This thing, which is technically a response to the SWG's "Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song" challenge (using the Smashing Pumpkins' song "Thirty-Three" that was in fact an Important Song to the nascent love story of Dawn and Bobby Felagund), got out of control because it was also inspired in myriad ways by the Mereth Aderthad, most obviously [personal profile] grundyscribbling's idea of the Feanorian Family Vacation and [personal profile] hrymfaxe's request for fail!sex. It ended up *gulp* 15,000 words, which probably means that just my hardcore readers will bother with it, but at least it was fun (if long!) to write. Here is the Official SummaryTM from the SWG archive:

Against Maedhros's wishes, Fingon is off to a summer retreat in the mountains, a retreat designed by the Valar for newly reembodied Elves. Amid games of kickball and group therapy, Fingon makes a friend, discovers the Noldor haven't actually invented everything, and begins to grasp the complexities of his post-reembodiment relationship with Maedhros. Maedhros/Fingon, set in my Republic of Tirion verse.

I am just posting it to the SWG for now: Swans. I will likely cross-post it later this weekend; preparing a 15K-word story for posting is tedious and I'm ready to be done with it for tonight!

I also finally created a series for these Fifth-Age stories I've been writing lately--Republic of Tirion--so they're all in one place and in order.

It's torture to know it is there and I cannot read it yet. I am straining like a plow-horse, when I need to be a race horse to make to the finish. I resent that you already finished with some 5,000 words more than my probably total.

I have every intention of posting tonight, but I am still writing. IgnobleBard is proofing for typos. And it does take a long time to post an entry with a lot of fancy formatting.

Now I have to stop and clean up the house, because I promised I straighten up, because Laura is due back with Caroline. Caroline is type to look around and think we are dysfunctional if it isn't semi-straightened up. She has bad OCD.

I have read about half of the story now, but I need to get back to working on my diss for now, so there will be more feedback sometime next week, but...

I already love your Findekáno voice (and the general idea of the Republic of Tirion). Oh, and your gentle hinting at the First Age of course. I am more than sure that I'll enjoy the rest :) *claps*

got out of control

*grins* I just love how the muses take away your carefully planned story and make a run with it.

Congratulations on posting on time! :)
It was a fun read! (I will take as much of the Republic of Tirion as you care to write.)
