    Summary

    "The deathless ones will sweep you off to the world's end... where life will glide on in ease." - Homer, The Odyssey.

    Elrond Peredhel has finally arrived on the shore of the Undying Lands, but he cannot help but feel that he is a failure, as a lord, as a husband, as a father, as a man. He is content to live the rest of his days in obscurity, but when Maglor arrives, shipwrecked and half-starved on the shores of Valinor, Nerdanel and Maglor's wife beg him to advocate for the last of the Fëanorians, to prevent him from suffering the punishment of the Kinslayers. As he reveals his memories of Maglor, he reconciles with his wife, but will he manage to save Maglor from the vengeance of his kin?

    Please note that this work will contain mentions of sexual assault that may be traumatizing, and will also contain consensual scenes of an explicit nature. There will also be mentions of past violence, including murder.

    I've come back and read this for a second time because it's such a beautiful fic that makes me feel so many things and is so powerful and well-written.

    A very bittersweet but appropriate conclusion of Maglor's time in Middle-earth. Beautifully written, with a Gandalf who's perfectly in character.

    Summary

    “I love you in a way that is unnatural.”

    “But you love me.”

    “Aye.”

    He would never forget that whispered utterance or the pleading in Maedhros’ gaze. It was something Fingon had held onto for centuries, long after they had ceased to walk the same path, long after the wounds of their houses had stained the affection they had once nursed in the dark confines of Maedhros’ bed.

    This is the perfect Fingon/Maedhros story. Angst, centuries of longing, family issues, self-hatred, incredible persistence -- basically everything that makes me love this pairing.
