Elrond and Celebrian by rysowAnia Elrond and Celebrian by rysowAnia
Characters from "The Lord of the Rings" by J.R.R. Tolkien

edit: ok, this picture seems to be misunderstood sometimes - Celebrian is NOT dead here, this scene is supposed to show the moment Elrond realizes he can't heal her and that she'll have to sail to Valinor. She looks pretty dead but that is just the result of physical exhaustion and injuries combined with unconciousness/sleep/withdrawing into herself/no will to live in Middle-Earth - you get it. Sorry for creating any misunderstandings and thanks for dropping by to see this picture! :) If you still have doubts feel free to tell me :)

Tears  Must be a wonderful impression of the situation 'cause I feel like crying now...
Elrond's emotion is perfectly captured in his pose.

This is exactly how I imagined Elrond would feel. He's an expert healer. It must have broken his heart when he found that he could not fully heal the very person he loves the most. :( ;A;

Celebrian is only wounded in this picture right? Because she doesn't dies, she just goes Into the West because she can no longer live in Middle-Earth

That's right:) She isn't dead in my picture, she's unconscious/sleeping/looking almost dead after her ordeal. That's the moment Elrond realizes he can't heal her and will have to let her go into the West.

Hi. I'm just getting into the Lords of the Ring, et al - I'm sorry to be a downer - but Celebrian DUMPED Elrond. Yes. She did. The Orc attack was just a cover story. If a woman blows off a guy for a 1000 years - she's dumped him

awww poor Elrond. He gets captured by the enemy as a child and separated from his parents, watches his brother die, his wife goes into the West, his daughter marries a mortal... poor elf can't catch a break, can he? I feel so sorry for him.

So broken and sad. It's interesting and heartbreaking to see such a good elf on his knees like this. At least, he got to meet her again when he went West. None of their children followed (as far as we know) but at least, they will have each other and the rest of their family who are over there.

Beautiful! Celebrian looks like an elf who truly needs to go West.

ah, Celebrian didn't actually die. She just went to Valinor, if I remember correctly.

rysowAnia Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012
that's right, she didn't die :) But she could't be healed completely so I guess Elrond was quite unhappy and she could't look very healthy and beautiful after her time with orcs so maybe that's why she looks a bit like a corpse here. The idea was that she's sleeping/unconcious and Elrond is grieving because he realizes he can't heal her

You know what's cool about this pic? That THIS is the real Elrond, not the Agent Smith version.
