This is for both the SWG March 2017 Strength & Beauty Challenge, and for Day 1 of Fëanorian Week: Maedhros.
"Real strength never impairs beauty or harmony, but it often bestows it; and in everything imposingly beautiful, strength has much to do with the magic."
~Herman Melville, Moby DickAnd the prompt for the latter was: Adjusting/Coping and Beauty.
I ended up making some artwork of Maedhros, recovered post-Thangorodrim, and wrote a little drabble to accompany it, as kind of a prologue to the picture. I'll be honest that this is my first foray into fanworks for any of the Fëanorians - I've never drawn or written Maedhros before (or Fingon for that matter, who also appears), and I'm still kind of feeling my way through the characters and their relationship (because I totally ship them).
Genre: Gen/Character Study
Characters: Maedhros, Fingon
