Another Man's Cage

Ch. 29: Chapter Twenty-Nine--Feanaro

Love Feanor's point of view. Of course, he has an opinion on almost everything—even women's fashion! Your tiny details always entertain me—that fashion trends would originate first in Taniquetil, then spread to Tirion and finally reach the coast—very clever. Meanwhile he is oblivious to such obvious things. So he asks Nerdanel if she had not intended to eat; no, Feanor, actually these states of yours are deeply disturbing to those around you. While one could never describe him as emotionally distant, he does consistently expects those he loves to understand more about him than they possibly can if he isn't able to communicate more clearly. But his self-absorption stands in the way of him being able to grasp that. I did not guess what his project was although I knew it was too soon for the Simarils. You engage emotions on the small stuff so easily—I got so excited that he is still going to make sure that Tyelkormo still gets his birthday trip. Loved his comment that he could have been an Avari—yeah, I can see that part of him. Then you finish it off so nicely by having him add: "I would make their civilization the greatest on Arda." So very Feanor. The emotional content of the scene with Nelyo is layered with too much for me to even begin here.
