A family dinnerFinwë regulary hosted dinners to which he invited all his sons and their families. It was his hope that by being forced into the same room and spending an evening in a civilised manner, his large family could be kept from splitting apart due to the tensions within. But it was never very easy to have so many children running around the house and their fathers arguing over any trivial detail they could possibly think of, and Finwë knew this so he spent the whole day preparing for the occasion. It was as if getting ready for one family-dinner was ten times more troublesome than leading the whole clan of Noldor from Cuiviénen to Valinor.A family dinner by ~Gwenniel
As the time for the arrival of the guests drew nearer, he twisted his hands and a frown of worry lined his brow, and he looked at me questioningly. “No, you have not forgotten anything, dear,” I said reassuringly.
“I do hope so, Indis,” he said with a small smile. “But remember last time when there were one to
KementariGold and silver are the lightsKementari by ~MariaB9
In your eyes,
Graceful are your steps
And your raiment ever green.
Wonder and beauty unseen
You put in everything that grows,
From the fairest leaf
To the merriest flower.
Blessed we all are
O, Queen of the Earth,
For through you we have
Fair trees and fields,
Loveliness before our eyes.
How many hurts your heart knew,
None can tell but only you
When the Great Light was gone
And there you sang alone.
Slow do the waters flow
Through lands and hills,
All enriched with the fairness you give
A, Yavanna Kementari!
| You've stumbled upon Tolkien-Voronwë - what are we? |
Voronwë is a word of Quenya. Besides it being a name of a Noldo Elf, it also means loyalty.
As long as you're a Tolkien fan and your profile contains nothing generally offensive, you're welcome to join. As long as you respect the group rules and realize not to (repeatedly) submit any material outside them, you can still have it in your own gallery.
If you're only curious, you're always welcome to add us to your watch.
The main purpose of this DA group is collecting deviations that are as canon or loyal as possible to Eä - the original rich vision, lore and fantasy universe of J.R.R. Tolkien. Any theme from Arda (the world of the universe of Eä) is welcome.
Many styles of arts and crafts are allowed, but the style preference of art is mainly realistic or something fit for a storybook. What is especially welcome is originality - we encourage you to show your original products of imagination which came from reading the books. You can also post your own original fan made characters.
Remember that the group is book based. You can submit deviations about characters which bear the resemblance with the depictions in other Tolkien media, but if you do, use the book scenes rather than the possibly rewritten scenes in that media.
Content that we accept
The Lord of the Rings (LotR)
Bilbo's Last Song
Unfinished Tales (UT)
History of Middle-Earth (HoME)
Children of Húrin (CoH)
Other Tolkien material
The "hidden moments" that happened
Content that we do not accept
Modernizing, save in Humor folder. The events of Eä locate in epic ancient times in an alternate history - try to keep the atmosphere.
World crossovers between Eä and another universe, save in Humor folder.
Gary Stus and Mary Sues, save in Humor folder. Keep the characters realistic with themselves and the others.
Original characters that are too closely related to the canon characters. Tolkien designed quite detailed family trees for the heroes and heroines. You may understand why such characters might not fit too well in the orientation of this group.
Non-canon pairings of Tolkien's original characters - this also includes slash, mpreg and fpreg. Canon pairings are allowed, but also remember which characters Tolkien meant as bachelors.
Featured - This folder can be edited and submitted to by the appointed moderators only who are granted a permission to edit the gallery as a whole. Especially wonderful deviations go to Featured, and a random deviation is being displayed as a large thumbnail each time someone visits the page.
Beginners - This folder is for deviations of beginning artists who wish to read some advice, tutorials and constructive criticism on the way to evolving to their own peak as artists. We all started from somewhere, so if you want these things, Beginners folder is the way to go. If you wish to your deviation moved forward from Beginners to some other folder, send us a note.
Ainur - For the Ainur as known from The Silmarillion. All the mainly Vala and Maia themed deviations go here, and as the Five Wizards (Saruman, Gandalf, Radagast, Alatar and Pallando) are Maiar, their place is also in this folder.
Misc and Other - Deviations about interracial groups and things that don't belong in any other category.
UT and HoME - Silmarillion is a grand source of Tolkien's lore, but Christopher Tolkien also published more of his father's text in Unfinished Tales and History of Middle-Earth series (which the folder name stands for). While some parts of the lore correlate with Tolkien's main books, some lore in them is either peripheral or abandoned. This folder accepts the deviations from them, was the lore open for debate or not.
Tolkien's Other Work - This folder is for the art based on other works of JRR Tolkien outside Middle-Earth, academic or non-academic (such as translation of Beowulf).
Journals - Do you have WIP to talk about or something other Tolkien related to promote? This is where your blogs and journals are allowed. For members only.
Humor and Memes - This folder allows modern references, world crossovers and Mary Sues as a stock for good laughs (though non-canon pairing and slash are still not allowed).
If you accept these rules, you might feel at home with us!
