In honour of May the Fourth, do have any Sith!Fëanor headcanons? 😂
Hmmm...
» Fëanor was insane about his technologies. Eventually, long after making his first sword, he tried to make a sword that didn’t rust, bend, or get notched. The solution: a sword made from a beam of light, focused through a Silmaril.
» He kept this invention secret, but naturally Melkor found out because Mairon knew and Mairon is a gossip
» Melkor approached Fëanor about his new invention, which resulted in the whole ‘Get thee gone from my gate, thou jail-crow of Mandos!‘ situation
» However, Melkor managed to manipulate Fëanor and soon had him wrapped around his little finger with Fëanor noticing it.
» Melkor used his little puppet to do all sorts of baddie things. Soon enough, elves were dying and Fëanor was embarrassed. From that day on, he hid his face from the world and withdrew his light.
» He devised yet another alphabet for himself and his sons to use (his sons came in varying levels of willingness, Maedhros, Curufin, and Celegorm were very eager but the others were a bit more reluctant) and named himself Darth Fëanor. He was the Avenger of Wrongs.
» Melkor stole the Light and ran away. Fëanor was insulted. Fëanor angry. Out comes his lightsaber, and many elves go to Mandos. When Fëanor is angry, none of his opponents survive.
» Fëanor came to Middle-earth, but he was no match for the Rancor-Balrogs. He died and went to Mandos and repented
» Somewhere along the way, the computer and Internet were invented and they made their way to Mandos. Fëanor was intrigued by this new invention and created a website called Tumblr, where he created his own account...

Can I ask headcannons about how Lindir teaches me to play a musical instrument (like a guitar or something)?🥺
This is such a cute ask also I am so sorry for the delay in requests
(I do not own LoTR or The Hobbit or it’s it’s characters/gif not mine)
Tumblr media
Most elves if not all of them are well versed in instruments and song Lindir is not an exception to this rule
He’s always wanted to teach you one of the instruments he knows how to play but he’s always respected your wishes and doesn’t want to push you to do anything
So when you ask he does a little jump of joy
This man will be so careful with you doing anything that includes playing guitar
Lindir would sit you in his lap and place the guitar on you that way he can lean over to move your hands and demonstrate
Shivers down your spine when he grabs your hand to position it correctly his hands are a lot bigger than yours and practically envelope your fingers
For a long while he purely just teaches you giving you cheek kisses and running his hands down your shoulders when you play something right
However this is just Lindir testing the water to see if you’re completely comfortable with him
After he sees you’re done playing or just playing a few notes at random he wraps both his arms around your waist and rests his chin on your shoulder
Lean back into him and his heart will melt kisses ensue and he only wants to hold you tighter
Lindir will play guitar for you whenever you want him to he loves the thought of holding something you have touched not to mention having your full attention
If you try and play for him beginner or advanced he will love it
You get rewarded with kisses it’s no secret, this elf just wants an excuse to kiss you even more
If he hears you practicing something he has taught you while doing his duties his heart races and he stops to listen just for a little bit before maintaining a smile the whole day because of you

the line of elros ❖ stewards of gondor ❖ headcanon disclaimer
          Orodreth was the son of Belecthor I, and the sixteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor. Conscious of his father’s efforts to protect Gondor from the Corsairs, Orodreth spent his rule fortifying the nation’s borders and keeping their enemies at bay. His wife was Beleth, the daughter of one of his generals, whom he wed to win the trust of the armies. Beleth was fascinated by jewelry, and though she was not herself a jewelsmith, she frequently designed necklaces and rings for the craftsmen of Minas Tirith to make for her and her friends.           The son of Beleth and Orodreth was Ecthelion I, who succeeded his father and continued his work of building up Gondor’s defenses. Near the end of his life, Ecthelion rebuilt the White Tower of Minas Tirith first constructed by King Calimehtar, repairing it and raising it to greater heights. He was aided in this effort by his friend Prince Rûkhir, whom he envied for the freedom to love as he wished in the much more accepting coastal fief of Dol Amroth. Ecthelion himself never took a wife, for his desires were turned to men, and as Steward in Minas Tirith he was not so fortunate as to be able to take a husband like Rûkhir did with the warrior Batânaglar.            As he had no children, Ecthelion was succeeded by his cousin Egalmoth, the son of his father’s sister Morwen and likewise named for a Lord of Gondolin.

