Tolkien OC Week- Day Two,Family Members
The Great Architect of Tirion
Among the first elves who awoke in Cuiviénen, only one devised structures of wood and stone large enough to dwell in. She was called Ontamë, the Mason, and she delighted in all that sprung from beneath her feet. Only Mahtan’s love of the earth rivaled her own and the two were wed on the shores of the Sea of Helcar beneath the stars.
She journeyed to the Blessed Lands with the Host of Finwë and set to work building great towers, halls, courtyards, and palaces as soon as she arrived on its shores. In Valinor she taught many in the ways of masonry and founded a school of architecture in Tirion. Chief among her students were Anairë, wife of Fingolfin and their son Turgon. As well as Finrod, and Galadriel of the house of Finarfin. And later her great grandson Celebrimbor.
She bore one child, Nerdanel who wed Fëanor the only son of Finwë and Míriel Serindë. Together they gifted Ontamë with seven grandchildren whom she adored. She was a doting grandmother who nurtured curiosity and a love of the arts in her grandsons. And they loved her as if she were a second mother. Celegorm was most alike her in mood and Caranthir the most alike in face.
She remained in Tirion with her husband and daughter, and did not return to Middle Earth with the host of Noldor after the Darkening.

Tolkien OC Week- Day One, Shipping
The Wayward Minstrel and the Healer.
In the early days of the Second Age, near the Numenorean settlement of Vinyalonde, lived a great and renowned healer. She dwelt alone in the woods, spending her time gathering various plants for medicines, and healing all who came to her. She was called Elioril, the Blessed.
On one autumn day at the mouth of the river Gwathlo, she came across an elf badly wounded and close to death. She took him back to her home and tended to his wounds for many weeks as he healed.
When he awoke, greeted by her smiling face, he pledged his services to her in thanks for her kindness. She accepted his offer. The elf, who she came to know as Daeron of Doriath, stayed with her for many long years and a great love grew between them. In her 379th year of life, they were parted.

Tolkien OC Week- Day Three, Background Characters
The First Ring Bearer
Growing suspicious and doubtful of his ally and collaborator, Celebrimbor, Lord of Eregion, forged in secret three elven rings of power. His worst fears were realized when his supposed friend, Annatar betrayed him and revealed himself as the Fallen Maia Sauron.
Sauron demanded the rings of power be rendered unto him, but Lord Celebrimbor refused. Instead he gave the three un-spoiled elven rings to his most trusted Sargent-at-arms; Elhadron, the faithful, a refugee of the House of the Fountain of Gondolin. Celebrimbor instructed him to deliver the rings to none but Gil-Galad, High King of the Noldor, Círdan, The Shipwright, and the Lady Galadriel. Elhadron, wished to stay by his Lord’s side and defend Eregion till the bitter end, but Celebrimbor would not relent. There was no one else he trusted with this task.
As Sauron’s forces loomed over Ost-in-edhil, Elhadron, alone, narrowly escaped the city through a secret passage leading from The House of Mírdain to the mouth of the river Gwathló. Celebrimbor destroyed the entrance to the passage to prevent any from following, and he defended it until his capture by the enemy.
The three rings of power slipped through Sauron’s grasp, and Elhadron bore them through many perils before finally delivering them to their intended bearers.

Silmarillion fandom is great. You'll be scrolling and see art of a very pretty elf who looks like he escaped from a boy band and maybe you can't guess which one this is but you know in your heart he's committed war crimes
