Detour

(Slightly adapted copy of my comment over at SWG)

This story confirms my prejudice that everything is better with Fingon. Well, most things. (Sighs dreamily together with Miss Chapped Lips.)

I would like to believe that Maedhros has been a better teacher than he thinks, although I'm sure he could be better still, with a bit of boost from a cousin and a bit of hope. Personally, I can't believe he was boring about Quendian grammar in the past either, but then I'm a nerd and think Quendian grammar sounds like a fascinating subject.

Also, it seems time that one of the returnees was a bit more enthusiastic about Finarfin's reforms, even if they are less than perfect (as the description of the lower circles also suggests).

I liked Anaire forgetting to remove the price tag, showing she was flustered at the return of her son and less self-possessed than she appears--but still thoughtful enough to think of cushioning him against hurt.

What I forgot to mention before: I really liked the description of  that short moment in Himring and that that moment, above all, was one to go back to, in despite of all that followed...
