Passing of the Evenstar - wide by Seleyah Passing of the Evenstar - wide by Seleyah
I saw the picture of the flowers and immediately thought of the passage from the Lord of the Rings appendixes, the Tale of Arwen and Aragorn. I abbreviated it and cut out some parts to fit it in. I've always thought her death to be so sad and lonely.

This version is 1680x1050. Click "download" to get the full size. Here is the companion 1024x768 piece [link]

Flower picture (I don't know!)
Arwen (an LotR website)

It is so very sad that she died alone, but Elrond warned her :P I'm glad she didn't pine away for years though.

Yes it is. And yes, I'm glad she didn't die slowly either.

I know it's supposed to be a good ending...Arwen and Aragorn are together for long years, have children and Aragorn dies at his own wish...but it's just that every time I read the Tale's ending about how Arwen dies it brings tears. It's so sad!
But hey, this is gorgeous work! Well done!

I agree with you!!! I have a love/hate relationship with good but sad endings. It's tragical! Thank you!
