Who do you consider the strongest of the two races?
Personaly Fingolfin would be the strongest Elf while Turin Turambar i would consider to be the strongest Man
So it crossed my mind the other day, and tbh Google didn't tell me much when I asked:
Can Elves rap verses?
I wouldn't be surprised if Men did, Elves are my main focus right now.
This video discusses some of the Elves we may see, with a couple of news updates and a small discussion on the more controversial side of the show at the end. https://youtu.be/BXqkB9YfZvM
So I was inspired byhttps://archiveofourown.org/works/21874765/chapters/52211158
So here are my ideas at first I had an idea where Maedhros didn't die but the fire pit was a portal to our world where he had a son that was rather quickly abandoned because A
I was unsure what time period to send him there and how that would work with his adjustment also I didn't want to run the risk of writing a Mary sue
then I had an idea where Artanis's son went missing and was never heard from again until his daughter Emily shows up in middle earth and possibly with a sibling or two I do like this idea and plan on keeping it as either it's own AU or intertwining it into the one I am about to get to I really want to mix them but I don't think it will work if I writ anything with them together then in would be an AU within an AU one shot most likely the one about Emily and Co. would have more to do with the greenwood elves at this point heavily featuring some weighty elemental magic as well as a child (or two) of Morgoth by rape or deceit of taking a fair form and one or more children of other Ainur
now to the big one the main most fragments floating around in my head .......
It's a lot like the first link except I gave Amras a daughter her working name is Reina
it centers around Glorfindel and Feanaro being sent back for a number of reasons for Feanaro it factors in for him being able see wife and sons again Reina's Mother is Avarin so I mean to make her have an affinity for nature I actually have this super cute idea inspired my the Moonlace flowers from PJO where her mother and other Avari hybridize plants and her Mom made these flowers that only bloom at night and they glow blue there is more to it but what do you guys think of these ideas? what should I publish? let me know?
I always wondered about the line in the Hobbit movies where Legolas confesses that his mother died at Gundabad in some sort of war waged there, but I couldn’t recall any reason for the wood elves to do so. Was that line simply not book!canon compliant or am I missing something...?
In LOTR: The Two Towers (2002), the elves march silently when they get to Helms Deep. All other armies make loud footsteps. This is because elves in Tolkien’s middle-earth were light on their feet. Another example is when Legolas walks atop the snow in Fellowship of the Ring (2001)
For the longest time, I've only seen the movies bc the books were hard for me to understand untill recently. So if my understanding is correct, weren't the elves that rebeled against the Valor exiled to middle earth? I have trouble understanding somenof the history. I already read the wiki for but I got more confused.
I hate to rain on the parade of Tolkein purists, but since everything about the Second Age in the books reads more like a history or myth book, there's a ton of blank spaces to be filled in. That means that much of the cast is probably going to be made up of original characters not found in Tolkein's books who have stories of their own, which juxtapose with what is found in his books.
For example, there could be a soldier of The King's Men who while he believes that Men are better off independently, distrusts Sauron. And is also lucky enough to be on guard duty at the docks while Ar Pharazon is sailing to the undying lands. Thus saving him from Numenor's destruction.
Or a female Eregian Elf who suspects something is out of place when Sauron offers to help Celebrimbor make the rings. And it's thanks to her, that the Elven Lords learn of Sauron's lies, and thus save themselves from his corruption.
Regardless, those who survive the early seasons and to the series finale should be in the Last Alliance, where the tension won't be who will win or lose, but who will live and who will die. If I was the writer, I'd call these original characters "The Forgotten Heroes", because their stories were never written, and thus, history forgot they even existed... until now.
What do you think about how elves/dwarves/dragons or other are portrayed in LoTR compared to other fantasy series?
Also, have you got any reasonable crossover theories?
You can also just mention any similarities between any characters from any books/films or real people.