Tolkien OC Week: a fandom event for OCs and underdeveloped characters in Tolkien's world!
This blog celebrates both characters of Tolkien's world and our own characters that need more love, by creating and reblogging all kind of fanworks, like fanfiction, fanart, fanvideos, fancrafts, headcanons, playlists, edits, moodboards etc. NSFW text entries are allowed and we’ll tag them accordingly when we reblog them, but please put them behind a “read more”.
We're tracking the tag tolkienocweek!
The event is modded by @niphredilien, @elamarth-calmagol and @stormxpadme and will take place between 26th July - 1st August 2021 for the first time.
******************************************* *******************************************
The event schedule for 2021:
Day 1 (26th July): Shipping - create a piece of fanwork about an OC that you ship with a canon character.
Day 2 (27th July): Family members - create a piece of fanwork about a character who fills a gap left in a family tree (e.g., Legolas' mother, Maglor's spouse, Aragorn and Arwen's younger children).
Day 3 (28th July): Background characters - create a piece of fanwork about a character who is in the background of canon scenes and is either never mentioned or barely mentioned in the story (e.g., an extra from Laketown, a Teler defending their ships during the First Kinslaying, the Haradric man that Sam sees die) and show their view of the events.
Day 4 (29th July): Self insert/reader insert - create a piece of fanwork that includes yourself being in Middle Earth, or write a reader insert story.
Day 5 (30th July): Worldbuilding - create a piece of fanwork about a character who lives in a different place or time from the main canonical events (e.g., a character from Rhûn, a character who stays in Valinor after the Darkening, a character living in Gondor when the kings were still ruling etc.) and flesh out their world.
Day 6 (31th July): Forgotten characters - take a character who is neglected (e.g. Bob and Nob in Bree, Eärwen) or abandoned by Tolkien (e.g. Trotter the hobbit) and make them your own by creating a piece of fanwork about them. Or, completely redesign a canon character to make them yours (e.g., Gil-Galad becoming Fin-Galad).
Day 7 (1st August): Freeform - create a piece of fanwork about whatever resonates with you.
******************************************* ******************************************* We are looking forward to see and share all the awesome work you come up with.
Since we want to celebrate creations about neglected characters all year long, the mods will occasionally reblog posts and fancreations about OCs and underdeveloped characters. If you would like to see your post on our blog, you're very welcome to tag tolkienocweek. Since tumblr's tagging system is often being faulty, don't hesitate to message us, too!
Let's get creative!

          Belecthor I was the son of Húrin II, and was the fifteenth Ruling Steward of Gondor. Durin his rule, the Corsairs of Umbar once more threatened Gondor, and he spent much time and resources defending the coasts. Though the Corsairs were not defeated, Gondor managed to lock them in stalemate for many years.           The wife of Belecthor was Glóredhel, a charming woman who kept cheer throughout Minas Tirith even while her husband was away fighting pirates. She threw many large parties to distract the worried public, and became well-beloved by her people.           Glóredhel bore Belecthor two children: a son, Orodreth, and a daughter, Morwen.

