Decoration: Glitter, Golden - A Golden Gift, by Himring

Title: A Golden Gift
Author: Himring
Characters/Pairing: Fingon/Maedhros (after re-embodiment in Valinor) & original female elf character
Rating: G
Warnings: fluff (no sexual content)
Book/Source: Silmarillion
Disclaimer: Fingon and Maedhros are Tolkien's; the OFC is from a previous fic of mine.

‘My lords! My lords!’

They turn as one, Fingon edging slightly in front of Maedhros. Since Maedhros returned, the two princes have been the object of many covert glances and some unabashed staring, but few have dared to accost them in the street.

Fingon recognizes the young coppersmith who was once so pleased when he compared her handiwork to his cousin Curufin's and has since established herself as one of the leading jewelers of Tirion. He accepts the proffered box and opens it. A subtle glitter--not one hair clasp, this time, but two: one copper and one of gold.

A/N: This is a small fix-it for an episode in my story "The House that Fingon Built". In that story, Fingon explains to the coppersmith that he admires her work but cannot buy it (because he would want it as a gift for Maedhros and he has no idea when Maedhros might be able to return from the Halls). Fingon canonically wears gold in his hair; that is why the hair clasp that is intended for him is golden. Maedhros canonically wears copper.
