Ah, the gentle art of Fëanorian diplomacy.
Tolkien: any way you slice it.

Never since have the Ainur made any music like to this music, though it has been said that a greater still shall be made before Ilúvatar by the choirs of the Ainur and the Children of Ilúvatar after the end of days.

July 21st daily doodle sketch-like thing…
Ossë and Uinen, Maiar, servants of Ulmo, in Tolkien’s Silmarillion. Also, for the tolkienreadalong bingo.

The nice thing about the Maiar and the Valar is that they have no concrete, proscribed form or shape… so, that allows for a lot of freedom in their interpretation. And, I like randomly anthropomorphizing sea life. :D

(I’m participating in the Tolkien readalong of The Silmarillion (and I’m on Team Gondolin!) so, if you want to avoid any of the readalong stuff, the tags are “#tolkienreadalong” “#tolkienreadalong bingo” and “#teamgondolin” although, all my stuff for the readalong will probably just end up being part of my daily sketch doodle project.)

Thoughts that happen on long, boring train journeys.

So I know that we think about Maedhros’ torment upon Thangorodrim from his perspective, or from his brothers’, or Fingon’s, or occasionally even from Fëanor’s somewhere within the Halls of Mandos.

But have we really talked about Nerdanel’s perspective?

Have we ever talked about how angry she must have been?

Seeing this and believing war already to be kindled came now those of the Gnomes who might not fare aboard the ships but whose part it was to march along the shores, and they sped behind the Solosimpi, until coming suddenly upon them nigh the Haven’s gate they slew them bitterly or cast them in the sea; and so first perished the Eldar neath the weapons of their kin, and that was a deed of horror.

—The Flight of the Ñoldor as it is told in the old discarded draft of the Book of Lost Tales.

Right, that’s my inbox cleared. 

If you think I owe you a reply but none has thus far appeared at your end, drop me a message, as Tumblr has eaten it. 

But in the horse-scented wake of my return, might I add that if anyone ever fancy a ramble about horses, or Tolkien’s works, or horses in Tolkien’s works, or really any other topic of your choice my ask is always open, and I shall reply at the earliest convenience.

But for now, bed beckons. Nighty night, all.
