The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 281 - A discouraging word

14th April 2016 (19:24)

If you remember, Vána's plan to revive th e/Trees by pouring out their liquid light on the roots failed, but it's been suggested that Yavanna (as the Vala of nature and the original creatrix of the Trees) should have bene there too, and it might have worked.

      The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 279 - Outpouring of grief

      31st March 2016 (23:42)

      How many people here killed Lisa the Plant by over-watering her?

      How many know what I'm talking about? :)

        The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 278 - Mooning over her

        28th March 2016 (21:49)

        in dfifferent versions of the story Arien is a Maia of either Vána or Varda. I think she fits better as a follower of Varda because of the fire-light connection, though she could certainly have assisted Vána from time to time on her projects.

          The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 277 - Vána's plan

          24th March 2016 (22:42)

          We last met Tilion and Arien back in #063-#064, three years ago. Vána's actions here are as described in the Book of Lost Tales.

            The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 276 - Going into hiding

            21st March 2016 (16:09)

            So — back to Valinor. We last saw these guys in #256, just after the Kinslaying of Alqualondë.

            The reactions of Vána and Aulë here are based on the Book of Lost Tales version of the story, which I'm going to be drawing on for extra details. Aulë is mad at the Noldor because he's taken their rebellion as a personal slight against him, after all the help and training he gave them.

            The hours are 'measureless' because without the Trees, there's no easy way to tell the time. :) (Though having said that, I wonder if the stars were already rising and setting once per solar day?)

              The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 275 - Hanging around

              17th March 2016 (15:40)

              The thought struck me that if you were going to make a blockbuster movie trilogy of the Silmarillion, Maedhros would make a good protagonist or POV character. He's the one non-Ainu who's involved in nearly all the major events of the First Age — often on the 'wrong' side despite him starting out as a decent guy morally speaking, which makes for a compelling character-based drama.

              Anyway, I'm afraid I'm going to leave him hanging here for a while, since the next section of the cartoon will go back to Aman to see what the Valar have been up to.

                    The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 272 - Bereavement

                    3rd March 2016 (22:55)

                    The book just says that 'an embassy' or 'emissaries' came from Morgoth in the hour of Fëanor's death, but it doesn't say who the emissary was. I assume it wouldn't be an orc or a Balrog, though. 'King of the World' was the title Morgoth took when he made the Iron Crown with the Silmarils in it.
