Afterwards, the Valar relocated to the continent of Aman where they created the Two Trees - the only light in the whole world at that time. Middle-earth was left in darkness, and the living things that survived were put into a great sleep by Yavanna until the rise of the Sun and the Moon many thousands of years later.
Yavanna Kementári was a Vala and was responsible for the growth of all the fruits and growing things of the world of Arda. She was also called Palúrien and was the wife of Aulë. She resided in the Pastures of Yavanna, in the south of Valinor.

The rider’s cloak streamed behind him, and his hood was thrown back; his golden hair flowed shimmering in the wind of his speed. To Frodo it appeared that a white light was shining through the form and raiment of the rider, as if through a thin veil.

"[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.

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.'
