SIRI OMFG BUT WHY WHY ARE YOU SO HAPPY LIKE EXPLAIN THAT TO ME PLEASE WHAT IS IT S THAT EVERYBODY ARE SO HAPPY I LOVE YOU FOR THAT OK BUT WHY <3
WELL OBVIOUSLY IT’S BECAUSE YOUR AWESOME AND BEAUTIFUL AND WE MISSED YOU
Fëanor, “Of the Flight of the Noldor”, the Silmarillion.
I always thought this was a really beautiful turn of phrase, in Fëanor’s speech to the Noldor. But I just realised it’s also horribly ironic because it’s basically exactly what happened to Maglor, in the end.
|| Yes, thank you for the afternoon feels. Thank you. Now add the sentence: “The deeds that we shall do shall be the matter of song until the last days of Arda.”
Now, can we please talk about how vital this parallel makes Maglor to the entire story and how it makes his eventual fate not a bittersweet afterthought to the story but the ultimate conclusion of the flight of the Noldor?
So everyone (including me) is wishing for Thranduil being a mother hen to Legolas in Botfa but please take a moment to consider the opposite
Thranduil recieving a sword-cut but insisting he has much more important things to do than bothering the healers with a mere scratch. Legolas picking up the blade that cut him, taking one look at the faintly greenish liquid smeared over it and going: “Ada, that wound has to be cleaned. This blade was poisoned and I know what kind of poison it is. The orcs in Greenwood use it all the time.”
"It can wait."
"It can not wait. If you don’t clean it you’ll die. Sit down. I’ll fix this. No excuses.”
Thranduil muttering something about insolent elflings before he sits down, knowing his son is too much like him to change his mind.
