General Comment

I have just read your Maedhros saga, and all I can say  It takes the breath away.  You did a wonderful job showing his development through life, and the time in Mandos was healing indeed.  You did not shy away from his faults, but showed what wisdom and strength he had, however warped it became in the end.  And that descent into darkness was well drawn, poisoning (in the end) even his lifelong friendship with Maglor.  The idea of these brothers being reunited on the last day of the world was just brilliant.  I remember seeing Jenny Dolfen's illustration of "The Heir of Fëanor" long ago, and being intrigued by it - I am glad I finally got to read it!  I hope you will not be insulted if I say I intend to steal as many of your ideas as I can :).