          Boromir was the son of Denethor I, and was the eleventh Ruling Steward of Gondor. Near the end of his father’s rule, the Watchful Peace came to an end when Sauron and the lords of Minas Morgul unleashed upon Ithilien a new and terrible breed of orcs known as the Uruk-hai. Boromir himself led the campaign to recover the land overrun and assailed by the Uruk-hai, defeating the Morgul host and regaining Ithilien, though Osgiliath was captured and its great stone bridge destroyed.           At Boromir’s side on the battlefield were his sibling Emeldir and his wife Amathael. They were all valiant warriors, but by the time victory was won Amathael had been slain and Boromir had received a Morgul-wound. Despite his might and strength, this wound and the loss of his dear wife sapped his life, and he died after a rule of only twelve years, sorrowful and shrunken with pain.           He was succeeded by his son Círion, who inherited a shrunken kingdom with many enemies. Emboldened by Gondor’s recent losses, the Corsairs of Umbar increased their raids along the coasts, while the populations of Calenardhon and Ithilien were diminishing. Círion fortified his borders, including the long-neglected forts along the northern Anduin, where he discovered new enemies, the Balchoth, creeping from the East.           Desperate to defend his people, Círion dispatched six messengers to ride forth and beg the aid of Gondor’s historic allies, the Éothéod who had once been Kings of Rhovanion and even wed their princess Vidumavi to Valacar, the twentieth King of Gondor. Círion had little hope of his message arriving and was uncertain how the Éothéod would respond, and so gathered as great a strength as he could and prepared to lead it himself against the Balchoth, leaving his son Hallas and his wife Hirwen in command at Minas Tirith.           The Balchoth soon overpowered the Gondorian armies and cut them off from aid, whereupon they were attacked by orcs from the Misty Mountains. Vastly outnumbered, Círion despaired—when suddenly the horns of the Éothéod were heard and the tides of battle reversed. Only one of Círion’s messengers survived the arduous journey, but Éorl, Lord of the Éothéod, had answered Gondor’s call, sweeping away the enemy and driving them across the fields of Calenardhon.           After this great victory, Círion returned to Minas Tirith to recover, but asked Éorl to meet him again in three months upon the banks of the Mering Stream. When the time came, Círion led Éorl and his men up the hill of Amon Anwar where Elendil was buried in secret. Círion offered the land of Calenardhon to the Éothéod in perpetual alliance with Gondor, and when Éorl accepted they swore an Oath of even in the name of Eru Ilúvatar himself of everlasting friendship between the two realms. This solemn Oath was witnessed by Círion’s heir, Prince Zôrahad of Dol Amroth, and two other Councilors of Gondor.           With the changing of the borders, Círion decided that the Tradition of Isildur for which the office of Steward was first created to protect was now made void, and removed Elendil’s casket from Amon Anwar to the Hallows of Minas Tirith where the other kings were buried.           Círion was succeeded by his son Hallas, who coined the name of Rohan, the land of which Éorl was now King, and its people the Rohirrim. He frequently visited Rohan, as he was great in friendship with Éorl, and it was on one such journey that he fell in love with his wife Thalieth. Though she was a woman of Gondor, Thalieth was common-born and would likely never have met the Steward’s son were it not for her great skill with horses allowing her to accompany him to Rohan. Hallas saw the completion of the Golden Hall of Meduseld by Éorl’s son Brego, and attended the great celebration, a feast he remembered fondly all his life.           Thalieth and Hallas’ son Húrin II, named for Húrin Thalion as well as his ancestors Húrin of Emyn Arnen and Húrin I, continued Gondor’s friendship with Rohan. Húrin collected many textiles from various lands, his favorites being silks from the East despite his nation’s historic rivalry with its people. He spent most of his time focused on trading for fabrics and communicating with the Kings of Rohan, leaving his wife Beldis to manage Gondor and teach their son Belecthor how to rule.

Elros Headcannons
Tumblr media
* Elros isn't much of an outgoing ellon and is very forward with what's on his mind and what he might want to do, some would even say blunt. This is a very bad trait to find amongst the elves, as it's not always deemed attractive in their culture. Most elves prefer others that are composed and softer with their opinions and reservations almost to a passive degree.
* Elros, however, is from Greenwood and every elf around knows that greenwood elves are built a tad different. They don't care much for typical selfish mannerisms and decorum, though that's not to say that they don't have and or show respect to one another. With this in mind, know that Elros holds himself like this because that is what's commonplace in his home. Were he to go to a different city or residence in Arda then he can and will act accordingly as it's fairly easy for him to adjust.
*Elros greatly enjoys his quiet time and doesn't detest the dungeons as much as often thought because in these many many long hours he is primarily to himself lost to his thoughts. Sometimes he'll even take advantage of this time and has a nap or catches up on his reading. Every now and again a friend or two will come down to keep him company but if it extends longer than he'd like he can grow quite irritable.
*Elros is a fantastic drinking buddy, in this kind of setting he can really flourish and loves to dote on his compatriots. He's the best friend, the wingman, the significant other for unwanted advances, and the safe friend to drunkenly stumble home with you because “i dare a bitch”. Be warned that if he hasn't counted his rounds he is terrible about backtracking on his numbers and the longer he goes on the more likely his number are to be heavily skewed.
* Actually has a very soft and kind laugh, almost melodic. You wouldn't get to hear it often as Elros is more of a smiler than a laugher, which is fine because it continues to suit the softness of his general being. The only time it strays from his heavenly song set is when he's had a drink or two, then it gains a cackled lull to it. Don't point out his sweet laugh under any circumstance because it will embarass him.
*6/10 hugs, not typically the first pick but still a solid choice

