What a cool story! Very beautiful and the imagery and the inspiration for it are lovely. Nicely done!

Hi Rhyselle, thought I'd repost my MEFA review here:

An excellent drabble about an artisan who breaks a glass pane into pieces in order to construct windchimes for those newly returned from Mandos. The glass is well described and the moment of breaking it a surprise. The addition of the lines from the poem added another dimension to the piece. I really liked the whole concept and would love to see more of this character.

Ah, but I so like the images contained within, Rhyselle! Perfect reaction for someone helping others to build new lives--painting the details of the old life that was shattered, and showing that even shattered there os beauty and music to be found in those old pieces!

It was not his brothers he saved by being there, but brothers nonetheless. Excellent might-have-been.

I haven't read the Palmer poem before this, but I've seen the same theme used about broken people and mosaics. A great metaphor for the Reborn -- and fish for the fisherman.

This is such a lovely drabble and the images it evokes are just beautiful. The poem is absolutely apropos and one that I think I will memorize for myself to remind myself that God is making a lovely windchime out of my life as well. Thank you for this, Rhyselle.

A most intriguing story!

Wow! How excellent! This is moving and amazing. i love the unraveling of the threads and the "remaking", if you will, into what Maglor was experienceing at the end of the tale. Cool story!

Wow. *imagining Middle-earth without Elrond and Elros*

And poor Maglor, who thought he'd changed history for one particular outcome, and only much later realized exactly *how* he'd made a difference.

It would be interesting to see him later in this canon, perhaps on his return to Valinor, when someone, wise elf or Ainu, puts thing in perspective.
