Maedhros and Maglor, after Maedhros' rescue from Thangorodrim. Maedhros is slowly coming to terms with being alive, and being maimed.

From J. R. R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion, though this scene in question was sparked by my own fanfic: [link]

Why the sword? FŽanoreans don't send get well cards. They send get well swords.

Painted with Dr Martin's Liquid watercolours on Canson paper. Look! I can do green now! Even turquoise!

I can only imagine Maglor love and devotion for his big brother, can I just add an undertone of guilt?

This is beautiful.  I love the brotherly care and love so obvious between them.  And seriously, "Fëanoreans don't send get well cards. They send get well swords."  Literally perfect. XD

I'm surprised you even had to put that little 'nothing sexual' sticker on the bottom. Your work is fantastic and you clearly know your material on the story, and I'm sure even the immature kids looking at this know it's pure friendship. Also we need more men with long hair in the world. I'm going to go have a discussion with my husband.

Argh. I'll never understand what goes on in those people. "Poor Maedhros has been through so much! So the first thing he'll want is sex with every male relative this side of the Sea!" :iconfacepalmplz:

Funny how everything simply *has* to be all rainbows and butterflies. Somehow, if you don't like slash, you're homophobic and have a closed mind. In the same way, if you don't like 'The Hobbit' film or Tauriel, you are somehow a stuck-up snob who can do nothing but criticize things. Sigh. Why can't people just dislike things without being labelled narrow-minded old men?

End rant.

This is so sad and beautiful. I love the relationship of the two brothers (and yeah, no, shipping them is all kinds of wrong) and your artwork is just so lovely.
