The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 24: A small oversight

18th April 2013 (10:14)

Disclaimer: today's storyline isn't actually from Tolkien. I made it up. :) It is, however, Middle-Earth canon that female dwarves have beards (from birth, even, not just from puberty) and are basically indistinguishable from male dwarves to a casual glance.






Part 24: A small oversight



Next time: Part 25: Man's Dominion

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.
Questions and comments welcome!

This just makes me feel really, really sorry for poor Yavanna.

A side-effect of representing the Valar as chibis is that we start to think of them as having the maturity of eight-year olds as well. :)

Some people might say that sounds about right.

So basically, necessity is the invention of all mothers?
