"[Fëanor] was the eldest of Finwe’s sons and the only child of his first wife Miriel. She was a Noldorin Elda of slender and graceful form, and of gentle disposition, though as was later discovered in matters far more grave, she could show an ultimate obstinacy that counsel or command would only make more obdurate. She had a beautiful voice and a delicate and clear enunciation, though she spoke swiftly and took pride in this skill. Her chief talent, however, was a marvellous dexterity of hand. This she employed in embroidery, which though achieved in what even the Eldar thought a speed of haste was finer and more intricate than any that had before been seen. She was therefore called Perinde (Needlewoman) - a name which she had indeed already been given as a ‘mother-name’.”
I don’t know which Luthien edit you’re referring to, but I’m afraid I haven’t made any Luthien ones. If it was one we posted, you will have to wait for my co-admin to come back, and if it was one we reblogged, you can ask the original poster :)
The faceclaim I used in the most recent Andreth edit was Jade Willoughby :)
'The Wise among Men say: “We were not made for death, nor born ever to die. Death was imposed upon us.” And behold! the fear of it is with us always, and we flee from it for ever as the hart from the hunter. …”'
'None could have done this to you save the One. Therefore I say to you, Andreth, what did ye do, ye Men, long ago in the dark? How did ye anger Eru? For otherwise all your tales are but dark dreams devised in a Dark Mind.'
- Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth
Hi there! I’m the co-mod that was mentioned, haha. We did get your message, and I’m slowly returning from my hiatus, however James (who you were speaking to before today) is away until Wednesday. I can tell you though that we have begun to discuss some of the feedback you gave, and we haven’t forgotten about you. It’s just been a busy few weeks for both of us.
So, if you see me around posting edits or reblogging from the tag without having gotten back to you, don’t worry! We’re very interested in changing a few things so you’ll definitely know when we’ve finished discussing.
Neither of us are on this blog 24/7, nor check the tags all the time. I think it’s natural that we miss some edits. If anyone wants their art reblogged here, they can submit the link to us. Which is something I already said in my previous answer.
You’re right, we don’t reblog fanfiction, but it isn’t exactly a firm decision or anything. When we first started this blog, we had queued many edits first (as many as we could find, that is) and added some meta. We were thinking of basics at first, and never branched out. It seems to have developed a pattern.
My co-admin is currently on a hiatus so I don’t feel comfortable making decisions by myself. But if people would like to see fanfiction featured here, or would like to suggest any other changes, please let us know and I’ll discuss it with my co-admin as soon as she returns.
No, you did not sound rude at all, don’t worry about it. But I’m sorry if our reblogs somehow bother you?
Nerdanel, unlike her husband, was of a peaceful nature and sought to moderate his fiery temper and pride with wisdom. For a time, she was the only one able to influence him.
Nerdanel, also known as Nerdanel the Wise, was the daughter of the Ñoldorin smith Mahtan and the wife of Fëanor.
After marrying Fëanor, Nerdanel bore him seven sons: Maedhros, Maglor, Celegorm, Caranthir, Curufin, Amrod and Amras.
