Absence Update

As you may or may not have noticed, I haven’t been around very much lately. That’s because I’ve been busy working on a competition piece, which today won first place in it’s category. Yay!

So now that that’s over, I should have more free time to get back to gif making. I’ve got a long list of requests from months back written up on a Word doc (so don’t think I’ve forgotten any of you!)

for within the hollow crown

That rounds the mortal temples of a King

Keeps Death his court and there the antic sits,

Scoffing his state and grinning at his pomp,

Allowing him a breath, a little scene,

To monarchize, be feared and kill with looks […]

[Celebrimbor] set it within a great brooch of silver in the likeness of an eagle rising upon outspread wings. Wielding the Elessar all things grew fair about Galadriel, until the coming of the Shadow to the Forest. But afterwards when Nenya, chief of the Three, was sent to her by Celebrimbor, she needed it (as she thought) no more, and she gave it to Celebrían her daughter, and so it came to Arwen and to Aragorn who was called Elessar.
(Unfinished Tales, The History of Galadriel and Celeborn and of Amroth King of Lorien; Elessar)
'Yet maybe this will lighten your heart,' said Galadriel; 'for it was left in my care to be given to you, should you pass through this land.'Then she lifted from her lap a great stone of a clear green, set in a silver brooch that was wrought in the likeness of an eagle with outspread wings; and as she held it up the gem flashed like the sun shining through the leaves of spring. 'This stone I gave to Celebrían my daughter, and she to hers; and now it comes to you as a token of hope. In this hour take the name that was foretold for you, Elessar, the Elfstone of the House of Elendil!
