- Maglor, to his brothers, the Silmarillion
Fingon and Maedhros.
Found on a Live Journal, but the artist was not named.Sorry, not sorry.
As the longtime admin of the Library of Moria, and a former very active Silmarillion fanfiction writer myself. I can tell you that this is a drawing by Mathia. But I also know that Mathia took down his/her (never quite figured out the persons gender perception) Tolkien art, and severed all links to any persons in that fandom. So you can’t find it on his/her DA or website, it’s all gone. So I actually see no point in linking to the artist anymore. You can go look him/her up yourself.
I swear man, that was like the HUGEST wank EVER in the LoTr commuinity when Orchyd-whatsherface and Mathia fell out. Mathia did art for like two authors exclusivly, but it’s been so long that I honestly don’t remember that other chicks name (it was something with a K, and who cares?). There was apparently cybersex and online love triangles and a little bit catfishing going on there. Can’t tell, I never was inner circle with those people (I wasn’t hip enough for the cool kids, cause I didn’t know Quenyan or some shit). Anywho it was a clusterfuck, I am sure it’s still somewhere on fandomwank if you’re really interested.
Shame about Mathia’s Silm & LoTr art though, it is gorgeous. I think I have some stored away on my computer and I know that Darkdreamer has some too.
I wrote this fanfic once where I gave him a prosthesis. Useless knowledge I know, but it made me happy to see someone else shared my vision. =) Awesome damn art! I absolutely love it! <3 <3 - And just for good measure I will say that this art and my story are in no way related, I wish they were, but no.
(if you want the fic, it’s here, last post on the site, and the following chapters are on the next page. It’s called Winterborn.)
ALSO FEEL FREE TO DELETE THIS TEXT OF MINE WHEN YOU REBLOG, I’M FINE WITH YOU WANTING TO REBLOG THE IMAGE NOT MY STORY LINK. =) (just don’t remove the artist link!!)

15 - Your favorite male character.
I wouldn’t go so far as to call him the main character of The Silmarillion, but close.. lets call him pretty important. I don’t even know what to say without writing a goddamn essay on this character. To me he comes off like such a sad character, he is trying so hard to do what he believes is right, and he fails again and again. He is a tormented character, angry and hateful, but on the same time is not mad like his father. The power that corrupted others just broke him instead till he gives up being the high king and hands the crown over to his uncle, seeing himself as a huge failure just as most elves does. And then sets off on his own quest with his remaining brothers. I believe he does go mad in the end, but unlike his father who set out to take on the world, Maedhros wants to undo what has been done, and undo himself to rid him of regret. Maybe the keyword for him is regret? I don’t know but it seems to me that his entire existence is to be the eldest son of Fëanor, never himself.
And yes I admit to actually crying the first time I read the Silmarillion.

“At last, in the year when Earendil was seven years old, Morgoth was ready, and he loosed upon Gondolin his Balrogs, and his Orcs, and his wolves; and with them came dragons of the brood of Glaurung, and they were become now many and terrible. The host of Morgoth came over the northern hills where the height was greatest and the watch least vigilant, and it came at night upon a time of festival, when all the people of Gondolin were upon the walls to await the rising sun, and sing their songs at its uplifting; for the morrow was the great feast that they named the Gates of Summer. But the red light mounted the hills in the north and not in the east; and there was no stay in the advance of the foe until they were beneath the very walls of Gondolin, and the city was beleaguered without hope.” - The Silmarillion

Okay this has been on Ao3 since we wrote it, but I was re-reading it cause I wanted to catch up so we could finish the sequel. And I have laughed so hard that I cried and my stomach hurt.
Seriously my teenager just yelled from her room ‘Are you laughing at your own jokes, dude that is so lame I have no words’. And truth be told, I was - Laughing at my own jokes.
It’s an Explicit Maedhros/Haldir Maedhros/Erestor Haldir/Elladan, crack fick, it’s set in an AU future where zombies almost destroyed all life on middle earth. The Valar make Maedhros a deal he can’t say no to.

“Fingon watched at storming waves madly in hope that one of white ships will come up from the storm and return – but the empty freezing sea roared before him. And then Fingon groaned in powerless rage and despair, like a wounded animal and sticking his white fingers into stone he fell on his knees, clenching teeth and tears swept from his open eyes. The huge wave rolled on pier, breaking and lifting an ice crest to the sky, falling down like a waterfall. Fingon wasn’t weak, his heart never knew fear before the enemies, many of elves called him The Brave, but now his throat wrung with weakness. Maedros… my faithful friend… has betrayed me.”
