As little might be thought by Gold-Seven As little might be thought by Gold-Seven
"For Maglor took pity upon Elros and Elrond, and he cherished them, and love grew after between them, as little might be thought; but Maglor's heart was sick and weary with the burden of the dreadful oath."

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

Give Maedhros a hug, will you? I think he needs one. :(

Scene requested by , although done with less care than I had wanted to - I apologize! I tried a technique (or rather, an idea - I made it a bit differently) of to make it "parchmenty". I guess I should have gone either for clean lineart OR for sketchy - the middle, we know now, is sloppy. :D

Pencil and Photoshop.

Hiya, normally I'd be okay with it, but this image is so old and full of flaws that I don't really want it circulated. I hope you understand!

*happy sigh* Maglor... "...Maglor's heart was sick and weary with the burden of the dreadful oath..."
I do so love this particular scene and idea from the Silmarillion. He always seemed to me more Teleri than any of the other Noldor, and, that was ever to my liking. Also, I approve mightily of his taking care of Elrond and Elros.