          Denethor I was the son of Rían and the nephew of Dior, and was the tenth Ruling Steward of Gondor. He was good-tempered and kind, humbled from a childhood working on a farm with his father, and was much beloved by his people. His wife was Felucaliel, a high-ranking noblewoman of Minas Tirith whom he wed first for politics. Felucaliel was shy and withdrawn for the first years of their marriage, but in time they grew to be friends, and though they were never deeply in love she grew more comfortable with her husband and they would collaborate often on scholarly projects.           Felucaliel bore Denethor three children. The eldest, a daughter, was named Lalwen after Írimë Lalwen, a princess of the Noldor. She was cheerful even as an infant, and her mother betowed her name, meaning “laughing maiden,” with much hope and gladness; the Lalwen of the First Age endured many hardships with a light spirit, and Felucaliel hoped her daughter would be similarly joyful. Lalwen grew into a charming and adored lady, and though she was sought after by many noblemen, she never married, preferring the company of other women.           The second child of Denethor and Felucaliel was Emeldir, named for the mother of the famed Beren Erchamion. As they grew into an adult uncomfortable with the feminine role they had been assigned, Emeldir took comfort in their ancestor’s epithet of “the Manhearted” and resolved that if she could become a great warrior, so could they. Though they never expressed their true self to their parents, Emeldir confided in their siblings and were supported by their younger brother when they disguised themself as a soldier in order to ride with him to war.           Denethor’s youngest child and heir was named Boromir, an alteration of Vóromir, who had been the thirteenth Lord of Andúnië. Though Vóromir’s rule as Lord was mostly uneventful, he had wed Aranel, the daughter of Gimilzagar, one of Andúnië’s political enemies. Theirs was a love story of compassion and not of politics, and Denethor hoped his son would be similarly kind and magnanimous.           Near the end of Denethor’s rule, Sauron broke the Watchful Peace and sent his newest monsters, a dreadful race of orcs known as the Uruk-hai, to invade Ithilien. Though unprepared for war after hundreds of years of peace, Denethor rallied the people of Gondor to their nation’s defense, calling upon lords from across the land, including Prince Gimlibên I of Dol Amroth. Boromir led Gondor’s troops to war with Emeldir at his side, valiantly fighting in defense of the nation he would soon lead.

          Hador was the youngest child and only son of Túrin I by his second wife, Meldis. He witnessed his father’s poor treatment of his first family, Andreth of Belfalas and her daughters, and resolved to be a kinder husband and kinsman. After Túrin’s death, Hador reconciled with his estranged sisters and invited them to return to Minas Tirith. The youngest and worst-treated, Níniel, did not come, but her elder sisters Lalaith and Nellas were glad to be welcomed back to the city of their birth and the family they had left behind.           Lalaith was older than Hador’s own mother, and soon became a mentor to Meldis in needlework and philosophy. Nellas was likewise many years Hador’s elder, but the two became fast friends, and she often advised him in political decisions.           Due to Túrin’s age at the time of his birth, Hador inherited young, before his marriage. Like his father, Hador wed the love of his youth, but he was determined to remain a loving husband to his wife. Thus, when that wife confessed to him shortly after the birth of their first and only child that he was a man at heart, Hador fully supported his transition from wife to husband despite the scandal it caused in court. This husband, who named himself Maerion, lived joyfully at Hador’s side, though due to the hostile nature of Gondorian politics he often went on long journeys, mastering the bow and entering athletic competitions in the various fiefs throughout the land.           Hador ruled in a time of peace, and became known not for any great deeds but rather his alteration of the Stewards’ Reckoning first established by his ancestor Mardil Voronwë. On the three hundredth anniversary of the calendar’s implementation, he added an extra day to the year to reduce the millennial deficit and ensure that timekeeping was kept in synchronization with the seasons. He lived to an admirable age of 150 years, but was the last man of Gondor to have such a lifespan; after him, the lifespan of those with Númenórean blood began to wane.           The son of Hador and Maerion was Barahir, named as his father was for a mighty lord of the Edain. As his father’s reign was long and mostly uneventful, Barahir gave little thought to running a nation and focused instead on hunting in the White Mountains. He was frequently absent from home, leading to quarrels between him and his wife Taweneth. Though Taweneth did not leave Minas Tirith, after one such argument she did depart to a different part of the city, taking her daughter Rían with her, though Barahir insisted he keep his son Dior with him in the Stewards’ house.           Barahir grew old sooner than his ancestors, and upon his death at age 122 it began to be speculated that a harsh temperament decreased the lifespan of a Dúnadan. Fearing his own decline, his son Dior decided to spend his rule as Steward doing good deeds. Dior oversaw the renovation of Minas Tirith’s lower districts, providing food and shelter for the poor, and ensured that Gondor’s outer settlements received as much support as the capital did. Alas, this did not prevent him from succumbing to old age at 107, though he was remembered kindly by his people for his efforts.           Dior never married, for his desires were turned toward men and the attitude of Gondor was against such unions at the time, especially after his grandfathers Hador and Maerion flouted custom with their “unconventional” marriage. He took various lovers throughout his life, but kept his affections secret to all but his sister Rían, whose son Denethor was named Dior’s heir.           Rían came of age free of her father’s shadow. She became an herbalist in the Houses of Healing and was known for her curiosity about the wider world. Once, on a visit to Ithilien, Rían made the acquaintance of an elf who had once been of the Laegrim, those led by King Denethor who died on Amon Ereb. Rían greatly admired her new friend and was eager to hear the tales of the Laegrim, returning to Minas Tirith to ensure the story was recorded correctly. She even named her son Denethor in the Avarin king’s honor.           The husband of Rían was Bellmund, a farmer who dwelt on the outskirts of the Pelennor Fields who once came to the Houses of Healing for treatment of a deep cut received while reaping his crops. They fell in love and were soon wed; though her mother Taweneth was sad to see her daughter leave, she allowed Rían to move to her husband’s farm, in part to spite Barahir’s disapproval of the union.           When Barahir died and Dior became Steward, Rían frequently took to visiting her brother in the city, accompanied by her son Denethor. When it became apparent that Dior would not marry, she convinced him to name Denethor his heir, and moved her family from Bellmund’s farm to the Steward’s House.

