The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 267 - Battle under stars

4th February 2016 (13:35)

So I wonder if the Noldor really did have eyes that glowed with light, or if it's a metaphor?

For scenes like this, I imagine how ridiculously overpowered Legolas was in the Peter Jackson movies' battle scenes; then picture an entire army of elves who are even more over the top badasses...

      The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 265 - Second Battle of Beleriand

      28th January 2016 (15:05)

      The orcs with further to travel will, of course, get there later than the others. But it shouldn't matter, because they massively outnumber the elves...

      By my calculations, Fëanor probably has about 10,000 warriors in his army at this point. (How many civilians he has following him is more of a moot point!)

        (Fic) Tying the Knot

        18th January 2016 (17:03)

        This is a direct sequel to Rite of Passage, the story I posted just before Christmas. That fic covered the day before Nerdanel's marriage to Fëanor, as seen from the perspective of her chief handmaiden. This fic involves the same characters, one day and one Royal Wedding later.


        Title: Tying the Knot
        Fandom: The Silmarillion
        Characters: Lissiel (OFC), Nerdanel, Fëanor, Nienna, and many hundreds of wedding guests
        Wordcount: 3075
        Rating/Warnings: General, no warnings needed. Some minor references to sexual behaviour, the consumption of alcohol, and dancing.

        The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 264 - Convergence

        14th January 2016 (20:28)

        I wonder if the Sindar realised that their language had changed from Quenya to Sindarin during the 3000 years or so they were separated from the other Eldar, or if they assumed they were still speaking Quenya?

          The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 263 - Crossing the ice

          11th January 2016 (19:34)

          Realistically, Elenwë was probably trapped beneath an overturned ice floe or something like that, but that would be hard to draw.

          Elves have limited powers of telepathy (ósanwë) especially between spouses or close family or friends. Useful if you're underwater.

            The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 262 - You're not serious

            7th January 2016 (16:30)

            The description of the Helcaraxë in the published Silmarillion is fairly mundane, making it sound more like the Bering Straits. But the description in the Ambarkanta that Tolkien wrote in the 1930s is much more metal, so I've gone with it here. Plus, it makes sense in a flat world.

              Partially-frozen Niagara Falls. Now imagine the water pouring over the edge of a flat earth into the void, and freezing in the cold of space.

              The History of Middle-earth (chibi version) - Part 261 - Left behind

              4th January 2016 (12:08)

              Happy new year!

              Though I don't think Fingolfin and his followers are having a happy year at all...  Elves really must have excellent eyesight if they can see a fire from the other side of the not-Atlantic; though admittedly the world is still flat at this point, so there's no actual horizon yet. Just, presumably, blurring due to distance (and mountains blocking the view for people at ground level, but that doesn't apply to looking over an ocean).
