Random silliness

11th December 2015 (01:21)

So on a forum elsewhere on the internet, someone asked for "A Delacroix verson of the Flight of the Noldor". So here we go:



Mind you, you'd think Finrod would warn his sister that she's had a wardrobe malfunction...

whitecat1 wtf

Erm, yeah. *Wardrobe malfunction* indeed. I guess that maybe it means they actually looked at her face?

Personally, if I were there I'd be more concerned at watching my feet to keep from tripping over any of those dead Teleri...

Having just viewed an extensive Delacroix exhibition, this had me totally laughing at my desk this afternoon. Too damned funny!!!

Absolutely - "Liberty Leading the People". (I suppose I should actually follow your link and find out if I'm correct - LOL.

Well done!
It seems to me as if you may have rather different associations with this meme than I do. (I encountered an earlier iteration on Tumblr.)

Thanks! I didn't know it was a meme?

Searching Google Image search, was it this picture you saw before?

Yes, I'm pretty sure that's the one. If that's all you found, I suppose technically perhaps it isn't a meme, then. But I'd be surprised if the request was an entire coincidence.
They declared a day in celebration of the Flight of the Noldor on Tumblr, some time ago--I forget which date it was and what exactly they called it--and this picture was re-blogged a great many times. Most of the Tumblrites who re-blogged seemed to have stronger pro-Feanorian sympathies than I gather you do.
Readers' reactions to the different aspects of Feanor's speech in Tirion vary quite a lot, of course.
