The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 38: Naming of parts

6th June 2013 (20:50)

The title is a reference to .the Henry Reed poem, and has no smutty implications about the Elvish names for various parts. :)




Part 38: Naming of parts



Next time: Part 39: The social contract.

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.

Tindómë

Enelyë is now my heroine. I'm pretty sure that Tindómë would agree with me totally!

She's kind of my heroine too. :) And she has quite a lot to say over the course of the next few episodes...

So when Bob Dylan sang about how Man gave names to all the animals (in the beginning, long time ago), he was referring to the gender rather than the race?

Maybe Bob Dylan's Tom Bombadil. It would explain some things.

Well, of course. The animals were named by the Elves, not the humans, so 'man' has to mean 'male (Elf)'...

Also, now I'm going to have to imagine 'hey dol derry dol derry dol dillo' sung with a harmonica break in the middle.

Those Threes just don't seem to fit in.

Enelyë seems like the elves' equivalent of Yavanna. Gotta watch those tree-hugging hippies.

The Vanyar (Ones) are either blonde bimboes or suspiciously regimented and power-hungry Aryans; the Noldor (Twos) are nerds and the Teleri (Threes) are rebels. Seems accurate. :)
