Another Man's Cage

Ch. 31: Chapter Thirty-One--Arafinwe

Beautifully done. I have often contemplated the paradox of the closing of a door in one's life and the opening of another. This chapter really seems to capture the bittersweetness and joy that comes with such an event. Perhaps my favorite thing is the balance of emotions that Arafinwe feels. This was just very well done. Thanks for the update!

Ch. 31: Chapter Thirty-One--Arafinwe

Finarfin was never compelling for me before I read yours and I find myself liking him so much—disarming and delightful.  Love his observations of his older brothers and nephews as well. One who has been following your development of the boys, in particular, can completely relate to his description of them ("Macalaurë is awkward, Tyelkormo is obnoxious, and Carnistir is mystifyingly mean") and yet see how he is subtly off. Maedhros, of course, he gets ("he has inherited the innate grace of our half-brother that makes no one doubt he is a prince"); but the reader knows that is more likely than not due to the ability of Maedhros to project the image of himself that he believes others want to see.
