* Most of the story of Eärendil and Elwing. 'Nuff said.Elwing, especially when Elwing insists on accompanying Eärendil onto Valinor, knowing that she may be calling the Valar's wrath onto her. Her willingness to do so ends up moving the Valar to mercy.

* In the bad guys's side, the Balrogs rescuing Melkor from Ungoliant. Granted, given it's the story of Arda what we are referring, you will be hard pressed to feel any sympathy for Morgoth and his demons, but it is still heartwarming to see that even the most miserable beings in the Middle Earth aren't devoid of things like loyalty and friendship. They could have left Melkor to be devoured and would have got away with it, but even so, the Balrogs chose to come to his aid not caring they would have to face an creature whose darkness was even mightier than theirs and who was feared by the Valar themselves. But not just that, they actually defeated her and drive her away from the known world. It is not there in the text, but you know Melkor afterwards felt so proud of them.

* Fingon rescuing Maedhros, despite believing that Maedhros had betrayed him.

to:

* Fingon rescuing Maedhros, despite believing that Maedhros had betrayed him. Even better, their relationship strayed good (a first for that family) until the bitter end. Maedhros also managed to stay friendly with the house of Fingolfin in general, not something you'd expect after being abandoned to cross the Helcaraxë.

** Also worth noting here is the fact that while Dwarves are certainly not portrayed in the best light, most being self-interested neutral types, they are by far the most difficult race for the Dark Powers to corrupt or trick. In fact, of the seven Dwarven kings who are given rings of power by Sauron, only two join him, another three stay out of it, and two are actually helping the Last Alliance, DESPITE the rings having been in their possession for centuries.

* The tale of Beren and Lúthien Tinúviel, a mortal man and an Elven princess fall in love. Lúthien's father sending Beren on an impossible quest, while imprisoning her couldn't keep them apart. [[BigBad Sauron]] imprisoning Beren couldn't keep them apart. Not even death itself could part them from each other! Interestingly, Lúthien was created in homage to Tolkien's wife, Edith Tolkien, while Beren was basically an AuthorAvatar. Tolkien even put "Beren" and "Luthien" on his and Edith's gravestones.
** Which is in itself really heartwarming, considering that Lúthien is considered the fairest Elf to have ever lived.

Interestingly, Lúthien was created in homage to Tolkien's wife, Edith Tolkien, while Beren was basically an AuthorAvatar. Edith was dark haired like Lúthien, while the elf's sacrifice of love was paralleled by Edith becoming a Catholic for Tolkien at the cost of estranging herself from her birth family.
