The Problem with Cousins

kazaera:

Notes: For the “textual ghosts” prompt (yeah, I’m late) - Orodreth’s wife and Finduilas’ mother.

Summary: Cellil of Doriath, apprentice stonemason, attends a formal occasion in the early days of Nargothrond. She’d like to hide in a corner with her mentor and talk about their work, but finds that plan thoroughly stymied by her strange new cousins from across the Sea.

Very interesting story set in Nargothrond. Love the layers of guardedness/deception. Lots of great characters and description. Fascinating glimpses of relationships between different peoples in Beleriand, with hints of beyond.

*HAPPY BIRTHDAY* Sean Bean 4/17/1959

"Another story — and this really is an index of the real man… I met him in LAX (Los Angeles airport), he’d come direct from New Zealand. We were both going to London. He was carrying what seemed like 20 bags and he’s got this old man and old lady there. I asked Sean if I could give him a hand. After waiting a few minutes, I asked whether he was going to introduce me to his friends. ‘Is this your Mum and Dad?’ He said he’d love to introduce me to them but he didn’t know their names. The rather dazed old couple introduce themselves…they were just an old couple who had been on the plane and had been struggling with their luggage, he’d decided to help them out. They had no idea who he was. We get to Heathrow and I’m running for a connection and out of the corner of my eye, I can see Sean very patiently taking their bags off, stacking them and steering them through customs. I don’t believe, to this day, they had any idea who he was. The man is pure gold. I love him to death. He’s just a thoroughly good man and a marvelous actor."
