The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 11: Springtime of Arda

25th February 2013 (12:48)

For some reason the title of this instalment makes me want to sing songs from 'The Producers'...






Part 11: Springtime of Arda




Next time: Part 12: The chances of anything coming from the Void are a million to one...

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.
Relevant quote from 'Lord of the Rings': "When the Elves passed westward, Tom was here already, before the seas were bent. He knew the dark under the stars when it was fearless - before the Dark Lord came from Outside."
Questions and comments welcome!

Is that Tom Bombadil wandering around? :)

It certainly is!

Love how Ulmo is sitting in the Great Lake like a hot tub.

Also love how Bombadil looks like a colorblind leprechaun. :-)

There aren't many deep oceans yet; Ulmo has to make do with what he has. :)

Jeff Wayne references ftw. Now I'm retroactively imagining Richard Burton narrating this whole thing. And Phil Lynott as Tom Bombadil.

I resisted the temptation to have Melkor riding in a war tripod in the next episode. :)

Don't want to know!

I love Orome's hunting pink... stylish!

Also, I need to wash out my brain as I accidentally inserted the letter 'd' in the last word of Tom Bombadil's song and will never be able to think of Goldberry in quite the same light again.

I hadn't noticed that until you said it, and now I can't unsee it...

Though I'm intrigued by the "ring a dong" part that precedes it...
