Lotr_Silm: Brothers by Hedonistbyheart Lotr_Silm: Brothers by Hedonistbyheart
This is inspired by a fanfic I've recently read, but unfortunately I've forgotten the name of it^^;

Elrond and Elros have just been captured and because they are tiny and terrified, Maglor has sung them to sleep, keeping them close as he himself nods off, near a warming fire. While they sleep, Maedhros keeps vigil, brushing a strand of hair from his only remaining brother's face.

I always waver between crying a river or melting with the amount of fluff in this part of the story. It's a pity it's only a couple of sentences long in the Silmarillion:XD:

arjgihbdfbjfbg I'm literally going to cry!!! Seriously, my heart clenched and my eyes got teary.

I agree with you, it's a pity that it's such a short part of the book. Everything is like that anyways, which is sad cuz I would have loved to go into depth with the characters, but it's more like a history account.

aww, don't cry! though I'm glad it affected you:)

it IS like a history-book, I would have loved more detail!

Yeah, it's always good when a picture or drawing affects the viewer and created emotion.

*sigh* it will only stay as a wish

The fanfic wasn't Four Hands Around by French Pony, was it?
Hedonistbyheart Featured By Owner Nov 18, 2013
No, I like that one a lot and I have read it before, but it was a fic that began at the sacking of Sirion, I'm pretty sure^^

sniff! I need to find that fanfic! I love the red tones here!
Hedonistbyheart Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2013

The heartache! Elrond and Elros are so alone and the remaining Feanorians have just lost their younger brother(s).
Hedonistbyheart Featured By Owner May 22, 2013
Exactly! It must have been a bit of a slap in the face to find those two, right after they lost their own twin(s):/ Maglor loved them regardless though:)
