I'm not deaaaad ! I survived the exams xD Sorry I had to abandon you. It had been a tough week and I was in a bad mood so I drew a sad thing.
I have 3 days of vacations before going back to the university (though I don't know if i'll be able to go there...it's snowing so much O___o )

I had that scene in my head for a while. It takes place not long after Galadriel left for Valinor. Celeborn is reigning alone as King of East Lorien. But he grew weary of that situation and this is when he decides to go to Rivendell (those who read the books may understand).

I hope you like it...





Gotta go, I have many things to do xD ... like sleeping :lmao:

Poor Celeborn. This is so sad, but so pretty. . . . I like that the only vibrant color is in his eyes, and that everything else is dark. I wish Tolkien had written about their reunion.

I'm surprised no one has commented on this yet O.o
I really like how blue this is, actually XD
Very emotional, with Galadriel's silhouette and the close-up of Celeborn's face.
Very nice^^

in the movies only...in the book only Galadriel left with Frodo, Gandalf and Elrond. Celeborn stayed becaus ehe was too deeply attached to Middle Earth and also because he needed to take care of the elves remaining there... after only few years, he grew weary of his new realm and went to dwell in Rivendell with his grandsons and eventually sails :)

it gives something deeper to their relationship somehow...I find this parting sad but I think that if it had not happened, I would not have liked the pairing this much :)

Oh I didn't know that! It does give them more depth! Rather beautiful and tragic. At lest it comes out right in the end though. :)

thanks ^^ you're right poor Celeborn, as the old elves of Middle Earth, he suffered a lot and it must have been even harder without his wife with him

Do they ever get reunited? I don't remember what happens after Galadriel goes to the Undying lands.

Yes it is pretty sure that he finnaly left and joined his wife and his daughter. In the LoTR's prologue we can read "It is said that Celeborn went to dwell there [Rivendell] after the departure of Galadriel; but there is no record of the day when he at last sought the Grey Heavens, and with him went the last living memory of the Elder Days in Middle-Earth"
