Feature Forging for Protection and Defense by Larner

Rated PG13
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

He studied in Tirion in the forges of Mahtan and Lord Aule himself, but followed his chosen lord to Middle Earth to find his destiny.  Perhaps his most memorable achievements were the forging of a particular suit of armor, and his advice, supervision, and participation in the reforging of a famous blade created by a greater smith than he was himself.  Was it worthwhile?  Can he ever look to accept forgiveness for his part in the rebellion of the Noldor?

Inspired by the armor worn by Elendil and Aragorn in the PJ LOTR movies.  Beta by Fiondil and Soledad, with my profound thanks.

Lending a Hand - Redux by Erulisse

Rated G
[Reviews - 0]
Table of Contents

 

I wanted this to be sharper and to explain Isildur's feelings towards the elves with greater clarity.  So I refined this a bit more.  This is what I came up with. 

 

What thoughts are passing through Isildur’s mind after his defeat of Sauron?  A bit of gallows humor in response to the prompt “lend”.

Close to the downfall of Númenor Amandil puts out a request. But what is Isildur's take on it?

"But when Amandil heard rumour of the evil purpose of Sauron he was grieved to the heart, knowing that in the end Sauron would surely have his will. Then he spoke to Elendil and the sons of Elendil, recalling the tale of the Trees of Valinor; and Isildur said no word, but went out by night and did a deed for which he was afterwards renowned. "
