B2MeM Prompt 13: Greatest Fear  
Drabble, Maglor, G.


I looked down at the shaky desk, not truly seeing it. I had refused Morgoth’s terms, but I had condemned my brother at the same time. Maitimo, one of my closest friends. The one who had been there for me through everything, who had given me his old harp, who had explained to me why Father sometimes acted as he did. The one who had listened to me when I babbled about the woman who eventually become my wife. The one who understood me better than anyone else.

Now he was captive in Angband, unreachable, and I could do nothing.

I'm wondering now if you have Maglor locked up in your basement or something. ;-) Another difficult/pivotal point in his life--where he was (or was he) technically the High King of the Noldor. He must have borne the brunt of the stress.

*grins* Nah, he just likes to talk to me.

Well, he was regent, so he was Kigh King in all but name. I really don't envy him having to deal with all the Noldor, especially after the loss of his father and brother.
