Lotr_Silm: Brothers by Hedonistbyheart Lotr_Silm: Brothers by Hedonistbyheart
This is inspired by a fanfic I've recently read, but unfortunately I've forgotten the name of it^^;

Elrond and Elros have just been captured and because they are tiny and terrified, Maglor has sung them to sleep, keeping them close as he himself nods off, near a warming fire. While they sleep, Maedhros keeps vigil, brushing a strand of hair from his only remaining brother's face.

I always waver between crying a river or melting with the amount of fluff in this part of the story. It's a pity it's only a couple of sentences long in the Silmarillion:XD:

The fanfic wasn't Four Hands Around by French Pony, was it?

No, I like that one a lot and I have read it before, but it was a fic that began at the sacking of Sirion, I'm pretty sure^^

The heartache! Elrond and Elros are so alone and the remaining Feanorians have just lost their younger brother(s).

Exactly! It must have been a bit of a slap in the face to find those two, right after they lost their own twin(s):/ Maglor loved them regardless though:)

I take the raising of Elrond and Elros as a reclaiming of lost innocence. Just because Amabrussa was the youngest, it doesn't mean they were the most noble. Theoretically they had the fewest memories of Valinor and were born when Feanor and Nerdanel were already past their golden happiness.

Yeah maybe it could be seen like that, but I don't think Maglor took them in to try and reclaim his own innocence, both he and Maedhros were in far too deep for that^^;
As for Ambarussa, their brothers would have loved them regardless of whether they were noble or not and the loss would still have hurt, I think.

Ohh I love all these Silmarillion drawings of yours! ;w; This is one of my favourite parts of the book too! They are such a tragic, beautiful family.
