Foreground: Turgon playing a flute, Galadriel annoyed by Fëanor, Finrod and Maglor singing a duet, Aredhel playing a tambourine. (Aredhel and Galadriel are the same age, and maybe the elven equivalent of 13-14 years old here.)
Background: Eärwen and Finarfin dancing, Celegorm objecting to Huan's singing, Fingolfin with baby Argon and Anairë, Fingon and Maedhros more interested in each other's company than in music.
And Gandalf said: “This is your realm, and the heart of the greater realm that shall be. The Third Age of the world is ended, and the new age is begun; and it is your task to order its beginning and to preserve what may be preserved. For though much has been saved, much must now pass away; and the power of the Three Rings also is ended. And all the lands that you see, and those that lie round about them, shall be dwellings of Men. For the time comes of the Dominion of Men, and the Elder Kindred shall fade or depart.”
— ELDARION TELCONTAR was the only son and heir of Aragorn and Arwen, and the second High King of the Reunited Kingdom of Gondor and Arnor.
— ELFWINE THE FAIR was the son of Éomer and Lothíriel of Dol Amroth, and the second King of the Third Line of Rohan.
— ELBORON was the son of Faramir and Éowyn, the Steward of Gondor and the second Prince of Ithilien.
I realized I had not uploaded this on tumblr yet. On Twitter I have sometimes “borrowed faces” from my followers (aka used their face for a design, with permission ofc). This is a design I made back in January of @Vikinwo on twitter (Would include a link but I know tumblr hates that) and it’s one of my favourite dwarf designs I have made so far I think
“Don’t the great tales never end?” / “No, they never end as tales. But the people in them come, and go when their part’s ended.” - the stairs of cirith ungol, the return of the king

sansûkh, chapter 40 || made of light, mikky ekko || sansûkh, chapter 41 || little boy in the grass, aurora || sansûkh, chapter 43 || six, sleeping at last || sansûkh, chapter 50 || four, sleeping at last || sansûkh, chapter 50 || everything that dies, matthew and the atlas
intensely last minute parallels post for day 7! i didn’t end up going for the original idea i'd already had before the week, because i really want to do it justice at another time, but i noticed a different theme in the lyrics and excerpts i had already collected! endings and what comes after; endings and the moving on.
it’s too late at night/early in the morning to really go into detail, but i hope i did this story justice over the course of this week, and i hope that, if there are people out there that haven’t read sansûkh yet but see these posts for some reason, they’ll be inspired to do so. it’s so, so worth it.
@determamfidd thank you for everything you’ve done for this fandom. i seriously can’t put into words how much sansûkh means to me, and i know there are many others that feel the same way. so thank you!!
Saeros restrained his anger no longer; and he took out a golden comb, and cast it on the board before Turin, crying: 'Doubtless, Man of Hithlum, you came in haste to this table, and may be excused your ragged cloak; but there is no need to leave your head untended as a thicket of brambles. And maybe if your ears were uncovered you would heed better what is said to you.'(c) J.R.R.Tolkien (I forgot that the comb is golden:(
Maglor babysitting tiny feral Celegorm and using mashed berries to condition his utter disaster mess of hair but forgetting that blueberries stain. Like a lot. And he has bright blond/silver hair. So he and Huan have purple hair for like two weeks and Mags has ruined his favorite white robes.
Celegorm absolutely adores it and Mags is in trouble.
