Oh, how typical, men never ask for directions until they are totally lost do they?

Lovely conclusion to a lovely series--especially ending it all on a high note with the reunion of Elrond with his parents. Thank you so much!

I can't not think that Maedhros permitted the sparing of Elrond and Elros because of the misdeeds of Celegorm's servants back at Doriath. A touching display that really helps humanize the remaining sons of Feanor.

Somehow Tilion's fly-by shout made me laugh. This drabble brought to mind the first testimonies of real space explorers--how much more wonderful the night sky is without an atmosphere obscuring it. Nice work integrating that concept into Middle-earth.

Again, I like your idea that these three elves would be the ones to not only recognize the new star as Earendil but also be able to spread such news among the people of Middle-earth. Smaller touches make the drabble really shine, though--mentions of sailing by the stars and the way the ship sails so smoothly with the Valar's blessing.

I like Melian's explanation here--that the Doom of the Noldor would force others as well to act in certain ways to fulfill their fate. It's good that she is still looking out for her children with her wisdom here.

Earendil's humble confusion here (especially liked that he thought the Silmaril would fix the trees!!) proves exactly why he is worthy to carry the jewel as a sign of hope.

The description of Yavanna's hair was a nice little gem in the drabble.

I really like the subtle way you convey Elwing's despair here, from the way she woke up to how desperately she tried to get rid of the jewel and hand it to her husband. No wonder Earendil decided there was nothing left but to go west!

I, at least, tend to forget that the actions of Dior, Elwing, et al. had consequences that went beyond their own lives and extended to those who might have wanted nothing to do with this jewel. Thanks for showing the other side of the story here.

I really like getting alternate takes on the same thing, especially an event so profound and ambiguous as Elwing's flight (pun unintended!). Here the idea that it all came down to a clasp's not opening pleases my plot-minded sensibilities. Thanks!
