Maglor: *goes to find her favourite brother*
Maedhros: *opens the door for her*
Maedhros: And what are those?
Maglor: One. *holds up a finger* Do you have a key to Curu's place I could borrow?
Maedhros: I do, but what do you need a key to Curu's for?
Maglor: I wanted to leave something there for him. ...and maybe clean it up a little bit in case... *shakes her head* For WHEN he returns from death.
Maedhros: Ahh....Well, okay...
Maglor: Thank you. I just, I guess I miss him.
Maedhros: *nods understandingly*
Maglor: Don't tell him it was me, though, when he's back. Let him think it was nana or something.
Maedhros: *chuckles* Oh, he's probably spying on you from the Halls anyway.
Maglor: I didn't even think of that. *shakes her fist at the air* I will kick your ass, Curu, if you're looking in my bedroom at all.
Maedhros: *laughs* I doubt that much.
Maglor: If anyone, that'd be Cara. *rolls her eyes* I miss him, too. Odd as he is.
Maglor: *small smile, takes one of Mae's hands* Ready for my second favour?
Maedhros: I think so.
Maglor: I'd like your opinion on something.
Maglor: Lio and I have been discussing the possibility of marriage again. *slight blush* Is it selfish of me to want to marry him only in my natural body?
Maedhros: *thinks carefully* Well...I'm not sure that it's -selfish- per se....But marriage shouldn't be contingent on your physical form. It has to be about the person's personality - that has to be what you love.
Maedhros: Plus, I think you are putting too much stock on being a woman.
Maglor: I just... I want it to be -me- he's marrying. This can't be false. I still don't feel completely right in this body. *frowns, not sure she's explaining herself*
Maedhros: That's because you probably have a subconscious persisting belief that men are stronger than women. Or at least a fear it is so.
Maglor: ...Maybe. But, sometimes, I feel I just don't know who I am. Not anymore.
Maedhros: Being a woman isn't anything LESS than being a man, Kana. You have a daughter. I think you should try...to stop fighting against being a woman.
Maglor: I don't know if I can.
Maedhros: You should try...sister. *meaningful look*
Maglor: *opens her mouth to argue, pauses, looks upset*
Maedhros: *looks at her* Why does it bother you so?
Maglor: I'm a man. In here, I'm still a man. *taps over her heart and her temple*
Maedhros: What does that MEAN, Kana? What are you trying to tell yourself? That you're still smart? Still talented? Those things aren't related to being a man.
Maglor: *silent for a while* ...I'm me. Not this monstrous madwoman everyone sees.
Maedhros: *agrees* You are you. You should stop showing everyone the madwoman side and using your not-so-new acquisition of breasts and a cunt as your excuse. I know this. And I think Ecthelion does too.
Maglor: *little nod*
Maedhros: Marry him because you love him. Remember, there are a lot of stupid men out there.
Maglor: I've probably slept with half of them, already. *sighs and leans against Mae* I've made a lot of messes, Russa, when I let myself be the madwoman. I'm afraid they'll come back and hurt you, hurt him... hurt my princess.
Maedhros: Yes. But you can protect yourself, and so can I. So can Ecthelion. And the both of you can protect Lit. *hugs*
Maglor: She should be able to protect herself, too. *clings a little* Is it too early to get her started on learning?
Maedhros: And she will, eventually. *rubs her arm* It's probably a bit early now.
Maglor: *nods* I'll keep her with music for now, then, and reading.
Maedhros: She'll be fine. You all will.
Maglor: Yeah. You're usually right. *kisses his cheek*
Maedhros: *kisses hers* No, always.
Maglor: *smiles* And you'll be my... uh... maid of honour? Once I decide how to ask Lio to marry me.
Maedhros: *laughs* I will gladly be your maid of honor.
Maglor: I'm only wearing a dress if you are.
Maedhros: Ah, but dresses would be MUCH more flattering on you! Don't you want me to look nice in case there are any eligible singles attending?
Maglor: You're the one going on about the inside being more important. Besides, with this face *strokes his cheek* you could wear a burlap sack and still be attractive.
Maedhros: *grins* I did say that, but I never said a person shouldn't wear clothing that best flatters his or her figure!
Maglor: -I- look dead sexy in anything. Lio would agree.
Maedhros: *chuckles* I'm sure.
Maglor: I suppose you do have that little bit of weight to worry about... but I think you wear it well. If we weren't siblings, Lio might have something to worry about.
Maedhros: *snorts* Yes, yes...
Maglor: I should go before you get ideas. *teasing* Can I steal that key now? I'll visit you again tomorrow to return it and you can admire me some more then.
Maedhros: *chuckles* Here. *gets her the key*
Maglor: Thanks. Really. *taking it and kisses his cheek once more* I love you, know that.
Maedhros: I love you too. *grins* Now get out of here.
Maglor: Gone! *raises a hand as she takes off*
