The history of Middle-Earth (chibi version): Part 52: First contact

1st August 2013 (15:35)

The idea that Ingwë, Finwë, Elwë and Olwë were in fact the children of Imin, Tata and Enel is my own invention as far as I know; but why not? I also don't think it's canon that Elwë and Olwë were identical twins; but again, rule of cool applies.

Their parents (other than Enelyë the Final Girl) died/were Orcified when they were babies.

Next time: Part 53: Starchildren

"My name is Ingwë Malmsteen. You killed my father. Prepare to ROCK!"

(Sorry... it's the hair.)

Elwë and Olwë, twin founders of the House of Malfoy.

Olwë: "So what's your name, then?"

Oromë: "I am Oromë of the Valar..."

Enelyë: "Wait... are you the one responsible for all these damned umlauts?"

Oromë: "I... I can neither confirm nor deny..."

Enelyë: "I'm a thousand years old, and nobody's pronounced my name right yet."

Actually at this point she's a mere 350 years old. :)

I think Fëanor is responsible for the umlauts, actually. Him and Rúmil, since they invented writing. Fëanor has a lot to answer for...

Well, it would explain why we haven't seen any dragons yet (?)...

Ingwë killed them all. :)

(I'm impressed by the album cover, even though until an hour ago I'd never heard of this person...)

Ingwë Malmsteen - the man of whose guitar playing it was once said, on our local radio station, that he plays a lot of notes... some of them different.

In Sweden, Yngve Malmsten - sorry, "Yngwie Malmsteen" - is also famous as the probably most successful musician who's never learned to spell his own name. :)

(He's also famous for unleashing the fucking fury, but that's another story...)

Hmm 2

I do like Oromë's horse. Miriel has got the measure of the opposition already, then!

And the twins Elwë and Olwë are remarkably cute....

Well, if you go by 'Laws and Customs of the Eldar', once Miriel got married her husband became biologically incapable of being attracted to any other woman./

Not sure how far to take that, though... :)

I had to make a last-minute revision to the twins when I remembered they had silver hair, not black. Not sure where they get it from, since their genetic ancestry is pretty short.