          Túrin I was the youngest child and only son of Húrin I, and was the seventh Ruling Steward of Gondor. He married young to Andreth, his childhood sweetheart, whom he loved dearly for a time. But he was quick to anger and stubborn in his convictions, causing much strife in his family. When Andreth bore him a daughter, whom he named Lalaith after the sister of his legendary namesake, he was at first a proud and doting father. But upon the birth of his second daughter, named Nellas after Túrin Turambar’s elven friend, his mood began to darken. He expressed disappointment in Andreth for failing to provide him an heir, and insisted on having another child as soon as his wife recovered.           It took longer than Túrin wished for Andreth to conceive a third time, and in the years between the birth of Nellas and the next child he ignored his second daughter, though he still approved of Lalaith’s accomplishments as she learned needlecraft. When at last Andreth bore him a third daughter, named Níniel after the first Túrin’s sister-wife, he grew harsh and distant to both her and the babe.           When Níniel reached ten years of age, Andreth had grown weary of her husband’s temper and demands for a son. She fled to Belfalas with all three of her daughters, never to return to Minas Tirith. Furious, Túrin demanded that his father, the current Steward, change the law of Gondor to allow him to take another wife while the first still lived, but Húrin was unmoved by his son’s rash demands. It was not until Túrin inherited the Stewardship that he was able to take action himself, altering the law and taking to wife Meldis, the young daughter of one of his friends among the Council of Gondor.           Within a year, Meldis bore Túrin his son and heir, named Hador for his mighty ancestor’s legacy. Túrin doted on his wife and son for the remainder of his days, though he never reconciled with Andreth or his daughters, and did not mourn when Andreth died a few years before his own demise. Túrin lived only 113 years, a brief lifespan for one of the Dúnedain at that time, and in after years as the line of Stewards declined it was whispered that perhaps his cruelty began the waning of his House.

          Húrin I was the son of Belegorn, and was the fifth Ruling Steward of Gondor. He often accompanied his father on hunting trips, though he was less interested in catching game than he was in taking joy in the art of bowcraft. Húrin wed the scholar Beril, whose studies focused on the great heroes of the First Age.           Invested in the poetry of First Age names, Beril pushed to name their children after the children of Húrin Thalion for whom her husband was named (though he was also named in honor of Húrin of Emyn Arnen, founder of the House of Húrin). Thus their eldest daughter was called Urwen, after Urwen Lalaith, and her sister was known as Niënor, after Niënor Níniel.           Unlike the family of the Húrin of the First Age, Steward Húrin’s children endured no dreadful curses nor tragic fates. Urwen was a skilled artist whose work was greatly admired by the upper class of Minas Tirith, though she was dreadfully shy and presented all her work anonymously. Not until after her death did the city learn that the Steward’s daughter was the gifted artist they so admired. In defiance of her name, Niënor was a joyful woman who found delight in gardening. She disliked her dour name and instead called herself Lalaith, the nick-name of the first Urwen, meaning “laughter.” Though she had many sweethearts throughout her life, she never married, perhaps out of a desire to not tempt fate.           Húrin’s only son was Túrin, a proud young man who rebelled against his mother’s historical teachings and scorned his father’s mild temper. He would name his own children after relatives and friends of his famous namesake, Túrin Turambar, but did so without regard to the historical implications.

