Very well done. Your portrayal of Maglos was quite unique, yet holds within it all the sorrows of the first age. However, if would have been good if you hinted more things about not just the kinslaying, but the capture of Elros and Elrond, although your mention of Earendil the mariner helps. Interesting characterisation of Boromir and Faramir, and awesome choices of characters; I think both sons of Denethor can relate to this- in childhood and as adults.

This is what talent looks like. Thank you, so much, for writing and sharing. Probably one of the best, if not the best, depictions of Maglor I've read. The writing was just superb and wonderfully in keeping with the spirit of Tolkien.

Hi! I'm the same one who recently sent you a message about this story from Open Scrolls. Just wanted to let you know that I'm recommending it on the Brothers of Gondor message board today! ()

This is a truly wonderful story. I absolutely LOVE how you blended the Silmarillion with TA Middle-Earth. Many thanks indeed for showing Maglor! I loved his characterization, not to mention showing the closeness between Boromir and Faramir. And I love how the roles have been reversed in a way that doesn’t really happen in fanfic; it’s Boromir who’s a bit out of sorts, if not a bit scared and in need of comfort while of course Faramir keeps it together.
Funny, its never occured to me about the omens, but it is true (of course I had to check the Encyclopedia of Arda to refresh my memory). Anyway, great

A unique and fascinating encounter between the young Brothers Mir and an elf out of earlier ages. I love the characterization of the boys. Faramir's piping up with the mention of their descent from the line of Numenor was priceless, and very credible!
I did not understand Maglor's reference to two legs versus four when he spoke of Denethor.
