Of Thingol and Melian 

Melian sat long in silence beside Thingol the King, and her thought
passed back into the starlit years and to their first meeting among the
nightingales of Nan Elmoth in ages past.

Anairë,

I sleep so you will be alive,
It is that simple.
The dreams themselves are nothing.
They are the sickness you control,
nothing more

The Hunter, Lord of Forests

‘and Orome blew great blasts upon his horn as though he would awake the grey
rocks to life and lustihead. Behold, at these blasts the great forest reared and
moaned about the hills, and all the trees of dark leaf came to being, and the
world was shaggywith a growth of pines and odorous with resinous trees, and
firs and cedars hung their blue and olive draperies about the slopes, and yews
began the centuries of their growth.’

Harad, fully named Haradwaith, was the immense realm located south of Gondor and Mordor. The Men of Harad were called Southrons or Haradrim. Harad lay between the sea of Umbar to its west and Khand to its northeast, and was divided into two main provinces: Near Harad, which was the closest to both Mordor and Gondor, and Far Harad, nearest to the land of Umbar.

However the Stewards of Gondor still kept scouts in Ithilien (or Moon-land
in Sindarin), based at secret locations such as Henneth Annûn (the name means Window of the Sunset), which were built shortly after 2901. In 2954 Mount Doom burst into flame and those few farmers who remained fled Westward over the Anduin, leaving only the Rangers behind to harry the servants of Sauron.

Maglor

Between the arms of Gelion was the ward of Maglor, and here in one place
the hills failed altogether: there it was that the Orcs came into East
Beleriand before the Third Battle. Therefore the Noldor held strength of
cavalry In the plains at that place; and the people of Caranthir fortified the
mountains to the east of Maglor’s Gap.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | The First House of The Noldor | Maedhros

But Maedhros restrained his brothers, and they departed from the council, and soon afterwards they left Mithrim and went eastward beyond Aros to the wide lands about the Hill of Himring. That region was named thereafter the March of Maedhros; for northwards there was little defence of hill or river against assault from Angband. There Maedhros and his brothers kept watch, gathering all such people as would come to them, and they had few dealings with their kinsfolk westward, save at need. It is said indeed that Maedhros himself devised this plan, to lessen the chances of strife, and because he was very willing that the chief peril of assault should fall upon himself.
