The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 10: Victory in Arda

21st February 2013 (14:15)

Doesn't time seem to pass so quickly sometimes? It's Thursday already...

Word List: Arda = Earth, the created world.






Part 10: Victory in Arda


Next time: Part 11: Springtime of Arda


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. Again, apologies to any Australians reading this for implying that your country's wildlife was designed by the Dark Lord Sauron.
Questions and comments welcome!

Hee! I like how all these folks are pairing off right around the first springtime. Mmhmm...

Exactly! :)

Though since they're all angelic spirits, it's not surprising if they're not too clear on what exactly is involved in physical relationships...

Platipy are demonic?

I knew it.

They're mammals but they lay eggs, and they have poisoned spurs. Clearly an early trial run by the guy who would go on to make orcs, trolls and Nazgûl...

It's all clear when you explain it...

I don't think Sauron made wombats, however. They're too cute. :)

Now I'm picturing the ringwraiths using platypi as... well, they're too small to be mounts, obviously, but kind of like surfboards. (Hence the flat tail.)

Black robes flapping in the ocean breeze as they hang ten off the Great Barrier Reef.

(And it just struck me that the island Melkor filled with spiders and snakes is Australia. Cool.)

Shortly after Varda created the Two Trees, Yavanna and Vana created the first coconut oil, Ray-Bans, and bikinis.

Consider that idea stolen. :)

(Though it was actually Nienna and Yavanna who made the Two Trees, not Varda. Varda collected the light from the Trees to make the stars, and later on she'll be the one to make the sun and moon; but growing plants is Yavanna's job.)
