A Coin Has Been Tossed, ladies and non-ladies

I am so relieved that my fever might just drop

didn't sleep because stressing out because of the whole commission thing

absurd Silmarills headcanon

So the thing is, - and someone who actually knows Silmarillion canon will have to correct me, but I don't know if there's anyone here besides @gremlin-gal - that I'm getting mixed vibes. There is this quote that no one will know how exactly silmarills were made before Fёanor comes back, and yet they're said to be made from a "crystalline substance". Well, I have no idea what that means, but what if... epoxy?

Okay, hear me out. Epoxy resin... resin is essentially tar (natural or artificial). Tar comes from trees. The light of the Two Trees is contained in the Silmarills. So, theoretically, Fёanor could just cut each of the trees, get some tar... then, of course, he didn't have a silicone mold to just pour it in so he had to - first - make it harden somehow (because it takes years for tar to turn into amber? and it happens with the help of the seas to give it shape) and then give it shape. Which must have gotten a ton of work and probably a ton of some borderline magic stuff.

Now let's get real - of course, he had to ask Valar for permission to do that (namely Yavanna probably), but in the beginning, it all was about preserving the light, so they were all for it, but it's also understandable why no one could know about it. Because if people knew they would just start cutting up the trees (or demanding permission to do so from Valar since they're probably not that easy to cut in the first place). And I think eventually Fёanor starts to think of them as his creation entirely (think that part is canon?) so he doesn't reveal the origins of substance and whatnot

Okay now tolkienists can unleash your wrath no me I have no idea what I'm talking about

busy day today!! but i get most of the shit done

busy day today, might fork around and make an art advice post
