The Return of Elrond's Precious!  by Calairiel Malromiel 2 Review(s)
RenataReviewed Chapter: 2 on 8/6/2021
I'm glad, I guess, that Elrond and Elros are reunited.

It seems to me, though, that if a mortal (Elros) can come to Valinor, then that also leaves the door open for Aragorn...

Author Reply: And Andreth, too, right? lol! Fix all the heartbreaking holes Tolkien left us poor readers!

I will admit a lot of my stories are my own self-indulgent "Fix-its!" Eluréd and Elurín has always been a huge one for me! The separation of Elrond and Elros is the other. Mostly for Elrond's sake as he's been bereft of family more than anyone, save Nerdanel.

My "reason" for giving Elros back to Elrond was a selfish one, but I also premised it by saying "The Powers" have discovered Elrond will have important tasks ahead of him and he'll need his brother to help him - it was also my way of concluding this series. But, more plot Bunnies have occurred since then and I might have some additions to it - who knows?

Haa bless you dear. If I could hug you I would. The last paragraph caught me off guard and the reunion (finally) almost made me tear and I'm a grown man lol!


Love love love this.

Question though, if Elros was sent from the Timeless Halls that means he is a spirit right? How come he can stay in Aman till Dagor Dagoroth? Or is he being reembodied?

Author Reply: Thank you and I'm very glad you enjoyed it!

No re-embodiment needed. Elros is like the Maiar now - as is Fingolfin. They can both make their own bodies - and shape-shift.

They're on a higher esoteric level, but let's face it - those who lived in Arda for any length of time got quirky (i.e. Aiwendil and Olórin).

So I can see Fingolfin and Elros becoming quite friendly because they understand each other - which will creep Elrond out. LoL

And before you ask, there will be no Andreth - she's moved on. Part of the "things" Elros can't talk about (that's classified - lol).
