Let the havens burn by Sirielle Let the havens burn by Sirielle
© Karolina Węgrzyn

Maedhros son of Fëanor arriving at the Havens of Sirion:

"Now when first the tidings came to Maedhros that Elwing yet lived, and dwelt in possession of the Silmaril by the mouths of Sirion, he repenting of the deeds in Doriath withheld his hand. But in time the knowledge of their oath unfulfilled returned to torment him and his brothers, and gathering from their wandering hunting-paths they sent messages to the Havens of friendship and yet of stern demand. Then Elwing and the people of Sirion would not yield the jewel which Beren had won and Lúthien had worn, and for which Dior the fair was slain; and least of all while Eärendil their lord was on the sea, for it seemed to them that in the Silmaril lay the healing and the blessing that had come upon their houses and their ships. And so there came to pass the last and cruellest of the slayings of Elf by Elf; and that was the third of the great wrongs achieved by the accursed oath."

– J.R.R. Tolkien,The Silmarillion, Chapter 24: "Of the Voyage of Eärendil and the War of Wrath"

Edit.

I'm glad you think so, thank you :thanks: They should be looking dangerous, though desperate and sorrowful would be fitting as well. But here... Time for mourning will come later, first what must be done - must be done.

Driven by the Oath and consciously doing the wrong thing once again. Their stories are quite tragic :(

Dawno mnie u Ciebie nie było i widzę, że mam sporo do nadrobienia.

Rewelacja, bardzo podoba mi się odblask płomieni na zbroi, tarczy i mieczu.

Nope, one hand, two arms and a shield attached to the right one.
