Return to MeAuthor: dawn_felagundRating:
bloody and scary/disturbing imagery, discussion of death, some sexualitySummary:
Finafin (Arafinwë) is called to the Halls of Mandos to assist Namo in the re-embodiment of Finrod (Findarato).
I wrote this story as a holiday gift for fanged_geranium
, who graced me with the challenge to write a story that included a conversation between grown-up Finrod and Finarfin. Immediately, upon reading her request, this story started to spin itself in my mind, and it has proven a plotbunny that is difficult to dislodge. It was posted in my LiveJournal with the rest of my holiday gift fics
in late December, but I am posting it here and now in honor of Finarfin Appreciation Month.
This is actually the first chapter of what will eventually be a novella about Finrod's return to Valinor. This chapter with his father, though, I think stands well enough on its own.
I have done no revision on this story, so comments--both good and bad--are welcome. I owe my gratitude to fanged_geranium
for the challenge and to rhapsody11
for giving me the nudge to make good on my pledge to honor Finarfin this month. Thank you!( Return to Me )
