B2MeM Prompt 19: Wisdom  
Drabble and a half, Maglor and Elrond, G.

Star

I lay next to second father, looking at the stars. “Why you are so quiet tonight?”

“I’m remembering Father and how he loved to look at the stars.” I heard him tilt his head toward me, crinkling the grass beneath him. “Elrond, Father was brilliant, but he should have listened to others. Promise me you’ll do that?”

“Of course.”

“And treat your brother as if you might lose him-- in the war, you can never be sure you won’t.”

I nodded, knowing Maglor was paying attention to me. He drew me into a hug, comforting me in my confusion.

“And teach your children the stars, for they will bring comfort even in the darkest of times.”

He fell silent, and I focused my eyes on the new star that meant at least one of my first parents was alive. Yes, I would teach them the stars, starting with that one.

Your Maglor is so fatherly, I'm enjoying all your Maglor and Elrond/Elros stuff. I liked his take on his own father here.

Well, he probably helped raise his five younger brothers, so he had some experiance. :P

As for Fëanor, I think Maglor's had time to dwell on things, and how events could have been avoided.

Oh, of course Maglor would have some good memories of his father - this was lovely!

Thank you! Yes, Fëanor wasn't *all* bad. :P
