B2MeM Prompt 5: Regret  
Better late than never.

Drabble, Maglor, PG.


I looked at the young twins sleeping curled together on the big bed. They sometimes reminded me far too much of Ambarussa. I turned away, blew out the candle, and silently walked out of the room.

I sat down in a chair in the main room, a wine glass in hand. What had brought me here? No, I corrected myself, I knew what had.

The damned Oath. I shouldn’t have been so blindly loyal to Father. I could have refused. If I had the chance now, I would. But I would have still followed him, for Valinor was no home.

Wow - I like the notion that Maglor still would have chosen to leave Valinor. Very, very good!

Thank you! I can't imagine him staying in Valinor-- he had too much of his father in him.

Very insightful look at Maglor's thoughts -- I love the idea that he didn't consider Valinor home, and his regret at taking the oath is palpable. :) Very well done.

Thank you! I'm not sure any of the Fëanorians would consider Valinor home-- after they wandered all over it, they would need someplace new. I truly do not think they would be content there.

I don't think Valinor would be enough for the irrepressible Feanorians either. I really like your Maglor stuff and you're doing very well on B2mem too. ;-)

Thank you so much! Truly, the Valar had no handle on what the Elves were really like. Some, like the Vanyar, thrived there, but others didn't.
