"Just see how it glints and sparkles. Of course it is a nucleus and focus of crime. Every good stone is. They are the devil's pet baits.

Sequel to With Both Hands Thou Shalt Give It
. After Melkor murdered Finwë and stole the Silmarils, fleeing to the lands across the sea, Fëanor, the Silmarils’ maker, led an army in hot pursuit to avenge his father and reclaim his treasure, swearing an oath that would doom them all. And the Fëanorians were followed by the eccentric, brilliant, and fearlessly kinky Maia detective called Sérelókë, who can always be trusted to stick his nose (and other parts) into the meat of any fascinating and dangerous crime. In Beleriand, he will find a rich playground for all his passions, and meet a companion who will change his life forever.Chapter 1:Aftermath Prologue - The Tale of the Journey to the EastIn a time and place of safety after the Battle Under the Stars (and the main events of this story) Sérelókë tells the tale of how he came to cross the sea to Beleriand. He will take his sweet time - he has a captive audience.Chapter 2: Elen Sila Lumenn OmentielvoA star shines on the hour of their meeting.Chapter 3: I Am More Sweet Than Other MeatThere's only one way to deal with creatures like the residents of the Valley of Dreadful Death - insult them!Chapter 4: The Battlefield Under the StarsIaun would not choose to be bystander to a great battle - but Fëanor's fall is terrifying. And Iaun's new friend Sérelókë is more terrifying still.Chapter 5: Where There's a Whip, There's a WaySérelókë confronts Gothmog, Lord of Balrogs, before the very gates of Angband. And Iaun discovers something about his new companion - and something about himself as well. (Specifically, a raging voyeurism kink.)Chapter 6: Study in Flesh and SpiritWary and slow to trust he may be, but Iaun finds himself quick and reckless in desire - which is not at all the same thing. (An Elf is not
quite so dangerous to seduce as a Balrog, but there is patience and artistry required in doing it properly.)Chapter 7: Come Through Woe to BlissIaun likes a
lot of woe with his bliss, and even Sérelókë finds him quite a handful. Handfuls, even.
(this is the chapter that's just 8100 words of Sérelókë/Iaun BDSM - as only they can do it. Or would want to.)Chapter 8: The Last Flower of SilverSérelókë and Iaun deepen their relationship, and see each other in a whole new light. A very literal new light.Chapter 9: The City of the Thousand CavesA respite and refuge, from everything but politics. Sérelókë and Iaun are guests of the real powers in Doriath.Epilogue: The Horn of the HunterA sort of honeymoon.
Completed a while ago, but I drifted away from LJ/DW again. Apologies!
I've already started brainstorming some truly terrible ideas for the next tale in this series (which needs a series title!) May be a while, but I promise it shall continue.
