Ah - so that's how he escaped from behind the walls of night!

The first couple of times the Balrog pyramid collapsed, but eventually they got it right.

You may wonder why they didn't just fly over, if they had wings...

So Melkor's armies, like Anya's relatives, are all highly trained cirkus folk? This puts the balrog scene in LOTR in a whole new light. He just wanted an audience, the poor thing.

Well, his skills were probably rusty after 7000 years stuck in a cave underground. That's why he fell down the chasm instead of grabbing Gandalf with his whip and somersaulting over his head onto the other side...

Ha... poor Estë.

I was wondering if you'd find a chance to use the female balrog chibis.

The other Valar have used up all the available Sleep, so Estë has to wait until she can make some more...

And Melkor's Legions of Death are equal opportunity!

You're welcome either way. :)

(I'm not feeling much like writing a lot at present, but these cartoons let me be creative anyway, so I'm having fun with them.)
