B2MeM Prompt 15: Ides of March  
Drabble, Fëanor, G.


I looked at the gems shining in the dark room. I knew they were special, given their potential as lighting. But they weren’t special enough.

I spent the next few years happily with Nerdanel, never forgetting my projects, though she had her own. We raised our children, watched some of them start families of their own. But I always searched for the next project, the next thing to discover, to create.

It took many years, with many setbacks, until I finally created what I had longed to make: three gems, shining with the light of the Two Trees. The Silmarils.

I almost feel like there should be ominous background music to go with this - it gave me shivers! It's difficult knowing that he created them with nothing but professional curiosity and drive in mind and they wound up creating so much ruin.

Beautifully written. :D

*grins* Good!

It is difficult knowing that, which is why it was perfect for this prompt. :P Fëanor certainly did disturb the universe.

Thank you!

I sometimes wish that he didn't create them at all, knowing all the trouble they caused. ;-(

I like this - the notion that it's a scientist's curiosity that led to the Silmarils' creation. Really nicely done!

I see Fëanor as the ultimate scientist-- he wants to know everything and he isn't ashamed of his work, or what people think about him for doing it.

Thank you! :D
