(Open)

Who: Maedhros & Open
Broadcast: Fleetwide
Action: Huntress
When: Backdated slightly for gifts.

(Joy and grief are mingled in what he receives. Maedhros has set his focus on others either enjoying what they received or despairing over them. It's easier, isn't it?

A breath before the plunge.

He sets a portrait on a table, shakily touching each face with exceptional tenderness. There is a dark father, a fiery mother and seven sons. Maedhros himself is frozen there embracing two little brothers who share his hair color. They are undeniably twins.

Six births and he remembers all of them. The young bright faces are both beloved and shunned. He rests his chin on his arm, peering at them - making himself do so before he speaks, voice rough.)


These are my brothers...my father...and my mother.

(The clanking of a chain comes next and Maedhros lifts a pair of manacles. Heavy manacles. The sort to hold a strong Elf fast. He says nothing about them, but the fingers of his only remaining hand slide over the metal, remembering.

His last gift is nicer and he drops the manacles in favor of it. It is a crimson tunic with fine golden threading and black accents. It may or may not be the tunic he wears in the portrait.

Nicer, yes, but it causes a pang still.)


My mother made this for me. She wished for me to be a fine prince.

[ He sees, he hears, he remembers, and the sight of the manacles brings him running to his brother's door ]

Nelyo?

Let me get rid of it?

[ Maglor won't touch him, not when his memories must be so close to the surface ]

I can throw it out the airlock. You don't have to watch.

They would be happy to destroy it for you, I am sure.

[ He smiles a little ]

I did. I had forgotten... how happy we all looked.

Of course.

[ He smiles at the picture ]

We all were. How little we knew of what would await us!

[ Maglor offers a hand for the manacles ]

I think it probably would still - it might need a few adjustments, only.

Not that strange, I think. You are still you, Maedhros or Maitimo.

[ He waits patiently for his brother to do so - this fight he cannot help him with ]

{Maglor isn't the only one who comes knocking, only Fingon doesn't wait for the invitation to come in. He slowly approaches his cousin.}

Your mother was right, Maitimo. You are a fine prince. I have one request though.

{He remembers those manacles far too well.}

{Fingon grins faintly and slips his arms around his cousin's waist to look up at him.}

Give me the manacles? They have no place on this ship so I wish to get rid of them.

{Maedhros can hang onto the chains, but Fingon will hang onto him! He won't let go.}

Off this ship. I would make it difficult for them to ever be retrieved. Please?

{Fingon will never let go! He leans against his cousin, looking at him fondly.}

I won't let them harm anyone. But if you do not wish me to touch them, would you bring them with me to the airlock?

{A nod and Fingon pulls away, though one hand latches onto a sleeve as they leave. He spares the portrait a smile, turning it back to Maedhros.} They do. We'll come back in a little while, and they will still be here.

So am I, Maitimo. {Fingon shrugs.}

The stars will keep them from others for us.
