Fëanor asks it of all of them. Each new soul to walk within the Halls of Mandos is sought out and given his questions. He is brilliant and he is driven, and not knowing is a thing he cannot bear.

Even those who've had no cause to wish him well answer when they see the look in his eyes, the need to know the answer to his questions.

"Where is Macalaurë, also called Maglor? How fares my son?"

Always, they do not know. And always, always, they look to Maedhros as they ask, "Did he not come here with you?"
100-word drabble. Because Maglor's fate is hardest of all for those who wait for news that never seems to come. :(

One rarely thinks of Feanor as a very caring father, considering what he drug his sons into. But I love the emotion conveyed in this scene, and the desperation to know what has happened to his last son.

Aw, thanks. I've always considered Feanor to have a loving side to him - he did love his father "more than the light of Aman or the peerless work of his hands", after all. :)

Beautiful. You convey so many emotions, motives and even history within these 100 words. A new and interesting view of Feanor.
