Each of them took to himself a Silmaril, for they said: ‘Since one is lost to us, and but two remain, and we two alone of our brothers, so is it plain that fate would have us share the heirlooms of our father.’

Yet Maglor still held back, saying: ‘If Manwë and Varda themselves deny the fulfilment of an oath to which we named them in witness, is it not made void?’

And Maedhros answered: ‘But how shall our voices reach to Ilúvatar beyond the Circles of the World? And by Ilúvatar we swore in our madness, and called the Everlasting Darkness upon us, if we kept not our word. Who shall release us?’

‘If none can release us,’ said Maglor, ‘then indeed the Everlasting Darkness shall be our lot, whether we keep our oath or break it; but less evil shall we do in the breaking.’

There is mistletoe above their heads. Well, these foolish things mean nothing. It must be a twins’ trick, just an innocent joke. Young noldoran laughs shyly, and so his fire-haired cousin does. The evening dusk is cosy in the fireplace hall, dinner almost ended.

Of course it’s foolish. They need no mistletoe to kiss each other after the feast.

Caranthir The Dark

Now the people of Caranthir dwelt furthest east beyond the upper waters
of Gelion, about Lake Helevorn under Mount Rerir; and they
climbed the heights of Ered Luin and looked eastward in wonder, for wild and
wide it seemed to them were the lands of Middle-earth.

And thus it was that Caranthir’s people came upon the Dwarves,

but

no great love was there between them; for the Dwarves were secret and
quick to resentment, and Caranthir was haughty and scarce concealed his scorn
for the unloveliness of the Naugrim, and his people followed their lord.

No other player has there been,
no other lips or fingers seen
so skilled, ‘tis said in elven-lore,
save Maglor son of Fëanor,
forgotten harper, singer doomed,
who young when Laurelin yet bloomed
to endless lamentation passed
and in the tombless sea was cast.

Maglor’s Gap was the open area between the hills surrounding Himring and an extension of the Ered Luinjust north of Mount Rerir. It was the widest break in the northern mountain-fences of Beleriand.

Maglor was the second of the Sons of Fëanor. He had more of his mother Nerdanel’s gentle spirit than any of his brothers. Maglor was known for his poetry and singing, but in Tirion he swore the Oath of Fëanor and shared in the woes it bred.

proud Celegorm with gleaming hair

upon his stern unyielding face..
