contemporaryelfinchild replied to your post: BotFA: In Which No One Heeds Glorfinde…

now I’m actually curious to see this movie

//If you’re a Hobbit purist or have an attachment to the characters…it may disappoint/enrage you. I wouldn’t pay 3-D prices, but there are 2-3 scenes that are worth seeing for Silm cackling. I alternated between rage stroke and gut wrenching guffawing. Pretty sure I’m not welcome in that theater anymore…oops.

Middle Earth Meme: 2 VILLAINS
1) Morgoth 

Last of all is set the name of Melkor, He who arises in Might. But that name he has forfeited; and the Noldor, who among the Elves suffered most from his malice, will not utter it, and they name him Morgoth, the Dark Enemy of the World. Great might was given to him by Ilúvatar, and he was coeval with Manwë. In the powers and knowledge of all the other Valar he had part, but he turned them to evil purposes, and squandered his strength in violence and tyranny. For he coveted Arda and all that was in it, desiring the kingship of Manwë and dominion over the realms of his peers.

From splendour he fell through arrogance to contempt for all things save himself, a spirit wasteful and pitiless. Understanding he turned to subtlety in perverting to his own will all that he would use, until he became a liar without shame. He began with the desire of Light, but when he could not possess it for himself alone, he descended through fire and wrath into a great burning, down into Darkness. And darkness he used most in his evil works upon Arda, and filled it with fear for all living things.

Nirnaeth Arnoediad ~ The Battle of Unnumbered Tears [F.A. 472]

’(…) Some have said that even then the Eldar might have won the day, had all their hosts proved faithful. For the Orcs wavered, and their onslaught was stayed, and already some were turning to flight. But even as the vanguard of Maedhros came upon the Orcs, Morgoth loosed his last strength, and Angband was emptied. There came wolves, and wolfriders, and there came Balrogs, and dragons, and Glaurung father of dragons. The strength and terror of the Great Worm were now great indeed, and Elves and Men withered before him.’


ok so I tried drawing the felagund in a fancy getup or sth because Im always torn between “overly casual hippie finrod” and “doesn’t know when to stop king of bling finrod” when at some point I was like waiiiiiiiiiit a minute and realized that who he reminded me of here was princess zelda which is when I ragequit this mess as hard as I could but still ended up thinking about the similarities between ocarina of time and the silmarillion for like an hour damn you finrod felagund
Im was gonna try caranthir but he’ll probably just end up looking like ooccoo jr goodbye

Do you ever think that Mandos gets pissed off by all of the wars in Beleriand? Like one minute he’s just strolling round his Halls, escorting a few foolish Elves around like, “well, my lad, BASE jumping isn’t for everyone…” and then suddenly like 5000 disgrunted, sweaty warriors show up on his front door. And Mandos kind of rolls his eyes, and calls for Vairë to come. But instead of help, in the distance there’s just muffled shouts of “Míriel, bring up red thread! Yes RED THREAD, it’s a battle for crying out loud!!”


But lo! Ecthelion, whose face was of the pallor of grey steel and whose shield-arm hung limp at his side, strode above him as he fell; and that Gnome drave at the demon, yet did not give him his death, getting rather a wound to his sword-arm that his weapon left his grasp. Then leapt Ecthelion lord of the Fountain, fairest of the Noldoli, full at Gothmog even as he raised his whip, and his helm that had a spike upon it he drave into that evil breast, and he twined his legs about his foeman’s thighs; and the Balrog yelled and fell forward; but those two dropped into the basin of the king’s fountain which was very deep. There found that creature his bane; and Ecthelion sank steel-laden into the depths, and so perished the lord of the Fountain after fiery battle in cool waters.

Ecthelien of the Voice of Music" for Jojo || Silmarillion Series 

So Maglor must have a pretty impressive set of lungs, right? I mean, ‘his voice carried over land and sea’ - we’re talking some serious lung capacity here. 
Imagine teenage Maglor tearing through instrument after instrument, searching for something truly exciting, something truly powerful. Harp? Mastered that in a week. Drums? A bit boring really, all you do is whack them with a stick. Flutes? Interesting, but limiting in their impact, too fiddly, too fine for adolescent tastes. Then imagine the smile that crossed his face when some poor, well-intentioned fool hands him a vuvuzela and says ‘try this!’ 
Weeks pass, the neighbours move house, Maedhros threatens to strangle him with his own bootlaces but lo, the fun and games draw to a swift and decisive end when Fëanor arrives home brandishing a royal decree. He waves it triumphantly at Maglor, declaring: ‘Son, you have been officially labeled a disturber of the peace!’ and promptly sets his vuvuzela on fire.
