"His eyes shined with a malicious but fair enchanting light, the jewels on his hair glowed in the darkess pits of Angband, but long gone are those times, and the glow has now vanished..."
Having jewels in his hair is just my headcanon, I like to think these were gave to him by Aule when he once was uncorrupted, but the more time passed they darkened, and after Melkor was defeated they were no more than dull dark stones
concept of Sauron’s Third Age/ LOTR form after he could no longer become beautiful again
“But Sauron was not of mortal flesh, and though he was robbed now of that shape in which he had wrought so great an evil, so that he could never again appear fair to the eyes of Men, yet his spirit arose out of the deep and passed as a shadow and a black wind over the sea, and came back to Middle-Earth and to Mordor that was his home. There he took up again his great Ring in Barad-dûr, and dwelt there, dark and silent, until he wrought himself a new guise, an image of malice and hatred made visible; and the Eye of Sauron the Terrible few could endure.” - The Silmarillion, “Akallabêth”, J.R.R Tolkien

The May Window
Miriel and baby Fёanor.
The way they were before they parted or if they never had.
Disclaimer: lilies of the valley are NOT poisonous in Valinor Probably, no plants are.
The idea of this scene came to me when I noticed that lilies of the valley are ready to bloom this late spring-summer and I started thinking about seasonal flowers in the paradise of Valinor. Would they bloom all at once? Were there different seasons? If not, I thought that people could have had small gardens for there favorite flowers only. So this would be Miriel's lily of the valley garden

whatever canon points i lose for short-haired elves i think i get back with the copper circlet, anyway here’s a Them from before everything went to shit
its probably my favourite feanorian who i should draw more, Caranthir!
I decided to add some gold patterns to his clothes because i think it helps show how he’s the wealthy money man brother, and i thought it just looked cool. I also imagine he sewed the patterns into his clothes himself!
Also, I just see this guy having the absolute worst case of resting bitch face. No matter what, he always looks grumpy and intimidating, and that can scare people away from him. He doesn’t mind though, sometimes he prefers being left alone. I also see him as a surprisingly emotional guy, which often results in him appearing to be the most hot headed of his brothers. Despite this, however, he can be very reasonably and logical.
Other headcanons are that, while he can be charismatic and good at making allies, he can also just be really socially awkward and get flustered quickly, though this depends on the social situation. When it comes to more formal, business type stuff, he’s stoic, to the point, gets what he wants (but it’s all an act he’s freaking out internally), otherwise he can be awkward and just prefers being on his own. Though unfortunately his awkwardness can often come across as him being rude or blunt, as he’s mostly just trying to escape most social situations as quickly as possible.
My partner headcanons that Caranthir is good at cooking, and I agree. But he refuses to cook for his brothers.
Anyway I love this guy and don’t know what else to say.

Finwë and elwë
This was inspired by the fic, "tell tales" by zhie on ao3. It's a really sweet story, I'd suggest y'all read it :D
Basically elwe is mad at fin because they are in big trouble but finwe doesn't care because he is too busy being "fascinated" with the whole situation 😂.
