Silmarillion: Upon Thangorodrim by LadyElleth Silmarillion: Upon Thangorodrim by LadyElleth
(Please check the fullview. The preview is quite underwhelming.)

Fingon, moments before the fateful moment of making the song that will help him discover his cousin Maedhros upon Thangorodrim.

Therefore he [Fingon] dared a deed which is justly renowned among the feats of the Princes of the Noldor: alone, and without the counsel of any, he set forth in search of Maedhros; and aided by the very darkness that Morgoth had made he came unseen into the fastness of his foes. High upon the shoulders of Thangorodrim he climbed, and looked in despair upon the desolation of the land; but no passage or crevice could he find through which he might come within Morgoth's stronghold.

(J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion, Chapter XIII: Of the Return of the Noldor)

Superb. I've said it previously. This is true of all I see of your work. I _love_ it. You are really renewing the way we are (all too) accustomed to imagining these narrations..

Oh my god wow! The sheer size of the place! And Maedhros looks like a ragdoll, this is perfect! Really puts Fingon's amazing rescue into perspective :)

Call me weird, but the mention of the ragdoll made me very happy, because that fits so exactly into my mental image. And you're very right about perspective. :) Thanks for the lovely comment!

Zounds! The tininess of them amidst all that foreboding rock is really effective.

I meant forbidding rock. Forbidding. >_<
