    Summary

    "The point is that Maglor takes in the twins because Maedhros had been too foolish in that moment to counter his brother with any tenacity. Maglor had seemed cast in a beautiful resolve; amid the wreckage they had wrought, his brother looked almost like he could love being shackled to this bruised and muted life lived with Maedhros."

    Two unreliable narrators in purgatory narrate how they come to find, and then leave, Elrond and Elros.

    Summary

    The truest help we can render an afflicted man is not to take his burden from him, but to call out his best energy, that he may be able to bear the burden. —Phillips Brooks

    Maedhros never jumps, and Maglor never wanders.

    Summary

    “The cloak suited you once.”

    “How munificent that word is. It ‘endured’ me, perhaps, so long as it could busy itself swallowing me whole.”

    *

    An intermezzo, cloak-clad, before the Nirnaeth Arnoediad.
    (Day 4 of Tolkien Ekphrasis Week)

    Summary

    Maglor knows his brother blames him for Thangorodrim, but that just means he'll have to try all the harder to make him proud with his defense of the Gap.

    (Maglor doesn't know quite as much as he thinks he does.)
