fucking love the term metaphysics. it sounds like some Uber Extreme Edition of Physics 101 that I failed freshman year and which definitely involves math and words like ‘velocity’ & ‘acceleration’ & 'terminal velocity’ & 'fatal deceleration’. but actually it’s just what happens when philosophy post-grads get their grubby little hands on shrooms

tolkien south asian week day five | the noldor | caranthir the dark | @arwenindomiel
But Caranthir, who loved not the sons of Finarfin, and was the harshest of the brothers and the most quick to anger, cried aloud: ‘Yea more! Let not the sons of Finarfin run hither and thither with their tales to this Dark Elf in his caves! Who made them our spokesmen to deal with him?’

hot take but the “we need more strong platonic relationships” vs “we need queer representation” arguments are pointless
this is not a zero sum game! you can have both in fiction! we should have both in fiction
i want to see strong friendships that aren’t romantic but go beyond what is normally seen as a regular friendship. i want to see queer people fall in love with each other. i want to see ambiguous relationships, ones in grey areas, ones that can’t be easily interpreted or categorized
and guess what! i can! because these things aren’t mutually exclusive! there is more than one story in the world and more than one relationship in most of those stories
if you aren’t seeing enough of your preferred type of relationship then that’s the fault of the industry (or possibly whoever is recommending you media) for not encouraging the creation of or promoting those stories, not the people who want to see different types of relationships than you

Maybe I’m just projecting here, but I think a big reason Maedhros and Fingon’s relationship is so compelling is because a lot of us have been Maedhros. Which, initially, sounds pretty dumb because none of us are kinslayers compelled by a terrible oath (I hope), but we’ve all been “bad” people at some point. Whether it was from trauma or mental health issues or just exceptionally shitty life circumstances, there are definitely times when we’re just not our best selves, and I think the idea that someone could still love us and fight for us and that we could have someone there to make us want to be better, just like Fingon is to Maedhros, is a really nice thought. And I think this is different from a lot of the “villain/good guy” things because Maedhros is also not a villain. Especially when Fingon is still in the picture, he’s a hero, too. And because Fingon is Fingon, we kind of inherently understand that this isn’t a “love fixes everything” story where the nice person is sacrificing themself for someone who is only redeemable through their love and more of a “hey you’re really going through some shit right now and you’re going to get yourself better and I’m going to stick with you through it and stubbornly refuse to give up on you” story, and I think that there’s a lot to admire there and find inspiring.

I am obsessed with thinking about ghost stories in Middle Earth. And because of that I want to share some of my favourite ideas for tales and folklore told by the Men of Middle earth
The White Rider and his (wild) Hunt: From the time when Oromë and his hunters still roamed outside of valinor exists a warped version. painting him and his followers as a band of lost souls hunting down melkor's remaining spirit, luring the living to join them and hel their cause, with a vengeful spirit/ god as their leader
The singing mist / the mourning wanderer/ Voice of Fog and Storm: various versions of a haunting voice rising through the thick ocean fog, driving everyone who listens into madness. Sometimes you can see a tall and willowy figure on the beach, leaving no traces in the sand. Obviously inspired by Maglor singing the Noldolante
The Lost Lord of old: Another folktale that sprung from Maglor's encounters with mortals. Though the Lost Lord is a figure of haunting beauty and the majesty of long gone ages. A figure that appears to sailors who were swept overboard and washed upon the shore. A lone figure appearing on the beach holding itself with weary regality, healing the sailors and leaving again.
Night of Broken Promises: The nearest villages around the Stone of Erech tell about the one night where the ghosts of the mountains come to steal everyone who broke a promise. One can protect oneself and one's home with light and offerings to appease the spirits
The Seven Devils/ Brothers of Grief: various ghost stories about the sons of Feanor. Tales about their deeds, warped by time and anger. They are the boogeymen of Arda. In a time where neither Morgoth nor Sauron hold power the sons of feanor continue to exist as demons stealing away children, luring them into woods, sparking fires in houses, sickening the cattle or breaking apart lovers
Fire Heart, The Wanderer, The Hunter, The Dark Sorrow, Gold Handed Devil, Barn's Bain and The Hateful Helper. That are their names.

Arwenindomiel’s Tolkien South Asian Week day five: the Noldor; Everyone in Middle-Earth is Brown [62/?]:
Maedhros did deeds of surpassing valour, and the Orcs fled before his face; for since his torment upon Thangorodrim his spirit burned like a white fire within, and he was as one that returns from the dead. Thus the great fortress upon the Hill of Himring could not be taken, and many of the most valiant that remained, both of the people of Dorthonion and of the east marches, rallied there to Maedhros; and for a while he closed once more the Pass of Aglon, so that the Orcs could not enter Beleriand by that road.
