Ah, the gentle art of Fëanorian diplomacy.
Tolkien: any way you slice it.
'But Fëanor laughed, and spoke not to the herald, but to the Noldor, saying: “So! Then will this valiant people send forth the heir of their King alone into banishment with his sons only, and return to their bondage? But if any will come with me, I say to them: Is sorrow foreboded to you? But in Aman we have seen it. In Aman we have come through bliss to woe. The other we will try: through sorrow to find joy; or freedom, at the least.”' - Of the Flight of the Noldor, The Silmarillion.
