why does this look like a love story
(Or worse, a perfect /younger/ brother…)
Being surrounded by perfect brothers doesn’t help! It’s ok, my dad may have favourites but I’m sure Fëanor loved them all equally.
*a wild Tyelko!Maria appears* AHHHHHHHHHHHH the Celegorm one made my eye twitch a tiny bit
ah Tyelko!Maria is here! oh but you have to understand, it’s the first time for him reading The Silm and he was quite upset with both Celegorm and Curufin re: Beren and Lúthien. He’ll get used to it xD
imindhowwelayinjune hat gesagt: "…he should behave more like his brother!" Boy, things Celegorm probably got reallllly sick of hearing, growing up. (Haha your dad is giving me some family dynamics ideas…)
I bet he did! Enough reason to actually not want to behave like said brother. Poor Tyelko, I know what it is to grow up with a perfect older brother! (hahaha good! yessss)
xredriverx hat gesagt: Omg I need to borrow your dad! He is awesome! I laughed so hard at the Celegorm part XDDD
Oh he’s really mad at Celegorm right now! I think he’s going all dad on him and does not approve of his behaviour. “I’m disappointed in him. He should know better, he should behave more like his brother!” he says. I wouldn’t want to be Celegorm right now.
xredriverx hat gesagt: Best character to talk about! XD Maybe it’s the red hair? And the fact that he’s such a badass?
The fact that he’s such a badass definitely is one of the reasons we enjoy talking about him so much since dad won’t stop talking about that!
"Celegorm is a little shit, he’s not like his brother Maedhros."
"Maeglin should have been sent to Maedhros, he would have taught him to be more badass".
Those are some examples of what my father tells me at the most random moments of the day xD
I need doriath as like. the forest of femslash
HELLO FRIEND YES.
Doriath has so much potential for pairings, let me count the ways!
Melian/Galadriel mentor/student pair with benefits, Lúthien/Galadriel as unexpected lady cousins who have a lot more in common than either of them may think, Nellas/Niënor because narrative parallels, Galadriel/Nimloth as another mentoring narrative but this time turned around after Melian’s departure, Nellas/Galadriel wide-eyed crushing from a distance, Galadriel/Morwen helping her heal from the experiences in Dor-lómin with bonus Morwen/Melian, or even Morwen/Melian/Galadriel (which is a fic that actually exists!), Nellas/Lúthien hero-worship and maybe first kisses, Nellas/Melian because Nellas is too adorable to not want to cuddle to the end of the world, and more that I’d need to think about a bit harder for storylines, but how about Niënor/Galadriel, Niënor/Melian, Nellas/Nimloth, Niënor/Nimloth…
And that’s not even including the female textual ghosts who could be fleshed out.
NELLAS/ANY LADY yes I live for this. Especially Nellas/Niënor (I love those two separately so much, imagine them together!).
Can you believe I had never thought of Galadriel/Morwen until now? Shame on me!
wouldnt it be cool to just like not feel nervous about everything all the time
I had the biggest crush ever on Maglor when I was 12. That was when I first got into Tolkien, like I’ve already mentioned it was because of Blind Guardian and you know, the whole “Maglor lives” thing and the fact that back then I thought of him like the lovely one with the beautiful voice who could still fuck your shit up but remain lovely while doing so (now I think of him as someone a lot more fierce but I was young and innocent back then). He’s also the one that survived and because the whole book had hurt me so much I clinged to him because he was still alive. I sort of still do… (I’m not good at letting people go and I didn’t want to let go of Maglor, hence why to me the world changed but he still lived and my joureny through Middle Earth, regardless of what I was reading, has always been done while clinging to Maglor. I know, I have issues). He was perfect and I loved him. I still love him. But I changed, life changed and I see everything differently now.
Do I have an elf crush on anyone now? I have crushes on all the elvish ladies, no doubt about that (talk about seeing things differently lmao). Mostly on Idril, Finduilas, Aredhel and Lúthien.
My love for Maedhros is definitely different and not a crush. Same with Fëanor and Caranthir. It’s hard to explain. I might have a crush on Fingon though,
who doesn’t have a crush on Fingon? Why? The characters get into my head and they become alive there and the way Fingon developed in my head is a lot like what it appears I look for in a “special someone”? I sort of relate to Maedhros a bit (actually I feel like I’m something between Maedhros and Caranthir, with a side of Maeglin… charming, right?) and I always felt that Fingon complemented Maedhros because of their EPIC friendship, saving him, being friends despite all that happened between their people and their fathers and just everything we know about them (whether you see it just as friendship or as something else), so I guess it’s only natural that of all the elves, I would have some sort of crush on the one that would “complement” one side of me.
As for the ladies, well, considering how the lady-loving side of myself tends to fall more easily than the gentleman-loving side, and all the ladies I mentioned are amazing in their own ways, it is not surprising that I have crushes on most of them.
Have i ever told you guys how much i absolutely adore corsets
