    Summary

    "Maedhros sought destruction body and spirit, and found both. When Mandos summoned him, he refused, and first of them all he has been taken by the void that they swore themselves to. He is not in the world, and will not come again. Deeper darknesses are there than that which Morgoth made below Thangorodrim!” Fingon paused and looked at Finrod. “Should I not then have killed him as he asked me?”

    “No!” said Finrod, but Turgon said nothing.

    Sam grew even more upset. “Now that’s not right,” he said, “that can’t be right! Just or not – and I don’t know that it is, begging your pardon, sir – still, no story should end that way!”

    Summary

    “Come into the light,” he said slowly.

    “You don’t need it to see me.” The voice was so familiar, so unbearably familiar.

    “Nonetheless.”

    After a moment there was motion among the trees, and the firelight fell on the figure of a solitary man, his feet bare and his hair unbound, wrapped in plain grey. Finrod didn’t rise to greet him, but lifted his head and looked him up and down: the slender frame, the tension in his bearing, the features whose fineness bordered on delicacy.

    “Curufinwë Atarinkë,” he said at last, giving each syllable of the name its full weight. “You look awful.”

    Summary

    Letters between Elemmírë, the great poet-singer of the Vanyar and Amárië, beloved of Finrod, and between Ingwion, Captain of the Vanyar Host in the War of Wrath, and his father Ingwë, High King of the Elves.

    With the odd intrusion from Finrod, because Finrod likes to turn up uninvited and just start doing his thing.
