In The Lord of the Rings, the sequence in which the protagonists most intensely experience Faeiran drama is when they look in Galadriel's mirror.
It might be added that this is undoubtedly true of Middle-earth as well: even with its 'joyous turn' in The Lord of the Rings, the extended denouement of the novel evokes the sense of the mere fleeting respite from evil, more evidence that the imaginary world stands on terra firma.
And, in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, the
eagles of the mountains swoop down, angel-like, to deliver the heroes from ruin.
