B2MeM Challenge: 2012 BINGO Bash: Economy: "Infrastructure" and Here we come a-caroling: "You might even say it glows" (Sorry, Caranthir); Scientific Achievement: "Print"; Dwarves of the First Age: "Curufin receives Angrist"
Also touches upon the 2009 prompt for March 17, concerning stereotypes.

Format: Drabble Series

Genre: General

Rating: Not sure the xenophobia in this one warrants a higher rating, but let's say Teens just in case

Warnings: Curufin being racist

Characters: Caranthir, Curufin

Pairings: n/a

Creators' Notes (optional): For different B2MeM '12 prompts, I started three separate stories in each of which Caranthir defended the achievements of the Dwarves against critical brothers. I never finished any of these stories and doubt that I ever will, so now I finally condensed them into a drabbles to make up a short series, with Curufin as the offending party each time. Sorry, Curufin.

The 'stereotypes' prompt is supposed to apply to the Dwarves, but meta-wise, I suppose my treatment of Caranthir also applies. ;)

Summary: Curufin is unimpressed with Caranthir's neighbours. Caranthir showcases some of their achievements to change his brother's mind.

But the other Ainur looked upon this habitation set within the vast spaces of the World, which the Elves call Arda, the Earth; and their hearts rejoiced in light, and their eyes beholding many colours were filled with gladness; but because of the roaring of the sea they felt a great unquiet. And they observed the winds and the air, and the matters of which Arda was made, of iron and stone and silver and gold and many substances: but of all these water they most greatly praised. And it is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance else that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen.
