i want a fic where the fëanorians leave aman and stay on middle earth throughout the centuries, but the fic starts in modern day england. maedhros is a diplomat, maglor is a popular musician, celegorm is an explorer (probably on nat geo), caranthir is exceptional at art just like his mother, curufin is an engineer like his dad, while the twins have a pranks youtube channel. they're all famous for being ridiculously attractive and talented, yet problematic because their genius inventor father keeps trash talking the royal family so as to take the throne.

Maedhros having nightmares would include:
Being with Maedhros in Beleriand means having to deal with his regular nightmares, there’s no way around it.
Although for the most part, Maedhros disturbs you as little as possible. For him, nightmares come with a sense of horror and shame he’d rather not pass on
He isn’t the type to scream his head off (Like Bella in New Moon) but will instead sweat excessively, twitch and make small distressed sounds
How often this wakes you up will depend on how heavy a sleeper you are. If you don’t wake, he’ll do everything he can to keep it that way
Since nightmares are an admission of weakness for him, he hates being crowded and pressured to talk about what he saw
Instead, he just wants to sit with you quietly, maybe over some tea while he lets the tension and adrenaline leave his system
Sometimes he’ll wake up and still believe he’s in angband. At times like this he’s liable to lash out, so that’s something you’ll have to be cautious of and work around
As the first age wears on, his nightmares actually get a lot more frequent, no longer just about his captivity but about various battles and kinslayings too
Towards the end it’s likely he’ll avoid going to bed when you’re there at all, just so you don’t have to endure his nightmares
As the big brother, he automatically assumes he needs to put on a brave face and push people away, but he really doesn’t
It’ll take a lot to convince him otherwise though

Of the Silmarils
Fëanor, being come to his full might, was filled with a new thought, or it may be that some shadow of foreknowledge came to him of the doom that drew near;
...and he pondered how the light of the Trees, the glory of the Blessed Realm, might be preserved imperishable.
Mandos foretold that the fates of Arda, earth, sea, and air, lay locked within them.
Then he began a long and secret labour, and he summoned all his lore, and his power, and his subtle skill; and at the end of all he made the Silmarils.
As three great jewels they were in form. . . . Like the crystal of diamonds it appeared and yet was more strong than adamant, so that no violence could mar it or break it within the kingdom of Arda.
Yet that crystal was to the Silmarils but as is the body to the Children of Illúvatar: the house of its inner fire, that is within it and yet in all parts of it, and is its life.

You (Kili x Reader)
Credits for the image go to Pinterest and whoever made and posted it.
Based on/off of Ed Sheeran’s Kiss Me. Love the song so much.
Y/N - your name
f/c - favourite colour
e/c - eye colour
Markhel - shield of all shields
He was getting married today. He was getting married today.
Pacing the room, deep in thought, his uncle chuckled deeply and said, “You better not wear out your legs, Kili. You’ll be standing a long while.”
“What’s taking her so long, you think uncle?”
The king shrugged.
“Probably perfecting her wedding dress.”
“She’d look amazing in whatever she wore.”
Thorin shook his head at this illogical subject that they were talking about just to get Kili’s mind off the wedding.
A knock sounded at the door and Kili quickly looked towards it. Sigrid carefully opened the door and peeked in, smiling mischievously.
“Let’s get this show on the road folks!” she announced before closing the door and leaving to go help you out again.
Ten minutes later…
Kili gazed at you awestruck as you walked to him in your f/c dress with a glowing smile on your face.
She looks beautiful, he thought, And she’s going to be mine.
Once you reached him, you grinned and whispered, “You look dashing, markhel.”
He was too much in a daze that you were right beside him to reply so you simply prevented your giggle and waited for the king to begin the ceremony.
Seventy minutes later…
Kili slowly lifted the veil that covered your face over and dived into your e/c eyes.
“Hello, love,” you murmured, now in a daze.
“You may now kiss the bride!” Thorin announced a few meters beside you.
Kili continued to stare at you, expression full of joy and excitement and a bit of hunger for you.
Shivering a bit once you saw it, you asked lowly, “Kiss me?”
He leaned down and whispered, “Thank you for marrying me.”
You pressed your lips to his and kissed him lovingly, taking your time to show him just how happy and grateful you were too that he chose you, cared for you, protected you, and, most of all, loved you.

"I am no Man." 🗡

J. R. R. Tolkien, undisputedly a most fluent speaker of this language, was criticized in his day for indulging his juvenile whim of writing fantasy, which was then considered—as it still is in many quarters— an inferior form of literature and disdained as mere “escapism.” “Of course it is escapist,” he cried. “That is its glory! When a soldier is a prisoner of war it is his duty to escape—and take as many with him as he can.” He went on to explain, “The moneylenders, the knownothings, the authoritarians have us all in prison; if we value the freedom of the mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, then it’s our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as possible."

Ecthelion being taller than you would include:
If you’re considerably shorter than Ecthelion, he’ll keep comments about it to a minimum, it’s not important to him and he doesn’t want to make you feel bad by bringing it up
If someone else makes a comment, he’ll be very disapproving, even if the other person only meant it as a joke
Although he’ll never admit it’s due to your height, he finds you incredibly cute, especially when you’re fired up about something
He’ll just be standing next to you, looking down at you and getting lost in the way you move your hands and the way your face scrunches up
“Are you even listening to me?”
He also loves to cuddle with you so much I can’t even explain it. Being so much taller than you just means you’re the perfect height and it’s even more enjoyable
Ecthelion loves it when you sit on his lap, he’s so tall that he can probably put his cheek or chin on the top of your head like that and continue with his work, an arm around your waist
You’re also very warm which aids his enjoyment even more. It’s like having a little space heater all the time (Although this isn’t so great in the summer months)
I’ve said many times that he’s quite protective, but if you’re short and vulnerable it’s even more so – provided you’re not a warrior because then he knows you can take care of yourself
If you’re on the shorter side for humans, you’re almost a dwarf for elves so he constantly worries you’ll be pushed or barged into
Which is why he insists that you hold onto his arm if you’re in a crowd, that way he can’t lose you and he’s always reassured you’re close by
God forbid if someone does actually bump into you, Ecthelion’s glare rivals that of the Feanorians and he can be extremely nasty sometimes as well
He finds it quite endearing when you struggle to reach things on high shelves. He won’t tease you for it but he’ll help you get it down without a word
Your shortness is something he privately finds completely cute and wonderful but he’s also a hard ass so he’ll never admit that to anyone, least of all you
If you or Glorfindel found out how much he adores the height difference, he’d never hear the end of it
