It's obvious, he was brought here on these stretchers covered with reed, which laid a little bit aside. Brought and laid here, at the foot of this tree. And Luthien probably was just here... She was waiting them from the hunting.
The waiting had come to an end.
He'd had a time to see her. His face set in a fixed smile was telling about this - agony couldn't wipe that smile. He'd had a time to touch her hand, they binded their fingers together for the last time and then his spirit had flied away.
Her maids had washed and dressed him, made his hair in order... and put him here. When we were carrying him, she was going nearby. holding his hand. And lied down on the grass beside the stretchers, still holding his hand.
Black hair tresses were mixed with grass stalks...
They lied together - hand in hand, head to head, like groom and bride in a wedlock bed. What a kind of wedding! The wedding Fritur was coming here for...


This is an illustration for the Russian Leithian-based fan novel "Beyond the dawn" by Olga Chigirinskaya.

They look so calm as if sleeping. Somehow it still doesn't make me sad because I know they were given a second chance for the kind of life they wanted. Mandos is grim but not merciless.

Nice. Really, really nice. Don't know anything about the fanfic, but methinks it works well enough with what I remember of the original :D

This scene in fanfic not strongly differs from the original.

Terribly beautiful...just...breath-taking...
I'm surprised I haven't commented on this before.
I thought I must have, because I often come back just to gaze at this beautiful depiction of the two lovers, able to be together at least in death - or the afterlife.
Anyway it's gorgeous, and I simply love it. Thank you so much for sharing this with us - it's remarkable to come across such a beautiful, and tragic, work of art. :clap:

Richard and Kahlan are such a sweet couple...
