    Doesn’t Thranduil have like a huge train on his robes? Can you imagine falling asleep on it? Like he doesn’t notice until he steps up some stairs and hears a slight groan as you just roll off of them.

    Side note I immediately thought of like, an actual train pattern and was so confused — and then realised what you meant LMAO

    BUT ! Yes, I feel like he wouldn't even notice and keep on walking while all the palace staff are watching you sleep soundly and pulled by a slay but then oof! Stairs! And now you're whining and Thranduil's confused because how long have you been there??

    Scoops you up into his arms <3

    “For I am Saruman the Wise, Saruman Ring-maker, Saruman of Many Colours!' I looked then and saw that his robes, which had seemed white, were not so, but were woven of all colours, and if he moved they shimmered and changed hue so that the eye was bewildered.”

    Lee Week continues! Saruman of Many Colors 🌈 Been meaning to draw this one for a while

    Public apology to the number of people who follow me and did NOT know about Tolkien’s weird “choose to pass on” method of dying for men of Numenor and half elves and all sufficiently noble men, and learned about it as part of my explanation for why I think the Peredhil are not changed physically in any way by their choice to be men or elves.

    I am most especially sorry if you thought I came up with that very, very confusing philosophically fraught concept, when no, sad to inform you that’s all Jolkien Rolkien Tolkien’s idea.

    I’m sorry I forced you to know this knowledge I thought we’d all already been cursed with.

    Jimmy: "She was poetry, but he couldn't read..."

    Clyde: "His name was Jared, he's 19."

    Tolkien: "When his parents built a very strange machine-"

    Tweek: "Watch that scene, dig it, the dancing queen!"

    Butters: "AYYYY, MACARENA!"

    Craig: "Horrible job, everyone."

    I just think it would be neat if Gildor Inglorion of the house of Finrod was named for Gildor of the house of Bëor, one of Barahir and Beren's dead companions

    #also mortals being named for elves - standard #elves being named for mortals - intriguing #ofc very likely just a generic reused name but lets read into it. maybe theres a whole group of elves named for berens companions #and having/claiming relation to finrod #tolkien#silmarillion#gildor#skravler

    Drawing these two again after what feels like forever! The concept here is that Finrod is in denial about Bëor dying (and it’d be an even bigger punch to the gut since Bëor is the first mortal friend that Finrod will see die) T_T

    #i used what i learned from my farseer fanart for the lighting hehehh #also one of my old eldritch comic drafts was about this concept too #i just really like this concept loll ^^;; #art#my art#tolkien#silmarillion#fanart#elves#eldar#noldor#edain #house of beor #house of finarfin #finrod#findarato#beor#balan#platonic love#friendship#family #honestly tho i'm kinda on the fence on whether i ship them or not #cuz i'm more of a canon person and finrod's already with amarie right #and i tend to lean more into friendships and familial love #plus atm i'm really into the idea that beor takes on a paternal vibe with finrod #especially as he grows older and looks more like a granddad loll #beor: no son don't eat that moss i'm warning ya

    the ancestry of Elrond and Elros is so preposterously fragile

    there are so many times where their ancestors almost didn’t survive, or were barely in the right place at the right time to marry and make a child together! i’ve posted more about that here — no need to go again through the laundry list of near misses and coincidences that goes into producing these two men

    but the thing is - this string of improbable events feels a LOT like what happens when you have a time traveler nudging things to happen in just the right way at the right time to produce this specific outcome

    so obviously the questions become (1) what horrible future awaits in a world without elrond’s guidance and elros’ descendants? (2) how do people figure out it’s these two who need to be saved for a better future? and (3) who travels back in time to fix this apocalypse-spawning event, and what do they do once they get there?

    I think something seriously missing from Peter Jackson’s portrayal of the elves, something that Tolkien stresses almost every time he introduces an elf, is how joyful they are.

    The elves of Rivendell, Mirkwood, etc are all portrayed as extremely jolly people. In the Hobbit book, when we are first introduced to the elves, they’re singing in the trees and teasing Thorin and co. Even when we’re introduced to the Mirkwood elves, who live in a much more dangerous environment, they’re feasting and singing to the barrels as they float down the river. Even after fighting in a war, their spirits aren’t dampened.

    Tolkien stresses the joy of elves so much that it is used as a fucking narrative device to show when a situation is really really bad if even an elf is upset about it.

    Elves are also meant to be a comforting presence to the reader, they are a kind and friendly folk and we know that the characters aren’t in danger around them.

    Peter Jackson just kinda….misses all of that??? The films portray the elves as stoic and mysterious. All of the elves that he portrays rarely speak, let alone smile and it takes away from such a vital cultural aspect to the elves that they are an extremely warm and happy folk and it is their happiness that lifts the spirits of others and inspires them to carry on despite all the hardships.

    Now is the time for our esteemed Mr. Baggins, who has proved himself a good companion on our long road, and a hobbit full of courage and resource far exceeding his size, and if I may say so possessed of good luck far exceeding the usual allowance—now is the time for him to perform the service for which he was included in our Company; now is the time for him to earn his Reward.

    The maiar was made to serve the valar tho, I can see some people takes it to extreme but like still Tolkien made it clear the maiar was made to serve the valar even through some of them left to serve themself

    I understand that. What I’m saying is that that is fucked up.

    Chapter One! Check it out!

    Hey! This is the first chapter of the story I've been working on. As with most things, the first chapter/episode/scene is the weakest. Let me know what you think! Reblog!

    @iithildim​ inquired  :  ‘ i want to learn from you. ’  /  meme.

              AN UNUSUAL QUESTION. One that halted the woman in midst of training, paused in mid-swing. Hedona often was silent in her approach, even if Serene detected her faint steps in near silent halls. Blade lowered, gaze shifted upon the other as she pondered in thought. Instincts demanded no teachings with blade be taught, it was her job as unofficial mother to protect Hedona, but the rational thoughts informed her of how important self defence was. Though, Logon would probably complain about Serene teaching his daughter how to use a blade.

              ❛  Lesson one.  ❜  VOICE COMMANDING CLEAR. One often told that reminded others of her long lost mother ━  a powerhouse of a woman. Blade returned upwards, flipped so blade rested in her hands &&. handle directed to Hedona. Serene would deal with Logon later if he protests, for now a lesson was underway. ❛  Never draw a blade unless it is to defend yourself or another. You’re to be a protector, a shield for yourself and others, but never to be the one to fight for the sake of it.  ❜
