Fingon from now on!
I really liked the idea of the Elven Magic-the talismans in the horses manes, the songs and words of power. I've always wondered why Maglor didn't use his voice--I would think words and songs of power would be even more powerful with his voice.

Author's Response: I am so glad you find it fascinating. It seems to me so much happened behind the pages as it were of the story that we get to fill in those gaps. How happy I am to return to this story here and find these reviews. Thanks again for reviewing!

I really like this! Having just written and posted a fic about Maedhros and Maglor sending the twins away during the War of Wrath this really resonated with me.
I see Maedhros being the instigator too. He's rational and realistic about it. It is hard for both of them to give them up but I don't think Maglor willingly would have without Maedhros' influence.
Such a wrench for both of them--I see their time with the twins as their best time since before the Nirnaeth

Author's Response:

*I see their time with the twins as their best time since before the Nirnaeth* This, yes. Exactly. Some touch of warmth and family, a sense of normalcy in amongst all that darkness. I admit I don't write either Maedhros or Maglor often, but that was very much what spoke to me when I started this. The fact that you liked what I did here after having just written the same character mix and theme yourself is a great compliment - I know finding someone else's version soon after doesn't always work. I want to read your fic now - it is actually on my 'to read' list for SWG - but I'll leave it till tomorrow when I'm properly awake. 

Apologies for the late response too. Somehow 'notifications' got turned off in my preferences. I have no idea how, other than the fact that efiction sites always hate me, lol. Again, thank you :)
