B2MeM Prompt 9: Hero  
In your opinion, what are the qualities that a hero must possess? Write down at least three of these qualities: honesty, integrity, doing the right thing even if it isn’t popular.

Drabble; Elrond and Finarfin


“We do not speak of him here,” Finarfin said as he swept along the corridor leading to his study, the newly arrived half-elf following behind him.

Elrond frowned. He knew quite well that Maglor Fëanorion was not the best of people, but he was far from the worst. He also knew that there was bitterness between the half-families, especially since the Darkening. And yet there was more to the Fëanorians than Kinslaying.

“Then I will,” Elrond said quietly, holding the door shut. Finarfin turned to look at him, eyebrows raised. “He is my father and I will not ignore that.”

Oooh! I love it. I have an incredible soft spot for Elrond-in-Valinor fics, and I swear this fulfils a wish I didn't even know I had. :P I love the characterisation of Elrond -- and your choice to have him embody your heroic qualities. :D

Shameless Elrond fangirl? Who, me?

Thank you! Elrond's my second favorite character after Maglor.

When I wrote the qualities down, the bunny just popped into my mind: his is the quiet heroism, not the flashy battle stuff (though he's obviously quite capable of that, too).

I like this one a lot! I've always been of the opinion that Elrond had a good relationship with Maedhros and Maglor so I liked that he still felt the same for them even when he went to Valinor. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! Obviously, I'm of the same opinion. :)

Good for you, Elrond! :D
Nice drabble: I think it really captures Elrond's relationship with Maglor.
Also, I'm glad to see you're a fellow Maglor fan XD

Thank you!

Yeah, Maglor and Elrond are my favorite characters. :)

Dropping by from the SWG links to say how much I'm enjoying your drabbles for B2Me!

I especially like Elrond's quiet determination in this one. Very nice characterisation :D

Thank you! I keep meaning to go through the SWG links, but haven't found the time yet.

I can't imagine Elrond being anything but determined given everything he's gone through. :)

Lovely drabble! You are kicking in an open door for me here. I also have always thought that Maglor must have been a good foster-parent and that Elrond would, of course, repay that with loyalty.

Thank you! I still find it hard to believe that there are those who think otherwise.
