Muwahahahahahaha! And I don't think I was even sane to begin with... yikes. :swoon:

Oh, that's a good one. Poor Maedhros. :(
I haven't been able to find all that many good Maedhros fanfics, but I do like this poem here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4176192/1/Maedhros_Wept

*is joining, because Maedhros=love*
I don't have any good fanfiction, but I do have a couple good pictures

http://gold-seven.deviantart.com/art/Ma ... e-19436026

Definately one of the better artworks of Maedhros. There's so much emotion in this piece. I especially love how well the artist really portrayed that Maedhros wasn't feeling too happy chained to the cliff.

ARG! There's another picture of Maedhros that's probably my favorite, but I can't find it. Its a pretty simple drawing, but its gorgeous. Its a rough sketch, either with pen, pencil, or a single color of paint (though now that I think of it there may have been a couple colors in it) of Maedhros, but its very detailed. Its just a drawing of his face. But I can't find it, and its making my angry

EDIT: I FOUND IT! After much anger and tearing of garments, I finally managed to track down this much beloved Maedhros artwork. I especially love the eyes.

Well, I'm fairly sure its Maedhros. The title of this peice is Wydziedziczony (polish for disinheritance') but I'm pretty much positive that when I last found this, someone had said this was a picture of Maedhros. And I found it on another site as well that labled this as a picture of Maedhros ( http://elendili.pl/viewtopic.php?start=25&t=1884 , scroll about halfway down)

Haha, that makes sence now. I didn't see the english button. But I'm glad that I know its Maehdros. That's still my favorite picture of him.

And yeah, the resque picture is pretty amazing as well. I like how grey Maehdros looks. Like he REALLY REALLY isn't feeling to hot. And his chapped lips... I wan't to put chapstick on just looking at it.

O_O I just poked my head in to see what you guys were 'discussing' and wow. I think I'm scarred. My perceptions of these characters will never, ever be the same again.

When I first read The Silmarillion, five years ago when I was 13, I formed a crush on Maedhros without really realising it. I remember actually making a post on the old Proboards A-U at the time, in which I referred to him as "my dear, dear Maedhros" :P Then, for several years (despite two more readings in that time) it lay dormant. And now, for reasons I'm not quite sure of, it's been reawoken.

So you have no idea how delighted I am to find people of like mind :P I don't know quite what it is about him that appeals... He's a tortured hero, which always seems to make males strangely sexy :P And a lot of the bad that happened to him wasn't of his making. Ok, so he participated in the Kinslaying, but then felt his father had betrayed him by burning the ships at Losgar, and he felt genuine remorse for that and for Fingon his friend. He tried to make amends, such as the Union, and tried to get the Silmarils back from first Dior and then Elwing without conflict. And when he was captured and taken to Angband, it was the result of Morgoth double-crossing him after he'd gone to meet his forces to try to strike some kind of peace treaty. His poor hand :( And of course his fiery ending, which was so tragic; essentially he died because of his father's greed. Oh, and then there's that flame-red hair...

Ahem. Yes... I'll go now before the men in white coats appear :tongue:

I love Maedhros! I wanna join the club!

First I fell in love with his name then I fell in love with him.

When I first read, "Therefore Morgoth took Maedhros and hung him from the face of a precipice upon Thangorodrim..." I was like 'nooooo! he killed the guy with the cool name! I was starting to like him.' then I read on, "...and he was caught to the rock by the wrist of his right hand in a band of steel." I was like 'Oh good, the guy with the cool name's not dead after all'. Then it got to the part where he's asking Fingon to kill him, and I'm like 'nooooo! I really was starting to like this guy'. And then he survives and I'm like 'yay!' and then I read: "Maedhros begged forgiveness for the desertion in Araman; and he waived his claim to kingship over all the Noldor, saying to Fingolfin: 'If there lay no grievance between us, lord, still the kingship would rightly come to you, the eldest here of the house of Finwë, and not the least wise'" and I'm like "Awwwww".

And that's the story of how Maedhros became my favorite Tolkien character of all time.

Here's my favorite favorite picture of him:

and here's another of my favorites:
