The Silmarillion aesthetic |
Finrod
and
Amarië

According to the Quenta Silmarillion, Amarië did not follow Finrod into exile. The Grey Annals add to this that she wasn’t permitted to follow
him. In the Shibboleth of Fëanor we read that ‘Finrod left his wife in Valinor and had no children
in exile’. No name is given here, but it seems likely that this refers
to to Amarië. 
After his death
Finrod went to the Halls of Mandos, ‘but it is said that released soon
from Mandos, he went to Valinor and there dwells with Amarië (Grey
Annals).

Ar-Pharazôn


But Pharazon came to her, and she was glad, and forsook the
allegiance of her father for the time, being enamoured of Pharazon.
And in this they broke the laws of Numenor that forbade marriage
even in the royal house between those more nearly akin than cousins
in the second degree. But they were too powerful for any to gainsay
them.

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.

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 Silmarillion aesthetic | Oromë,
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.’
