The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 4: Discord

31st January 2013 (16:05)
Tags: , ,

First, thanks to everyone who commented on my last HoME:CV posting. Sorry for not replying individually this time (I kind of spent much of the first part of this week relaxing, um, I mean convalescing,  in bed...) , but your comments were definitely appreciated.

Back to the originally planned bi-weekly schedule of posting! In this, the fourth episode of the History of Middle Earth (Chibi version), Melkor gets rebellious.

Which, as an aside, makes me wonder if Tolkien would see fanfic writers (and directors of movie adaptations) as playing the role of Melkor, selfishly introducing their own themes and characters into the Great Work planned and devised by the Author? Though maybe it's okay by him as long as you only embellish, and not corrupt the underlying spirit of the work.





Part 4: Discord


Next time: Part 5: Battle of the Bands


Chibis by tektek.org
Original story by and copyright to J R R Tolkien, ed. C Tolkien: Primarily based on the Silmarillion, but incorporating ideas from the 12-volume History of Middle Earth series.
Mairon is better known in Tolkien's stories under a different name, but that's what he was originally called back in the beginning.
Questions and comments welcome!

You know, that line about "growing" honey bees and turtle doves never made sense before, but if it's a bunch of angels singing it... why not. We are all in Erú's greenhouse, yea, unto him we are but prize tomatoes.

But each tomato is special to him! :)

So Sauron began his career as Melkor's drummer during the Ainulindale. Awesome.

Melkor is an antichrist. Melkor is an anarchist. Don't know what he wants, but he knows how to get it. He wants to destroy passersby.

In fact, he wants to BE anarchy. It's the only way to be.

Mairon is the character I had most fun with while writing this. :)

And your guess as to what song Melkor will be singing in next week's comic is pretty close. :)
