What a beautiful and heartwrenching vignette. For a moment I hope that there will be a chapter two, written from Maedhros perspective, but I love the way Ann Arien crawled into Fingon's heart & head.

This piece does a really good job of not feminizing either of the leading characters. They are certainly in love, but their love is the quiet, strong sort that doesn't at all undercut the warriors and princes that they were. It's a difficult balance to strike, and you handle it nicely.

A bit of angsty Elf-slash. I am afraid I am not conversant enough with the Silm to follow it.
