If in days to come you remember the words of Melian, it will be for your good:
fear both the heat and the cold of your heart, and strive for patience, if you can.
- Túrin in Doriath


Fëanor This user loves Fëanor over any other elf.




Sons of Fëanor This user supports the Sons of Fëanor as the rightful owners of the Silmarils.





Túrin This user believes Túrin was the better cousin.






Then suddenly the sea-longing took him as though a great hand had been laid on his throat,
and his heart hammered, and his breath was stopped.
- Aldarion and Erendis



He chanted a song of wizardry,
Of piercing, opening, of treachery,
Revealing, uncovering, betraying.
Then sudden Felagund there swaying
Sang in answer a song of staying,
Resisting, battling against power,
Of secrets kept, strength like a tower,
And trust unbroken, freedom, escape;
Of changing and of shifting shape,
Of snares eluded, broken traps,
The prison opening, the chain that snaps,
Backwards and forwards swayed their song.
Reeling and foundering, as ever more strong
The chanting swelled, Felagund fought,
And all the magic and might he brought,
Of Elvenesse into his words.
Softly in the gloom they heard the birds
Singing afar in Nargothond,
The sighing of the sea beyond,
Beyond the western world, on sand,
On sand of pearls in Elvenland.
Then the gloom gathered; darkness growing
In Valinor, the red blood flowing
Beside the sea, where the Noldor slew
The Foamriders, and stealing drew
Their white ships with their white sails
From lamplit havens. The wind wails,
The wolf howls. The ravens flee.
The ice mutters in the mouths of the sea.
The captives sad in Angband mourn,
Thunder rumbles, the fires burn-
And Finrod fell before the throne.




Thus fell the High King of the Noldor; and they beat him into the dust with their maces,
and his banner, blue and silver, they trod into the mire of his blood.
- Nirnaeth Arnoediad
