The world is not remade, but it is far changed from the one he remembered. The Valar work in mysterious ways, but they are not so inattentive to ignore the rising threat of Sauron.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is such a fantastic concept for a fic, but it's also so well done and well written that it's inspiring me to write more. There are some big reunions in this fic that I'm looking forward to, but the journey getting there is fantastic so far. I've read the first six chapters twice now!

    I almost have no words to describe how much I love this! Seeing things from Uinen's point of view is so refreshing.

    For being the purest-hearted Feanorion, Celebrimbor sure does have a rough life! But he embodies hope and determination, and only grows stronger as he grows older.

    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."

    I can't recommend this story enough. It's a superbly well-written tale of how the dwarves view what happened with the Nauglamir and silmaril in Doriath and its aftermath, and how three ancient elves deal with hearing this side.

    A lovely and exceedingly realistic look at what it could be like if Maglor returned to Valinor after ages wandering Middle-earth. It's not easy, but coming back is worth it in the end. Really loved this fic.
