These Gifts You Have Given Me by thearrogantemu

For the sake of prisoners, and the flight of birds by TheLionInMyBed
Fingon assailed Angband alone armed only with a harp, a bow and his own certainty that this was the right thing to do. More terrifying by far is the mire of politics and obligation that awaits him upon his return. His father wants a crown, his cousins want their brother back and Maedhros himself wants everyone to believe he’s fine (he’s really not). Fingon just wants everyone to be sensible for five minutes or, failing that, a problem that can be solved with courage and the edge of a blade.

(has a fingon/maedhros sequel, Delicate Pleasures)
