yidanyuan:

“Thus he came alone to Angband’s gates, and he sounded his horn, and smote once more upon the brazen doors, and challenged Morgoth to come forth to single combat. And Morgoth came.

“Fingolfin gleamed beneath it as a star; for his mail was overlaid with silver, and his blue shield was set with crystals; and he drew his sword Ringil, that glittered like ice.”

…GOD I LOVE HIM SOOOO MUCH.

THE GREATEST KING! The true High King of the Noldor ever.

Stunning art, real Nolofinwe!

Eönwë | The mightiest of the Maiar, the Herald of Manwë,

But at the last the might of Valinor came up out of the West, and the challenge of the trumpets of Eönwë filled the sky; and Beleriand was ablaze with the glory of their arms, for the host of the Valar were arrayed in forms young and fair and terrible, and the mountains rang beneath their feet.

The Silmarillion aesthetic | Celegorm The Fair


‘The name Celegorm, hasty riser, may have been a reference to his quick
temper and his habit of leaping up when suddenly angered.’

He was the
only son of Feanor to be fair-haired, hence his epesse.

(The Peoples of
Middle-Earth, HoMe 12, The Shibboleth of Feanor)

“..the Easterlings were afraid, and dared not to lay hands upon her or her household… yet she was now poor and without aid, save that she was succoured secretly by a kinswoman of Húrin named Aerin…
