Oh, my goodness, Imhiriel, this story left me in tears! I saw Larner's comment on the HASA front page, and had to see what the story was about, and I am sooo glad I read it.
I remember the Fall clearly, despiting living practically on the other side of the world... some employees of the German divisions of the company I worked for sent emails describing their experiences, and it was profoundly heartening.
And your story thrilled me, almost as if I was there, part of the scene.
My heart went out to Maglor, seeing the twins and being reminded of his beloved foster sons, so many millennia later.... But I was so glad when he overcame his self-imposed silence... I could almost hear him, singing like an angel!
This is a superb story, Imhiriel - thank you for sharing it!
