Fëanorians being merry elves making music to the stars. I like to think that this kind of thing happened at some point, but with all things considered, I’m not sure. Maybe it’s a huge AU.
From left to right:  Fëanor, Nerdanel, Amod, Amras, Curufin (with baby Celebrimbor), Celegorm, Caranthir, Maedhros and Maglor.
PS: curufinwefeanaro, it’s the family portrait for ‘House of Fëanor’ project. I figured I could combo it with a bingo card fill. *shrugs*

Treebeard’s song of Beleriand, sung by Christopher Lee & the Tolkien Ensemble

I would like to open the ISFAB week in my blog with my favorite LOTR song: the one were Treebeard reminiscences :D

I love this song a lot. It describes Treebeard taking a tour around Beleriand while appreciating the effect the seasons have upon the land. I made a little map below to help everyone understand:

The song begins with Treebeard witnessing spring in Nan-Tathren, the willow forest that is very loved by Voronwë, and where Gondolin’s refugees live for a while after the fall, before they move on to Sirion.

The next stop is Ossiriand during summer, and the trees he brings up here are the elm trees. Since Treebeard specifically mentions the seven rivers of Ossir, I assume he saw all of them during his travels! IDK how he managed to cross them; he had to, at some point, to reach Fangorn, but that’s for later. Now he’s going north.

Then, Treebeard visits Neldoreth in autumn. That forest is inside the Girdle, another proof that Treebeard could enter it (the other proof being his friendship with Celeborn), and this is the sort of info that fuels many assumptions I make about how the Girdle works for trees and ents and animals aaand i won’t babble about this now. Back on track: that is the forest where Beren and Lúthien meet for the very first time. The trees of Neldoreth are the beeches.

Finally the song stops with Treebeard climbing the highlands of Dorthonion in winter. There he mentions the pine trees after which the land gets its name. 

That is all we get about his wanderings in the First Age: next thing we know Treebeard aludes to the drowning of Beleriand, and to the forest where he now walks.

This is another map I did showing how big Fangorn forest used to be, and, on the right corner, its size during the events of The Lord of the Rings:

so much was lost ://// all the ents within are likely First Age survivors, and even the forest too, in a sense.

Here is a link to the map put together!
