Oh, if you are into names, you've an advantage! They all have meanings. Fingolfin means 'Wise Finwe' (after his dad) and Finarfin is 'Noble Finwe'. Fingon, who rescued Maedhros is 'commander'. But I'm afraid there are 2 Elvish languages, which does confuse things a bit :-D

With the Fins, try ignoring the first part of the name & just read the second bit? If it's the style that is getting to you, I wrote a brief version of the Silm as told by Bilbo Baggins to baby Sam Gamgee, it's here if you think it might help :

Bit of a break from Tolkien: I painted some rowing their way up the in 997AD, on their way to burn down abbey.

“A legendary hero almost always has a basis in a real person, around whom bits of legend and bits of other people's stories gather and collect, rather like amber collecting little bits of paper.” (Rosemary Sutcliff)

Also, who remembers the proper, polite answer when the Eagles say: “Farewell!” they cried, “wherever you fare, till your eyries receive you at the journey’s end!” That is the polite thing to say among eagles. (Art by )

Fëanor is inspiring, iconic, magnificent, historic, cutting edge... flawed. And the personal enemy of a dark god who deliberately worked to bring about his downfall. AND one of Tolkien's many partial self-inserts. Fight me.

"And so they stood on the walls of the City of Gondor, and a great wind rose and blew, and their hair, raven and golden, streamed out mingling in the air. "

I've been drawing a lot of elves lately. I consider it my elf-expression. So here are watercolor sketches: one of Fëanor, and one of Fingon (feat. Maedhros).

ISTR they have used some non-LOTR placenames on the maps, so that does look hopeful for a license for UT? Fingers crossed!

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE: a fabulous Celebrimbor worthy of Feanor himself, a heroic Elrond coming too late to his rescue, and a truly epic Gil-galad. Also I will pay extra for Galadriel at war and a chance to visit Moria at its greatest.

It's not my server, it belongs to but my understanding is that all Silmarillion fan writers, artists & fanfic readers are welcome. It's a friendly place.
