    Summary

    "...And it doesn’t stop there. It’s not just the police. Falcon’s a fugitive now, what, for violating the Sokovia Accords to aid an American citizen stripped of his rights and freedom? An American citizen and serviceman held without charges, without an attorney, illegally and against his will? We had a President who violated the Geneva Conventions, passed the Patriot Act against all provisions in the Constitution—and people think Sam Wilson, an American soldier and an Avenger, is a criminal—?"

    Summary

    “If you did play chess," Ross said, "you’d remember that a pawn can become a queen. The most powerful piece on the board, Parker, remember that? But—” Ross smiled— “only if it obeys.”

    He adjusted his tie, stood, and looked down at Peter. “I’ll ask you again,” he said. “Eventually. You may feel differently after you’ve been living in a six-by-six cube without sunlight or fresh air for a few years.”

    “What pawns do,” Peter said, voice shaking slightly, “is sacrifice themselves for the greater good. I have no regrets.”

    He had a lot of regrets.

    Like, a lot. A crapton. A shitload. An overloaded dumpsterful.

    “When I visit you on the Raft,” Ross said, “you’ll be old enough to grow a beard.” The cell door clicked shut behind him.

    Summary

    About the Nauglamír and the other side of the story. Of culture clash, betrayal, and lost art.

    “Do you know, Gimli, I would be happy to hear about your people’s memory of the Great Necklace, and the terrible dispute that led to the sack of Doriath. It was a tragedy of deep import."

    Gimli grew serious; he sat up and looked at Elrond for a long moment with grave, dark eyes. “Forgive me, Lord Elrond, but I don’t think you would. Be happy, I mean, when you heard our account of the thing."

    Summary

    Upon arriving to the shores of Valinor, Elrond cannot bring himself to lift his gaze at Elwing or Earendil. It is simply impossible to accept them as his parents.

    It’s a mockery—he feels—for such impostors to take claim of him as a son when they were not there to care for him.

    As if they spent the grueling, blood soaked years sheltering him and poured in the time and the effort that it took to raise him.

    That right belongs to two elves that Elrond may never see again.

    After harsh words are exchanged, Elrond concludes that coming to Valinor was a mistake.
    His heart remains deep in the roots of Arda with his sons, his daughter and his foster father.

    And Elrond is not the only elf who shares this sentiment. He has an entire society of Silvan elves whose culture is just dying to be eradicated standing right behind him.
