    Summary

    /rhetoric: n. language that is intended to influence people and that may not be honest or reasonable/

    The Second Kinslaying left several high-level vacancies in the command structure at Amon Ereb. Amras finds himself in need of a public relations expert. Luckily, he has the most convincing voice of the Noldor on hand--or he would, if he could just get Maglor to be of use. Maglor, however, remains resolutely unhelpful.

    Summary

    Primula was red-faced and exhausted by the end of the birth, and if she made a rude gesture at her husband and turned away sleepily, well, the midwife had seen worse.

    So Drogo was left holding the baby in bemused confusion. As new parents are wont to do, he counted all the toes and fingers, marvelled at the child’s eyes, and then set out looking to see if there was yet a soul mark on his son’s skin.

    There was.

    The script was all long tails and swoops that ended in jagged flicks with characters that seemed more made of unpronounceable accents than actual letter, but the hand that wrote it was smooth and practised, almost mechanical in its precision.

    "Curious," said Drogo, peering at the mark upon his thigh. "I've never seen anything like it."

    The midwife seemed baffled by it, too, and when Primula woke he showed her and then they were three for three.

    Summary

    The tale of the boy who stood up to change the world, and the half-brother who wanted to stand at his side, but if he couldn’t have that, let him have everything else.

    The tale of the Genius and the Shepherd as they were known by some, the Madman and the Traitor by others, but who were they in each other’s eyes?

    The tale of Fëanor and Fingolfin.

    “I refuse to accept the Noldor are bound to the starless midnight of these petty lives the Valar have boxed us into. I refuse to accept we will never walk through these shadows and into the bright daybreak of freedom!” –Fëanor in The Revolutionary and the Usurper
