Challenge: Woodwork - Drill
Characters/Pairing: OMC, Maglor
Book/Source: The Silmarillion
A/N: Oderen's wife now studies music with Maglor, but he hasn't met the son of Feanor face-to-face--until now
Disclaimer: Not Tolkien, not PJ--not for profit.
This wasn’t how he expected to meet Maglor. He has a connection, he supposes—he wonders whether it will serve him.
‘The Sinda refuses the task…’
‘I’ve paid my dues, all I owe you,’ Oderen argues. ‘I’ve got a commission, urgent, due in three days’ time. And I’m a woodcarver, not a wainwright!’
‘He’s from Brithombar, Turion,’ Maglor says, calmly. ‘But here in the Marches, Oderen, we all do what is required. And those waggons—we need them. Now!’
Grudgingly, he drills axle holes. He’s fully compensated but doesn’t entirely understand—until the day the order comes.
