middle-earth meme: [1/6 friendships] Fingon & Maedhros

Therefore he dared a deed which is justly renowned among the feats of the princes of the Noldor: alone, and without the counsel of any, he set forth in search of Maedhros; and aided by the very darkness that Morgoth had made he came unseen into the fastness of his foes.

I think that we, the Silmarillion fandom, should make our ships less confusing.

I remember when I was a newbie that I was like ‘Angbang? What is that?’ and then I was super confused about why Russingon was named like that until I found out that Russandol is just another name for Maedhros.

Like, let’s face it, we have the best ship names of any fandom but they can be kinda confusing, especially to newbies. Like Silverfisting, Fallen Banners, Golden moles… To this day I still don’t know all of our ship names.

And then there are ships like Glorfindel and Ecthelion that are super popular on AO3 and on Tumblr but they don’t even have a ship name.

I think we should just get all together and make a huge list on AO3 about all the Silmarillion ship names so that newbies don’t have to spend weeks trying to figure out what the ships are.

(yea, I see what’s going on here with the colors -.-”)

It's the most epic romance in The Silmarillion

-one bound by oath to retrieve a silmaril from morgoth

-is captured and held in angband

-lover follows said v attractive person into angband alone to retrieve them despite desperate peril

-hand cut off, but silmaril-seeking idiot is saved through the power of looovvvveeee

-they are reunited at last, in a state of happiness that is temporary at best. they make the most of what little time they have together; it’s far too brief a span of years but it’s enough. it has to be.

-oath-bound half appeases the other’s father so that they can Be Together





Fingon and Mae- *AHEM*

Beren and Lúthien!!! :))))))))

I got an anon prompting me for more Fingros. I’ll get to it soon (…it’s a good prompt!) but clearly I’ve been letting the side down so here’s some garbage I wrote ages ago for partner in crime @imindhowwelayinjune while we were doing Treat Me Soft. It’s literally just this but with the OTP. Sorry not sorry. 

“Alright,” Fingon said, hoping he sounded soothing and not vaguely panicked. The surgeries were done. No complications, the healers had assured him. Everything had gone as well as could be expected and Maedhros was as healthy as anyone in his situation could be. Which was not close to healthy enough, Fingon thought, his heart aching. “Eat the lembas."

anonymous asked:

Hey you amazing writer! Do you accept very short fics requests? Could you write a story how awkwardly teenage Fingon and Maedhros were crushing on each other back in Tirion? Their lame & cringey attempts at flirting? First teenage kiss? xxx

It had been easy once, Fingon remembered. He and Maedhros had spent hours together, laughing and talking of everything and nothing at all. But now their easy camaraderie was given over to strained silences, to awkward throat clearings and shuffling feet.

Strife would come between them in the end, pain and betrayal and a thousand miles of ice and war-torn kingdoms. But what lay between them now was something far more insidious and far less surmountable:
