Slow nod.

"...I give my blessing to your marriage."

Permalink

"Thank you, Father." Her smile is genuine and her tone much warmer.

Permalink

"Thank you," Mygwainor says, sincerely. "I love your daughter, and I want only to have what time we may together."

Permalink

"I'm worried about her when that time ends, but - I have realized it isn't for me to try and control her happiness," he says, sounding tired. "But for now - we have a wedding party to plan, it seems."

Permalink

Mygwainor grins. "I look forward to it."

Permalink

Elvish wedding parties are rarely planned quickly, of course, but he can direct them toward the usual people who plan events at court for however large a celebration they want to be involved in.

Before they part, though - he wants to keep the Silmaril with him, and he's at best lukewarm on the idea of letting it leave Doriath, worse than lukewarm on the idea of returning it to the Feanorians.

Permalink

(...Not surprising. It always goes like this.)

(Not very good, though.)

(Mygwainor should really try to end the loops before this inevitably gets everyone killed.)

Permalink

That was never part of the Quest. Nor is it a wise idea; the Feanorians are already or will shortly be aware that they were successful in retrieving it.

Permalink

Doriath will stand strong against them, and he won't deal with Kinslayers.

Permalink

There is no dealing required. A Silmaril was requested, a Silmaril was brought. She has returned, safe and whole and happy.

Let that be enough.

Permalink

It is, for him, but he will not see the Kinslayers get their way so easily. 

Permalink

Even to the point of compounding their sin, at the cost of his own people?

Permalink

It will not cost his people, nor compound their sin. 

Permalink

She hopes he remembers those words.

Permalink

He does not often forget. 

Permalink

...She and Luthien have had a long journey. They should go rest. 

Permalink

Yeah.

They'll see about starting the planning process in the morning.

Permalink

She gets them detangled from the argument with Thingol and gets Luthien to their rooms, embracing her.

Permalink

Hug.

"I tried, I suppose."

Permalink

Squeeze. "You did."

Permalink

"Let's have the wedding as soon as possible."

Permalink

Kiss. "Let's."

"I don't think anyone would object if we married before the parties; I understand that's normal at least among the Noldor... Especially with anyone highly placed socially."

Permalink

"Father would frown. ...But I suppose he doesn't strictly need to know."

Permalink

"I've heard some people can see whether you're married in another's eyes." Nuzzle. "But as long as we don't draw attention to it..." Kiss. "But we can wait, too."
