Story Summary

This is a birthday gift for Kenaz. A ficlet involving Maglor and Maedhros, which is set in the Time of the Trees in Formenos. It is set in the same universe as my story Maitimo and Findekáno and occurs a couple of years earlier. (Slash with no explicit sexual references--Maedhros has a crush on Fingon.)

>>Macalaurë mentally thanked Ilúvatar that he had inherited his father's coloring and not that of his mother. Redheads had such difficulty in hiding their emotions, even those who, like his brother, had attained far greater self-mastery than he had.

A wonderful glimpse at beginnings.  We have an undeniable infatuation, unacceptable morally and politically, and the younger brother who finds it at once amusing and romantic, yet sees the gravity of the subject.  Very nicely done, particularly with Maedhros' shifting responses - his need to confide and confused - shameful - feelings are shown quite vividly.

Thanks, erunyauve, for reading and commenting. I guess it is a bit of prequel to my main storyline. I wanted to write down some of the backstory and had a wonderful opportunity when I solicited a gift request and got a prompt that would allow me to do so. I was very pleased that you saw the conflicts and ambiguities I hoped would come through.
