    Anonymous asked: hi! i am rereading the silmarillion after many years and i’m having some trouble with the noldorin royal family’s relationships. do you know a chart that shows who was on especially good terms with who and who disliked who? or if it interests you can you talk a bit about it? i love your blog!”

    Oh boy, Anon, you said the magic words: Noldor and chart. So have four! First a family tree to help keep the relations straight. Then a chart showing members of the family described by Tolkien as being on especially friendly or unfriendly terms. Then a chart showing everyone’s reaction to the Oath of Feanor, and finally one showing the lineup for the departure of the Noldor from Valinor.

    If you’d like to read more about the Noldorin royal family and their complicated relationships, I’ve got plenty more posts for you:

  • Finwean Infographic
  • Elvish Cross-Cultural Relations: The Noldor
  • Feanor’s Lisp
  • Using “Finwe” as a Prefix
  • On Feanor’s Abandonment of Fingolfin
  • Maedhros and Fingon’s Gift Exchange
  • Galadriel’s Hair
  • Aredhel: White Lady of the Noldor
  • Earwen and Anaire
  • Galadriel’s Part in the Exile of the Noldor
  • HIGH KINGS OF THE NOLDOR RATED ON HOW FIRE-RELATED THEIR DEATHS WERE

    Finwë: boring, fireless stab wounds - 0/10

    Fëanor: SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, HELL YEAH - 100000/10

    Maedhros: abdicated, but later jumped into a CHASM OF FIRE, NICE - 100/10

    Fingolfin: single combat with Morgoth during the "Battle of Sudden Flame," squashed by his giant foot, fire not specified but definitely implied - 7/10 for sheer badassery

    Fingon: killed by Balrogs, "a white flame sprang up from the helm of Fingon as it was cloven" - 10/10

    Turgon: his tower fell on him, dragons and balrogs were involved so fire probably was too, still not as cool as everyone else - 5/10

    Gil-galad: single combat with Sauron, "killed by the heat of Sauron's hand," fire probably involved - 7/10

    ~BONUS~

    Finarfin: didn't die, the fucking coward!!!! -10/10
