Having to give a bath to both Ambarussas and Tyelkormo after they tried to make friend with a skunk OR having Makalaure wake you up by playing the same flute piece in your ear for a week?

meme: make me choose
for @nerdanel-istarnie

Mother, for all that I am sure the first could be an arduous task, I know the second would cost me my mind.
The choice is relatively simple, even though no less excruciating.
Bath would be! At least Tyelko and Ambarussar constant state of motion might help rubbing the smell off them and the task would be brief, whether I liked it or not! 

Feanor and Nerdanel

I commissioned this from the amazing @tosquinha, who did such a fantastic job! i love this so much!! A gentle moment between Feanor and Nerdanel at a party, based on my designs for them.  Did i mention how much i love this???? 


On the House of Fëanor the wrath of the Valar lieth from the West unto the uttermost East, and upon all that will follow them it shall be laid also. Their Oath shall drive them, and yet betray them, and ever snatch away the very treasures that they have sworn to pursue. To evil end shall all things turn that they begin well; and by treason of kin unto kin, and the fear of treason, shall this come to pass.

nos Fëanor, the Dispossessed

So how often do you think Fëanor and Nerdanel did that thing parents do, where they forget the name of the kid they’re calling for and just cycle through all of them? I mean like, especially considering that Elves generally tend to have two names to choose from, and that’s not even counting nicknames, and you have seven sons so it’s like,

“"Ambarussa…Maitim-, no, Kana-…Huan….I mean…Tyelco. ai! You. There! with the hair!“

“It’s Curufin, Atar. I’m Curvo. -.-”

para terminar la semana!

Hubo un momento en la vida de Feanor en la que no era un académico prodigio, o un príncipe, sino solo un joven elfo que ni siquiera tenía la mayoría de edad, enamorado de la hija de su maestro.

Y no creo que Mathan no estuviera completamente consciente de lo que pasaba, pero ah.. que hermoso es ver el amor entre dos jóvenes! ;D

No me pregunten porque Nerdanel tiene que pasar exactamente frente a la mesa de trabajo de Mathan y Feanor, pero me gusta imaginar que lo hacía continuamente, y siempre que lo hacía Feanor perdía la concentración.


and to end the week:

there was a moment in Feanor’s life where he wasn’t a podigy scholar, or a prince, but a young elf -not even of mayority- who was in love with his master’s daughter.

And I suspect Mathan knew what was going on, but ah, what a pleasure it is to see young love!

And don’t ask me why must Nerdanel walk exactly in front of Mathan’s table, but I like to think she does it often…and she manages to distract Feanor everytime!

“While still in early youth Fëanor wedded Nerdanel, a maiden of the Ñoldor; at which many wondered, for she was not among the fairest of her people. But she was strong, and free of mind, and filled with the desire of knowledge. In her youth she loved to wander far from the dwellings of the Ñoldor, either beside the long shores of the Sea or in the hills; and thus she and Fëanor had met and were companions in many journeys”