Children of House Telcontar - Ataniel
Ataniel was the second child of King Elessar and Queen Arwen. She was not unlike her twin Eldarion in appearance, for like him she inherited much of her mother's beauty, but also her father's courage.
Unlike Eldarion, Ataniel found little pleasure in spending her time in the library and had great difficulty with her studies due to her lack of concentration. Instead, she preferred to spend her time riding horses, listening to travellers' stories and tending to wounded animals.
In young adulthood she married her childhood friend Elfwine, the crown prince and future king of Rohan, for they shared the same love for nature and all living beings. Their reign was long and prosperous for the kingdom of Rohan and they were remembered fondly by their people. Together they had three children, two sons and a daughter.
Even though she was of Half elven descent Ataniel did not live much longer than her husband, for she withered away in grief upon his death. They were buried together and on their barrow the Simbelmynë blossomed thickly and brilliantly white almost all year round.

          Mardil Voronwë was the son of Vorondil, and became the first Ruling Steward of Gondor. He served as the third and last Steward to Eärnil II and after him his son Eärnur. Upon Eärnur’s inheritance, the Witch-king of Minas Morgul, whom Eärnur had faced in the North, challenged him again to single combat. Eärnur, rash and humiliated by his failure in their first encounter, was eager to answer, but all his counselors clearly saw that it was a trap.           It took the combined persuasion of Eärnur’s mother, lover, and his Steward to convince him not to go at that time, but after his lover was slain in a skirmish, not even the wisdom of Mardil could prevent him from answering the Witch-king’s third challenge. Eärnur left his crown upon the lap of his father in the Houses of the Dead, where it would remain until Steward Faramir would pass it to King Elessar nearly a thousand years later. Eärnur rode past the gates of Minas Morgul with a small escort of loyal knights, never to be seen again.           As his fate was for a time uncertain and Eärnur had named no heir, nor were there any obvious lords of royal descent to step forth and make their claim, no new King was selected. Thus, with a heavy heart, Mardil took up the leadership of Gondor, first of the Ruling Stewards. He began his rule with the promise to lead “until the King returns,” at first with the hope that Eärnur would ride back to Minas Tirith in glory, and later as but a formality.           Mardil ruled Gondor with wisdom and patience during the time known as the Watchful Peace, earning the epithet Voronwë, “the Steadfast.” He was an even-tempered and practical man who paid close attention to even the minutiae of bureaucracy. His wife Anoriel was likewise a fastidious scholar, and it was at her suggestion that Mardil established a Stewards’ Reckoning of time, inserting two leap-days in an effort to maintain a coherent calendar.           The son of Mardil Voronwë and Anoriel was Eradan, first of the Stewards to be named in Sindarin save for those who had taken names from great heroes of the First Age. Eradan was a solitary man who preferred quietude and the company of books. His wife, Gilwen, was of a similar mind, and together they agreed to leave one another alone as soon as their only son Herion came of age.           Unlike his father, Herion was a lively and boisterous man eager to enter the social circles of Gondor. He wed the dancer Cadwareth, a beautiful woman whom he adored despite her own inconstant affections. Their son Belegorn was a hunter like his ancestor Vorondil, and though he never brought down a beast so mighty as the Kine of Araw, he carried the Horn of Gondor with a reverence matched only by his love for his wife Lossendil, a healer-woman of Ithilien he met on his travels.

I miss thinking about Les Mis 24/7 ) -:
Like yeah, I carry it with me no matter where I am, and I think about the characters a lot when specific things happen. Les Mis made me who I am and so it will always be with me. But it feels like it's been so long since I've thought about it in depth and at length.
I was hyperfixating on the witcher for A While™ and now I'm hyperfixating on lotr. And don't get me wrong, I love lotr /always have/ and It's definitely right up there with LM, so I'm having a lot of fun.
But I miss my special interest and I miss talking to people who also like LM!
