Reviewed by: Súlriel -- Score: 4

Having seen the incompletes and various incarnations of this series of drabbles, I can only read in awe and sit back with a show of respect. Well done. You have very well captured not just the stark emotional states, but in a unique visual way. Each ficlet being different from the others, but unique in it's own way so clearly reflects the sons themselves that a reader can't help but be pulled into this tragic story.

An ambitious set of drabbles chronicling the fates of the house of Feanor. I particularly liked the ending to the drabble dealing with Curufin; his confrontation with the angry young Elwing. Intriguing interplay between the Feanorians and the Silmarils.
