it was about time to make smth like this xoxo.
(via Cute Overload :D)
I won’t stop trying to keep the blog alive.
Let me tell u a thing about these two, and why they should be the pairing to end all pairings.
Okay so we all know who Elrond is and why he is amazing and one of the most important elves ever (I mean he has one of the Rings of Power fgs JUST AS AN EXAMPLE) but few people seem to know about Celebrian, but the key thing about her heritage is that she is the daughter of Galadriel and Celeborn. das fuckin right shes like princess of the world and marries elrond
BUT IT’S NOT DAT SIMPLE.
So elves generally make a life bond when they are newly of age, so they’re normally like, 100 (their majority age is 60). Are Elrond and Celebrian this age when they fall in love? ARE THEY HELL.
Elrond was around 1,800 years old when they met, and Celebrian was around 1,300.
This is what Tolkien wrote of their first meeting In Rivendell; ”It was then that Elrond first saw Celebrían, and loved her, though he said nothing of it.”
OKAY DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OF A BIG DEAL THIS IS? When elves fall in love, it’s not in the way that humans do - they love completely consumes the soul, and they only fall in love once - this love, although it evolves, never fades. If an elf’s mate dies, they usually die of a broken heart, even if they have children, a family. like um WOW.
Also remember that Elrond and Celebrian respectively hadn’t fallen in love yet. NO ONE HAD EVEN CAUGHT THEIR EYES UNTIL THEY MET AND BOOM FELL IN LOVE. Well, we don’t actually know if Celebrian felt the same way as Elrond right away, but that doesn’t matter because she falls in love with him too.
BUT THAT’S STILL NOT WHERE IT ENDS. Elrond falls in love with her in around the Second Age 1700, but they don’t get married until Third Age 109. That’s around 1,700 years Elrond loves her WITHOUT EVEN ACTING UPON IT. Bearing in mind this totally soul-consuming love that elves are capable of, THIS IS ACTUALLY INCREDIBLE. Like, wow.
Then they have three kids, one of which being Arwen aka super elf princess who kinda rules Middle Earth by the end of things, so it’s kind of safe to assume she had a powerful female role model in her life AKA CELEBRIAN MY BABY.
BUT THEN OH MY GOD IM GONNA HAVE TO DO THIS QUICKLY BECAUSE THIS REALLY HURTS Celebrian gets attacked by Orcs on her way to visit mum and dad in Lothlorien in Third Age 2509 and don’t even talk to me because they torture her and humiliate her (we can infer from that that she was raped, and bear in mind that sex equals marriage to elves because it is that sacred, this makes it even more horrific) and basically she is so depressed and desperate and unhappy after it she sails for Valinor a year later
BUT ELROND CANT GO WITH HER BECAUSE HE GOTTA STAY IN RIVENDELL AND DO SHIT THERE FOR A WHILE.
Basically their love is so super strong and eternal and devoted and just LOOK AT ELROND AND THE DESCRIPTIONS OF HIM IN THE BOOKS AND HIS RELUCTANCE TO LET ARWEN STAY IN THE FILMS AND he has lost so much already i mean he has had his family stolen from him and Celebrian, his heart and his soul, is no longer with him and just
i am so done
FOUR FOR YOU ELLIE
