However, I find that his son should be killed instead of him...I mean I hate him because...who would caused the death of his own father?!?!?!?!?
Maeglin's reasons for wanting to go to Gondolin were because he did not want to spend his whole life cloistered in an isolated wood. He had heard tales from his mother about the wondrous city, and he wished to see it with his own eyes. His had no intention of causing his father's death, only to escape from the prison he was being kept in.
Since it was Eol's decision to follow them there, he cannot really be blamed for Eol's death. His father had tried to kill him after all. And for that matter, what other elf ever used poison on his darts?
hey val never told me you were writing a book....so are we going to read it????...
Not exactly a book, Thingol. It'll just be a short story like the other ones. Once it's finished I'll send it to the Writer's Panel to see if its good enough to be added to the Fan Writing section, and if so you'll be able to find it there a short time later. If its not good enough to be included, I'll email it to anyone who wants a copy.
